“The need for proper management of integrity data has never been so important as it is now,” said Bajula when asked why he agreed to become a HUVR Advisor. “HUVR provides unique data management solutions and I’m proud to be part of their advisory team, providing innovative and actionable management of inspection and maintenance data enabling owners and users the ability to be forever proactive instead of reactive to their integrity management.”

HUVRdata’s platform is a powerful-but-easy-to-use inspection data management system. Inspectors can access workflows created based on hard-won best practices across multiple industries (oil and gas, wind, solar, manufacturing, etc.). The workflows are highly configurable to meet the unique needs of a particular asset or site. HUVR aggregates data from any inspection tool and normalizes it to deliver solutions for anomaly management, reporting and analytics, repair planning, and ongoing work management. The inspection data is stored securely on the cloud for easy recall, or for integration with other systems of record. The net result is that data silos are eliminated and complex inspections are completed quicker, improving safety and the bottom line.
