TODAY’S MEASUREMENT solution

ProTrend

The market-leading software for scheduling, validating, and managing Fluid Composition Data and Meter Calibrations.

Increase Accuracy — Save Time & Money — Increase Control

With over 250,000 gas meters in its management portfolio, ProTrend is North America’s leading solution to simplify fluid analysis management.

"2021 has been great! It’s our first full year of solely using the ProTrend to track, schedule and house our calibrations and analysis. Our team had spent a lot of time going through and updating and scheduling the database for 2021, and once we got the 2021 schedule cleaned up and sent out, it has been completely utilized by the field and office. We realized early this year that we had missed a calibration on a major facility last year – so I think utilizing the system got the field on board pretty fast!

Dorothy is always very quick to respond when I send her a question – and she always responds! She’s great."

How does ProTrend work?

ProTrend takes electronic data files from nearly any source and passes them through a rigorous validation process that employs client-controlled criteria.

Data is objectively validated, and those analyses or calibrations that meet predetermined criteria are made available for immediate use without human intervention.

Data that doesn’t meet the criteria are flagged and held for review by a qualified user.

ProTrend provides clients with the ability to track, schedule and completely manage the entire fluid analysis process from a single repository, regardless of the lab that performed the analysis.

Furthermore, ProTrend allows clients to easily manage the transfer of meter calibration data to information and revenue systems, which depend on fluid quality to perform accurate calculations. As a result, manual entry of key calibration data and associated keying errors are virtually eliminated.

ProTrend’s centralization of analyses ensures that all fluid analysis composition information is available in one location. This decreases the time spent searching for the applicable fluid analysis data to prove compliance. 

As all producers know, when it comes to proving compliance, being able to find the required information is the most important step.

Central Repository

ProTrend provides customers with a single repository for all of their fluid sample analyses and calibration required for measurement, allocation, and production accounting purposes. Data is automatically imported into the system with stringent quality assurance functionalities. Manual entry is eliminated and data accuracy is maximized.

Accurate Samples

As analyses are imported into the database, our automatic validation process takes place. If any of the components are outside of predetermined parameters, including high-low limits, the analysis is flagged. This automatic validation process can drastically reduce the number of validations that require human intervention, as only flagged analyses require attention.

Calibration Management

ProTrend also offers a comprehensive meter calibration management module that allows users to schedule, store and validate their calibration in the same central repository. We’ve also created a library of PDF editable templates that enable users to complete meter calibrations without missing pertinent information.

Simple Schedule

ProTrend makes it easy to meet all regulatory and contractual sample and calibration schedules. Our team helps to set the schedule and tracks it to ensure completion.
