In response to the industry safety and profitability concerns caused by the loss of experienced employees as the baby-boom generation reaches retirement age, Houston-based Merrick has created a software solution that ensures that the information and knowledge does not leave the company with the baby boomers, but stays on, helping companies ease the pain of this transition.
“It would be fantastic if your valued employees could work forever,” said Shawn Gutierrez, VIO product manager at Merrick. “We all know that’s not possible, but at least we can ensure that the information and knowledge lives on, in a format that can be easily absorbed by the younger generation.”
Merrick’s solution, RIO, not only ensures you have all the relevant information in one place, it cleanses it, and brings it to a workable format to facilitate the transfer of knowledge from one generation of engineers and geologists to another. This opens up the data to new and eager engineers and geologist for faster analysis and identification of development/exploitation opportunities rather than searching for and compiling data.
Headquartered in Houston, Merrick provides production management and accounting, and reservoir information software to the oil and gas industry. For 20 years Merrick has partnered with exploration and production companies worldwide, to provide energy professionals and companies with the data they need to manage their production, assets, and operations, daily and monthly, through comprehensive and innovative offerings.
