Experts predict a deficit of 10,000 to 40,000 petro technical professionals in the next few years. Mobile apps allow oil and gas companies to do more with fewer people by streamlining processes and making existing workers more productive. Digitizing business processes and paper forms enables oil and gas companies to:
The best mobile apps work offline, are optimized for one-handed data entry (i.e., speech-to-text) and tie into systems of record to auto-populate critical information for employees and share information with the rest of the organization more quickly.
By going digital, oil companies could realize up to 25% savings in operating costs, up to 8% higher production rates, and 2–4% lower project costs within the 1st full year.
With mobile apps, not only will data capture and sharing improve, but utilizing data to make better and faster business decisions will dramatically impact the company's bottom line.
