The information exchange platform for the chemical industry

Sharecat is the catalyst that enables the Digital Data Chain Consortium initiative.

Collaborate through technology

During design, construction or operation – owner-operators in asset-intensive industries have specific information requirements their EPC contractors and suppliers must meet.

But there are many owner-operators, making specific demands for the same types and sources of information – to largely the same EPC contractors and suppliers – creating an inefficient web of information.

Whether a specific asset, piece of equipment or company of any size – Sharecat’s platform takes account of individual requirements while streamlining collaboration with partners, contractors, customers and suppliers.

For specific use cases 

As a single source of truth for technical product data to be used across assets, projects, teams and companies

This is how you can use Sharecat with Master Product Information

Collaboratively create, access and maintain equipment information, both custom and generic, linked to specific equipment in specific assets.

This is how you can use Sharecat with Equipment Lifecycle Information

The challenges we’re addressing

Reuse what you have already.

On average 60% of equipment information is standard, generic, reusable, and possible to share. Our platform tells you when you have information already to save time, and lets you add to and access a common source of product information together with others.

To use, manage and modify.

Differentiate and handle information linked to different objects so you can find, track, maintain and use data across the equipment life cycle.

Remove errors & reduce risk.

A central data environment built for creating high quality information. Automated processes and verification with intelligent commenting tools for streamlined reviews. See status and track the history to fix and prevent potential errors and their source.

Ensure they are met.

What do I need? When do I need it? And who needs it? Define, generate and link requirements to project phase, contracts and purchase orders, equipment type, tag numbers, suppliers and more.

Be more competitive.

Focus on the real work, let technology handle the heavy lifting. Intelligent automation to reduce work, enforce processes, check quality and remove human error.
