The Fortis Designed Solutions program is based on the Six Sigma approach and identifies inefficiencies at the well sites of customers. Fortis works with its customers to make improvements and make changes that will eliminate mistakes and costly down time.
Downtime on a customer’s location costs everyone a significant amount of money in wages, third-party costs and lost production. Designed Solutions measures down time and then implements controls to eliminate it.
Designed Solutions reduces cost and increases production. It minimizes non-productive time with quality control and gaining efficiencies through rig packages. This managed approach results in increased customer loyalty and stronger partnerships and an improved bottom line for all involved.
