Why Our Approach to Software Implementation?

The EnerSys Philosophy

Your Trusted Partner to Achieve Pipeline Operations Excellence

EnerSys is committed to incremental improvement with each step of using POEMS software in alignment with the Pipeline Safety Management Systems (Pipeline SMS) model.

Our objective is to support pipeline operators on the journey to achieve the industry-wide goal of zero incidents. We accomplish this objective through a systematic approach to capturing the pipeline operating experience, understanding each operator’s unique challenges for operating a safe and reliable pipeline, and assisting pipeline operators to continually improve operations.

We follow through with a compelling combination of technology, consultation, facilitation, and education to support incremental improvement. Throughout the POEMS software implementation and operational process, we provide educational orientations, workshops, and training sessions to improve the user experience and ensure understanding.

To bring this information to life, we focus on the “why” that drives the need for safe pipeline operations. The “why” is centered on culture. We support pipeline operators as they build a safety culture that fits their unique operation in order to achieve continuous improvement.

The mechanism to support the culture and achieve alignment with Pipeline SMS is our POEMS software. When operators and users understand the value of implementing incremental changes, your team will have the confidence to execute their role in a high-performing pipeline operation that is 100 percent committed to pipeline safety.

Compliance Capabilities
EnerSys specializes in the implementation of high-performance, PHMSA CRM-compliant control rooms for pipeline operators by leveraging in-depth knowledge of pipeline operations, control room procedures, alarm rationalization processes, SCADA practices, and the latest PHSMA 49 CFR regulations.
Consulting Capabilities
EnerSys collaborates with industry leaders to understand best practices and determine how pipeline operators can effectively implement these practices to fit their unique needs. We share this knowledge with pipeline operators to establish procedures and utilize tools to reliably and safely operate a pipeline control room.
