Revu Licensing Models

Bluebeam Revu 20 and below offers three different kinds of licenses for Revu. To identify the license type you have, check your serial number:

  • Perpetual license numbers begin with 1###### (ex: 1334567).
  • Enterprise licenses begin with 980#### (ex: 9804567).
  • Open licenses begin with 960#### (ex: 9604567).
Bluebeam is moving Revu from a licensing and maintenance model to a subscription model. For more information, see the Bluebeam Subscription FAQ.

Perpetual Licensing

Perpetual licenses register Revu to an individual workstation using a serial number and product key. After a one-time purchase, a perpetual license will never expire.

Enterprise Licensing

Enterprise licenses are designed to manage computer turnover by:

  • Automatically releasing registered computers that haven’t communicated with our licensing server after 15 days.
  • Providing a temporary 5% overage of the total number of allowed installations.

This licensing model is available for all editions of Revu and includes a Maintenance subscription.

Open Licensing

Open licenses are a cloud-based solution only available via Revu eXtreme that allow a company to share a common pool of licenses with multiple users and devices. When Revu is opened, a license is checked out from a shared pool of seats. The seat is checked back in whenever Revu is closed, or switched to View mode. Maintenance is included with every Open License purchase.
