Using the CartoPac Field Server, Chevron Pipe Line will be able to deploy and manage its field data collection technology via the web. The web-based server provides field workers with complete, streamlined access to data on a handheld unit or laptop computer, centralizing data storage and providing unlimited availability with an Internet connection.
Chevron Pipe Line deployed CartoPac software in 2007 to help the company connect its field workers around the country to its database at the company’s headquarters in Houston, Texas. Using CartoPac Data Interchange (CDI) for ESRI ArcGIS, Chevron Pipe Line has standardized its data collection processes and reduced errors in data entry, saving the company valuable time and money.
CartoPac Data Interchange for ESRI ArcGIS makes it easy to transfer spatially accurate data from the field to the office, as well as provide field workers with the most up to date information from the main office. The CDI toolbar extension makes it easy to streamline the data collection loop with an easy-to-use interface that supports relational database functionality.
“For the past two years, Chevron Pipe Line has relied on CartoPac software to streamline their data collection process nationwide,” said Glenn Vlass president of CartoPac Field Solutions. “Now, they’re taking it to the next level by giving field workers the ability to interact with their centralized enterprise database from the field. We fully anticipate that they will begin to see increased field worker productivity almost immediately. Plus, field workers will have easy access to the information they need without making extra trips to the office to access complex GIS or CAD systems.”
