Digital Transformation in an industrial context
Corporation mobility and mobile applications Entering in the novel numeric era, digital transformation becomes a real stake to be considered, particularly in any industrial context. Nowadays, think and/or conceive the industrial advocations evolution without include in your opinion the integration of all these novel technologies into modern working processes. By the way, several concrete examples are already available to be cited and further discussed. Considering the potentially involved productivity gains, corporation’s mobile applications are massively invading the industry related market. Effectively, nowadays, every industrialist would, and/or at least should, perform few professional processes on the appropriated device, i.e. the easier to manipulate and/or to reach one. Safenergy corporation focuses on challenges related to the mobility and the operational excellency. These challenges, potentially considerable as brakes regarding profitability, performance and services quality, could be still challenges but avoided as braking ones thanks to the digital transformation. Indeed, the digital transformation could make operational workers more efficient, this for several reasons illustrated later on. Firstly, the entire documentary system used onsite is available through the mobile application. Safenergy’s applications make the interactions between humans and machines more efficient. As an example, in order to train the operational workers, it is possible to use the creation process as a numeric model. It is also possible to use digital maintenance handbooks in order to guide operational workers step-by-step, this in a paper-based manuals replacement politics. On the other side, digital transformation tools such as smartphones and tablets could be used to gather useful data in order to upgrade the management and, by the way, the performance of actions taken onsite. These tools will allow to take pictures directly integrated to the database. These pictures will give a real plus in order to detect risks and defaults related to operational processes. Another important example is the increase of efficiency concerning the onsite inspection which involves an automatic reports edition process thanks to gathered data. Finally, the Safenergy solution additionally gives an analytical dashboard to gather and analyse users’ data. Thanks to a real-time visualization of human processes in industry, managers would be able to articulate the different processes more efficiently. Thus, advantages linked to digital transformation could be observed everywhere in industrial processes. It exists several arguments to the benefit of theses mobile apps:To facilitate and accelerate onsite missions, To strengthen the security and the quality of onsite collected data, To enhance the management easiness thanks to an upgraded vision on operational workers, To optimize industrial processes, To upgrade maintenance and inspection services thanks to analysis and onsite operational data gathering. However, resistances against this digital transformation can be spotted. One of the main problem IT departments are facing, while they are trying to make easier on-mobility working, concerns the type of applications they have to develop and deploy. Indeed, one of the IT managers’ important tasks is to prioritize the corporation mobility, precisely concerning a mobile applications development proper strategy. Safenergy is positioned as a mobile applications generation platform, conferring by the way a real advantage regarding the mobile application deployment strategy. Indeed, customers have the possibility to deploy not only one application but as many as needed. Moreover, thanks to SaaS model base software such as Safenergy, it is possible to quickly and directly access to various and pre-configured applications. Thus, configuration and deployment costs, imposed by the digital transformation, are mediumly divided by 10. The digital transformation is definitely already rapidly and clearly ongoing. Stay competitive by digitalizing your corporation today! We are here to carry you alongside this transformation.

