Fully customizable Permit management software – ePTW
We found ASK-EHS to be a competent and proficient agency to deliver the Permit to Work software. This was validated by our team through a pilot implementation for one of our facilities in the Waluj plant (Aurangabad, Maharashtra). Our team found the software to be very useful and based on their recommendations, the software was then rolled out to the entire (Waluj) plant.
Based on the successful operation of the software in the Waluj plant, the software was later rolled out to other plants / locations as well.
We found the software operations to be satisfactory and received the full support of vendor’s team during implementation.
'We selected ASK-EHS on the basis of several evaluation parameters. Out of the most important one was their knowledge and understanding of the PTW system. It was easy to communicate with the ASK-EHS team considering their experience in this segment, especially the global energy industry.
The software is now running for many years and has seen a successful run. We have received good support from the vendor and highly recommend ASK-EHS, especially for the PTW software.'
