IHS Customers Help Design New Enerdeq Browser
By Steve Glover
A major new version of the IHS Enerdeq® Browser will soon be available for your review. This new release will cover your most frequently requested usability enhancements as well as other significant upgrades.
Over the years since Enerdeq Browser was launched, the number of users has increased dramatically. During that time, we have invested significantly in the infrastructure to continually improve its performance and stability. For the past year we have also solicited your feedback to help direct us as we completely reengineered the Enerdeq Browser.
This new version of Enerdeq Browser that was developed based on your feedback (individual suggestions and those derived from a number of group and panel usability studies) will soon be accessible from your IHS login page. It will be called IHS Enerdeq Browser (BETA).
Over the next few months, you will have the opportunity to use the beta version of the new Enerdeq Browser. We believe that you'll appreciate the new, modern map interface and the performance of the new mapping that delivers almost instant access to functions that let you view and inspect millions of wells. The new mapping interface also includes detailed Microsoft Bing satellite imagery, providing you with the perfect backdrop for your maps. In addition, we've addressed your concerns regarding the number of windows that are opened during Enerdeq Browser sessions and we've streamlined the workflows to reduce the number of mouse clicks needed to access your data.
Below is a quick look at some of these usability enhancements and a few of the new features.
Key Usability Enhancements
- One window interface - no more multiple windows to manage
- Fewer mouse clicks to query, view and output the information you need
- Auto-generated query counts - the "count" button has been eliminated
- Ready access to My Queries, Maps and Files that lets you recall your data views with one click
- Streamlined access to a common output screen
- A single point of access for your output types (export, report, graph and summaries)
