Case Study / Hydro Tasmania

“BlueWorx was fast and easy to deploy with the initial setup taking only 30 days, and the implementation costs were minimal.”

Hydro Tasmania

Hydro Tasmania, Australia’s leading clean energy business and it’s largest generator of renewable energy. Hydro Tasmania employs over 1,200 people and manages a large asset footprint, producing 9,000 gigawatt hours of clean electricity – enough to sustainably power 900,000 Australian homes and businesses. Their infrastructure includes 30 hydropower stations, 54 major dams, 188 headwork gates and valves, 43 pipelines, and 63 generators.

Hydro Tasmania was seeking a mobile asset management application that would connect with its SAP ERP backend and fit existing and required data structures. New requirements included the addition to GIS maps, improved functionality for work orders and notifications, and the ability to attach documents and videos. They were also seeking to increase their user base by over 100%, from 20 to 50.

BlueWorx provided Hydro Tasmania with the right balance between extensive functionality and simplicity of configuration and use. The implementation took 60 days end-to-end, including involvement from business users.

The key decision-making factors for Hydro Tasmania included:

Faster sync times and more data transfer
Ability to use both mobile devices and desktop with a consistent look and feel
No middleware or additional infrastructure required
Heightened user experience with offline capabilities
Ability to be used by different work groups with different requirements
Could be easily supported by in-house developers, reducing the total cost of ownership

Ultimately, work that is allocated faster is work that is completed sooner. Fewer delays and less paperwork translated to lower costs, better maintained assets, and improved business outcomes.

The speed and user interface optimized for mobile make it so easy. Everything I need it at my fingertips, and there is no running back and forth because an upload was unsuccessful.”

We have successfully implemented BlueWorx for a large oil and gas company.

The pain points they faced included an inability to carry out inspections in an efficient manner, major transmit fails due to being unable to upload large data volume, and cryptic error messages. They key driver for the client is the ability to easily enhance the out of the box functionality to suit their business model and needs. This ultimately gave them enhanced field capabilities and access to digital documentation to assist in optimizing their daily tasks.”
