Helping people and processes drive top-notch performance 

Maintaining and management of data is always a dominant method that helps organizations facilitate everyday operations. Many companies in the oil and gas sector, especially operations that occur in midstream need intense data monitoring capabilities over their people and processes.

A different range of services - identifying the location of resources, drilling, storing, managing supply and logistics, and transportation integrates individual databases to keep track of their performances. Bringing them together that promises to provide a unified view streamlines data management processes.

Zapoj CEM gives this extended flexibility by merging each disparate tool along the pipeline operations, supply chain management, and other core business processes.

The ability to implement Zapoj with disparate tools means getting access to location intelligence, improving geographic information mapping, predictive analytics, and risk management capabilities. Stakeholders and their leaders enable everyone to leverage and utilize this data to the full extent of their capabilities. Hence, making crisis communication, collaboration, and risk mitigation a flexible feat, Zapoj guides the key emergency response team to reduce the Mean Time to Repair and restores the operations with minimal downtime.

Digital workflows for system and equipment management

Digital workflows for system and equipment management

What is happening across drilling rigs, wells, pipelines, transportation, pump stations, and field offices needs monitoring and rapid response to react instantly. Through automated digital workflows, leaders can build efficient responses to help emergency teams harness contextual awareness to react and mitigate without creating information fatigue, rumor, and panic.

It is not unusual that offshore drilling equipment, gas compressors, and vital on-field assets sustain unpredictable critical equipment failure. With admin-level access, leaders can allow their security officers or facility managers to take control of Zapoj digital workflows. Based on the historical reporting and analytics, they can build suitable message templates specific to the critical equipment failure and the potential gaps in managing the incidents.

As digital workflows populate in times of malfunctions or downtime, it improves response and coordination between emergency teams. By using location technology, they can identify the right machine in real-time and address the issue rapidly or initiate the corrective procedure to restore the operations.

In minimizing the IT system downtime, automated digital workflows also provide scalable resolutions that reduce excessive repair costs and lost productivity. The occurrence of IT system failure impacts starting from the employee productivity to the execution of specific processes. With automated digital workflow notifying IT system failure, the IT team can make the right use of IT alerting and proactively extend support for restoration and routine maintenance when needed.

Situational awareness to improve demand flow 

To ensure expansion and continuous growth of energy production, Zapoj promotes efficient management of production and distribution. Since COVID-19 has erupted, it has largely affected the distribution. Besides the travel restrictions, the usual supply chain disruptions occur due to inclement weather. The man-made disasters or uncertainty of political violence can disrupt the supply chain and logistics. Visual risk intelligence improves situational awareness, predicting the vulnerability with the evolving scenarios that suggest ways to avoid risk along the routes in real-time.

Emergency situations in the facility are also a top cause to impact employee productivity and efficiency. Visual risk intelligence can predict threats and identify vulnerabilities that trigger facility disruptions. Simulation of data from weather feeds, social networks, or field sites can reveal potential threats to regulatory compliance and health risk. With predictive analytics, leaders know and improve decisions to assess appropriate resources and strengths for minimizing threats like fire, floods, or active shootouts at the facility.

Intuitive Zapoj helps leaders determine active pathways to optimize tools and anticipate demand by minimizing the impacts of critical events or man-made disasters.
