*Portal is an information management tool that gathers and sorts multiple streams of asset data in to one simple and easy to use platform. The online, mobile solution, lets users view key project information at a glance, anywhere there is an internet signal. Streamlining project knowledge, such as operational reporting, site reporting, site access, work control, and health and safety management, Portal also provides a GIS mapping service and data storage and management. Thus reducing time spent gathering and collating information from a variety of sources, and enabling users to focus on higher value issues.
Ted Leeming, Managing Director at Natural Power, said: “We have used our 20 plus years of experience in gathering and interpreting information to develop this ground-breaking technology that will help our customers to optimize the success of their operations. Portal will offer users greater control by allowing them to plan more effectively, ultimately maximizing the potential from renewable energy and infrastructure projects.
“The development and launch of Portal is instrumental in our long term strategy to help our clients in achieving their operational efficiency and competitiveness objectives to ensure that low carbon energy technologies can compete in the wider energy market.”
