Houston, Texas – September 30, 2011 – Paton Controls, a process engineering company, today announced its intention to implement Meridian for its drawing/document management solution.
Paton requires secure electronic storage for all drawings and documents created and received in the company. A multi-site implementation strategy is critical in order to properly serve the current and potential future sites and facilitate the sharing of workload between the sites. The Channelview and Port Arthur offices will be implemented first, with Sarnia following in a subsequent phase. All files stored in Meridian will include searchable indexing and descriptions to facilitate quickly locating files for viewing, printing, editing, and transmitting. Paton wishes to initially focus on storing drawings and documents pertaining to the Engineering department. These drawings and documents are the highest priority because they provide significant benefits during the ongoing projects. The initial implementation will also include some ability to store standards, contracts, proposals, and other administrative documentation for other departments. Full support for other departments will likely require minor configuration modifications that will be completed a subsequent phase.
One of the primary requirements for Paton is the ability to handle transmitting documents and packages of documents to their customers as part of their work flow process. Transmittals will be created based on Excel templates which can be created and modified by Paton. The system will support an unlimited number of Excel transmittal templates allowing transmittals to be configured as required for each customer.
