Meridio records management solution works with ERP and CAD systems.

Autonomy Corp., a provider of infrastructure software for the enterprise, announced recently that Extract Technology, a supplier of containment systems for the pharmaceutical, chemical and biotech markets, has implemented its Meridio records management solution to improve compliance with current regulations, while augmenting the company's information management processes.

The new Extract Technology system can now be integrated with third-party collaborative software and business applications, such as ERP and CAD systems.

Extract Technology, which provides services for AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline and Pfizer, is required to store and manage approximately 200 to 2,000 records for each project that they handle, many of which need to have CE marking, showing that they conform to mandatory European directives. Autonomy Meridio's records management solution enables Extract Technology to store a wide variety of documents that range from contract details to design, testing and maintenance records, and it covers a wide range of file formats from emails and Microsoft Excel spreadsheets to project plans, CAD drawings and other graphical presentations.

"Our selection criteria included the ease of use, support of data formats and file types, secure remote access from offices worldwide, as well as the ability to migrate all existing documentation from our previous system to the new one," said Martin Price, project manager at Extract Technology.
