Say “energy industry” these days, and it brings to mind myriad energy sources besides the traditional oil and gas hegemons. With new and exciting technologies, today’s energy sectors face the challenge of adapting to a swiftly changing marketplace, mounting competition, rising costs, and ever-increasing regulatory pressure. Future-thinking companies are changing the game by turning to more innovative approaches.
Today, more and more leading-edge energy companies are embracing mobile solutions, with ground-breaking mobile tools providing unparalleled advantages for the energy industry’s diverse business and operational needs. For new and emerging energy companies, challenges such as lack of investment and operational inefficiency are no longer roadblocks. Mobile platforms are opening up unmatched networking and funding opportunities for new companies, not to mention inexpensive project management and development tools. From planning to deployment, today’s mobile tools are opening up doors every step of the way for up-and-coming green energy sectors, and giving them the boost they need to take off and thrive.
At the same time, traditional energy companies are finding solutions to age-old problems. The communication and information silos that were once an unavoidable reality of onshore and offshore field work are being nearly eliminated with mobile technology. With a wider broadband than ever before, mobile is allowing energy companies to gain essential, real-time communication from across their operations. No Internet, WiFi or cell service? Now, that’s not a problem. New mobile network solutions such as long-range Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) are providing seamless communication channels. Critical information can be provided instantaneously, which significantly improves safety, accuracy and productivity. Similarly, mobile administration platforms are allowing managers to track issues across the supply chain, and streamline operational processes. Scheduling tools, quality inspection apps, GPS-enabled capabilities and inventory tracking platforms are allowing for real-time data monitoring. Issues can be resolved as they happen, and root-cause analysis can start from the moment an issue arises. In this way, mobile technology is helping companies achieve higher productivity, better operational outcomes, improved safety compliance, equipment reliability, and better environmental outcomes.
Mobile technology is a game changer, providing innovative solutions to many of the challenges faced by today’s emerging and traditional energy companies. However, successful deployment of energy-sector mobile platforms requires special considerations, including multi-industry expertise, strong operational knowledge, rigorous safety and security attention, and high-bandwidth know-how.
