Why Oil&Gas Industries Need Mobile Apps

Mobile technology is playing more and more significant role in our lives. Even industries which are not tightly combined with up-to-date technologies today are really wanting to involve into a mobile world. Oil and gas industries are not the exceptions. Taking into account that the above industries suppose in-field activities having a mobile app is a must-have for them. A lot of in-field businesses suffer from tons of paper forms they need to fill out and handle daily. That is time consuming and not convenient as paper can be easily damaged,lost that will mean both time and money wasting. We are living in the 21st century when it is a high time to think about forests preservation and digital forms is the best alternative ever. Using electrical forms will not only eliminate paper usage but make the whole work process easier and  more straight forward. That is thousand times user friendlier to have all necessary forms and documentation on one device and have 24/7 access to them than trying to sort out piles of paper which are just increasing all the time. Using mobile devices and tablets it is really simple to share,deliver and handle big amounts of data.

Let's take a look at the Oil and Gas industries alone. They are huge and urgently need a mobile approach. There are a lot of types of mobile apps which can created  here to simplify a hard work of employees. Mostly data collecting apps may perfectly fit the niche. The following types of forms are frequently used in oilfields:

- job estimators
- weekly timesheets
- risk assessments
- equipment inspections
- accident reports
- internal work orders
- mining operations checklists
- oil production reports
- drilling reports
- etc.
