An Edinburgh-based geologist has developed an innovative cloud platform.
Jamie Birse-Steward says it will replace what he called “outdated IT systems” used by companies in the oil and gas industries.
His platform is designed to cut costs and increase productivity.
And the 33-year-old founder of Aeon Geoscience Systems has been working on his software for more than two years.
The Aberdeen University, Bachelor of Science (BSc), graduate, has received support from Business Gateway Edinburgh who helped him to secure an Innovation Support Grant.
His platform collates and links multiple different data types automatically, integrating everything from drilling data and maps to images and documents.
This previously required a range of different software and significant time to source and review.
Jamie said: “Our software package is designed to make it easier for industry personnel to find data in one place resulting in a reduction of cost for companies in the oil and gas sector who currently use outdated systems and time is wasted sourcing information in various different places.
“The feedback we’ve had has been absolutely incredible.”
Susan Harkins, head of Business Gateway Edinburgh, said: “Jamie is a great example of someone with incredible talent, vision and determination to develop a much-needed solution for companies to be more efficient and profitable using cutting-edge technology.”
