Edmonton, Alberta, Canada (February 7, 2018) – OneSoft Solutions Inc. (the “Company” or “OneSoft”) (TSX-V:OSS, OTC:OSSIF) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, OneBridge Solutions, Inc. (“OneBridge”), has entered into a Pilot Program agreement with another U.S.-based, Fortune 500 natural gas, oil and petrochemical company (the “Client”). The Client, whose operations include natural gas gathering, treating, processing, transportation and storage, primarily in the United States, will evaluate OneBridge’s Cognitive Integrity ManagementTM (“CIM”) SaaS solution.
“We are seeing continued traction for OneBridge’s CIM solution,” said Tim Edward, President of OneBridge Canada. “In this case, one of North America’s leading providers of midstream energy services has recognized CIM’s value proposition and is now investigating CIM in pursuit of its commitment to improve its internal processes to detect threats to its pipeline infrastructure, through digital transformation and machine learning. This Client is only one of many companies investigating our new technology, as evidenced by the high degree of interest expressed by numerous attendees that we met at PPIM last week, the world’s largest pipeline integrity management conference held annually in Houston.”
Brandon Taylor, CTO and President of OneBridge USA, added, “This pilot is another tangible result of the great support that Microsoft is contributing to help us launch our solution in the marketplace. We continue to work together with Microsoft’s sales teams to pursue opportunities that currently total approximately 350,000 miles in aggregate of U.S.-based oil and gas pipelines.”
The initial revenue associated with this contract is a nominal fixed fee which recovers OneBridge costs associated with the project. OneSoft’s objective is to retain this Client as a commercial customer that uses CIM on an ongoing basis to generate recurring revenues in accordance with the Company’s software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) business model.
ABOUT THE CLIENT
The Client is a USA-based company which, together with its publicly traded partnerships, is a leading North American provider of midstream energy services to consumers of natural gas, natural gas liquids (“NGLs”), crude oil, refined products and petrochemicals. The Client currently has an asset base that exceeds $50 billion, due to expansions from organic growth opportunities and acquisitions. Its operations include multiple NGLs, crude oil and natural gas storage facilities, refineries, processing plants, comprehensive terminal and transportation systems, natural gas marketing and an extensive list of petrochemical and refined products and services. The Client’s major projects include significant investments in software and technology to streamline operations, reduce costs and provide for future growth.
ABOUT THE CIM PILOT PROJECT
Pursuant to the terms of the arrangement, OneBridge will normalize the Client’s inline inspection (“ILI”) data for segments of its pipeline, ingest and classify the data, and align all features to calculate anomaly growth rates. Using OneBridge proprietary Pattern Detection and Interacting Threats data science algorithms, the solution is designed to detect threats using Predictive Analytics, while providing advanced business intelligence, graphical presentations, and reporting of the data that assists clients to predict pipeline failures and thereby save lives, protect the environment, reduce operational costs and address regulatory compliance requirements.
