Enterprise resource planning and maintenance management platforms are powerful business tools that can increase uptime and productivity, lower maintenance costs, and extend the life of critical assets. Yet, many of these systems have limited engineering document management capabilities.
This can negatively impact both your efficiency and your overall ROI, since struggling to find up-to-date engineering documents related to assets can lead to increased downtime, maintenance delays and safety incidents.
The Meridian Cloud API allows you to integrate your enterprise resource planning (ERP), enterprise asset management (EAM), or computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) platforms with Accruent’s industry-leading Meridian document management solution.
This enables you to: better manage your assets, gain freedom from your software, break down information silos, and ensure that all of your important documentation and data is easily accessible by the right people – all while maximizing staff productivity and supporting personnel safety.

What Does Our Cloud API Do?
The Meridian Cloud API enables integrations between your existing ERP, CMMS or FM solutions and Accruent’s engineering document management solution, Meridian. And these integrations can yield powerful results.
Meridian establishes a centralized, secure, scalable and highly accessible repository for all engineering assets and related documentation. This solution not only establishes a single source of truth for your engineering assets, but also enables compliance with global, local and industry-specific regulations.
With the Meridian Cloud API, you will be able to:
- Synchronize your assets across platforms, creating one single source of truth for asset data
- Create multiple relationships between assets and documents housed in Meridian
- View a list of all associated documents related to an asset at the click of a button
- Break down information silos
- Reduce rekeying of information in multiple systems

How can our Cloud API help your organization?
As organizations aim to optimize workflows, increase productivity and reduce costs, having disparate, out-of-date, or incomplete systems can be a detriment to that goal. Further, not having up-to-date and accurate information could lead to unsafe working conditions and accidents.
Prevent Duplicate Data Entry
Rekeying the same information in multiple systems is time-consuming and inefficient. Additionally, it increases the opportunity for human error, resulting in systems that are incorrect or out of sync. This challenge can lead to less informed decisions – and in manufacturing, that could spell disaster.
Synchronize Separate Systems
It is critical for manufacturing companies to tie their assets to engineering documentation. This will reduce costly downtime and lower the total cost of maintenance. Without consolidated systems, however, the ability to do this is severely hampered.
Specifically, whenever maintenance and engineering teams work out of disparate systems, it can both lead to work order delays and negatively impact the safety of personnel in the field.
You can avoid all of these challenges through a Meridian Cloud API integration, ensuring your asset data and information documents are up-to-date at all times.
Unify Your Engineering and Maintenance Departments with Meridian Cloud API
By combining your ERP, CMMS or EAM platform with our document management solution, Meridian, you can maximize the combined strength of integrated systems to ensure faster, more accurate access to your dynamic asset information.
This integration breaks down information silos between different departments and helps equip maintenance teams with fast access to ever-changing engineering information whenever and wherever they need it.
Additionally, by providing a single source of truth for all engineering documentation, teams can eliminate duplicate data entry into different systems.
This can save time searching for documents, which can translate to broader cost savings as teams are more productive and able to complete projects more quickly and efficiently.
