BlueCielo ECM Solutions (formerly Cyco Software), a leading global software company offering Engineering Content Management (ECM) solutions, announced today that its flagship ECM solution InnoCielo Meridian Enterprise has been nominated by a select panel of judges as a Finalist in the Productivity Software category of Plant Engineering's Product of the Year 2007 competition.
Organized by prominent industry publication Plant Engineering Magazine, the Product of the Year competition honors products that are especially useful for the plant engineer and reflect today's sophisticated, high-tech world or represent pure simplicity of design.
"Product of the Year celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2007. Each year, hundreds of new products apply for consideration," says Bob Vavra, editor of Plant Engineering. "A jury of plant engineers and plant managers reviews all entries and carefully selects the ones they believe demonstrate the greatest innovation in 18 product areas. Congratulations to InnoCielo Meridian Enterprise for achieving Finalist status in its category."
BlueCielo's flagship solution InnoCielo Meridian Enterprise is a robust, highly scalable engineering content management solution that enables different internal departments (such as engineering, design, construction, building and maintenance) and external parties to collaborate smoothly on engineering projects - leading to improved efficiency and reduced costs.
The latest 2007a version of the popular ECM solution boasts cutting-edge features such as Advanced Document Workflow, the Open BriefCase option, enhanced performance levels, full-text search using Microsoft Index Server and full support for the latest CAD software versions.
The winners of the much sought-after Product of the Year Award will be determined through voting by readers. The finalists will appear in Plant Engineering's November 2007 issue for readers to review, and eligible voters on the publication's circulation list will be sent an email ballot to vote for their choice of outstanding new products in 2007. Readers who buy and specify products for the plant floor will be eligible to vote.
The Gold, Silver and Bronze awards in each of the categories, as well as the Grand Award given to the product receiving the highest number of votes, will be announced at a gala dinner on March 31, 2008 at Plant Engineering's Manufacturing Summit in Chicago.
