Meridian Systems Releases Advanced Web Services Platform for Prolog Construction Project Management Software


New Prolog Connect improves project team collaboration and interoperability, allowing Prolog customers to get more value from their project management technology investment

FOLSOM, Calif. (December 16, 2008) - Meridian Systems, the Plan-Build-Operate technology solutions leader for project-based organizations, announced today the release of Prolog® Connect, a new Web Services platform extension for Prolog Manager, the market leading construction project management software. These two applications work together to improve ease of use, supply chain collaboration, and software integration flexibility.

"The strategy behind Prolog Connect is to allow construction firms and building owners to converge their Prolog project management system with Microsoft productivity applications," said Bruno Berti, senior director, product management at Meridian. "By using the latest in Internet technology, Prolog Connect allows end-users to work the way they want to using familiar desktop tools, while organizations capture critical project data in one project management system of record."

The Prolog Connect solution includes the Prolog Connect Server, a Web Services platform built on a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). This advanced platform creates integrations with other software systems over the Internet, regardless of location or device type. Unlike traditional Web-based project management technologies, Prolog Connect allows the exchange of Prolog data with other systems while maintaining data integrity, and adhering to business logic, security settings and the system nomenclature established by your organization.

Prolog Connect improves user productivity by enabling the creation of custom Microsoft Office Business Applications (OBAs). OBAs allow bi-directional data exchange between Microsoft Excel, Word, Outlook, and SharePoint and Prolog Manager. OBAs can be tailored to various project team roles or to automate specific work tasks. Additionally, OBAs offer offline capabilities, so project team members can collaborate even in a disconnected environment.

Prolog Connect features a Collaboration Pack consisting of several pre-configured OBAs to streamline workflows around Daily Work Journals, Punch Lists, RFIs, Submittals, Meeting Minutes and reports. For example, the Daily Report Log OBA provides a simple form through a user's Excel program for superintendents to record jobsite details while offline. Once connected, the log data is automatically updated within Prolog Manager. The Collaboration pack also includes an integration to Microsoft's Virtual Earth, so that project data can be displayed geographically on a map.

Detailed information on Prolog Connect and the Collaboration Pack is available for download at http://www.meridiansystems.com/products/prolog/Connect/index.asp. Meridian has also published a new white paper entitled, "The Business Value of a Web Services Platform to Your Prolog User Community," that describes how a Web Services platform can be more beneficial than Web-based applications to create a long running technology roadmap for Prolog customers.
