Having recently won a large global contract for providing inspections software technology to an oil & gas inspections contractor, TAAP has highlighted the potential impact for improving productivity and efficiency that mobile systems can have on the industry as a whole.
With devices now available which meet standards set out in the ATEX directive - which protects employees from the risk of explosion - for example the i.roc Ci70-Ex from Ecom, it is safer for operators to use mobile devices in areas which are generally unsafe because of the risk of generating electrical sparks which could trigger an explosion.
Because of the strict guidelines on health and safety to which the oil and gas industry must adhere, TAAP provides systems on mobile devices which can significantly improve processes such as inspections, health & safety checks, and so on, by replicating each customer’s forms electronically, thus making the data immediately accessible via a secure web portal or existing back-office software. This replaces traditional paper reporting and inspections, which can be inefficient, inaccurate, and insecure.
For this particular oil and gas inspection system, TAAP is providing the customer with a tablet-based inspection software application which will ensure operators can fill in the inspection form relevant to their task, and upload the saved data to a secure web portal. Once the information from the inspection is complete, it is available for management reporting and sending to the customer as an electronic document.
Steve Higgon, Product Architect, commented “TAAP recognises the huge difference that mobile systems can make to the oil and gas industry so have developed software applications that work well in this sector, on appropriate ruggedized devices. By providing customised software to all our clients, we ensure that processes which may currently exist in other formats can be replicated electronically and often improved upon to create competitive business efficiencies such as cost savings, increased productivity and improved compliance.”
TAAP is a leading provider of software solutions which allow organisations to mobilise their operations using hand held computers. Its award-winning agile application platform allows new systems to be delivered “OnTAAP”, that is, fast, flexibly and at low cost.
