The Benefits of Software as a Service

Back when software was distributed on physical media like music or movies, there were more than a
few challenges to work out. It took a while for software to load and it needed to work right out of the
box. If your programs didn’t work right away, and you didn’t have coding knowledge, fixing it would be
difficult. You’d be forced to wait for a new version to be released, on another set of CDs, and those
might have new problems of their own. Also, if the software didn’t have some necessary features, you’d
have to wait again for a new version, hoping that it’d come with all of the bells and whistles you wanted.

Oil and Gas software, for these reasons, was often internally developed. In heavy industries such as
upstream Oil and Gas, major or even minor program errors are not acceptable. Furthermore, the
specific needs for Oil and Gas scheduling are too particular to wait on 3rd party software to release new
CDs every other year. Asset management software built by the company could fit the exact needs of the
company right away.

The needs for Oil and Gas scheduling software make this older model obsolete. New issues with
scheduling and well delivery can happen every day, and the current in-house solution may not be able to
accommodate them. These in-house solutions are now quite old and many of them haven’t seen
updates in some time. They’ve worked so far, but upgrades and improvements will be slow, if they
happen at all, since the original developers may or may not still be in the building. Your Oil and Gas
scheduling software needs to be quick on the uptake and frequently updated with new features and
solutions to fit your ongoing business needs. If there are any issues or problems, they need to be fixed
right away.

Infrequent updates are no longer a problem with our modern, ubiquitous internet. This new world has
enabled a “software as a service” (SAAS) model. SAAS treats software as a live, frequently updated
service rather than a static product. Amazon sends millions of updates a year to their various software
packages; why not have this in Oil and Gas? With all of the variables, changes, updates and difficulties
with Oil and Gas scheduling, the ability to rework your software on the fly, with minimal issues, is
invaluable.

Generwell is built and delivered on a SAAS model. Your specific and changing needs will be met by Oil
and Gas scheduling software that can update and upgrade when necessary. Our licensing gives you
access to constant updates to ensure Generwell not only works without errors, but we can also adapt
the software to meet your ever-changing needs. These are the benefits of frequently updated programs,
and Generwell can bring these benefits to bear.
