Arnlea’s Intrinsix software, and IntrinsixEX specifically, is a powerful tool for your people. Here we discuss in more detail its benefits and the value it brings to oil & gas, LNG and other energy businesses, and for other sectors where electrical inspections are critical.
IntrinsixEX uses auto-ID mobile technology to increase compliance and decrease costs in your Ex inspections and maintenance activities. Compliant with IEC 60079 standards and ATEX directives, its benefits can be usefully divided into financial, deployment, user and HSEQ themes to fully appreciate the value IntrinsixEX brings to each partner business that uses it.
Health & Safety are key drivers for any business, none more so than in our industry. By eploying IntrinsixEX, and using it as expected, you’re already ensuring that you or your own client is inspecting hazardous equipment, anything subject to ATEX regulations, in the correct manner.
Our software supports your own HSEQ protocols and ensures that you properly adhere to ATEX because that is how it’s been designed. This also ensures you’re conducting Ex inspections as safely as possible. IntrinsixEX integrates easily with SAP and Maximo, and so it will create inspection reports, management information and an audit trail for any single inspector or piece of equipment. This gives you additional Health & Safety reporting, as required.
Intrinsix software has been designed with the end user in mind. Working on Windows or Android devices, the latest versions operate via a user-friendly interface, that has been designed with the user experience in mind. This makes training on the software straightforward. It also creates a sense of familiarity with the software quickly and easily, freeing up your inspection team to carry out Ex inspections quickly and easily, in a productive, open frame of mind. Typically, their efficiency improves 150%. Tasks are easy to assign and complete, bringing more interest to the role and higher job satisfaction, factors that are known to contribute to your employees’ commitment to your business and health and wellbeing.
IntrinsixEX allows more inspections to be performed more quickly, which means that you can reduce the number of inspectors you need offshore at any one time. This brings additional financial and HSEQ benefits. Reducing the number of overall people offshore improves health & safety and also improves the use of both resources and budget.
The investment in IntrinsixEX improves operational efficiency at all levels of the Ex inspection process. Each inspection period is reduced by up to 50% as a direct result of Arnlea’s in-built Risk-Based Inspection (RBI) strategy. This means your people can be used for other areas of responsibility, bringing additional cost-savings offshore. Equipment is maintained or repaired much more quickly than otherwise, allowing for fewer faults to develop.
With a single central location for all data-inputting and recording, teams of people can access that data rapidly. Reporting is uniform and consistent and ultimately that leads to enhanced operational decision-making that assists with driving more value into the business and the reduction of costs.
If we were to summarise the benefits of IntrinsixEX to any oil and gas operator or their partners, it has to come down to its ability to deliver greater safety and lower costs for the asset where its deployed. As the Ex inspection software of choice in the North Sea, we work closely will all our clients to create bespoke solutions that suit each particular customer’s own requirements. Our software is flexible enough to be tailored to integrate with the systems you need and deliver the critical processes you value.
