Improve Engineering Information in the Field to Ensure Employee Safety

cloud2Fast, simple access to reliable engineering information is essential for new projects and operational facilities

Increasingly, more and more users are relying primarily on their mobile devices to complete their jobs. Mobile technology can make things easier and more productive in the workplace. The lack of mobile functionality for workers in the field puts employees at risk and makes it cumbersome for maintenance teams to prepare for visits on-site.

Leveraging the functionality of a mobile application allows employees to overcome crunch-time scenarios in their working environments.

Consider this scenario: it's 5:00 pm and an employee is nowhere near the office, but they must add critical comments to a document before a 6:00 pm deadline to ensure that a contractor can access it in the morning. The deadline is non-negotiable and if not met, the project will be delayed. 

Or this one: an employee is at an off-site meeting all day without access to their computer. A co-worker calls for approval to changes within a document. The updated document must be shared with maintenance in order to complete three important work orders. Without access to the engineering document management functionality via their phone, they must wait until they can access their computer to approve the changes, creating a backlog of work for maintenance. 

Both these situations can be avoided with a mobile document management system in place. 

Meridian Mobile is an Engineering Document Management System dedicated to helping facilitate the process that engineering drawing and document information demand. It ensures safety for employees by providing immediate access to their engineering information anytime, anywhere. Meridian Mobile eliminates printouts and gains instant access to asset information with mobile devices, navigates and maintains the relationship between documents, and CAD models.

With a solution that ensures access to internal documents at any time, organizations can expedite project delivery confidently and increase operational efficiency.

With Meridian Mobile, users can stay informed, compliant, and in control of their engineering drawing and document data while they are away from their desk. With these mobile capabilities, they can get access to view and approve asset documents from their iOS, Android, or Windows phones or tablets, and users can take swift action on their workflow tasks from anywhere at any time.

With Meridian Mobile, users have mobile access to: 

  • A secure, user-authenticated, and rights management mobile solution
  • A cloud-based “My To-Do List” that ensures nothing is overlooked
  • Document properties review
  • Content with thumbnail images
  • Available PDF renditions
  • Action workflow items
  • Ability to add comments with actions
  • Open source documents in other apps
  • Ability to configure Meridian to align with specific workflows and best practices

The restraints of a non-mobile capable engineering document management solution are no longer viable for an organization that is dedicated to fulfilling their project needs efficiently. Using an engineering document management mobile solution provides the flexibility an organization needs to complete an engineering project on time and on budget.
