Custom Software Apps & SharePoint Consulting


There seems to be a general consensus around the oil & gas industry that we need to move from paper to electronic field ticketing in order to improve the accuracy and speed of information from out in the field to the back office for operational efficiency, accounting, safety, project management, client & partner relationships, etc.

I’m sure you’ve heard at least one person in the office mention the idea after somebody entered the wrong information in terrible handwriting or spilled coffee all over a clipboard, but is your company ready to make the leap? Where would you even start on a project like that?

Entrance CEO, Nate Richards, will be speaking at III Forks in downtown Houston where he’ll give real world examples of the ways that other companies in the O&G sector have moved their field techs and back office to electronic ticketing and help you find the answer to some common questions like:

  • Is typing handwritten tickets & reports into Excel enough for us for now?
  • Which off the shelf system is best for us or should we just build one from scratch?
  • What happens when the guys in the field are “off the grid”?
  • What kind of device should we give the field techs?
  • How do we get a project like this approved and off the ground?

Join us for lunch to explore how electronic field ticketing can take your company farther, faster.
