Let’s be honest, we’re all resistant to change at some point or another. It’s in our nature. Humans desire familiarity, security, and above all else – predictability. We don’t like altering major day-to-day activities if we don’t have to. As the old saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” But, does the same phrase really hold true in the field service industry? Can you really thrive by playing it safe and clinging to old processes?
Field service software is beneficial for oilfield companies of all shapes and sizes because it helps to maximize and scale operational activity. Today, most oilfield companies have at least one field service management system in place. Without one, operations, ticketing and invoicing becomes even more complicated than it already is. Whereas, if you have a field service software in place, the process of managing systems, services and customers becomes much more straightforward.
Many oil and gas companies manage their field service ticketing by hand. But with the rise of technology, digitalization has been on everyone’s mind. The industry is going through a major period of change. Producing better margins is the name of the game and digitalization can bring substantial improvements to field operations.
If digitalization is the remedy we’ve all been waiting for, then why have so few companies embraced its implementation? In today’s blog, we’ll explore this topic and how your oilfield company can strike a balance between digital and paper.
Getting your invoices out the door is the only way your company can receive payments for oilfield work. So, removing any bottlenecks in the process is an important way to improve cash flow.
