Field Technician Toolkit Enables Automated Workflow and Electronic Field Data Acquisition

Quorum Business Solutions, Inc. (Quorum), a leading provider of business and information technology solutions for the oil, gas, and renewable energy industry, announces the release of the newest version of TechTools. TechTools is a laptop-enabled toolkit designed to provide field technicians with automated workflow for inspection and management of natural gas measurement facilities.

The latest release of TechTools incorporates many enhancements that improve and expand workflow efficiencies throughout the measurement department and the organization as a whole. Some of these enhancements include: the ability to attach documents to meter tests, meter changes and new install forms; test equipment form to track the make, model and recertification date to go along with the already existing meter test forms for Orifice, Coriolis, Ultrasonic, Positive Displacement and Turbine meters; customizable views of technicians' scheduled tests to assist in monthly work planning; and automated success / failure notifications of submitted test forms from the central office to technicians in the field.

TechTools enables measurement organizations to function more effectively by automating the data flow between the field and the office, and by creating workflow efficiencies that allow field technicians to optimize route scheduling and meter validation tasks and reporting. Additionally, these tools help increase the viability of gas and liquids measurement data by reducing error frequency and increasing data accuracy. The application consists of the following integrated modules: Meter Test, Meter Change, Meter New Install, Volume Calculator, Gas Quality Calculator, Gas Loss Calculators and Meter Test Scheduler. TechTools can be deployed as a stand-alone application, but its benefits are enhanced when integrated with Quorum's enterprise flow measurement software solution, Quorum PGAS.

Quorum will host an educational session to share the processes and benefits associated with an automated workflow and electronic field data acquisition application, such as TechTools, at the 2009 American School of Gas Measurement Technology on Wednesday, September 23 in Houston.
