Data Management Platform
FlowWorks has added integration of GIS information to its data management platform that monitors rainfall, climate, groundwater, pump stations and more. Users view parameters stored in their GIS systems alongside data from monitoring sites and SCADA systems. As a result, engineers and managers access all monitoring data without having to change screens or terminals, or dig around in old files on a secure Web platform. It accepts data from all manufacturers' instruments, rain gauges, climate stations and data systems. It also collects data directly from SCADA systems, USGS and NOAA environmental stations and GIS platforms. 206/859-6999; www.flowworks.com.
Business Management Program
FoundOPS tracks all client information and service history, and creates service schedules. Users dispatch their team by dragging and dropping jobs, or let the program's routing algorithm figure out the most efficient routes. The program can wirelessly send job information and updates to field technicians' smartphones or tablets. Technicians can also get turn-by-turn directions to the site, access client information, and record a service report. Meanwhile, business owners can track their progress and GPS location. Once the job is completed, an invoice is automatically created in the company's QuickBooks account, with all billing information already filled in. The system is securely hosted in Microsoft's Cloud, meaning that all users need is a Mac or PC with Internet access. 765/688-0006; www.foundops.com.
Wireless Input/Output (I/O) expansion systems from FreeWave Technologies allow users to monitor and control plunger lift. Wireless I/O radios transmit varying data to producers' offices, allowing them to monitor casing, tubing, intermediate and surface pressure. Depending on how many points are needed, it may be beneficial to look for a provider who offers multiple I/O points, also known as I/O expansion. This ability helps increase the overall health of oil production systems by offering producers real-time data analyzed for multiple pressure readings. 281/799-8643; www.freewave.com.
