Improving Field Operations Efficiency and Reducing Costs with Muddy Boots

The Muddy Boots Maintenance & WO Module for Field Operations

Lets face it: in most companies, field employees wear multiple hats. In a single day, the same field operations employee may witness meter testing and truck loading, conduct a site safety inspection, report gas loss from launching a pig, and make minor repairs. A measurement technician may perform a meter calibration, test PSVs, and troubleshoot a SCADA alarm issue, all on the same site.

A few questions come to mind:

  • How are these employees documenting and reporting their work? 
  • Are they still recording some of their work on paper, then entering the info back when they get back to the office?
  • How many separate software tools are they using in a day?
  • How many logins and passwords do they need to track?
  • Is the data entry efficient and intuitive, or do your folks complain that the reports take longer than the actual work?
  • Are the software tools provided to them designed for the oil & gas industry, or have you given them software designed for building maintenance or the assembly plant floor?
  • As a supervisor or manager, can you look at one dashboard to determine the real-time status of scheduled tasks and Work Orders, or do you need to review multiple reports and\or log into several different systems, just to get data that is several days old?
  • How about service companies and contractors?  Do you manage them in the same system as you manage your own employees, or do you have to dig through emails to find out what your services companies did last week and what they are behind on?

Our tools provide a system to capture “what was done.” This is accomplished through scheduling meter calibrations, creating and recording measurement reports, communicating measurement changes, and documenting regulatory compliance — all in one software platform.

Plus, the software tools can be utilized in the palm of your hand. Techs can perform tasks on their mobile device and measurement supervisors can run the entire measurement operations from a smartphone. It’s a win-win for both parties.
