Fixing “the great data disconnect”, using technology as a tool

Technology as a tool for collaboration

Owner-operators in asset-intensive industries have specific information requirements linked to their engineering and procurement processes which often vary from asset to asset.

Whether in design, construction or operation, EPC contractors and suppliers must provide their information in accordance with these specific needs.

But there are many owner-operators, across industries, making the same demands in parallel to largely the same pool of EPC contractors and suppliers.

Each are different in their requirements and processes for the same types and sources of information, inevitably leading to a chaotic and inefficient web of information.

Sharecat uses technology to make collaboration with partners, contractors, customers and suppliers possible, taking account of individual requirements.

Whether a specific asset, piece of equipment or company of any size - it's not the information but what we do with it that makes the difference for our customers.

Experts in information, data and the work processes linked to it

The Information Twin Approach

The Information Twin is Sharecat's approach for handling technical information and processes from individual parts all the way up to a complete asset. Each individual part, equipment item, system and asset has it's associated information twin that is the combination of all forms of technical information related to it.

It is built in the project phase and used and maintained in the operations phase. Depending on your focus and role it can be just a few pieces of information up to tens of thousands of items of data. No matter the scale, it is the digital foundation that unlocks productivity and enables other systems.

Document Centric

Humans love documents, and so do we. An information twin at the simplest level is documentation, but, a document-only approach is 100% human focused which can restrict productivity.

Our team knows how best to optimise your work processes for handling and working with documents of all types, and if you're ready we can help guide you to think in new ways to evolve.

Become Object Centric - Digital Transformation

Objects are the key to digital transformation. A document can be an object but so can an individual piece of information.

Our platform is designed to help evolve your organisation to become object centric, without giving up documents and changing the way you work today.

Data models, structures & standards

Information twins require a solid foundation, whether it is as simple as a document list or a comprehensive reference data library based on international standards such as CFIHOS.

We understand the challenges and can implement the data model that fits best for you or simply provide guidance.

Existing & New Information

Our platform can build your information twin, whether a project in execution or a 30 year old asset in operation, to give you control and insight.

With our range of subject matter experts available for guidance.

Unlock the potential of your other systems

A Sharecat information twin is the foundation for getting your other systems to shine.

ERP software, design & engineering tools, digital twins, inventory software, and more - we do the hard work so they can look good.

Open the door to a holistic approach to technical data and information

Asset information comes in a variety of formats, no matter the source. The usage, volume and focus varies across an asset’s life.

Developing a holistic view unlocks value that a traditional approach will never achieve.
