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
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.
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.
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.
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 In addition, when a new revision is created, the prior revision is automatically watermarked as “superseded” to ensure that consumers clearly understand that status of the version.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
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.
Meridian’s Mobile Client allows users in all roles to access content more efficiently and to provide critical feedback to content authors.
Facilitate digital transformation and maximize data-driven insight by connecting to mission critical systems like your CMMS, thereby allowing users access to critical as-built information starting from their user interface of choice.
