Two North East tech firms are partnering on a major project to help the UK’s largest nuclear site transform its document management systems.

Opentree has beat globally recognised companies to provide Sellafield in Cumbria with their unique software program to transform its document management systems, which will be powered by Atlas Cloud.

Teesside based Opentree has been chosen to deliver their electronic document management software, Cabinet. The software will allow Sellafield to manage its office’s documents, CAD models and drawings from creation to maintenance of the facility, following BIM level 2.

In partnership with Atlas Cloud, the Cabinet software will be deployed by Citrix, allowing users access to the application anywhere. Atlas Cloud specialises in delivering quality, complex applications in Architecture, Engineering and Construction.

Together, Atlas Cloud and Opentree are able to offer automation of document management processes to the highest industry accreditations for the secure delivery of construction projects.

Managing director of Opentree, Andrew Frank, said: “The team at Opentree comprises highly-skilled engineers that have carefully developed state-of-the-art software to provide simple solutions for BIM teams and document controllers. Compared to some global competitors, we’re agile and able to be on-hand whenever we’re required.

“This is an incredibly interesting project for our team and one we hope to build on. The current project will include migrating data from older systems into Cabinet and linking to others. We have developed Cabinet so that it is simple to use, highly configurable to meet customers’ requirements and able to automate business processes while providing accurate records with a full audit and revision history for lifetime records.”

Pete Watson, Chief Executive Officer at Atlas Cloud, said: “Using Atlas Cloud is a huge benefit for a site as vast as Sellafield and where data security is of utmost importance as we are one of the most highly accredited in our field to deliver this. Opentree is the ideal partner for our technology as their Cabinet software is secure, reliable and straightforward to use and can integrate with other CAD packages seamlessly in the cloud.”
