Like many companies that operate in remote parts of Canada, Stony Valley is prepared for difficult and often harsh weather conditions. But using a paper-based data collection "system" for on-site inspections was creating an added challenge for field crews dealing with moving plants and simply getting records from the field to the head office. Following a major flood that washed away most of the company's documents, Stony Valley was forced to reevaluate their entire operating procedures, coming to the conclusion a paperless solution could streamline field operations and empower their back-end data.
After a lot of research into safety applications and demos with large EHS software vendors failed to offer a solution, Stony Valley re-connected with the provider of an under utilized safety software system they had worked with for over ten years—Spence Software. Having recently partnered with Resco, an established European developer of a cloud based data entry application, Spence was able to provide Stony Valley with a turnkey solution for capturing data in the field. As well as converting the company's 20+ paper forms into digital templates, Spence developed a bridge from the cloud data repository to the S2Web database creating a seamless record flow from the field to the head office.
