McLaren Software engineering document control service

Hosted and outsourced ‘cradle-to-grave’ offering supports Albertan oil sans project.

A hosted, cradle-to-grave service for engineering document management on capital projects, McLaren’s document control service (DCS) addresses the requirements of major engineering projects. Anchor tenant is a major Alberta oil sands operator. DCS includes an outsourced document control service provided by ‘experienced document controllers.’ Project documentation is captured to a privately-hosted, cloud-based implementation of McLaren Enterprise.

CEO Paul Muir said, ‘Clients tell us that controller turnover can be as high as 50% per year, adding cost and risk to a project. These costs trend higher where document control skills are at a premium—especially in remote locations.’

DCS is based-on McLaren Enterprise ‘OnAir’ and is hosted in one of McLarens’ tier 3 data centers. The pre-configured solution embeds best practice document control processes gained from two decades of industry specialization. Deliverables management and transmittals management are included in addition to project document control workflows, mark-up and reporting. Controllers recruited and trained by McLaren supplement the customers’ own document control team. The service is available now in North America and Australia with further geographic coverage and a separate ‘asset operations’ service planned for later in 2013. More from McLaren.
