Aiming to continually meet the needs of international clients in the mining, oil & gas industries who are working in difficult conditions in the field, Borealis (Boreal – Information Strategies), now offers new mobile applications for Blackberry, Android, iPhone and iPad.
These mobile applications are compatible with the Borealis IMS, the social responsibility and environmental performance software that makes it possible for employees to work off-line and paperless wherever they operate around the globe.
“When working in the desert or in the jungle in extreme conditions, network access is frequently difficult. Our partners have experienced this problem with connectivity on a repeated basis. We developed these new applications in collaboration with them to further facilitate their work” said the Chief Technology Officer, Philippe Hammond.
“Companies in the mining, oil & gas fields have been taking advantage of our social responsibility and environmental performance software Borealis IMS for more than five years. Thanks to our new applications, they will continue to do so with greater autonomy” explained the president, Jules Paquette.
Based on Web technologies, the Borealis IMS is the only software that provides a proven solution that can meet the social and environmental challenges facing the extractive industry.
In addition to providing timely access to existing information on a given project, Borealis IMS mobile applications and the new Borealis iPAD application both allow access to remote field data. There are many advantages for businesses:
- increased productivity of field crews
- integrated photography and GPS locations
- direct uploading of digital reports
- remote access to system software
- Borealis IMS data synchronization when network becomes available
In addition to the offered flexibility, Borealis has ensured that its new applications can be used in compliance with company policies relating to corporate security. Mindful of the need to be particularly careful when working with sensitive information online, Borealis has equipped its new applications with a host of safeguards to ensure data security such as password policies, encryption, secure connections, as well as a new function to automatically delete data collected on mobile devices if lost or stolen.
“Borealis is recognized internationally for its pioneering products and services in social responsibility management and environmental performance. Because of in depth experience acquired on-site, we continue to innovate and improve our offer for the benefit of our customers, “says Jules Paquette.
