Asset Reliability

Asset reliability improved as field based service providers had access to up-to-date and easy to follow standard operation procedures made available across all digital devices (iPhone, iPad, Android, Desktop). The service providers were able to perform the tasks safely and correctly, ensuring all steps were completed. Rich data such as photos with annotations, GPS longitude/latitude location and quality notes (spell checked & legible) improved the operator’s asset team’s decision-making abilities due to having the data provided in the format they needed and in a timely manner.

Contractor Management & Collaboration

Ensuring that procedures were followed safely, correctly and that clean data was collected reduced friction between all parties. The operator asset team was provided with asset related data as well as real-time activity updates to provide transparency and understanding to where their investment was being spent and what outcomes were being achieved by their service providers. Knowing exactly how much activity was involved to produce a desired outcome provided data for all parties to review and discuss at their contractor review meetings. Ultimately sharing a common tool designed for both parties set appropriate expectations and improved collaboration to produce a better overall outcome.
