Meridian product overview

What is 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 benefits of using 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.

Managinng technical drawings and documents

Reviewed 3 years ago

Support is excellent for this application. The consultants are extremely helpful.

Pros

Documents kan be saved to vaults with the same hierarchy needed to interface with an asset management application.

Cons

There is a fairly steep learning curve in order to use all of the functions of this application adequately.

Meridian software review

Reviewed 2 months ago

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.

Multidimensional document management system

Reviewed 4 years ago

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.

General thoughts

Reviewed 2 months ago

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.

In controle of (technical) documents

Reviewed 4 years ago

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.
