We know that the demands on today’s field engineers are immense. They’re responsible for overseeing operations from start to finish, for maintaining worker safety while ensuring compliance with multiple regulatory requirements, and also for countless admin tasks and team management.
Now consider what it’s like to effectively manage these tasks while on a remote land site or offshore drilling rig!
- How can relevant project information be shared collaboratively with other field workers, project team members and management?
- How can critical information be updated securely and accessed while in the field?
- How can this be accomplished when there is no (or inconsistent) connectivity because of the remote location of the drilling rig or challenging terrain?
Mobile collaboration software has made great strides toward credibly addressing the challenges of remote information access, sharing, and document management.
In our latest paper, I discuss how the Oil & Gas industry can leverage SharePoint (on prem or in the cloud) for empowering field engineers. I go over digital workplace trends, mobility strategies and recommendations.
