By CIOReview | Tuesday, October 23, 2018

Total, leading international oil, and the gas firm, has extended its contract with innovative software business Arnlea till the end of 2022. The value of the contract, with Total’s SCOT (supply chain & operations tracking) project, is approximately $5.23 million.

The new agreement states that Total will continue to deploy Arnlea’s technical mobile software solution Intrinsix MM (materials management), which is already being used by many operators across the international energy regions.

Intrinsix MM is used by Total for inventory and logistics across operations in the UK, Abu Dhabi, Angola, Gabon, and Nigeria. The Intrinsix product involves the use of technology – including handheld devices to enable the receipt, management and relocation of inventory, the visibility and traceability of equipment in logistics activities and the history and condition of assets.

The managing director at Arnlea, Allan Merritt said, “We’re delighted to have secured another long-term contract with Total for a software product that is proven to have efficiency benefits in terms of cost and time.”

Intrinsix has adopted mobile industrial technology such as IIoT (industrial internet of things), RFID (radio-frequency identification), barcodes, tablets and smartphones to digitally transform customer services. The product—as with other Arnlea solutions—can operate standalone or can also be integrated with a customer’s corporate systems.

Arnlea fundamentally works with customers in the oil and gas industry, but its products are used in other sectors, like pharmaceutical, food and drink. Arnlea products have been deployed in more than 50 different locations nationwide.

One of its most successful products is Intrinsix EX as it is recognized as a leader in the oil and gas industry for inspection and maintenance work. The product plays a crucial role in helping organizations to comply with ATEX industry regulations and IEC 60079 standards as part of the management of hazardous areas and equipment. Arnlea has specific modules of Intrinsix for inspection and maintenance beyond dangerous environments.
