Houston, Texas - December 23 2014 - ACAD-Plus has been selected to implement Meridian for Duke University. Duke's Facilities organization requires a solution to securely store electronic drawings and documents created and received by the university. All files must include searchable indexing and descriptions to facilitate quickly locating files for viewing, printing, and editing. Duke wishes to initially focus on storing drawings and technical documents pertaining to projects and sustaining activites on buildings and the site infrastructure. These drawings and documents are the highest priority because they provide significant benefits during the ongoing projects and maintenance in the facilities. The initial implementation will also include migrating files from existing archives and spreadsheets into the Meridian solution. Meridian will directly integrate with the Infor EAM system.
