We've all worked with frustrating, outdated software. It's a pain to try and get everything to work the way you want it to, and the task is usually just too important or time-sensitive to take a break from. Everyone knows where that leads - yelling, cursing, or just slouching down in your chair in defeat, bested by technology once again.
During March 2016 our client decided that they were done working through this frustration. They wanted to update their data entry, schedule updating, and reporting processes so that they could streamline more effectively and remove these hassles from their everyday life. In addition to this, the refinery was looking for a way to develop a more effective cost control method for their turnarounds. Their current software just wasn't cutting it anymore. So they came to Emerald Associates for assistance - and luckily, we knew just the right programs to meet their needs.
Using P6-Loader, TAPS, EP-Datawarehouse and EP-Dashboard, Emerald Associates was able to give our client the software they deserved. No more despairing over yet another system crash or panicking over the disappearance of important data - now they had software that they could work with.
Thanks to Emerald's P6-Loader, our client was able to drastically cut down on the amount of time they spent poring over data. Automatic schedule updates went from taking hours to a matter of minutes, and custom dashboards and green-ups could now be created and automatically updated using EP-Datawarehouse and EP-Dashboard. This made the whole process move a lot smoother and much faster. Our client drastically reduced their need for manual entry, cutting down on errors and saving yet more time. The P6-Loader was a big step up from their previous way of managing things, not to mention significantly faster and far less likely to be tear-inducing.
This client still uses P6-Loader, TAPS, EP-Datawarehouse and EP-Dashboard to this day. No more outdated software for them - from now on, it's smooth sailing.
