In a recent survey conducted by Oil and Gas IQ, of CIOs in the oil and gas industry, mobile technology was number 2 of the top ten priorities, and 55% of respondents felt it would greatly enhance their operations, however only 16% have employed a mobility strategy so far.
Nevertheless, mobile oil and gas applications are transforming the industry and having a great impact on the business today.
More and more oil and gas companies today are tending to use mobile apps. It has always been a challenge to manage both offshore and onshore operations in a competitive, constantly changing and heavily regulated environment which is what the oil and gas industry is. Mobile applications not only help to eliminate these challenges, but also contribute to a better productivity, safety and operational performance.
Here is a number of benefits companies get from utilizing the oil and gas field apps:

This is essential for operations, inspections, safety procedures, maintenance and repair processes. Reducing cycle time, in its turn, leads to reducing costs and saving money.
