Energy Corporation Uses Smartphones as Virtual Offices

Case Study: Chesapeake Energy Corporation

The Mission: 

Employees working in field offices should be reachable (e.g. at Drilling Points), enabling them to directly receive documents such as legal permits.

The Solution: 

Employees in field offices can use nearly all traditional desktop features with the BlackBerry smartphone and print documents on Wi-Fi and Bluetooth printers. They are always reachable and have access to the latest information.

The Result: 

A reliable connection to the Wi-Fi network increases productivity of employees located in field offices. Additionally, travel times and costs are reduced as important documents can be sent directly to external sites by fax. Shuttling between the office and production areas is rendered unnecessary.
