Last week we were invited to the US by our biggest customer Premier. The reason for our visit was two-fold. Firstly we were there to catch up on some of the new technologies we are exploring with Premier for RouteShoot, such as data capture from Google Glass and from drones.

The second reason for our visit was to attend the Willbros "Innovation Summit" in New York. At this event, Willbros displayed some of their own technology solutions, developed in-house, for the utilities and pipeline sectors using the Google Maps Engine (GME). The event was staged to demonstrate Willbros' cutting-edge approach to data management at a time when US Codes of Federal Regulation (CFR) are placing increasing governance pressures on infrastructure management companies.

Attendees at the event included Willbros' clients, potential clients, senior managers and investors.
RouteShoot featured as technology partners for Geo-referenced video capture
We were really proud and privileged to feature at this event, alongside Google, as a technology partner to Willbros. We would like to extend our sincerest thanks to Marc, Chris and the whole of the Willbros/Premier team for this opportunity.
