We’re just getting started: Our year in review

Mobile Epiphany is an established enterprise-class mobile software company in its 11th year of business. Its mobile platform technology is used to rapidly create cost-effective mobile apps to solve any business process challenge across any industry, regardless of complexity. Initially, Mobile Epiphany succeeded in creating many custom mobile applications for specific business challenges on a project by project basis. While Mobile Epiphany still takes on custom projects regularly, these new, standardized apps fall under our brand “Krinkle”, which we have been expanding upon ever since. This last year, we’ve been particularly busy adding new and innovative capabilities to the next generation of our existing apps while also adding new apps to our suite of “purpose-specific” Krinkle solutions.

 

 

For the oil and gas industry, Krinkle launched two new mobile software solutions this last year. Krinkle began servicing the oil and gas industry four years ago with the launch of its premier LDAR tracking software, Krinkle LDAR Tracker®. Over these last four years, we’ve gained a great deal of expertise in the LDAR process and we further innovated new ways where Krinkle LDAR Tracker® could improve. One of the biggest challenges our clients faced was coordinating the communication between multiple different subcontractors (such as inspectors, repairmen, verifiers, etc.) working on the same well sites, compressor stations, etc. This insight led us to develop Krinkle LDAR Tracker Pro®, an advanced version of our original LDAR compliance software. The Pro version adds a series of new and innovative features including its premier feature - seamless work order sharing.

The “Shared Work Order” system automatically pushes the initial work order forward to all the subsequent users who need it (the initial inspector, then repair people, then verifiers, etc.), simply by detecting when the previous step is complete. This eliminates the need for the project managers to engage in endless phone calls, coordination meetings, excel files and forgotten or lost next steps. Krinkle LDAR Tracker Pro® showcased this innovative new feature at the 2019 Oil and Gas Environmental Conference (OGENV 2019). Krinkle's Sr. Business Analyst, Dr. Glenn Kletzky, gave a presentation at the event alongside Vertex Resource Services’ VP of US Operations, Mr. Dhugal Hanton. The presentation focused on how deploying LDAR Tracker Pro® resulted in Vertex gaining a higher level of compliance and situational awareness which has enabled them to better serve their clients.

 

 

Mobile Epiphany’s software has been used to inspect close to 1,000,000 fire doors for the fire and life safety industry over the last four years. Mobile Epiphany has been working with subject matter experts in the fire door service industry for years to create its comprehensive (inspections, estimates to repair, repairs performed, etc.) application. In 2019, we officially launched the standardized version of our fire door inspection software, Krinkle Fire Door®. The mobile app guides inspectors to even more easily adhere to NFPA standards, speeds up work and automates fire door reporting. Krinkle has taken the mobile app beyond traditional fire door inspection software, to a complete mobile and back-office solution that drives your business.

 

 

Over the last 3 years, Krinkle Debris Tracker® has reconciled disaster data required by FEMA in multiple states and counties. From natural disasters including hurricanes Maria, Irma and Harvey, as well as the Northern and Southern California wildfires, Krinkle Debris Tracker®’s performance, was unrivaled. In 2019, Krinkle Debris Tracker® impressed attendees at the 33rd annual Governor's Hurricane Conference in Florida with its 4th year of updates and increased capabilities. Emergency management professionals and those involved in preparedness, planning, response and recovery at all levels of the government, industry, and private interest gathered to exchange ideas and see the latest and greatest advancements in emergency response. Krinkle presented our powerful disaster management software solutions - Krinkle Debris Tracker® and Krinkle Damage Tracker® - both showcased during live demonstrations, presented by Dr. Glenn Kletzky. The two solutions attracted the interest of more than 50 organizations.

 

 

Krinkle Rebuild Tracker® is a proven solution for heavy equipment dealers looking to track their major components during the rebuild process. The mobile app has been successfully deployed internationally, from the United States to Africa, the Middle East and beyond. This established success led Krinkle to attend the Western Region Meeting for CAT dealers and their IT people (WRIT 2019 in Las Vegas). The mobile app had already proven itself in component rebuild centers internationally as it has been in use at the Cashman and Mantrac Caterpillar rebuild centers for the last two years. This was highlighted in a presentation given by Dr. Glenn Kletzky. His presentation also focused on how what Krinkle Rebuild Tracker® did for CAT’s dealers could be done for any heavy equipment manufacturer, regardless of the brand, facility size, or language spoken by its users.

Krinkle Rebuild Tracker® also fully integrated with Modern® this last year. Modern® is a sales department and customer communications text messaging system popular among many of the CAT Dealers that Krinkle works with. Krinkle Rebuild Tracker®’s integration effort with Modern® highlights Krinkle’s commitment to heavy equipment dealers, software vendors and the ecosystem as a whole. In 2020, we plan on launching a new hose manufacturing tracking mobile application that has been successfully deployed in multiple locations across Mantrac’s dealerships.

After a successful year of developing new Krinkle apps, updating existing software, speaking at trade shows and integrating with other software, Krinkle has big plans for 2020. Going forward, Krinkle plans to continue improving the business processes and relationships we made in 2019, while simultaneously launching new products to solve business challenges for other industries.

