Return to Scene - R2S
R2S is a powerful asset integrity and management solution. Using
unique technology, the software produces high quality 360˚
spherical images which create a walk-through environment for the
user. This allows a quick assessment of an area or equipment. The
approach is currently used by the oil and gas industry, maritime
and commercial sectors.
R2S had been used within the forensic sector for approximately
five years when the firm made the decision to expand into the oil
and gas sector, prompting a need to enhance the software.
In addition to entering a new sector, version 1.3 could only be
used with one particular type of camera which was restrictive as it

The size and complexity of the project made it difficult for R2S

creating a desirable product in v2.1. This has allowed Return to
Scene to make the all-important step into the oil and gas industry
- a natural decision as the software can document entire offshore
installations prior to refurbishment. This allows engineers to
examine a site remotely, saving a great deal of time and money.
The upgrade brought the security and confidence Return to Scene
needed to build what their customers wanted and then progress the
product. It has also enabled the firm to expand internationally
with all of the limitations from the previous version now

- Increased stability
- Faster processing and user experience
- Increased functionality, offering added value to clients
- More aesthetically pleasing

was a breath of fresh air. You need luck in business and meeting

Mike continues, "Their people were a big factor in us achieving
increased capabilities - whatever we needed Codify had a realistic
can-do attitude. Codify has offered additional advice and
assistance rather than just building what was dictated.
"We believe it would have cost us two to three times more to
