Enterprise Licencing Annual Subscription
How does Enterprise Licencing work?
An Enterprise Licence is a special licence key of Bluebeam Revu designed to help manage computer turnover. It does two things:
- Automatically releases registered computers that have failed to communicate with our licencing server for 15 days.
- Provides a temporary 5% overage of the total number of allowed installations.
other words, once a machine takes up a seat by registering to an
Enterprise Licence, it will periodically ping Bluebeam's Licencing
Server to confirm that it is still active. If the machine fails to
communicate with the server for a period of 15 days, it will
automatically be released from the licence key, freeing up the seat to
be registered to another machine. The 5% overage, or cushion, allows for
the lag time between re-imaging workstations or releasing inactive
seats. If you exceed the overage allowance, an "exceeded licences"
warning will appear, and further installations will be restricted.
benefit of Enterprise Licencing is that there is no longer a need to
manually uninstall or release seats from workstations that are being
transferred, phased out or re-imaged. This Enterprise Licencing option
takes care of that for you, ensuring that your licenced seats are fully
utilised. Also, because it is managed with Bluebeam servers, there is no
need to install or maintain anything locally.

How do I know if I have used all my licences? Is there a charge for going over?
an Enterprise Licence, you gain access to the Bluebeam Gateway, a web
portal for viewing and managing both Enterprise and Open Licences. The
Bluebeam Gateway allows you to view how many seats of each version and
edition you own, how many computers, or "seats," are registered to each
licence, and which computers they are.
As long as your total
number of registered machines per edition does not exceed the total
number of seats allowed plus the 5% overage allowance, you are good! If
you are approaching or exceeding your limit, you can purchase additional
seats or unregister licences from computers as needed. Any new seats
purchased may take up to 24 hours to update and appear in the Gateway.
