Utilities industry

Ensure optimal functioning of installations with a focus on environmental health and safety management.

Many utility producers are heavily regulated and therefore intensely focus on meeting compliance requirements and managing safety risks. 

In order to ensure that things are done “first time right”, thousands of Standard Operating Procedures and Work Instructions are created and distributed throughout the organization. Each of these documents provides a step-by-step description of how a process or activity should be done. Unfortunately, documents are fine for reading at a desk, but hardly usable while working. These documents are mostly used for training, but no one really knows whether they are truly followed as there is no execution trace. 

In order to confirm that things have been done right, hundreds of checklists are created and regularly filled in during inspections. Most checklists are still paper based and generate quite some non-value-added administration. 

Traditional inspection forms, whether paper-based or digital, are hard to use while doing a job that requires you to use both hands. Moreover, checklists are a passive registration of what’s good and what’s not. They don’t provide an adequate solution for how to escalate issues effectively and to ensure that they get solved.

Our solution

Proceedix is a digital inspection and instruction workflow execution platform. The core of our system is not a form but a workflow specifying each task of an instruction or inspection and indicating how it should be done right. Each time a workflow is performed, all details are logged in a unique execution.

The Proceedix platform has various features particularly designed to cope with typical instruction and inspection execution requirements in the utility industry.

Typical use cases in the Utilities Industry include:

  • Line monitoring
  • Installation safety controls
  • Periodical asset inspections
  • Maintenance and repair instruction execution
  • Infrastructure inspections

Use cases

Conditional workflow paths

Workflow editor functionality that allows you to determine which specific tasks the operator should do, depending on the situation at hand.

Integration API

Module enabling a bi-directional connection of Proceedix with ERP/CMMS/EHS.

Workflow execution with smart glasses

Instructions and inspections can be executed entirely hands-free with our Proceedix application on AR smart glasses.

Issue escalation mechanism

Workflow mechanism enabling the operator or inspector to escalate an issue to the right team in a click with full execution traceability.

Offline workflow execution

Proceedix instructions and inspections can be executed with any Windows, Android or iOS tablet, phone or ATEX device both in an off-line and online situation.
