Scan Systems to Release State-of-the-Art Updates to Tubular Data Systems Software

HOUSTON --(Business Wire)--

Scan Systems, a truly unique company dedicated to serving the niche markets of OCTG manufactures, processors and inspection facilities, will release a work order module and billing module for its Tubular Data Systemstm (TDS) Software. The company plans to release the modules in the first quarter of 2013.

"Our customers deserve and need the ability to track the current status and location of OCTG tubing and casing at every step of the process, from receiving into the yard, movements to a service facility and ultimately to a storage rack waiting to ship, and our current TDS software gives them that ability. With our new work order and billing modules, our customers will also have up to the minute information on the footage that has been shipped for a particular work order, what remains to be processed for that work order all the while billing for the services rendered with a few clicks of the mouse," said Scan Systems Sales and Marketing Vice President Matt Rutledge. "This unique addition to our current OCTG inventory control software is designed to truly address the complications seen on a daily basis in a very niche market that few companies have chosen to serve. With the new modules designed to complement our TDSW software product, the inventory control managers and inspection plant supervisors will be able to effectively manage the API and customer specific inspection criteria of OCTG tubing and casing fom inception to completion and all points in between."

Scan Systems consistently invests in R&D to ensure continuous module development for their industry leading software to address customer's needs as they arise. The inspection work order module and billing modules are the latest responses to these needs. The latest features include

  • A web app that allows customers to log in from anywhere to check the current status of good inventory ready for shipping to the well site
  • Real-time tracking of OCTG inventory movement and changes that have taken place
  • Track work order progress and pipe status
  • Create invoices from completed work orders
  • Create invoices for shipping and receiving transactions
  • Create shipping and receiving documentation
  • Extensive filtering and reporting capabilities
  • Availability throughout the United States and Canada

TDS, a uniquely capable program and industry standard, was originally introduced in 1994 as a DOS based inventory control system. Its main functions have been to control the inventory received into the yard, manage the movement and storage of OCTG materials, releasing the pipe for shipping, all the while keeping track of the ever changing descriptions such as the material grades, threads and connection, and color bands. Multiple dedicated programmers and developers continue to work on enhancements and complimentary software products to better serve our industry. In addition, to the development staff, Scan Systems has multiple customer service reps in house to provide assistance and support for the TDS software products online, by phone or by email.