Krinkle LDAR Tracker Pro® Unveiled at OGENV 2019

Krinkle, LLC. formally presented and exhibited their LDAR Tracker Pro® mobile app and suite of reporting tools earlier this month at the 2019 Oil & Gas Environmental Conference (OGENV). LDAR Tracker Pro® is Krinkle’s highly scalable, enterprise-class version of its LDAR tracking and compliance software. The pro version of the software introduces an array of state-of-the-art features, including Krinkle’s innovative, fully automated work order sharing (we call it “Shared Work Orders”). Shared Work Orders ensure consistent workflow in the field, guides its users to timely completion of their 0000a and state regulatory work and drives thorough LDAR compliance. Manual communications such as the typical back-and-forth emails and phone calls required to keep the LDAR team moving are almost completely eliminated. Time and money are saved while compliance is achieved with significantly less effort.

The “Shared Work Order” system automatically pushes the initial work order forward to all the subsequent users who need it (inspectors, repair techs, then verifiers, etc.), simply by detecting when the previous worker’s steps are complete. This enables LDAR companies to eliminate time-consuming spreadsheets, emails, and phone calls, while automatically driving the “next step” forward. Work never falls through the cracks, drastically increasing efficiency and ensuring a large return on investment.

Krinkle’s report management tool contains all the reports (rolling leak logs, component leak logs, remaining leaks, delays of repairs, etc.) needed to track all your sites, leaks, repairs, verifications and delays of repair (DORs). The system provides LDAR technicians with all the smart forms and guided workflows necessary to collect actionable data, simplify their work and facilitate regulatory compliance.

During the conference, oil & gas companies were able to see Krinkle LDAR Tracker Pro® first-hand. Krinkle’s team demonstrated how Krinkle LDAR Tracker Pro® guides leak inspectors, repair techs, and verifiers through the entire LDAR process and enable them to maintain all their critical records with ease. Attendees were able to easily understand LDAR Tracker Pro®’s reports and see for themselves the mobile app’s ability to streamline their LDAR processes and record-keeping (from well sites, compressor stations, central facilities, etc.).

Vertex Resource Group, an international oil field services company with over 3000 employees in both Canada and the US, presented the details of their field success as a result of using LDAR Tracker Pro®. Vertex presented the stark difference between the burden of managing large and highly scalable LDAR programs prior to using LDAR Tracker Pro® and the ease afterwards. All aspects of the data collection, uniformity, worker guidance and client reporting were drastically simplified. Vertex was able to rapidly deliver to its customers the data they wanted and the way they wanted it. Vertex’s Vice President of US operations, Mr. Dhugal Hanton, spoke alongside Krinkle’s Senior Business Analyst, Dr. Glenn Kletzky, about how Krinkle LDAR Tracker Pro® has modernized Vertex’s air compliance services.

“Initially, we had considered developing our own software in house, but we also understood the potential years of time and millions of dollars such a risky effort might entail. After considerable market research, we realized that Krinkle’s software was enterprise-level and field-proven. It was already “out-of-the-box” ready to easily train and deploy. It quickly and cost-effectively serviced our LDAR program’s needs,” stated Mr. Hanton.

Krinkle LDAR Tracker Pro® reduces the time, cost and effort to secure auditable compliance in your 0000a and state regulation program. If you would like to receive further information about Krinkle LDAR Tracker Pro®, please schedule a free live demonstration by visiting LDAR Tracker Pro®.

Announcing Krinkle's Premium LDAR Compliance Software: LDAR Tracker Pro®

LDAR Tracker Pro®, Krinkle’s newest version of its premier LDAR tracking software and reporting system, reduces the time, cost and effort to secure auditable compliance in your 0000a and state regulation program. Not only is it easy to learn, but it also drives your workforce (in house or sub-contractors!) to collect the right data and stay on schedule. It comes standard with many critical and useful reports like the EPA required report, a report showing the status of all leaks and many more, ensuring you are always in compliance and audit-ready.

Krinkle’s LDAR Tracker Pro® is a mobile app and back-office suite of tools that uses a radically improved and simplified approach to these complex and mandatory regulations. The original version was introduced to the market 4 years ago and our pro version takes it to the next level, by enabling seamless work order sharing.

Krinkle LDAR Tracker Pro®’s state of the art approach (Shared Work Orders) allows for work orders to be assigned directly to an LDAR Inspector’s mobile device as an initiating step. The “Shared Work Order” system automatically pushes the initial work order forward to all the subsequent users who need it (repair people, then verifiers, etc.), simply by detecting when the previous step is complete. No more phone calls, coordination meetings, excel files and forgotten or lost next steps. The chain-link of “next step” responsibility remains unbroken and always visible to the workers and their managers alike. This level of data awareness via reports, dashboard views and the mobile app itself extend to client executives as well, who must decide how to handle leaks recommended for “Delay of Repair”.

The mobile app only shows each individual user the work orders assigned to them. With a simple touch, the app then guides each of its users, step by step, through their respective workflow and only asks for information that is relevant to their current role (inspector, repair tech, etc.). Return on investment, ease of training, and ease of use cannot be overstated.

The PC (back-office) portion of the system is for LDAR program managers. It lets them set up months and even years of future LDAR work orders very quickly. From that point forward, they only need to assign them to their employees by selecting their names from a list. The system does the rest!

Once the system is in use, reports (such as the required EPA report, outstanding leaks reports, DOR list reports and many more) can be run at any time. They can even be scheduled to run daily and show up in your email automatically if you want! If management wants to have additional reports, custom dashboard views, and/or custom notifications, the system allows for these things to be quickly configured.
