When a line is drawn connecting dots, the outline of a bigger picture becomes clear. This is the premise of ENGAGE, a game-changing and intuitive asset integrity platform that supports integrity needs across the full asset life cycle. Brought to market by CAN Group, ENGAGE connects the dots between asset data and integrity, streamlining engineering and inspection processes and driving efficiencies.
The platform differs from its industry counterparts in that it does not conform to the one-size fits all that software companies sell as an off-the-shelf product. It has been developed in-house by Integrity professionals for Integrity professionals to offer a revolutionary view of data management. In addition, the modular design of ENGAGE promotes cost savings by allowing users to only pay for the components of the application that they use.
ENGAGE has already been deployed to positive effect for a number of existing clients and CAN Group, via its Engineering Business Stream ENGTEQ, is generating significant interest as organisations focus on technologies that will help ensure their assets can continue to operate safely, efficiently and successfully for years to come.
A further development of the ENGAGE system is its direct and seamless integration with the CANtab™ tablet-based reporting system. Already successfully deployed on a number of contracts, CANtab™ has a proven track record of increasing tool time upwards of 25% whilst ensuring accuracy of inspection data and detail for full risk-based assessment and authoritative review.
Simon Hurst, ENGTEQ’s Engineering Director, commented: “We are supporting our clients in delivering to them tailored technical and cost optimised asset integrity support. The importance of discriminating between data and information is the backbone of any asset integrity system or process and ENGAGE and the ancillary modules such as CANtab™ ensure that the information is captured one time, and not lost in the sea of data sitting on a server or desk, or still stuck offshore on a piece of paper”.
In an industry faced with an unprecedented level of turmoil due to the compounding events of the COVID-19 pandemic and the collapse of Oil & Gas commodity prices, one thing is for sure; Asset Integrity & Reliability remains as, if not more important than ever.
