Data Management for Fracturing Sand Facilities

Data Management for Fracturing Sand Facilities
What is SandTrack™?

SandTrack™ is a software application that provides data management for fracturing sand facilities. It provides Inventory and activity tracking for hydraulic fracturing sand storage and distribution facilities. It can also be used with any other types of sand distribution facilities. It integrates seamlessly with a Sterling Systems control system to provide data management and historical data logging for activities that occur through the control system. An optional data import/export module can be included to provide a bridge between third-party truck or railcar systems and the Sterling Systems control system. This allows truck and railcar tickets to be imported from the third-party system, serviced by the control system and exported back to the third-party system. The SandTrack inventory data management for fracturing sand facilities application provides data management, historical data logging, ticket printing, management reports, and bridging between the aforementioned third-party and the Sterling Systems control system and the Sterling Systems WebCentral™ remote supervisory application, as well as any remote corporate network ERP system.
