BlueFingerprint® is powered by Canvis™, a software and services company providing the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industries with simple visual solutions that improve inefficient processes and boost the bottom line.
Canvis began as an effort of one of America’s largest commercial general contractors, who, in 2001, saw the need for a better solution to the existing paper/email process of managing selections for multi-family residential and Life Plan Community construction. With widespread industry collaboration, they developed a web-based solution called BlueFingerprint.
The mission of Canvis is to create simple, visual software tools to help eliminate the problems of persistent cost overruns, missed deadlines, poor communication and mistakes. Each new product we develop is backed by expert service that allows you to better serve the needs of your customers.
