Proscient simplifies the complexities of frontline operations. Organizations use Proscient to improve their production efficiency and lower operational risk by better managing workload against risk according to policy.  Moving beyond the simple management of permits, Proscient provides organizations the capabilities to ensure policy is put into operational practice and to increase production efficiency by improving maintenance effectiveness and reducing the maintenance backlog.  Proscient helps organizations build risk based execution into their work management plans providing improved plan accuracy and plan attainment.

Proscient's support for iPad and iPhone devices allows frontline operational staff to work in online or offline mode to more efficiently manage frontline processes such as isolations management and gas test recording.  With integrated barcode and QR code scanning, staff can quickly understand the current status of isolations and work details saving valuable time and money as well as reducing human error and increasing safety and efficiency.  By supporting offline usage as well, employees can continue working safe in the knowledge that all of the relevant data is being collected and will be synchronized back to base when connectivity is regained.

"Proscient's mobility capabilities will help the industry move away from legacy, hard to use and unsupported mobile operating systems solutions to familiar and intuitive iPad and iPhone devices. With the ability to use off the shelf iPads and iPhones with Zone 1 and 2 intrinsically safe cases and Proscient's mobile app, frontline operational staff can be more efficient and stay safer," said Scott Lehmann, Vice-President of Product Management at Petrotechnics.  "With the easiest and most intuitive user experience available on the market today organizations can see significant gains in productivity and safety with real time access to critical business processes, work activity and capabilities to record and update gas tests and manage isolations," added Lehmann.
