The Project

SSCGP wanted to solve the problems they were experiencing with the field engineers adequately diagnosing potential pipeline conditions and providing that data to the business. Their initial process consisted of 300+ fields on 4 -10 sheets of paper, and they have no less than 10 equivalent forms that may need to be completed for each pipeline. These paper forms were then hand entered into the overall system and audited for accuracy. If field data was inaccurate, new sheets would need to be created. In addition, there often were photos and other files attached to the document which would get lost during the various touch points that were involved.

Integration & Accuracy

GPS mapping integration for critical data points tied to latitude and longitude minutes and seconds.

Roles & Security

Workflow approval process with actions based upon user roles, including rejection capabilities.

Maintainability

Modular design so that additional workflows can be added with minimal IT effort by SSCGP.

Our experience with Centare was nothing short of amazing! Even our company's strongest skeptics became convinced… Centare helped to add value that will be appreciated for many years.
