Houston, Texas – March 23, 2011 – The University of Alberta (UofA) has selected BlueCielo Meridian Enterprise to replace an existing product for storing drawing archives.
UofA is replacing an existing document management solution. The former system primarily stores project archive drawings and contains approximately 41,000 documents. The initial implementation will primarily focus on configuring Meridian as a replacement for this system and performing a migration of the project drawing archives from the former system to Meridian. The initial implementation will also include support for many additional Document Types. Users of Meridian will be able to perform each task depending on security groups and the application of those security groups to roles and folders within Meridian. In the initial phase, UofA wishes to maintain a versioning history of all changes that occur to files
