Tanks-A-Lot Leverages Geoforce to Track Global Oilfield Rental Fleet
Tanks-A-Lot has leveraged the Geoforce asset tracking and management solution to enhance operating efficiency and provide valuable "added value" benefits to its customers. Louisiana-based Tanks-A-Lot is using the technology to deliver best-in-class service to some of the world's largest oil and gas operators. The Geoforce deployment is also helping the company to manage expansion beyond its core Gulf of Mexico market to offer rental equipment and services in Alaska and Trinidad.
Locating and managing millions of dollars worth of equipment in the oilfield has always been a challenge. It's a 24/7 operation with valuable assets constantly in motion across drilling rigs, platforms, shore bases, marine vessels, and trucks. Prior to Geoforce, inventory was typically managed manually and operations personnel were forced to make educated guesses concerning the specific locations of assets. Now, utilizing Geoforce's GPS tracking devices and powerful web-based asset management platform, Tanks-A-Lot is able to locate equipment worldwide with the click of a mouse.
Perhaps more importantly, customers of Tanks-A-Lot are able to access this information and manage equipment online as well. "Our mission at Tanks-A-Lot is to provide world-class equipment and service to the oil and gas industry," said AJ Cannata, President, Tanks-A-Lot, Inc. "We have always been quick to innovate and incorporate new technologies and processes that enable us to best serve our customers. The Geoforce system streamlines an otherwise cumbersome process and enables us to provide our customers with visibility and intelligence into their assets, which is very valuable to their operations."
"Prior to deploying the Geoforce system to automate the process of asset tracking and management processes, we were forced to manually track our equipment in the field, which wasn't sustainable, particularly as we expanded into new geographies," said Joey Cannata, Operations Manager, Tanks-A-Lot, Inc. "We needed a solution that could simultaneously help us manage our growth into global markets reaching from Alaska to Africa and achieve internal operational efficiencies. Geoforce has helped us achieve these objectives."
