Codify, the Aberdeen-based custom software specialist, has
reached a £1 million new contracts milestone for the 2012/2013
financial year with further deals in the pipeline.
The company's expertise in utilising the latest Microsoft
technologies to build secure database software systems is
increasingly in demand by companies needing rich and intuitive user
Early on in its commercial life Codify caught the eye of the oil
and gas industry. Managing Director Graeme Humphrey explains:
"Thirteen years on we're proud to say that our software is used in
companies of all sizes from small local businesses to global
corporations like Talisman, TAQA and AGR seeking a variety of
custom built line-of-business applications.
"It's our prime location and experience that has allowed us to
gain a high level of knowledge about the energy industry. A
Codify strength is our ability to build software that meet the
unique needs of each client. We help them to envisage exactly
what they require and then construct the solution
accordingly. We then back up our work with an effective
support team that is easily accessible to clients."
"Codify's contract wins are a testament to our ability to
deliver software that is right for companies across the energy
industry and beyond." Graeme adds.
One latest key on-going contract involves Talisman Sinopec Energy
UK. Codify has developed a central database application called the
Opportunity Inventory System that enables Talisman Sinopec Energy
UK operatives to view, manage and analyse opportunities related to
type, field, maturity and economic and production values.
The system includes Microsoft's PivotViewer control that provides
what Graeme describes as an "intuitive, interactive and visual
tool" for further analysing opportunities. Traffic light colours
are used to provide "at a glance" patterns and trends. This enables
the company to help determine how opportunities are performing with
respect to various criteria including production, reserves and
Another client is AGR Group, the global services and technology
company specialising in oil and gas industry solutions. AGR invited
Codify to take over the development of its software application P1
used to analyse and manage the risks and opportunities encountered
during the construction of wells.
Codify completed a technical re-write, redeveloped the engine
behind the software and added a number of new features including a
Monte-Carlo engine that increased simulation speeds 100 fold. Chris
Ferrier, Director of AGR PSS, says "P1 has been used by over 30 oil
and gas companies worldwide.
"The re-write has resulted in a more stable system that is fast,
self-contained and can be used on different platforms. The software
is solid, engineers like using it and it is becoming the standard
tool in the workplace. Codify has played a vital part in achieving
that," he adds.
Another client R2S (Return To Scene) comprises of three divisions
working in the oil and gas industry, maritime and commercial
sectors. Their software produces high quality 360 degree
spherical images to create a walk-through environment for the user
to allow a quick assessment of an area or equipment.
Such was Codify's impact in supporting R2S by stabilising its
software that their collaboration enabled this client to make the
all-important step into oil and gas. Managing Director Brian Dillon
says: "Meeting Codify was a breath of fresh air. You need luck in
business and meeting Codify and their competent team was certainly
a major stroke of luck as far as R2S is concerned."
