Houston, Texas - January 6, 2016 - Kinder Morgan Terminals has selected ACAD-Plus to implement BlueCielo Meridian for their engineering document and data management needs.
Kinder Morgan requires secure electronic storage for all drawings and documents created and received by the Technical Services organization. All files must include searchable metadata to facilitate quickly locating files for viewing, printing, and editing. KM wishes to initially focus on storing drawings and certain critical documents pertaining to projects and operational activities on the terminals. These drawings and documents are the highest priority because they provide significant benefits during the ongoing projects and maintenance in the facilities. However, the initial implementation will also include the ability to store and manage standards and templates. A migration wizard will be created allowing the user to drag and drop files from the unstructured vault into the new structured vault. When a document is migrated the new document wizard will be employed to fully describe each file using the new properties.
