  • Epsis announces first contract with Petronas in Malaysia

    Of the major oil producers world wide, Petronas is renowned for being among the leaders within operational excellence. Now they are moving another step forward, and plan to further digitalize their Integrated Operations by utilizing Epsis TeamBox.

    Specifically, Epsis TeamBox will orchestrate their many sources of applications, documents and systems, to make sure that the right information is shown to the right person or team at the right time. Petronas’ headline of the project is “Implementation Of Collaboration Interface Tool For Operational Excellence”, and Epsis TeamBox will be the control system for collaboration. A system of accessing and using distributed information was exactly what they needed. The Epsis TeamBox platform solution will provide Petronas with the digital framework for implementing repeatable processes and supporting decisions with the complete context of available operational information.

    Epsis’ Malaysian partner Turcomp made significant contributions in working with Epsis and Petronas to achieve this contract award. Having a local presence in Malaysia is absolutely crucial, and Turcomp has proven to be the an excellent partner to represent Epsis in Malaysia.
    The team of Turcomp and Epsis are committed to helping Petronas achieve their goal for this project.

  • New Release of Epsis TeamBox

    Epsis’ CTO Henrik W. Larsen has always had a vision for TeamBox:

    “It should be easier to use common applications together with TeamBox than without, in order to realize the full value potential in your technology investments.”

    In the new release, this is now close to becoming a reality. Valuable feedback from our customers has guided us toward simplification of some of their more sophisticated use cases.
    Some examples are:

    1. Users can now open Excel workbooks to a specific worksheet, or even to a specific cell in a worksheet
    2. Another application that is frequently used in TeamBox Info Modules  is SAP, which can now be opened to a specific transaction to reduce the effort required to view and interact with relevant data
    3. We have also simplified the use of advanced controls available in Skype and Adobe Acrobat Reader as a part of our ‘advanced simplification’ theme in this release

    This additional functionality gives Info Module designers more control on how information is displayed. Bridging the gap between description of, and execution of, activities through TeamBox Info Modules will enable the whole organisation to adhere to best practises and reduce the time required to make better decisions.

    The creation of Info Displays that will provide required information to the right people at the right time has never been easier.

    The TeamBox Composer interface can now be used to pull together Info Modules using a simple Drag & Drop. The functionality has been enriched with new functionality, such as:

    1. Drag- and- drop functionality for easy re-use of Info Displays and Info Elements
    2. Info Elements Templates will enable everyone in the organization to utilize all the hidden “expert functionality” in the applications already in use
    3. Environment and layouts as building blocks for user-friendly and flexible display management with respect to the visualisation of the info requirements

    As a result, we believe the new version of Epsis TeamBox provide a user interface where previous expert functionality is made available and easy to use for the end-users.
