Hi, everybody, this is Dennis Martin with SPOC Automation. I hope you’re doing well out there.
Today, I would like to discuss with you SCADA software solutions.
Being in the business for 20+ years. I’ve had a lot of clients that have asked us over the years, what exactly is SCADA? How do I need to use it? What kind of options are out there? And what do I need to best oversee and manage my assets, facilities, wells?
First off, I’d like to talk to you about the term SCADA, which is used in the business, too, for all types of software solutions. SCADA stands for supervisory control and data acquisition, which means scanning whether that’s wells, facilities, assets or any type of automation you have out in the field.
So, not only scanning those wells, but being able to know what state the well is in, if it’s currently in an alarm condition, if it’s operating to its optimum level, if tank levels are full, to tracking meantime between failures. So, it’s really a big term for a lot of software solutions in the marketplace today.
That being said, the clients also ask me, so what exactly do I need or not need in most instances? And much like with our smartphones and they have tons of apps and everything you can do to optimize – use your phone is a tool – to help you optimize everything in your daily life or work or whatever, you may not need the 12 to 15 of those apps. SCADA is kind of that solution. So, in thinking about a SCADA solution that’s what you need to look at.
What exactly am I trying to do with my asset, my wells? What do I want to monitor? And just get the solution that best fits your application operations or enterprise. Well Optix is one of our SPOC Automation solutions that is not only full featured, but it’s also very affordable, it’s very expandable and it can scan your wells on the desktop or alert you on the phone, you can scan the wells with your phone, and just take care of the assets and wells with no overkill.
I like to tell our clients that we have a full featured solution that will expand with your assets, wells, facilities, but not be so overpowering that your operations team won’t be able to use it. Or it’s something that’s not used to its optimum level.
So, not only is Well Optix a full feature solution, but it’s also very affordable. So, we would welcome the opportunity to talk more with you about our Well Optix solution or do a live demo of the system. And we would welcome the opportunity to meet with you and discuss it further.
So, please feel free to reach out to me directly and I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you.
