SkyBase & PatchMap … keeping the information current so you don’t need to!
And here is some tongue in cheek of why SkyBase and PatchMap exist at all … as you can see the field staff need all the help you can give them … and if you think that this never happens in your organisation … well, dream on!
“To the business and staff of Skybase Solutions,You and your Products have saved time money and a lot of potential anguish within our organization. (more…)
“I just wanted to say a few things about Map Buddy and AgMap, the program we use with it.(more…)
Here's one from 2011:“We performed a rig move using the tool to get a sense of its business value,” said Len Hudema, Procurement lead. “The results were very favorable — we saved more than $90,000 on a single move. The technology produced a direct route from point A to B using oilfield roads we would otherwise not have been aware of.”The team mapped out the route and then consulted with the Surface Land and Construction department to ensure that all required road agreements were in place. The approved route was then sent as a GPS downloadable file to the transportation company. It included detailed turn-by-turn directions to get the equipment and the crew to the job site — no photocopies or handwritten directions and no lost crew. (more…)
“"Thank you sir for making and providing such a fine product.The in-house software that most of my coworkers use doesn't hold a candle to the PatchMap software's superior ease of use, routing capabilities and accuracy.I really appreciate things like knowing where the kilometre markers are along major roads and the radio frequencies of a road, in case I miss the billboard sign. I feel like I've been so spoiled using PatchMap that I don't know what I would do if I ever lost it.(more…)
“Who says you have to be young to use PatchMap?Harry has been using PatchMap for many years already."I've send quite a few guys here ... one engineer couldn't believe that I would know that we were at an orphan well."
“"Our Service technicians prefer the Patchmap software for searching LSD’s versus competitive products. (more…)
“Map Buddy seems to be a more user friendly experience.I find it easier to create routes using waypoints as the map allows you to scroll around while you have selected the waypoint tool. The turn by turn directions are in a much better format and easier to follow. I have found it easier to create routes to a site as when you drop a waypoint it gives it a number by default as opposed to Mapsource which gave a physical address.(more…)
“After a friend borrowed my Garmin Nuvi 40 with the PatchMap software, he saved himself 1580 kilometers of driving within 3 days, by taking the back roads from Fort St John BC to the Chinn Inn at kilometer 160 on the Chinchaga Forestry Service road. It saved him over 8 hours of driving each of those three days.After getting done those trips, he realized the benefit and now has his own Garmin with PatchMap! With all the twists and turns on that route, he was amazed just how accurate PatchMap is, and how easy it is to use.
“Darral Campbell has been using PatchMap since 2009 and has had it in his dash mounted navigation Kenwood system for over a year."PatchMap is great! I've been working south of Dawson Creek lately and I didn't know that area well; all the roads and names and everything were in there. The road names don't make any sense compared to Alberta so it saved me many times."
"We set our sales team up with PatchMap and saw an increase in numbers within a few weeks. Our staff can spend their time making a sale rather than pulling out their hair figuring out how to find the client. It was a no brainer for us."
“"The PatchMap system has lots of information on it. The well site information is very helpful when you want to see what the status of the well is. The direction the well bore is drilled and the approximate length.""The office staff have been very helpful. They will take the time to explain over the phone or if you stop by their office."
I feel completely lost without my PatchMap. I don't even bother with paper maps anymore. A huge time-saver.
“I have been using your Agmap product for many years in my aerial crop spraying operation.I put the GPS in off road mode and enter the farmers LLD and it takes me straight to the Center of the desired field.I have become so confident with it that I never open a map while flying.
