Retriever Communications Delivers Field App Technology to Improve Reliability in Resource and Energy Sector

Barking for Assets Drives Better Efficiency and Accuracy for Field Operators and Managers

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Feb 25, 2015) - Retriever Communications, a global provider of industrial mobile workforce automation, today announced its Barking for Assets solution built for proactive asset inspection and maintenance in the resource and energy sector. Retriever's Barking for Assets is an advanced field application technology that empowers field operations, in coordination with engineering, in the delivery of Asset Care, rather than previous IT approaches that focus exclusively on centralized planning that often does not reflect on-site realities.

While there is a need for corporate standards, central policies can create overhead when applied to multiple projects across different geographies. In turn, poor asset management can impact the bottom line for those organizations that rely heavily on the availability of critical assets. According to Aberdeen research, over half of leading asset management companies are investing in technology to support and automate reliability-focused maintenance. Barking for Assets uses a multi-tier task template providing the flexibility, visibility, control, and resource management necessary to capture valuable data, improve operational efficiency, and manage assets safely and proactively in the field.

"When asset performance correlates directly with overall business revenue, the type of technology used to manage equipment is of the utmost importance," said Mary Brittain-White, CEO, Retriever Communications. "Retriever's technology cuts through the complexities of modern asset management to provide a planning and in field mobile solution that delivers authority to operational staff to adapt engineering guidance to their daily needs."

Barking for Assets is a mobile app that integrates directly into multiple enterprise systems simultaneously including enterprise asset management systems, engineering planning systems and M2M platforms. It supports employees that handle the planning and field operations within a company to reduce unexpected downtime, and serves as a single solution that's configurable to field and plant processes. Retriever's mobile solutions work in 3G, 4G and WiFi environments, as well as in limited and no wireless coverage areas.
