Merant® Meritage™ Delivers Comprehensive Document Management and Version Control for Microsoft Office 2003 Editions
Enables Development and Project Teams to Easily Manage Multiple Document Versions from within Microsoft Office Word 2003, Excel 2003 and PowerPoint 2003
Melbourne, 15 January 200....Merant, a leading provider of software and services that deliver flexible control of code, content and other business-critical assets, has announced Merant Meritage. Merant Meritage is an innovative new tool for development organisations to more effectively manage documents within Microsoft Office, and allows them to control costs, mitigate risks and protect these critical assets.”
Cross-functional application development teams and other groups can collaborate through every stage of the design, development and delivery cycle confident that all associated Microsoft documents are under the protection of Merant’s powerful configuration management technology.
Merant Meritage brings the myriad business benefits of comprehensive change management to the world of cross-functional project documentation. By enabling version control, parallel review, change rollback and other critical document management capabilities from directly within Microsoft Word 2003, Excel 2003 and PowerPoint 2003, Merant Meritage dramatically improves productivity, collaboration and communication across any project team.
“The collective intellectual property of cross-functional teams is often encapsulated in Microsoft Office documents, making them an incredibly important and valuable corporate asset,” notes David Balazsy, Managing Director of Merant in Australia. “With Merant Meritage, development teams can now more effectively manage collaboration and archiving across project documentation, which allows them to control costs, mitigate risks and protect these critical assets.”
Merant Meritage simplifies collaboration by allowing teams to easily maintain and manage multiple versions of Word 2003, Excel 2003 and PowerPoint 2003 documents. This eliminates the traditional problems in coordinating, controlling and managing business cases, opportunity assessments, product presentations, cost plans and resource allocation spreadsheets, product requirement documents, delivery plans, feature set specifications, QA documents and a host of other materials associated with product delivery. Changes and comments in these documents can be easily tracked and incorporated, even during parallel review cycles.
Team members can also choose to be proactively notified of new versions via a subscription service. Document versions are stored in a central repository, improving both asset protection and document visibility. Historical changes are tracked to streamline document editing and improve audit compliance, and documentation can even be rolled back to an earlier version with a simple command.
Merant Meritage supports Microsoft Office 2000, Office XP and Office 2003 Editions. It can be used as a stand-alone application or integrated with Merant Version Manager, a core component of the Merant Professional suite for comprehensive software configuration management.
