Learn how you can save hundreds of millions of dollars a year by using digital technologies to make your operations more efficient.  The energy sector has been undergoing a period of rapid change over the last few years. Digital technology has been one of the most significant advancements in this industry, and it has transformed the way that energy is produced, distributed, and consumed.


The energy industry is quickly adopting smart technologies to increase operational efficiency & reduce costs. This allows them to make timely decisions faster while improving their ability to collaborate across the organization.


Advanced analytics are essential for companies to optimize processes and identify bottlenecks. Leveraging the power of data, companies can improve their performance and maximize their investments. Advance your company’s objectives by leveraging data analysis through advanced analytics.

Let’s face it: The way we work is changing, and work is no longer just a place.  You use technology to manage your time, communicate with coworkers, and get things done wherever you are. Your job demands that same level of flexibility.  So today, extending the reach of your digital solutions to wherever your teams need to work makes perfect business sense.


Our advanced, user-friendly cloud-based solution allows energy companies to significantly reduce the time and cost of pipeline construction and regulatory reporting, as well as eliminate human error.

For pipeline construction companies and regulatory reporting professionals, it’s time to join the 21st century. These smart forms will automate and streamline the collection of data, reduce errors, and companies can concentrate on their core competencies without being bogged down with tedious and repetitive processing.


Smart forms are digital forms that can automatically capture, validate and store data in real-time.  These forms can be accessed through mobile devices, tablets, laptops and desktops, making them accessible and convenient for field workers, engineers and managers.  Some of the benefits of using smart forms for pipeline construction and regulatory reporting include:

    1. Accurate and timely data capture – Smart forms can capture data accurately and in real-time, ensuring that data entry errors are minimized, and the data is up to date.  This eliminates the need for manual data validation and correction, leading to faster processing of reports and reducing the risk of errors.

    1. Customization and Flexibility – smart forms can be customized to fit specific requirements and workflows, enabling the capture of relevant data, and the automation of specific tasks.  This customization and flexibility can optimize the reporting process, enabling efficient use of resources and faster decision-making.

    1. Data Quality Control – a Smart form integrated with workflows allow users up-down the corporate ladder to track, audit, edit, reject, then ultimate approve a field report before it is entered into the system.  The approval process helps reduce “Bad Data” or sometimes referred to as “Garbage” data which can corrupt a management records system solution.

    1. Integration “Other” systems – Smart forms can be integrated with other systems, such as GIS and ERP systems, enhancing the quality and speed of data integration and analysis.  The integration can enable automatic data exchange and reduce duplication of effort. 

    1. Improved Compliance and Safety – Smart forms can help organizations to comply with the relevant regulations and safety standards by automating the capture and reporting of critical data.  This can enhance transparency, accountability, and timely reporting of incidents, leading to improved safety and regulatory compliance.

Example 1: 

For a pipeline construction project in the United States, a leading oil and gas midstream company adopted Smart Forms with workflow management to automate and streamline reporting related to the construction of a 30 mile 20” diameter pipeline.

The smart forms enabled the capture of real-time data in the field, which was automatically synchronized and validated by the head office, ensuring timely processing and reporting of critical information. Data was integrated with GIS solutions enabling project managers to surface reports onto a map for the purpose of visualization and communication. The projects construction management budget was originally 4M dollars however using smart forms, the operator managed construction with ½ the inspectors ultimately saving the owner 2M dollars. Equally important, this owner was prepared for PHMSA audits having had quality-controlled documentation that was up-to-date accurate.

Example 2: 

The oil and gas midstream operator used an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system to manage their meter proving program. The system issues work orders which the field operators then perform inspections. These reports have historically been paper requiring the corporate office to correct and enter data from the forms into various systems. In an attempt to reduce costs and improve data quality (improving regulatory compliance), the owner used Smart Forms with Workflow to assign meter proving to individuals in the field who would, using their tablet, visit the equipment to perform inspections (and take pictures). The operator submits the form from the tablet, which is then audited by corporate and when accepted, its data and calculations are immediately fed into the ERP system.

The oil-gas midstream operator believes this one automated form is saving the company in excess of 1.2MM dollars per year while improving the quality of data exponentially. Not to mention field operators are being held accountable and in effect managing their time more appropriately.

In both examples, especially when integrated with ERP or GIS solutions, enabled the company to enhance the quality of data and improves management reaction and efficient decision-making speed, ultimately reducing project costs while providing enhanced regulatory compliance and safety.

As a client stated “digital transformation and innovation takes “out of the box thinking” however the  savings from innovating is likely greater than the return on capital deployed anywhere else within the company”.
