Guidelines for Effective Facilities Information Management

Academic campus facilities accumulate massive amounts of facility information that can be challenging to access, archive, and properly manage. According to APPA, costs have grown by 20% in the last ten years when it comes to building, operating, and maintaining facility space at higher education institutions.

As the volume of data increases, the task becomes difficult for campuses struggling with legacy facilities information to maintain without an effective, flexible, powerful software solution.

Accruent’s engineering document management tool, Meridian, provides a comprehensive solution for managing data at educational facilities. Whether used as an on-premise server solution or through a secure Microsoft Azure-based cloud solution, Meridian is a powerful platform that
