Welcome to our September Newsletter
This edition has our latest updates, including customer insights and updates. We also have the latest information on Meridian, Lunr, and Viewport, and we continue to introduce our team members.
Onset Updates
Welcome to our September update. Meridian upgrades are being finalised with Curtin University and BHP. Upgrades are in progress with NRG and Evoenergy, and in the planning stage with Icon Water, Capral, and Qenos.

With Meridian 2021 well established, and the R2 update coming online, it's a good time to start planning and scheduling this year's upgrade, so please contact us if you'd like to start the discussion.
New Industry Pages
To provide information that better targets the various industries we work with, we're excited to introduce new Industry focus areas to our website.

We kicked off with Utilities, and can now announce resources for the Life Sciences and Higher Education sectors.

Exploring these pages, you'll find links to eBooks, webinars, and case studies to provide you with a head start to learn more about the challenges facing your organisation and discover how these can be addressed.

We'll be adding to these with dedicated pages for Manufacturing, Infrastructure (road, rail, ports, and airports), and Metals & Mining.

If you're after more general information on how engineering content management differs from standard enterprise document management, check out our page for the other engineering disciplines.
Lunr Blog Updates
The Lunr blog shares a number of recent publications, including a summary of how our solutions can be tailored for the higher education sector.


There's also a short introductory video that demonstrates some of the main features of Lunr:

  • Autodesk 2022 product suite support.
