This most recent LOAMS release greatly enhances the application’s sample and equipment management features and expands data mining functionality. Additional updates include a more responsive page layout that changes according to individual browser screen size and new widgets that make it easier to track sample progress and view and comment on recent account changes like equipment moves, merges or maintenance events. Users can also now comment on sample reports and send them to multiple recipients with a customized message.

Users also have the freedom to upload their own equipment lists, filter information for printing repeat sample labels ahead of time and sort and filter sample report spreadsheet downloads for a more informative, overall view of the data. Trend and comparison graphs provide a quick picture of equipment performance over time enabling equipment managers to make informed maintenance decisions now and in the future.

“LOAMS 2.0 gives users more control over sample information and opens the lines of communication between management and maintenance personnel and the laboratory,” said Cary Forgeron, general manager of Analysts, Inc. “Administrative tasks have also been streamlined. Administrators can re-assign user locations with a simple ‘drag and drop’ function or choose to apply a variety of equipment restrictions by worksite.

“The improved search and graphing functionality also significantly enhances the value of customer data,” Forgeron added. “The number of ways LOAMS allows customers to look at and compare equipment information is tremendous…and the more information they have, the bigger the contribution they can make to their bottom line.”

“Bureau Veritas is pleased to now offer our oil condition monitoring services to existing and new customers. We will continue to leverage the industry expertise of Analysts, Inc. and their renowned LOAMSSM software as we expand our OCM capabilities globally,” said Matt Hopkinson, senior vice president, Global Oil & Gas of Bureau Veritas’ Commodities Division.

Analysts, Inc. will be exhibiting at the Reliable Plant Conference in Cleveland, Ohio on April 21-23, 2015.  Senior managers will be on hand to demonstrate the benefits and functionality of the LOAMS 2.0 software as well as Bureau Veritas’ schedule for a global expansion of Oil Condition Monitoring services.
