About Meridian

Meridian streamlines engineering document management to ensure safety and compliance, maximize company-wide collaboration, and provide a single source of truth for operations and maintenance teams. Meridian is a powerful, purpose-built engineering document management system (EDMS) that can transform your operations.

Key features:

Controlled Digital Workflows
Our engineering document control capabilities allow users to pass through pre-defined review and approval steps to make document changes. This helps maintain compliance, control changes, prevent human error, and ensure all boxes are checked.

Electronic Print Stamps and Watermarks
Every time you view, modify, or print a GMP document in Meridian, a print stamp and watermark will be automatically generated on each PDF rendering of the document with key timing information. So you’ll never have to worry about having the “correct version” in your hands, and your team will always have the most up-to-date version. 

Mobile Capabilities
Employees need to be able to access important documentation on the go, remotely, or in multiple places at once. With Meridian’s online access, users can see asset information – and all related documentation at once – from any device.

Electronic Signatures
When a GMP document is put into a workflow, it must pass through a series of reviews. As each user reviews or approves the document, their digital signature is manifested on the PDF rendition of the document in the order they signed. These workflows help ensure that the right people review and approve the document, simplify document management, and build an immutable audit trail.

Clear Audit Trail
By centralizing documentation and ensuring compliance to change management standards, Accruent engineering document management software provides a clear and accurate audit trail — including asset life information and detailed document history — that can reduce risk, help maintain document security and simplify compliance processes.

Work Order Management
Meridian EDMS provides a single source of engineering truth for all documents related to a work order. It also provides multiple ways to search for all types of critical documents, drawings, and associated assets. A user can find documents via tag scan, location, asset name, and many other identifiers. With a few clicks, maintenance teams will have all the information needed to complete the job efficiently.

Comprehensive CAD Management
Meridian EDMS is purpose-built to allow users to store, maintain, and update interrelated or interdependent CAD files, BIM models, drawings, schematics, and other documentation. This — along with features like digital workflows, audit trails and a defined feedback process — can help all users simplify compliance and understand who made decisions, when.

CMMS and ERP Integrations
Even with a robust CMMS platform, there’s often critical documentation — like complex engineering documents, facility documentation, CAD drawings and technical documents — that can’t be readily accessed or updated. Connecting Meridian to your CMMS system can help you easily access all your critical information and share field-related changes to document owners with ease.

Controlled External Document Exchange
Meridian simplifies project document change and external sharing using a controlled digital process — both to and from contractors and company-shared services. It also eliminates the need to use uncontrolled or unsanctioned tools such as Dropbox, network drives, email, or FTP sites.

Key benefits of Meridian

Efficient engineering document control: Engineering documentation is often unstructured, dispersed across various systems, constantly changing, and needed by many departments at once. Meridian is able to track parallel changes, streamline concurrent engineering, and keep your engineering projects under control.  

Optimized operations: Access to a centralized repository allows you complete control over all critical assets, facility, and engineering documentation, including complex technical manuals, computer-aided design (CAD) drawings, project files, and more.

Enhanced safety: Meridian’s centralized repository provides instant access to the most up-to-date Master documentation, which is critical when responding to an asset or plant emergency.

Improved collaboration: Meridian’s accessible, centralized, and transparent information helps every department in your business — including engineering, maintenance and operations, capital projects, IT, and external contractors — work together to get the job done.

Reduced costs and downtime: Avoid asset failures and plant shutdowns by always having the most accurate engineering information. Meridian ensures more effective and efficient routine and unplanned maintenance for greater business continuity, asset uptime, and a decrease in labor costs. It also mitigates risk so you can avoid health and safety incidents.

Scalable platform: Meridian’s engineering document management software supports the entire enterprise versus just one plant or location. Meridian scales for the enterprise with its ability to manage hundreds of thousands of interrelated documents, drawings, and information throughout its entire document lifecycle.

I am working with this software since more than 20 years today and I am very familiar with functionnalities and issues. When a new functionnality is implemented, it is less likely to be mature at first. Support time response from your engineering department need to be improved. Being supported by a third party makes too much layer to get support from Engineering department. Aligning schedule of everyone make anoying delays on response time. Over all we still had a good experience and we are very proud of having this software so far.

Pros

It is integrated with software on user side
It can manage CAD files
Capability to work remotely and off line
BIM in mind for the future

Cons

Support for bugs or issues are very long to get resolved when it hits Accruent engineering department.
Lack of explanation or documentation on how to use the Power interface remotely with CAD sofware integration.
There is no clear details how best to use it with Autodesk products especially in our case with Inventor.
We often find issues on new release version and it get frustated to see the time it takes to get issues fixed.
Being supported by a third party, it get hard to be supported by Accruent on a timely manner.

Good softwareproduct with lots of opportunities

Good softwareproduct with lots of opportunities

Pros

The system is very versatile and has many functionalities

Cons

Because of the many functionalities, it is important to clearly define what you are using it for.
The disadvantage is the implementation that was done in our case by a third party. It would be better for BlueCielo to take care of the implementation process itself.

Average to above average overall. Keeps sustaining AutoCAD drawings organized and locked down. Great use of revision history comparison.

Pros

Organizes sustaining drawings well and work flow in handing off and releasing to production with multiple duplicate copies made for other locations.

Cons

Hard to find stuff even with the search feature. Very clunky adding files and the wizard use. Upgrading is difficult.

The centralization of all technical documents gives each college the same source.
In the next phase we will consider to stop with hard copies.

Pros

Keyrole in centralisation of documents with great and strong search options.

Cons

The struggle during the implementation, which is partly still there.
