From upstream to midstream to downstream operations, oil and gas companies often house multiple facilities across hundreds of acres of land, making the idea of not only standardizing but digitizing processes seem difficult. Frontline workers are far out in different areas of the plants, sometimes away from any wireless connection, making it difficult to communicate work instructions, SOPs, and other task management requirements. Fortunately, Webalo enables oil and gas companies to transform their entire end-to-end process by providing a wide range of key capabilities all seamlessly tied together into a single platform.
In Garter’s recently published report, Hype Cycle for Frontline Worker Technologies, 2020, Webalo is included as a connected factory worker sample vendor, which is rated as a technology that provides a “transformational benefit” to frontline workers. Webalo is focused on providing the 3.5 billion frontline workers in the global workforce today with the connected worker technology they require to stay safe, efficient, and content in their work environments.
On February 6, 2020 we issued a press release highlighting our progress on Frontline Workforce enablement. We started this initiative in January 2019--so it's been a full year of recognizing the needs of those task workers that require a paperless workday to complete their jobs, whether it's executing a quality test, checking the status of equipment on the line, or conducting necessary procedures such as shift changeovers, schedule changes or clean in place processes.
