ROLLING MEADOWS, IL--(Marketwire -03/05/12)- Quadrant4 Systems Corporation (Q4) (OTC.BB: QFOR.OB - News) (OTCQB: QFOR.OB - News) today announced that it has launched its Oil & Gas practice with specific focus on Telemetrics.
Q4's cloud-based Telemetrics platform addresses challenges in the areas of oil tanks and storage, oil flow, and oil transportation. The functionalities include Remote Measurement i.e, the ability to measure readings remotely without physical inspection; Real-time Analytics i.e. a cloud-based dashboard for real-time analytics from a remote location; Multiple Sensors i.e, Flow and Level Sensors for a breadth of applications; and Application Diversity i.e., Measurement of flow and levels on pipelines, storage tanks and vehicles. The real-time measurement of fuel levels has huge economic value in terms of accurate payments to vendors, theft and environment losses, and potential leakage in remote and unmonitored pipelines/storage facilities.
The application uses extensive Open Source technologies that include Linux, Pentaho, Hadoop etc. and runs on an Amazon EC2 cloud platform and can be deployed on smart mobile devices that run on Android and BlackBerry operating systems.
Dhru Desai, Chairman of the Board of Q4, stated "As oil and gas prices increase, any technology and/or device that delivers either cost savings or cost avoidance is very welcome to the Oil & Gas industry. The industry typically operates unmanned oil rigs that continuously pump crude from remote wells and can't afford potential leaks that will lead to environmental disaster and huge loss of goodwill. Cloud-based monitoring from a central location will allow real-time response to such disasters and will deliver unprecedented ROI to the industry."
