The web application was the idea of an individual who through many years of experience realised there was an opportunity to design and replace an industry endemic method of utilising Microsoft Excel spreadsheets to track pertinent project information.
This reliance of managing an entire department and team using spreadsheets and documents created an issue which made it a struggle to interrogate the sheets for meaningful detail and to share information across geographical and departmental ‘barriers’.
In an industry as vital and as pervasive as oil & gas there is a massive amount of software available. However, in certain areas the move to bespoke applications is incredibly slow and there exists, like in any industry, the possibility for innovation.
Just such a possibility was realised by a new client when they asked us to revolutionise an aspect of this industry by creating a unique web application.
Because of the reliance on Excel spreadsheets and other Microsoft office technologies the level of reporting and management on large scale ‘mega projects’ was difficult and incredibly hard to report upon and manage.
Because of data always being captured after an event any project ‘snapshot’ was always a description of how the project ‘was’ and not the state in which it currently existed. Also, it was impossible for geographically dispersed teams to collaborate effectively and in real-time.
Sapere took an existing suite of tools used for the capture and management of a project and redesigned the entire tool as a web application. By working alongside the client, where possible, we improved on aspects of the old process with new functionality and ensured the new application allowed collaborative working and real-time reporting too.
The completed web application allows any large scale project to be managed, in detail, from inception to delivery.

I wholly recommend the Sapere team to anyone needing bespoke software development work and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with…

With more than 10 years' experience providing solutions for the financial sector, the team at Sapere are talented, professional and good fun to work alongside.

I wanted a software solution that would both allow my business to grow with more ease and give my domestic and commercial clients a better experience. I approached several companies but decided to go with Sapere due to their professional and easy to understand approach to software development.
