HOUSTON, TX (November 14, 2018) – Detechtion Technologies, the global leading Industrial IoT and Mobility solution provider in the oil and gas industry, today announced that its Fieldlink™ mobility software now offers enhanced location-based services, including geofencing and location tracking, to support fully automated and auditable field data capture.
Producers and vendors can take advantage of Fieldlink’s ability to perform an activity, such as changing a job’s status, or reminding the user of key safety information, when a mobile device enters or leaves a geofenced area. Such capability increases the number of applications Fieldlink can provide across compression management, chemical management, wellpad automation, electronic ticketing for hauling applications and EH&S compliance.
Enabling location tracking can provide evidence of vehicle check-in, custody signatures, and wait time. Capturing such information can ensure more accurate, auditable data for the producer and more timely payment (and reduced DSO) for the vendor.
“Geofencing is the most anticipated new Fieldlink feature in quite a while,” said Colin Hendricks, Senior Vice President of Software Development at Detechtion. “It allows the software to do things automatically on the user’s behalf based on current location, which increases productivity, removes the reliance on human interaction and maximizes transparency for all involved parties.”
