The utilities industry is facing the operational impact of unplanned downtime. In fact, according to Aberdeen, unplanned downtime – across all businesses – can cost companies as much as €224,846 per hour.

With 24/7 access to accurate engineering drawings and documentation, utilities can reduce the average search time for relevant engineering documentation from hours to minutes to stay compliant with different regulatory bodies.

Accruent’s engineering information management solution establishes a centralised, secure, scalable, highly accessible repository for all engineering documentation.

Our solution allows utilities to track all their assets and ensure the revision history associated with these assets is accurate and complete. Accruent helps utilities such as RWE, Chugach Electric, Covra, and Dunea, and many more run their hydroelectric, coal, gas, power, water, and wastewater plants more efficiently, safely, sustainably, and profitably.

Drawings version control

Eliminate fears of users working on outdated, incorrect engineering drawings. Utilities can compare and track the revision history of a document or drawing easily.

Robust document search capabilities

Manage the increasing amount of digital documents with ease by finding relevant documents quickly. This leads to utilities seeing substantial time savings, increased employee production, and faster project completion timelines.

Manage all-mission-critical document types

Accruent offers a full CAD-platform independent solution for engineering drawings management where utilities can store, manage, render, and visualize both 2D and 3D content easily from major CAD systems. Organizations keep their master data up-to-date while coordinating their change processes in isolated work areas with workflows, ensuring data validation, and providing a full audit trail for regulatory compliance. Users can also manage Microsoft Office documents, PDFs, scanned images, and hybrid files, allowing our solution to be the ultimate repository for consolidating all legacy and project-related engineering information.

Concurrent engineering

Track all documents to ensure projects run in parallel, without error, which provides utilities real-time visibility to monitor revision from different projects and ongoing maintenance. Project members associated with the same documents and drawings are notified automatically when a parallel project releases updated documents, avoiding unnecessary delays and shortening project turnaround times.

Document and drawings management

Provides version control, revision management, and document workflows in a safe & secure environment so users can be confident that they are working on the most up-to-date documentation.

Standard integrations

Enhances efficiency by providing integrations to EAM, ERP, ECM, Microsoft Office, and CAD authoring applications, making it the ultimate repository for consolidating documentation.

Asset tag / document relationships

Provides robust search capabilities and ties documents to asset tags so users can locate documents hassle-free.

Engineering workflows

Preserves established control of engineering data changes, safeguarding accurate review and approval steps for effective change control and ensuring safety and compliance.

Engineering transmittals

Seamlessly create, handle, and send transmittals and easily route submitted documents through the appropriate review and approval process for maximum security and visibility.

Certified secure cloud services

With the help of Microsoft Azure®, Accruent provides the most comprehensive set of certifications of any cloud service provider.

Meridian helps utilities make the most of valuable engineering data by locating these documents in a secure centralized repository. Our engineering information management solution provides well-established and proven managed change processes that help ensure your data is accurate and up-to-date. Every change is versioned and audited, offering confidence and control to demonstrate compliance with global and local utilities-specific regulations.

The mission of many companies in the utilities industry is to provide a safe, reliable, environmentally friendly utility service to its customers at the most economical price. This mission can prove to be extremely challenging with the rapid influx of engineering data coming their way at any one time. This challenge becomes even more difficult when utilities are undergoing multiple projects at one time and must make real-time critical decisions that can affect their margins drastically. Our solution can help your utility to achieve its mission.
