Arnlea Systems Ltd is the global leader in industrial mobile software for tracking, inspection and maintenance for the oil & gas industry. As a SaaS provider, Arnlea works with a wide range of energy and other global operators across Europe, Asia and the Americas providing IntrinsixEX, its hazardous ATEX inspections and reporting software.
Intrinsix is the culmination of over 25 years of customer intelligence integrated within Arnlea’s solutions, making us a trusted partner for our clients. The past two years has seen the products emerge as leading branded software in the marketplace, and Arnlea taking its place as market leader on the UK continental shelf, punching above its weight worldwide.
Intrinsix is available as a complete solution or in separate modules – Intrinsix for Inspections & Maintenance (IntrinsixIM), Intrinsix for Materials Management (IntrinsixMM) as well as Intrinsix for the inspection & maintenance of hazardous area equipment (IntrinsixEX).
The international focus of the business is evident; Arnlea’s website carries an interactive map to highlight the global reach of the business as it grows, showcasing the scale and scope of our Intrinsix suite of cloud-based software in use worldwide.
The last twelve months have seen a number of international clients sign up or renew their contracts, often upgrading to the latest handsets or to cloud-based applications, including Oman & Ireland (Arnlea wins onshore opportunities in 3 different markets); Guyana (SBM Offshore) and the USA (TOTE Services).
Clients deploying Intrinsix are experiencing multi-million-pound savings and payback of the system well within a year, whilst improving operational excellence, compliance, asset integrity and reducing their OPEX.
The software’s Risk-Based Inspection (RBI) strategy can reduce inspection campaigns by up to 50%, freeing teams to focus on other areas of responsibility, giving inspectors a full picture of RBI alarms and thresholds for individual tags, areas and work orders, automatically improving their recognition and efficiency.
This track record has meant Arnlea is now also working with a number of global onshore plant operators who have deployed IntrinsixEX, demonstrating the cloud-based software’s flexibility for onshore and plant inspection and asset management, as well as its traditional offshore base. In addition, they’re providing IntrinsixEX to LNG operators in the Middle East and traditional oil and gas operators in the Asia-Pacific region, as well as commercial vessels converting to LNG in the US.
IntrinsixEX uses auto-ID mobile technology to increase compliance and decrease costs in Ex inspections and maintenance activities and is compliant with IEC 60079 standards and ATEX directives. This makes it highly desirable for businesses seeking to improve or streamline their compliance into their overall operating systems. IntrinsixEX materially improves operations across a host of different profit centres, including Finance, Deployment, Data & Reporting, User and HSEQ levels, and will continue to bring together many cost and productivity efficiencies to benefit oil & gas inspection operations and other commercial on and offshore teams.
We became a Gartner client mid-2020 to strengthen our strategic planning for business growth. This decision has enabled access to unrivalled market and competitor information, and also helps support clients and future clients make positive decisions about deploying their Intrinsix inspection, maintenance and inventory software.
Arnlea is a tried and trusted partner for many global oil & gas clients, with more than 25 years’ expertise in supply chain management and operational management activities, providing software solutions to the oil & gas industry.
There’s no resting on our laurels; because there’s always that question: how can we improve our SaaS offering to our customer? The senior team has led the charge to add better functionality to our software so that it is available on different platforms. As the android and iOS worlds have grown, we’ve been stepping in tandem with that progress.
Arnlea has formally set out its cloud-first strategy and is actively marketing its cloud-based web applications for international growth. With the market more willing to listen, we have a far more receptive audience. In addition, we’re a Microsoft Silver Partner, our formalised cloud-based applications possess the additional benefit of Microsoft’s security architecture for all our customers who take this next step.
We’ve made sure that we’re continually improving our systems, processes and software brands. This in itself is a highly innovative approach in our part of the industry; constantly looking at how we can improve and the way that we do things. By formalising our SaaS strategy, we’re demonstrating that we’re a serious partner for our customers for the next decade and beyond.
The global pandemic has prompted many Oil & Gas operators to embrace digital transformation such as cloud-based Office 365 and by taking that step, moving inspection software and its data to cloud-based platforms suddenly becomes a more natural move forward. We’re excited about the possibilities that this holds for Arnlea and the opportunities that lie ahead.
