The Cost-Saving Potential of Real-Time Inspection Feedback in the Energy Industry

December 12, 2023

Duration: 55 minutes

In the energy industry, accuracy and traceability in inspection reporting are critical for maintaining safe, compliant, and cost-effective operations. Traditional methods—which often rely on paper-based reporting and Excel spreadsheets—are increasingly recognized for their limitations, including human error and time required to convert paper reports to digital format. Yet paper, excel spreadsheets, and other manual methods remain entrenched as a primary reporting tool.

Without real-time feedback through a digital platform, organizations leave massive cost savings and operational efficiencies on the table. When every second counts solving a mission-critical anomaly, digitizing inspections means less human error, less wasted time, and more accurate data.

In this webinar, Ritwik Bose, Managing Director of Technology Consulting, and Chad Alessi, Solution Architect for Energy, share:

  • The current state of energy inspections
  • The challenges of paper-based or excel-driven inspections
  • The cost implications of delays in solving problems
  • How organizations can take steps to go digital
  • An overview of a platform designed for real-time inspections across your organization
