MM SpA Selects Accruent for Engineering Information Management

January 8, 2019

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 8, 2019--Accruent, the world’s leading provider of physical resource management solutions, announced today that MM SpA, one of Italy’s largest and most diversified engineering companies, has selected Accruent’s Meridian to manage mission-critical engineering documents in a secure, centralized data repository.

Founded in 1955 to design and build the Milan underground, MM SpA is an engineering company that also manages Milan’s integrated water services and public housing operations.

“Our engineering projects need much more than a document management system,” said Massyle Djama, IT Applications Specialist, MM SpA. “It was critical for us to work with a solution to manage projects efficiently and consistently, with standard naming conventions and control over which users have access to each project’s files.”

With multiple concurrent infrastructure projects, MM SpA’s engineers need to ensure that all data relationships are preserved across documentation of multiple complex systems, before, during and after data handover. When different departments and stakeholders create, modify, approve, and use documents in separate software or data systems, the risk of information loss or duplication increases.

Accruent’s engineering information management software supports concurrent engineering and improves the engineering data handover process through:

Standard, repeatable workflows to capture comments and approvals electronically, provide notifications, and build audit trails to support regulatory requirements. Advanced search capabilities to find all relevant documentation quickly. On-premise or cloud options for users to work from a desktop or mobile device within the organization or with external contractors and stakeholders.

“MM SpA wanted a single platform for managing data across all engineering projects and we’re pleased that Accruent rose to the top of their list,” said John Borgerding, CEO, Accruent. “With our Meridian software, MM SpA can apply business rules that ensure they do not waste time and money. Our solution will provide a structured workflow process that can be orchestrated to ensure that all changes are executed and approved in a timely manner.”

By using the concurrent engineering functionality available in Accruent’s engineering information management, MM SpA can track documents even when projects run in parallel and gain real-time visibility to monitor revisions from different projects and ongoing maintenance. Project members associated with the same documents are notified automatically when documents are updated in a related project, avoiding unnecessary delays and shortening project turnaround times.
