One Serial Number, Multiple Users

Open Licensing for Bluebeam Software, often referred to as “Floating Licenses” or “Network Licenses” is an annual subscription, priced according to volume. Bluebeam Revu 20 Extreme – New Open License Subscription may be added to an existing Open License serial number at any time. New seats will be prorated based on the renewal date and cumulative volume.

Active subscriptions receive unlimited access to the Bluebeam Technical Support Team as well as Orange Blade Consultants’ Support team and timely product upgrades.  Open Licenses required an Open License Agreement in place. Please complete the required Revu Extreme Open License Agreement and email to


How It Works

1. Simply launch Revu to request a seat from the Bluebeam Gateway, a web-accessible portal where licenses are hosted and managed.
2. If a seat is available, the Gateway automatically allocates it to the user and authorizes Revu to run on that computer. This is not a named-user license as the PC is authorized to run Bluebeam Revu regardless of the person using it.
3. Once all available seats are in use, the Gateway limits further requests for Revu to run.
4. When an active user closes Revu, the Gateway automatically retrieves the seat and immediately makes it available for others to access.
