Edmonton, Alberta, Canada (September 14, 2017) – OneSoft Solutions Inc. (the “Company” or “OneSoft”) (TSX-V:OSS) is pleased to advise that its wholly owned subsidiary, OneBridge Solutions, Inc. (“OneBridge”), has commenced a Pilot Program for evaluation of OneBridge’s Cognitive Integrity Management SaaS solution by another US-based oil & gas pipeline operator (the “Client”).
Pursuant to the terms of the agreement, OneBridge will normalize the Client’s inline inspection (“ILI”) data for segments of its pipeline, ingest the data, map certain shape and ILI files, and align anomalies and calculate their growth rates. This Pilot Program is expected to advance development of our proprietary Pattern Detection and Interacting Threats machine learning algorithms, which are designed to detect threats to pipelines over time using Predictive Analytics, while providing advanced business intelligence, graphical presentations, and reporting of the data that operators require to manage their pipeline infrastructure. Additional to the ILI data, the Client will also provide various external data sets (e.g., environmental information), which OneBridge will correlate to anomalies and other features to further enhance the functionality of the Cognitive Integrity Management solution.
Tim Edward, President of OneBridge, stated “We are excited about their commitment to this Pilot Program because this Client is fully committed to operate their pipeline business to the highest levels of responsibility and safety. We are also appreciative of their involvement to use, and assist us to further evolve our Cognitive Integrity Management solution. Their objective of reducing pipeline failures to zero aligns fully with our own vision for Cognitive Integrity Management and OneBridge.”
Brandon Taylor, OneBridge CTO added, “We look forward to working with their highly experienced integrity management personnel, who are clearly amongst the technology leaders in the industry. We intend to use Cognitive Integrity Management to validate their existing results and truth data. In addition, our data science team will use our Pattern Detection and Interacting Threat algorithms to identify whether Machine Learning can potentially expose threats that may not have previously been discovered.”
The Pilot Program, using a “succeed fast/fail fast” approach, will accommodate a full evaluation of Cognitive Integrity Management by the Client within weeks. The objective of the program is to allow the Client to utilize Cognitive Integrity Management as a key component of their integrity management process on a trial basis while using their own data, and then subsequently contract with them as a long-term commercial customer. The initial revenue associated with this contract is a nominal fixed fee which recovers OneBridge costs associated with the project. The potential exists that future recurring annualized SaaS revenue could increase to the low to mid six-figure range, should the Client adopt Cognitive Integrity Management for their long-term use.

The Client has received various awards for outstanding safety and environmental practices, and is actively involved as a progressive industry leader to implement new technologies and practices that promote the safety of the public, its employees, and the environment.
