In today's rapidly evolving world, the Energy Sector faces many challenges, requiring efficient and reliable field service management solutions like never before. To meet these demands head-on, Arnlea, a pioneering provider of innovative software solutions, has introduced Nexar, a cutting-edge Software as a Service (SaaS) solution that revolutionises traditional field service management practices.
Gone are the days of cumbersome paper-based processes, which often lead to delays, errors, and lost data, not to mention the considerable time taken for data collection, analysis, and reporting. In today's competitive landscape, companies need dynamic information delivered rapidly, enabling better-informed, strategic decision-making to stay ahead of competitors and adapt to market fluctuations.
Nexar rises to this challenge by seamlessly connecting field data to the office in real time. It empowers office staff with up-to-date information from the field, facilitating more informed and timely decision-making. Front-line workers, equipped with the latest handheld, fixed reader, RFID, and barcode technology, can execute their field operations quickly, easily, and safely. As a result, companies can enhance productivity, safety, and compliance while significantly reducing operational costs.
So, what are the tangible digital benefits of employing Nexar in your organisation?
Efficiency: Nexar effortlessly integrates with its clients' corporate ecosystems, consolidating data from various sources into one digital system. This enables companies to monitor the health and performance of their assets efficiently. Moreover, the platform provides powerful analytical tools that predict maintenance needs, optimise resource allocation, and enhance overall asset performance.
Reduced Inspection Times: With a Risk-Based Inspection (RBI) strategy configuration, Nexar can cut inspection campaign times by up to 50%. This approach allows companies to prioritise critical assets, saving time and resources while maintaining high safety standards.
Safety: Health and safety is critical in the Energy industry, and Nexar's user interface, experience, and enhanced mobility options reduces the time inspectors and field workers spend in hazardous areas, enhancing overall safety.
Compliance: Using traditional methods of pen and paper and storing data in multiple databases often leads to the loss of data; therefore, making companies non-compliant with industry standards. However, Nexar fully complies with international standards and guidelines, including ISO 9001 and ISO 27001, as well as business and material management regulations. By utilising Nexar, companies can ensure adherence to their business standards and stay compliant with industry requirements.
Sustainability: Nexar fosters operational efficiency, reducing the time inspectors need to spend in the field and lowering transportation costs. Additionally, being cloud-based, Nexar helps reduce CO2 emissions by half compared to an on-premise server.
Security: Arnlea's Nexar has obtained ISO 27001 and Cyber Essentials accreditations, ensuring a secure environment with proper validation and authentication of EPR/EAM system users on its handheld mobile devices or desktop applications.
Analytics: Leveraging Nexar's powerful analytics and reporting capabilities, energy companies can make informed, data-driven decisions. The software provides in-depth insights into asset performance, workforce productivity, and operational efficiency. By analysing this data, companies can identify trends, optimise processes, and develop strategies for continuous improvement, resulting in higher profitability and customer satisfaction.
Communication: Effective communication and collaboration are critical in the Energy Sector, where field technicians often work in remote and challenging environments. Nexar provides real-time data, enabling real-time collaboration, ensuring faster issue resolution, improved knowledge sharing, and enhanced teamwork, ultimately boosting overall productivity.

“Arnlea were excellent at assisting us in solving many problems at a granular level, understanding our needs and enabling a smooth data migration onto the Nexar platform. We then had a solid basis for moving forwards in establishing consistent and accurate CompEx data across the plant, enabling our inspectors to successfully resolve many issues and dramatically improve the quality and accuracy of reporting to the client and safety monitoring. We find that the app gathers all the data well, and custom reports enable us to present professionally to the client. Back-office management of the site in Nexar is very straightforward.”
