McGraw-Hill Construction, Meridian Systems Partner to Deliver Document Management Tools12 Feb, 2009
Collaboration aims to provide cost savings and interoperability to AEC firms and building owners.
McGraw-Hill Construction announced an alliance with Meridian Systems that will provide more streamlined tools for managing digital program and project controls, project documents, and construction information, according to the companies.
McGraw-Hill Construction's Project Document Manager (PDM) is a document management system that pulls content from the McGraw-Hill Construction Network, powered by the Dodge database. Meridian provides program and project management (PPM) software, including Prolog and Proliance. As part of the alliance, the companies will integrate Meridian PPM software with the McGraw-Hill Construction Network and PDM.
McGraw-Hill and Meridian's integrated PDM and PPM systems reportedly equip users with a more efficient way to manage the entire workflow process, from design development to bidding, project management, project close-out, and operations- saving time and resources. PDM also integrates with local, on-demand reprographic services, so documents can be routed to nearby printers for printing and shipping.
