Welcome to our August Newsletter
This edition has our latest updates, including customer insights and the latest webinars. We also have the latest information on Meridian, upgrades and Lunr.
Onset Updates
As the Melbourne team members are locked away for another 6 weeks of restrictions, we're very envious of our colleagues in Brisbane, Newcastle and Perth. Less time in cafes gives us more time for newsletters and, fortunately, remote access enables ongoing projects including upgrades and training.

Meridian upgrades are ongoing with Tronox, Curtin University and PTV and we have some important updates below on the Meridian 2020 R2 release.

We're also hosting selected Accruent webinar recordings for the local audience and the registration links are provided below, just in case you've missed the posts on LinkedIn.

  • Meridian - BIM for Facility Management
  • Meridian - Concurrent Engineering
  • Meridian Portal - Collaborative Review Cycles (coming soon)

Lunr Updates
The Lunr portal allows you to upload, revise, and collaborate on all your engineering content in one place.

The Lunr team has been hard at work over the last six months developing a suite of new functionality. We’re particularly excited about two new feature sets: Enhanced project collaboration and XRAY.

Check out our blog page for the latest updates on Lunr.

We also have one opportunity remaining to qualify for a discounted Lunr subscription, based on becoming a Case Study. Please email me to find out more.
