Mobile Solutions for Oil & Gas
The oil and gas industry is a longtime user of mobile technology, but much of that use is with the “ruggedized” handheld computers required for extreme environmental conditions. With iFactr, you can not only support the traditional rugged devices running Windows CE or Windows Mobile, but also modern devices like iOS and Android when appropriate.
With iFactr for Oil & Gas, inspection and maintenance processes can be automated with applications that streamline survey and data collection. Integration with cameras, GPS devices, and barcode scanners can also provide ways to enhance these workflows and processes.
With extensive embedded systems capturing enormous amounts of data and monitoring well- or drilling-equipment status, the ability to access charts, graphics, and alerts right from the smartphone or tablet can be a powerful way to make use of that mountain of captured data. Executive management can also use the iPad to view the real-time status of various key performance metrics around safety and production. In an industry beset with safety concerns, especially since the Deepwater Horizon disaster, quick access to safety metrics is increasingly important.
With iFactr, your mobile applications can be delivered as native apps running on the device for iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone, Windows Mobile, Windows XP/Vista/7 Classic-style, Windows 8 Metro-style, or running on the server as HTML5 delivered in a browser or part of a hybrid PhoneGap application.
