EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Sept. 16, 2016) - OneSoft Solutions Inc. (the "Company" or "OneSoft") (TSX VENTURE:OSS) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary OneBridge Solutions Inc. ("OneBridge") was one of four vendors invited to present as part of Microsoft's "Executive Insights; The Impact of Digital and IoT in Oil & Gas" presentation at the IoT Energy Conference for Oil & Gas held this week in Houston, Texas. The objective of this conference, attended by Oil & Gas technology leaders, was to educate and demonstrate the progression that has been made from theory to actual application of industrial IoT ("Internet of Things") to solve business problems today in the Oil & Gas industry. OneBridge's Microsoft journey and its solutions which leverage Data Science, Azure Machine Learning, HoloLens and other components of Microsoft's Cloud platform and services were presented at the conference by Brandon Taylor, CTO and President of OneBridge USA operations.
Mr. Taylor commented, "We are very pleased and excited to be early innovators in the Industrial IoT era, which conference organizers characterize as a technology paradigm change that will have significant economic impact in the Oil & Gas industry. This change will be at least as impactful as past revolutionary changes like the adoption of robotic manufacturing in the mid 1960's and the evolution of lean manufacturing processes that progressed from Henry Ford's early methodologies in the 1920's. Our early adoption of Microsoft Cloud in 2011, followed by our participation in Microsoft's Accelerator Program that focused on Data Science and Machine Learning earlier this year, enabled us to develop and implement what we believe is the first and premiere IoT integrity management solution for the Oil & Gas pipeline industry that is based on the Microsoft Cloud platform. Our SaaS solutions offer disruptive and greatly improved methodologies, which we expect will quickly be adopted by customers because of the highly-compelling value propositions they represent."
Following OneBridge's four-month technology development sprint as a participant in the Accelerator program at Microsoft's Seattle facility in June, 2016, private preview customers were enlisted to use our new solutions, and are now providing user input and feedback which will assist us to optimize them prior to their general release to market. OneBridge has essentially operated as a pre-revenue start-up to this point, and we anticipate that the commercial release of our new SaaS solutions in calendar Q4 of 2016 will find enthusiastic market acceptance and trigger the commencement of revenue generation.
We look forward to providing updates during the next weeks and months, as OneBridge continues to evolve.
