Bluescape Enterprise plugins connect into Adobe Creative Cloud and Adobe XD for real-time visual and digital workspace collaboration

Bluescape, a leading collaboration workspace solution,announced today the availability of Bluescape Plugins for the Adobe Creative Cloud. Design teams can now collaborate in real time and streamline the review process for faster results. Creative professionals can seamlessly export their work, download images and collect real-time feedback in Bluescape workspaces directly from Adobe, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and XD. .

UX|UI Designers can work, meet and connect using Bluescape plugin for Adobe XD to drive the UX|UI design cycle faster, taking a project from concept, through design to final product, with real-time sharing of content and project updates.

Designers agree that mundane and repetitive tasks of creating and updating designs while keeping team members updated can cause issues with version control, time delays and miscommunications. People become distracted and it impacts creative flows.

There’s time wasted as designers fumble back and forth through email uploads and downloads, using different applications and content management systems to find the right content to share, review and finalize. There’s time lost doing work where siloed applications and content fail to integrate or decision making gets stalled. Compute the total time lost and it’s staggering.

For UX|UI designers, Bluescape offers real-time digital collaboration capabilities for Adobe XD.

  • In a Bluescape hosted meeting, designers can make real-time and streamlined changes in Adobe XD, click on the plug-in button to easily and seamlessly export content into a Bluescape digital workspace for immediate sharing and review. More than 10 tedious steps are eliminated.
  • Within the Bluescape workspace, teams can instantly see the work being done in real time in Adobe XD (a shared desktop window) while also viewing content, notes and drawings in a Bluescape workspace.
  • Designers can add real-time comments in Adobe XD and it instantly posts the comments in Bluescape for shared notifications and tracking.
  • Images and content located in a Bluescape workspace can be easily exported back into Adobe XD for additional design work.“Designers using Adobe XD gain enhanced productivity with Bluescape’s digital workspace that they never had before,” said Vijay Vachani, Director, Head of Partner Platform & Ecosystem, Creative Cloud at Adobe. “The ability for the tools to work together visually and simultaneously, while viewing design changes as it happens in XD, takes design cycles to a whole different level.”

“Designers using Adobe XD gain enhanced productivity with Bluescape’s digital workspace that they never had before,” said Vijay Vachani. “The ability for the tools to work together visually and simultaneously, while viewing design changes as it happens in XD, takes design cycles to a whole different level.”

“With Bluescape plugin for Adobe XD, teams are more productive as design cycles move faster,” said Peter Jackson, CEO at Bluescape. “Designers are working more naturally and creatively as they collaborate in our workspace. Whether they’re in the meeting room or participating remotely, everyone contributes. They discover new ways to collaborate and stimulate design thinking.”

Teams Connect and Collaborate Better

With Bluescape, content sharing and tasks run faster. Teams can communicate with each other and post comments, enabling designers to respond and work immediately rather than wait hours for the next draft or set of directions.

All documents, multimedia and images in a Bluescape workspace can be saved and retrieved for later use. Meeting workspaces can be saved and copied to create the next meeting’s space. Design teams now have a record and historic timeline of their entire project, meetings and decisions to refer to.
