FYI, this story is more than a year old

RedEye Apps, the Queensland-founded digital technology company, has integrated with Microsoft to bring safety and efficiency improvements to critical assets and infrastructure to organisations around the globe.

Asset owners and critical infrastructure operators from the power, water, government, natural resources and renewable energy industries will now be able to manage engineering documentation and execute safer maintenance work with one single source of data truth through RedEye's integration to Microsoft 365, the company states.

Enabled by this new interoperability, all asset documentation (such as instructions, permits, manuals, procedures and test sheets), can now be stored, accessed, and edited in Microsoft 365 from within the RedEye platform.

According to the company, now more than ever making important asset, operational and project information easier to access, use, update and manage by staff and contractors will ensure the critical services provided by these organisations are not disrupted.

With the Microsoft 365 integration, a field worker sent to work on an asset can now not only access the latest version of the engineering drawings, 3D models and data with certainty, and also view and edit any associated manuals, configuration guides and permits in Microsoft 365 from the same location.

The integration with Microsoft will further enhance an organisation's ability to rely on a single source of truth for its asset and critical infrastructure information to drive significant resource savings and improve safe work practices.

RedEye chief technology officer Jenny Johnson says the Microsoft 365 integration will drive significant efficiencies across key industries for both national and international markets.

Johnson says, “Across the globe, our clients rely on the ability to access their asset drawings and artefacts from the RedEye platform. It's how they control version accuracy and execute safe and efficient maintenance work.

“We expect this will shave more than 30% off the time spent looking for asset documentation, especially in the field, because everything is now in one spot and accessible from anywhere."

Microsoft 365 director for product marketing, Daniel Canning, says, “Integrating RedEye with Microsoft 365 brings functionality that will shape a new wave of change within a number of key industries.

“Customers can take advantage of RedEye solutions to manage asset and engineering data within Microsoft 365.

RedEye CEO and co-founder Wayne Gerard says, “The integration with Microsoft is just one example of how the company is helping clients improve the way they work, increasing safety, efficiency and collaboration.

“In 2020 we illustrated our strength very clearly - helping our clients make evidence-based decisions with data in their hands when they need it most - and we are building on that strength with the Microsoft integration to provide increased functionality from the same central point for our clients.

Gerard says, “I don't think anyone can say with certainty what 2021 will bring in terms of challenges, but one thing remains certain and that's our commitment to keeping the world's critical infrastructure running.
