CALGARY, Dec.13, 2018 /CNW/ - Spira Data Corp. ("Spira" or the "Company") (spiradata.com), a provider of cloud-based operations software for the oilfield services, construction and safety sectors, is pleased to announce the strategic acquisition of eJourney Manager ("eJourney") (ejourneymanager.com), a mobile platform that automates journey management, risk assessment, and work alone processes. The addition of eJourney's extensive HSE compliance capability expands Spira's industry-leading Operations Resource Platform (ORP™) to address the information needs arising for companies managing staff and operations in the field. The acquisition closed December 11th, 2018.
eJourney Manager is the only work-alone and journey management software delivering real-time management awareness and approval of assessed risk through active alerts on worker's activities. eJourney provides proactive HSE compliance and operational efficiencies for clients around the globe. The existing capabilities of Spira's ORP™, which include a single system for invoicing, costing, payroll, utilization, maintenance, safety and compliance, will be significantly enhanced by eJourney's mobile technology. The forward-looking approach and combined capability of Spira and eJourney will merge mobile worker risk management with revenue, cost and utilization intelligence, immediately informing the office, while keeping workers safe and productive.
"We are very excited to combine eJourney's mobile platform with Spira's existing ORPTM expanding our offering to advance our clients efficiencies and profitability," said Kevin Ludbrook, President and CEO of Spira. "Incorporating this solution will address legislated compliance requirements, extend our capability to adjacent industries, and capture opportunities that will further fuel Spira's growth. Consolidating this information in one place is essential for organizations to proactively address HS&E compliance and reduce worker safety risk."
"We have leveraged our extensive knowledge of compliance legislation and worked closely with our mobile users to understand and then address our clients' needs. These efforts position us uniquely as a service provider capable of international expansion into foreign markets while serving our existing clients with a value-added solution focused on worker safety." said eJourney Manager's CEO Cam Mitchell. "The integration of our existing platform into Spira's ORPTM gives us a far greater reach and we are excited about what the collective capability brings to eJourney's existing clients and the industry as a whole."
Companies utilizing Spira's ORP™ are changing the way information from operations is gathered, distributed and analyzed by oilfield, construction, logistics digitally-linking field and office, creating a single data source for revenue, cost, compliance, utilization and scheduling. Spira's ORP™ consists of distinct but interrelated parts used together or independently to decrease the resources required to efficiently and effectively complete work that is distributed in the field. As part of its ongoing strategy, the Company continues to assess further opportunities for growth through acquisitions and partnerships.
Spira was founded in 2004 to address the complex challenge of digitally collecting and managing operational billing and payroll data generated from remote locations. With the growing volume of manually-recorded data associated with remote labor, equipment and materials in "off-line" environments, Spira developed the ORPTM; an innovative software platform to address this unique requirement. Spira's ORP™ serves markets across North America in Oil and Gas, Construction and Safety where the need exists to capture and transmit data for the back office to interpret and process.
