SAN FRANCISCO, CA, 1/15/2014 - Ideate, Inc., an Autodesk Authorized Developer and leading Autodesk solutions provider offering quality software, training, support and custom consulting services to the AEC industry, announced today that Ideate has been awarded Platinum Partner status by its strategic partner, Bluebeam Software. Meredith Jung, Channel Sales Specialist at Bluebeam Software, presented a plaque in acknowledgment of the award to Ideate President Bob Palioca at the Ideate-hosted joint Customer Appreciation Luncheon and Holiday Party held at the Autodesk Gallery, One Market Street, San Francisco, California on December 10, 2013.

Tim Teigen, AEC Sales, Ideate Inc. says about Bluebeam, “At Ideate, we are always looking to partner with technology firms whose solutions expand yet simplify the workflow of our customers. With Bluebeam, we’ve found a product that is powerful way beyond its price point and gives our clients tools that legitimately and easily promote collaboration and coordination on any size project.”

“We are delighted to receive this acknowledgment from our valued partner Bluebeam,” says Bob Palioca. “Our partnered relationship has streamlined customer access to Ideate software solutions, training and consulting services and virtualization. The right tools and solutions can be within customer reach faster and easier thanks to this alliance.”

"For Bluebeam Authorized Resellers, meeting and exceeding sales goals is just a part of the challenge," says Stacey Kirsch, Bluebeam Software Channel Marketing Manager. "To be named a Bluebeam Platinum Partner, our resellers must also complete a comprehensive, video-based training program called the Bluebeam Crash Course, and impress our internal Channel Sales team with their knowledge of our flagship product, Revu. As a result, our Bluebeam Platinum Partners do not just sell our products, they partner with our end users to integrate Bluebeam solutions into their processes and achieve real results."
