RIMDrill Reporter

RIMDrill Reporter is a companion application to RIMDrill designed to streamline the daily report distribution process. Daily Reports can be configured for automatic distribution to e-mail recipients including special formats for smartphone and Blackberry users, to any printer on the network, or published to a folder on the network.

The goal is to improve the efficiency of operations support personnel who spend a lot of time distributing daily report data to others, both inside and outside the company. RIMDrill Reporter relieves personnel from this tedious, repetitive and redundant task which can require several hours of effort each day. Reports can be delivered to users in a more timely fashion. Once configured the application can run unattended on a 24/7 basis providing distributions on weekends and holidays

RIMDrill Reporter works by monitoring the RIMDrill database for incoming report data. Once a new report is received the application checks the configuration list for instructions on how to handle the report and then performs the scheduled distribution task in the designated time frame. The design incorporates the ability to handle the needs of companies with international operations where rigs can be working in many different time zones.