Safenergy and penal liability of leaders
The penal responsibility of leaders is real. When an offense is committed within a group, a leader may have to answer for something committed by others. In penal law, the directors responsibility is retained when an offense is committed by one of his employees, if it was carried out on the behalf of the manager. In deed, are penally responsibles for the others’ facts, those who have a legal obligation to supervise the facts of an auxiliary or a subordinate. The leaders are therefore penally responsible when they don’t prevent others from committing an offense. It’s considered that the managers fail in their duty to ensure the proper application of laws when an offense is committed during the operation of the company by one or more employees. This offense is therefore imputed to the officer, so he must assume his participation to it. In terms of hygiene and safety at work, only the manager can be criticized for the failure and non-compliance with the regulations which must be imposed by the manager. The workers are supposed to be protected by the precautions of the leader, that’s why the Safenergy application provides a solution to the leaders. The Safenergy App allows the manager to cover himself since it helps with risk management and site safety management. The Safenergy App achieve a virtuous circle of excellence and continuous improvement. Thus, it induces a concept of quality ICIP® (Informing Control Intervene and Plan) which can be used by the leader to make representations in the field of Health and Safety Prevention (HSP) at work when offenses have been committed by their agents. Indeed, to counter penal risks, managers implementing the use of the Safenergy solution attest and prove their willingness to impose safety rules and to enforce laws and their Internal Regulations. Safenergy allows to control the penal responsibility of the Director and its company by providing, by default, pre-packaged modules around health and safety prevention issues on site, namely security meetings, golden rules, best practices, routine inspections, a turnkey incident reporting system, and a QSE Observation and Query Reporting module based on more than 350 QHSE checkpoints. All these elements are preloaded in the Application. Thanks to the Safenergy application, managers can anticipate the risks of infringements and have the proof of ensuring the safety of their employees. As a result, executives protect themselves from penalties that may be awarded to them because of an violation committed by employees. The Safenergy platform is therefore a mean of prevention and action for the penal responsibility of the leader. In fact, the informations, collected on the field, are transformed into a real tool for the company’s strategy and for the Management of Good Practices for Health and Safety Prevention (MGPHSP). Thus, trusting Safenergy, company managers can have a traceability of the actions performed by their employees but also have a proof that they ensure the safety of their collaborators. The Manager has traceability of safety meetings and training, organized by his team leaders, site managers, QSE prevention specialists.

SAFENERGY LAUNCHES SAFETYTAB, THE APP THAT BOOSTS SAFETY MANAGEMENT
SafetyTAB by Safenergy Preventing risks in your company is a real challenge. The available tools often lack simplicity and are not addressed to the workers, site managers and operators who are nevertheless the first concerned. The heaviness of the documentary system, the lack of traceability, the waste of time, the mobility of the teams are additional problems, commonly mentioned. SAFENERGY finally brings an answer with its new Mobile App for smartphones “SafetyTAB“. This App offers a complete, turnkey and very cost-effective security management system which also provides strategic functionalities for business leaders: automatic traceability, collaborative action plans, real-time reporting. SafetyTAB was born in oilfields‘ heart, in the most isolated and hostile environments. The App offers a simple, pragmatic method based on proven practices in industry and in the field. Some Innovative Uses: A Canadian company, Qualitas Inc., uses SafetyTAB to manage the safety of an oilfield construction site. The Calgary-based manager oversees his project based in Iraq.

Mobile Application Generators, industrial projects performance vector.
At the time of the Future Industry, Digital Technician and Application Performance Management is it possible to go further, towards Operational Excellence? The answer may come from Industrial Mobile Application Generation Platforms (also known as Application Plants) that can generate, by simple configuration, as many “operational” Mobile Applications as necessary. To say this, that it is possible to deploy not 1 or 10, but 100, and tomorrow 1000 different Mobile Applications for the piloting of a single large industrial project, necessarily involves 1. the reasons for doing so; 2. costs. 1- Concerning the reasons: an Applis Factory can now generate a Mobile App customized for each type of industrial operator according to his profile: maintenance technician, technical inspector or auditor, site manager, works supervisor, SPS coordinator …. With a dedicated Mobile App, each project actor becomes individually much more efficient. It has access to an operational document system of its own and to features designed for it, for its business and its needs (time saving, compliance with operational procedures, accelerated and collaborative processing of non-compliances …). The current problems of the construction site can also be integrated, such as the control of subcontractors, the security of operations at risk, the follow-up of Down-Time. The feedback of qualified “field” data will allow a more precise monitoring as well as the optimization of the project. Finally, depending on the project, other key themes can be easily integrated, for example Quality, Societal Management, Expatriate Safety or Local Content. 2 – Concerning costs: the main pitfall of Industrial Mobile Applications for technicians is often related to the design time, the drafting of specifications, and then to the development costs internally or via an IT services company. Added to this is the risk of developing Apps that are disconnected from operational, complex or uncomfortable needs that may ultimately not be used. Last, the collection and choice of “documents to dematerialize” and deployment times are usually brakes. An Application Plant simplifies and speeds up each step of this process to achieve extremely short field deployment times (potentially less than 1 day!). Not to mention that a Platform also allows to test a large number of different versions of Applications before the final deployment, without risk of being wrong in the design with associated financial losses. Agility and responsiveness therefore … Finally, by relying on a platform specialized in industrial mobility, IT departments of companies can focus all their energy on interfacing Mobile Apps with existing internal systems (SAP, GMAO ..) but also gathering, enriching and analyzing data from the field, thus playing an important role in Business Analytics. To conclude, Industrial Mobile Application Generation Platforms offer all the digital features that an operator in the factory or on the job site is entitled to expect for the execution of his work. An Applied Factory does not offer 1 or 10 specific Apps but 100 Apps and potentially 1000 Apps because the Platforms are now moving towards Automatic and Accelerated Generation processes. This innovation optimizes the upstream preparation of industrial projects, secures operations, increases productivity, facilitates remote project management, and reduces costs.

