EZOPS®
By Operators, for Operators

Enough was enough. 13 excel sheets, 5 different online programs, countless sheets of paper, Text messages, emails and driving down shitty roads to find out WTF was happening in my areas. Why the F*%$ is there not a better system for this? I’m managing tens of millions of dollars in expenses producing 100’s of millions of O&G and I’m F*#%’n near communicating in smoke signals compared to other streamlined industries. Something needs to change…- This was 2015 (longest days of my F*^# life)

The industry is changing, and I knew it. All sorts of digital “Solutions” were popping up. Mainly created by a programmer in an office somewhere who hadn’t experienced freezing his ass off in the field. These applications were brutal to use and only made life more complicated and frustrating.

This is why we created EZOPS®, a user-friendly location-based communication platform.
Over the years we tweaked and tuned it to be as easy to use as an iPhone. Everything, All in one place connecting our team and no cell service required. Built by “us” for “us”.
No more F*%$ing paper.
