Rijswijk, The Netherlands (PRWEB) August 15, 2007
BlueCielo ECM Solutions (formerly Cyco Software), a leading global software company offering Engineering Content Management (ECM) solutions, announced today that it has released InnoCielo Publisher 2007 and InnoCielo Publisher Framework 2007 - the latest versions of the optional Publisher add-on for its award-winning ECM solution InnoCielo Meridian Enterprise - which automate the rendering and publishing of engineering content in various formats.
Engineering content is in continuous change. Drawings, data, technical asset information, related files and other documents are created, updated, reviewed, released, revised and archived. At certain points in their lifecycle engineering documents must be handed over to other departments within the organization, or stakeholders outside the organization. In many companies this is a cumbersome, manual or unstructured process.
In the publishing process engineering documents are converted into readable formats, replacing outdated copies and stored in systems where other people can find and access the information. InnoCielo Publisher 2007 and InnoCielo Publisher Framework 2007 make it possible to automate such rendering and publishing processes, triggered by predefined document lifecycle events or on an ad-hoc basis.
BlueCielo's Publisher module is used together with InnoCielo Meridian Enterprise by companies such as Areva T&D Systems, Huntsman, Johnson Controls, Pfizer and Siemens in energy/utilities, manufacturing, oil and gas, petrochemical, pharmaceutical and other vertical markets.
"InnoCielo Publisher is a useful extension to InnoCielo Meridian Enterprise which we currently use to manage about 280,000 technical documents. InnoCielo Publisher provides us with a standard approach to the high volume printing of our project documentation and integrates with our system to produce neutral PDFs for easy distribution," comments Alan Painter, business manager - secondary systems of AREVA T&D Systems, an industry leader in solutions for energy transmission and distribution. "With InnoCielo Meridian Enterprise at the front end, InnoCielo Publisher operates invisibly in the background and sends our publishing requirements to our servers in a wholly automated process, cutting out the need for manual, time-consuming effort."
"InnoCielo Publisher and InnoCielo Publisher Framework make it much easier for organizations to distribute information to departments outside of Engineering in neutral, accessible file formats. Approved documents are also available to collaboration partners at the right time through the right medium," adds Martijn Janmaat, BlueCielo president and CEO. "With the entire information exchange process being automated, companies will experience benefits such as shorter turnaround times, greater efficiency and better protection of their intellectual property where external parties are involved."
