It’s hard to believe that half of 2019 has already flown by, it was great last quarter to touch base and help so many clients globally at a variety of events. The Petrosys 2019 Trade Show World Tour allowed us the opportunity to catch up personally with many of you and we plan to continue this strong focus on client interaction and connectivity with the upcoming Petrosys Global User Events.

We know and understand that helping clients to get more from their Petrosys investment by continually improving workflows and listening to user feedback is vital and as such we are holding user group events in Perth, Adelaide, London, Houston, and Calgary over the next few months. These provide you with; insight into what’s new in Petrosys PRO as our 2019.2 release will be out very shortly; provide opportunities to learn from your peers in how they apply our software in their workflows, and lets you join the discussion into how the software development roadmaps and improvements should be shaped. We strongly encourage you to attend. Each of the events is an investment of time that we are certain will deliver your organisation meaningful value. Click here to register.

I’m was pleased last month to announce a new partnership between Petrosys and PetroCubic WorkSpaces, for the first time making Petrosys PRO available on a per-use basis via their cloud-hosted service.  Users are able to easily access Petrosys PRO within a data processing environment scaled to the needs of their project, whether it’s just a couple of maps to round off a prospect review, or a major field study leveraging an international team of experts. I am confident this will add value to consulting and small-medium enterprises who wish to focus more on geoscience and less on day-to-day IT. Click here to learn more.
