Validation-as-a-Services Provided by Accruent Managed Services

Meridian’s validation-as-a-service facilitates compliance with Title 21 CFR Part 11/cGMP/GMP Annex 11, which means more resources, fewer security risks and fewer interruptions for your organization. This is accomplished through:

  • Pre-validated pre-configured Meridian tenancy
  • Customer-specific validation documentation

  • Data migration (in both test and production tenancies)

  • User acceptance testing support and reporting

  • Quarterly updates with risk assessment and validation testing provided

Controlled Automated Workflows - Main

Controlled Automated Workflows

When a user wants to make a change to a controlled document or submit it for review in Meridian Cloud, they initiate a controlled workflow to make that change. This forces documents to move through a defined workflow, which can prevent duplicate documentation and help ensure that all important steps are followed.

Electronic Print Stamp - Main

Electronic Print Stamp

Every time you view, modify or print a GMP document in Meridian Cloud for Life Sciences, a print stamp and watermark will be automatically generated by the system on each PDF rendering of the document to provide key timing information and status updates. This can help maintain consistency of work across time zones and help employees ensure they are working with the latest and most recently approved version of the document.

Electronic Signatures - Main

Electronic Signatures

With Meridian Cloud for Life Sciences, electronic signatures are automatically required when a GMP document is put into a workflow. These signatures will ensure that the correct people have reviewed and approved the document, and that the document is fit for use.

Watermark - Main


When a PDF rendition is updated or created as part of a workflow, users will see a watermark across the document showing its status. When the PDF is printed, they will also see a print stamp denoting the date and time of print.

Document Compare - Main

Document Compare

For both Office and CAD documents, a handy compare tool easily highlights what changes have been made between versions so users can easily identify latest releases, historical revisions and project copies. In addition, when a new revision is created, the prior revision is automatically watermarked as “superseded” to ensure that consumers clearly understand that status of the version.

Automated Audit Tracking - Main

Automated Audit Tracking

Meridian Cloud tracks changes at the document and system levels, thereby ensuring that all changes are recorded in the appropriate audit trail and that they are easily accessible during internal and regulatory audits.

Mobile Capabilities - Main

Mobile Capabilities

Meridian’s Mobile Client allows users in all roles to access content more efficiently and to provide critical feedback to content authors.
