Projects Overview

A pipeline directional drilling company needed to generate consistently formatted daily progress reports for its drilling operations as well as extract reporting and progressing data to ensure consistency and minimum required data to be entered by all its field technicians. In addition, the customers of our client required near realtime progress reports based on estimates and actuals, costs and material used for the job. Prior to our digital solution, all reporting and data collection was done with Microsoft Excel, PDF and email.


Using the experience from past projects that involved pdf form management, we were able to create a secure file browser, and pdf forms module that executed complex built in acrojs logic. This information was then uploaded to the cloud to generate realtime progress and costing graphs. The app is internally distributed on both iPads and iPhones. The client is able to use the large database of PDF forms with calculations/formulas, images, signatures and other components to progress their work on a daily basis.

Key Features:

  • Embeded formulas in PDF forms
  • Web based portal for data browsing/dashboard
  • Access project related files from shared drives
  • Web portal access for clients to view project data

The solution provided an offline capable field service application to the drilling crew in low connectivity environment, while allowing the team to develop consistent report formats and constant communication and data transmission to the office.

  • Reduce scanning, data entry, storage costs 
  • Custom on premise solutions 
  • Standardize reporting in PDF documents
  • Activity logs of all field submissions

The implementation of this construction ERP is easy, user friendly, swift and cost efficient. Switch your focus from daily tasks to a strategic business intelligence model. Implemented in weeks with no impact to current systems.  IMAPS Construction ERP systems cost millions of dollars to companies from IT architectural design to implementation and maintenance. The return on investment would not be the same for SMEs that require a tool that provides traceability as well as management capabilities. IMAPS Construction ERP provides its users with the tools and intelligence of top competitors, but at a fraction of the cost of implementation.

Digital Fractal developed a mobile application with a user friendly business operating system that mimics the company operations, utilizing hundreds of PDF forms the company utilized for its reporting and daily operations. The company was able to perform complex scientific and estimating and forecasting calculations as we as have realtime data from the field to the head office which took weeks to get previously.
