1. Ease of Use. 2. Fast and painless Implementation 3. Elimination of unnecessary clerks to re-enter paperwork from tool assemblies / disassemblies 4. Drakewell team is 1st class in support and product knowledge. 5. Fun team to work with. 6. Software has strong controls that are easy to work with. 7. Engine the software runs on is extremely powerful. 8. Feels more like shopping on amazon than working in an accounting package 9. Analytics are amazing. Recently presented data tot a customer live in DW, Sales team is now using this functionality. 10. Alerts to team members is a great feature, when tools arrive, when incidents occur, when jobs start or are completed. 11. Daily revenue function is my goto each morning. 12. End users (Tech's/Field Engineers) actually like the software and commend its ease of use.
As far as the initial Roll out of the Software package, us migrating from multiple ERP programs and Excel spreadsheets, The attractiveness of the software from an Asset perceptive is that these components are live, our technicians use DW on Ipads as they receive tools, build them, and dispatch them thus eliminating clerks who historically entered the data. Once we were ready to migrate, we were live within 1 month, and all techs trained. My favorite area of the software is the ease of Bids and tickets, and the forecasting. Very powerful and intuitive areas. Our salesmen are creating bids in customer offices within seconds of being asked. Back to the rollout, I highly recommend working with the DW team. A refreshing change from the "others" in the DD software world.

Using Drakewell allows me to keep my job, thus providing me with sufficient funds to feed my family.
Its better than winserve, mostly. Forcing a person to type a minimum number of characters while asking for positive statements is like farming for like on social media. Pointless.
Its an internet based software, in a business that operates in places where internet serviced is awful. The lowest level of clearance is so basic, it's more tedious than winserve, and the requirement for all fields to be filled in on a BHA before one can save is ridiculous. That makes it impossible to try and get ahead on finishing up a BHA. Not being able to, on the field hand level, transfer BHA from one job to the next is a big hiccup also.
Thanks for taking the time to review us!
We are working on ways to make offline sync happen for you. In the mean time, Drakewell does work on any mobile device or hotspot if you don't have internet but can get a bit of cell service.
Additionally, we don't allow BHA's to transfer from job to job, BUT we do easily allow the shipment of tools from job to job. We can update Aim's configuration to make this happen, but we'll need permission from your company to do so. Please raise this issue with your coordinator if it's something that would really benefit you!

I can see where Drakewell can be beneficial to those in the office, in town, where internet is good, and they work a 40hr week. For those of us who have to actually use this software on a drilling location, it's not good, at all. Most rigs don't tend to have very good internet, and what we do have, is run off of a near non-existent cell service. This, in turn, winds up adding about 2hrs a day to our already 12hr shifts. It's really quite evident that the person who designed this software, never spent any real time in the field. I honestly don't know how you talk anybody, with any field sense, to actually spend money on Drakewell.
Compared to other available reporting systems, nothing, honestly, comes to mind.
It's redundant, slow and requires the field location to have decent internet, which most don't.
Thank you for taking your time to give us feedback! One of the best things about Drakewell is that you can run it from your phone. Anywhere you have the ability to make a phone call or check your email from, you should be able to use Drakewell from as well. That being said, we are aware that some rig locations may have poor service which can inhibit seamless utilization of Drakewell in real time. We are in the process of developing a way to run Drakewell without internet, that will automatically pipe the information entered when sufficient internet service has resumed. This is expected to be deployed to the field within a few months.
Feedback from users like you is what drives innovation in the Drakewell platform, so again, thank you for your time and comments.

combines several other software that is needed into one software. Combines inventory tracking, motor and MWD rebuild tracking, rig daily reporting and some sales aids and administrative reporting. 3d well design helps at the filed level understand what the well is doing. Also very easy to use and implement. Also like the feature of "Roles" so everyone can see there work but don't have to see what everyone is doing to make the software work. Also like that it works on any device, computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone.
Not being able use it offline. needs the ability at some rigs that don't have internet to still use the software.
Thank you very much for taking time to review us!
We will keep working to continue to improve the platform and its availability during times of poor connectivity.
Love the software from tracking cost to BHA design. Software is very user friendly
I personally would like to see anti collision in the directional tab instead of in the 3D plots. A lot of places we are working internet is not real reliable, and it would be nice if it could work with out being connected.

We also appreciate the feedback on the UI for anti-collision information. Feedback from users like you is what drives innovation in the Drakewell platform, so again, thank you for your time and comments.

There is an implementation investment to get up and running. This varies by client. Once live, a monthly recurring charge begins.
For directional drilling service companies Drakewell charges a base monthly fee and a day rate.
For rental companies Drakewell charges a flat monthly fee. No charges based on users, no license fees, no “new feature” fees.
