Engineering Information Management is about managing all your ASSET related information and documentation – Meridian on-premise or cloud does this with seamless integrations between EAM, CAFM, CMMS and GIS systems. 
Meridian provides a single source of truth, configurable workflows to streamline collaboration with all internal departments and ensures every document change is versioned.
Meridian Cloud is also SOC 2 Type II Certified ensuring your critical asset data is safe, accurate and available when needed. 

1. Direct Linkage to CMMS – e.g. Maximo, Ultimo, Infor, SAP PM

  • Meridian Enterprise provides the necessary control over documents, their revisions, workflow, and approval along with managing links to externally referenced documents.
  • When integrated with a maintenance management system, the two systems work together to provide a comprehensive solution that eliminates costly errors caused by working with incorrect or obsolete tag information or documents.


Asset Tagging For Documents

  •  Meridian links asset information obtained from a maintenance management system to documents shown in Meridian Enterprise. This provides convenient access to asset data to engineering users and other departments  

2. Linkages to GIS and ECM systems (Sharepoint)

    • Integrate with 3rd party technologies such as GIS Mapping, BIM and ECM systems (e.g. Sharepoint) in order to optimise the control and management of your Digital Assets.
    • Easily connect Meridian with your geospatial data from GIS platforms (such as Esri, Google Maps, GE Smallworld) and integrate further with BIM technologies (such as BIM 360) to close the digital loop and gain direct access from your BIM model to real-time Asset Data within your Engineering Document Management System.

  • Enhance your teams’ efficiency by integrating your Engineering Document Management system with business applications like Microsoft Office, SharePoint and email to provide a single source of truth for all engineering information.
