MONTREAL, Jan. 24, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - 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
(Blackberry, Android, iPhone, 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.
Benefits of new the applications
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 and 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.

solutions aimed at streamlining its clients' business processes and
ensuring that they are equipped to fulfil their sustainability and
corporate social responsibility (CSR) commitments. Borealis is
