Houston, Texas – July 11, 2011 – ACAD-Plus was awarded the contract from Oklahoma State University (OSU) to implement a Facilities Drawing/Document Management solution.
OSU requires secure electronic storage for drawings and documents received by the Facilities Information organization. All files must include searchable indexing and descriptions to facilitate quickly locating files for viewing, printing, and editing. OSU wishes to initially focus on storing drawings and documents pertaining to the record-set information received during design and construction projects on buildings and the campus infrastructure. These drawings and documents are the highest priority because they provide significant benefits during the ongoing maintenance of the facilities. The initial implementation will not prevent OSU from storing other drawings and documents in a subsequent phase.
