DevonWay: Delivering Solutions that Help High-reliability Organizations Achieve Cost-effective Excellence

Robert Trounce President & CEO
Safety, quality, reliability, and productivity are key focus areas for the energy industry. The challenge however for large and often geographically disparate organizations is to facilitate open communication, promote teamwork, reinforce desired behaviors, and eliminate latent organizational weaknesses in order to, as the industry often states, “find problems before they find us”. Adding more complexity to the overall operating environment is that contractors and suppliers must also be tightly integrated into the software systems that drive these key focus areas. Engaging everyone is essential.

At DevonWay, our goal is to help our customers operate safely while meeting the high pressures of production and efficiency goals. Much of that is cultural, but much of it is also procedural. Developing, implementing, and effectively managing the complex operational procedures of a high-reliability organization requires a combination of people, process, and technology all working together. To help our customers bring these critical components together, DevonWay delivers a suite of applications that establish an organization-wide, highly-integrated, and mission enabling performance improvement, quality assurance, and safety culture management sys-tem. DevonWay’s solutions suite provides for early identification and correction of problems with strategic, functional as well as cross-cutting implications. DevonWay solutions help high-reliability organizations:
• Eliminate counter-productive data silos
• Implement secure, Cloud-based solutions
• Integrate all performance improvement, quality assurance, or contractor assurance applications, deployed on a common platform that is off the shelf, upgradeable, and evergreen
• Increase visibility into potential issues before they become real problems
• Identify trends and manage actions to eliminate failure and reduce risk
• Facilitate deeper engagement of more informed management personnel
• Turn data into a valuable asset with powerful advanced search and business intelligence reporting tools, resulting in good data, good analysis, and good decisions
• Easily integrate with existing systems such as SAP, IBM, Oracle, and internally-built systems

Our customers operate in asset-intensive and process-driven industries where policies and procedures, standards, processes, and best-practices, are vital to safe, reliable, efficient operations and to continuous improvement.
Yet, each organization requires flexibility to configure solutions that meet their specific policy, process, and procedure requirements, whether at the project/site level, corporate level, or within their regulatory environment. One size does not fit all.


With DevonWay’s platform, enterprise software projects are no longer on the critical path for your business success. Achieving cost-effective excellence is within reach


Technologically, this presents a unique challenge for a software solution. DevonWay approached this challenge by developing its YourWay platform, a single code base that all DevonWay customers and applications run on. YourWay combines all the common elements needed to support many and varied operational processes. The YourWay platform modularizes each customer’s applications in a way that let’s each customer run applications designed specifically for their needs, circumstances, and procedures, while keeping all customers on the same common platform code base. With its single code base, DevonWay customers no longer have high-cost, high-risk upgrades typical of their legacy enterprise software systems. With DevonWay’s platform, enterprise software projects are no longer on the critical path for your business success. Organizations using DevonWay’s platform and applications are able to do things in ways that are not possible in the legacy software industry. Achieving cost-effective excellence is within reach.

Edward Deming is quoted as saying “A bad system will defeat a good person every time.” High-reliability organizations recognize the need to invest in technology systems that enable their people to be successful. At DevonWay, we’ve partnered with our customers in this effort to deliver systems of engagement, where people and proven processes combine with premier technology to improve the overall safety, quality, reliability, and performance of their organizations and operations.
