A Complete, Cloud Based, Hosted Document Control Solution Including Document Controllers

Houston Texas 30 May 2013 -McLaren Software, leaders in engineering document control, project collaboration and computer aided facilities management solutions announce the availability of McLaren Document Control Services for Capital Projects.

McLaren Document Control Services is a comprehensive outsourced capital project document control service comprised of a privately hosted cloud-based implementation of McLaren Enterprise plus experienced document controllers for a flexible, all-inclusive fee structure. The service is designed to help owner operators or EPCs bring a document control system online quickly to support a capital project without having to procure, configure or maintain hardware or software or hire, train and retain document controllers.

"McLaren Document Control Services has been launched in response to a growing customer demand to go beyond the provision of a project document control system and we are delighted to have secured a major Alberta Oil Sands Operator as our first customer," said Paul Muir CEO of McLaren Software.  "Feedback from our customers indicates the turnover of document controllers employed on capital projects can reach as high as 50 percent per year, adding both cost and risk.  The cost of employing and turnover of document controllers trend higher where document control skills are at a premium and often located in remote locations. McLaren Document Control Services goes that extra mile to provide a complete solution"

McLaren Document Control Services based on the McLaren Enterprise 'OnAir', privately hosted in one of McLarens' three Tier 3 Datacenters, is pre-configured for major capital projects including best practice document control processes gained from nearly two decades of industry specialization.  Deliverables Management and Transmittals Management are included in addition to project document control workflows, mark-up and reporting.

McLaren recruits, trains and employs document controllers to a high standard to supplement the customers' own document control team offering the entire service for an agreed fee structure and service level agreement.  The software is privately hosted for each customer with McLaren employed document controllers located either at McLaren or customer premises.  The number of document controllers included in the service by McLaren can be increased or reduced as a capital project progresses.  Document controllers working for McLaren have the advantage of both regular training and a consistent working environment, irrespective of the project to which they are assigned. 

"McLaren Enterprise is currently supporting some of the largest capital projects in the world and the introduction of McLaren Document Control Services adds a comprehensive, low risk, high value and cost effective fee based outsourced service and the first of its kind in the market," commented Muir.

McLaren's outsourced Document Control Services offering is available immediately in North America and Australia with further geographic coverage and an asset operations service planned for later in 2013.