MOBILE APPLICATIONS AND OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE
Integrate Quality Concepts into your Mobile Apps Generate Mobile Apps on the fly Prepare your industrial projects OTHERWISE. In terms of management systems and continuous improvement, the gap between theory (written procedures) and practice (the use of company standards by operators in the field) is sometimes important. Mobile Applications can greatly facilitate the implementation of a process of operational excellence and safety culture on the site. Yet they must be well designed, thought and architectured. The simplicity, the accessibility, the ergonomics, the knowledge of the trade, the quality of the forms, their design, their size are determining factors, but not only. Integrating universal quality concepts into the heart of the operation of your Mobile Applications may seem a little abstract but this is both possible and fundamental. The architecture and organization of your Mobile Mobile App must be designed according to the main quality principles that are at the heart of all management and certification systems. PDCA, ISHIKAWA, Bird Pyramid, Reason Model, Pareto Law, 5S, Bow Ties are all concepts that can be integrated into the same Mobile Application. These concepts will allow the implementation of a continuous improvement strategy, at the pace of each user. A Mobile App well structured around these concepts will “do the job” alone. This job hitherto depended on a Prevent, a Manager or a natural person, certainly involved, but who did not have the same penetration force as a Mobile App. The integration of these qualitative concepts goes hand in hand with another way to design your App, the Apps Generator. Today, the time is no longer an App coded specifically for a project, a job, a problem. Time is up to the generation of custom mobile apps, on the fly … Platforms exist, they offer the faculty, by simple configuration, to build as many Mobile Applications as necessary. These platforms, shared, offer a growing base of features, at the pace of the improvements developed for each client. Accessible anywhere in the world and secure, they guarantee the partitioning and security of your data. The performance and Operational Excellence of your industrial projects today comes from your ability to offer a package tailored to each subsidiary of the Group, a set of Apps tailored for each project of the subsidiary, an App, one or more modules dedicated to each operator and optimized according to the level of qualification of each user (worker or manager). It’s precision, adaptability and quality that will boost the performance of your projects and make your interventions more reliable. Pierre Fourcade CEO – Safenergy Systems – Industrial Mobile Apps

A NEW GENERATION OF DATA! THE FIELD DATA
Field operations monitoring . In harmony with its time, Epic intends to exploit the “Big Data” potential, data accessible through new technologies. Imagine that you are financing a school in Vietnam. You can find out how many children went to class this morning, and how many school books were purchased yesterday. If it is a well in India or Ethiopia, you will know how many liters of water were drawn. By using GPS, webcams, sensors, you can visualize a donation and understand its impact immediately. Today, we don’t even need computers for that, mobile phones are everywhere and tablets cost $ 30. As with my other companies, it’s all about timing. “We have access to a whole series of data that did not exist five or even two years ago. “ Pierre Fourcade CEO – Safenergy Systems – Industrial Mobile Apps
