#Energy Stock News: Enterprise (TSX: $E.TO) Equipment Controls & Automation Lowers Costs, Increases Revenues


#Energy Stock News: Enterprise (TSX: $E.TO) Equipment Controls & Automation Lowers Costs, Increases Revenues


ST. ALBERT, Alberta - April 25, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Enterprise Group, Inc. ("Company" or "Enterprise") (TSX:E), a consolidator of services to the energy sector; focused primarily on specialized equipment rental, announced today that it has further enhanced its proprietary dispatch & asset tracking software now known as "StarChain."


The Company is adding a decentralized and distributed ledger to its Equipment to definitively record all machine data as transactions on a secure private network. The recorded data will be verified via the StarChain Module's and then uploaded to the StarChain Network.

The purpose of StarChain is to monitor location, usage and address repair issues in real time to maximize revenues and vastly lessen equipment downtime from the Company's extensive pool of rental assets. If a piece of equipment fails or experiences a mechanical deficiency on a remote project site, StarChain alerts Enterprise and the fleet manager immediately so that a replacement can be deployed, increasing revenues, efficiency and asset life.

In the past, the client had to inform the Company of issues, the equipment would need to be taken offline and repaired. The technology also ensures the security of the asset against loss, theft or tampering during its deployment.

While the benefits of StarChain for Enterprise are immediate, it also guarantees that clients get superior equipment, service and a new level of control via the "StarChain" client portal, where Site Managers can schedule, report and remote control their rented assets via any connected smart device.

Enterprise's StarChain is Already Well Ahead of the Curve
The Company sees this technology accomplishment as the baseline for future developments within ‘Industry 4.0': The current industrial transformation caused by automation, data exchanges, Big Data, A.I. and IoT. The Company's evolving technology will exploit smart industry as the foundation for a competitive rental service.

"We investigated the benefits of developing a cost effective digital network and the practical applications that would emerge from its existence. We quickly realized that if we were able develop a low-cost solution that made significant financial sense that we could begin offering a competitive and proprietary rental product which would benefit our business and provide our clients with a unique service," stated Desmond O'Kell, SVP, Enterprise. "If we want our assets to communicate with each other we first need to give them the ability to talk. The advantages and efficiencies "StarChain" brings to both Enterprise and its client are substantial."

Enterprise has no plans to sell or license what it sees as an incredible competitive advantage. The technology will be extended to the operations of future acquisitions, this will allow for the significant growth, in size and geographical reach.

The Technology Behind StarChain
Enterprise has developed its solution utilizing a number of technologies. The software is built from Node.js, RethinkDB and Material Design that runs on a customized Linux distro inside the module. The hardware (micro-controller/computer) is built using a similar architecture to the Raspberry PI, providing Enterprise a robust interface to its equipment via GPIO (General Purpose Input Output).

With the module successfully deployed, the current GPS device becomes obsolete, allowing Enterprise to eliminate significant monthly expenses when installed on all our rental assets.

Energy/ Infrastructure News; Enterprise’s (TSX: $E.TO) Asset Tracking Software: Margins Up. Costs Down; @enterprisegrp

Energy/ Infrastructure News; Enterprise’s (TSX: $E.TO) Asset Tracking Software: Margins Up. Costs Down; @enterprisegrp


April 12, 2018 - Commentary for Enterprise Group, Inc.  (TSX: E): One of the great things about being an investor is unearthing something that, while logical, is unexpected: But could be a nifty value add to shareholders. Such an example is Enterprise Group’s (E: TSX) proprietary asset tracking software ‘STAR’; critical to maximum use of equipment and most importantly, getting it back.

Read this news in full at http://www.investorideas.com/CO/TSXE/news/2018/04121AssetTrackingSoftware.asp

Experienced investors will note the potential of Industrial equipment rental leader Enterprise Group, not the least of which is that its book value has risen to $1.01 a share and is trading at 44 cents. This growth is just the latest in a successful strategy taken by Enterprise management after weathering the 2014-15 resource downturn. If anything, the company is leaner and stronger now; the result of the recent sale of subsidiary sale of CT Underground for $20.6 million.

The tale of Enterprise's proprietary ‘STAR’ tracking program is one such story. For those old enough, the software is like Six Sigma on steroids.

Likely the most significant headache/loss/revenue hit haunting all rental businesses (in this case resource and industrial rentals) is the risk of losing a piece of expensive equipment (or several parts that add up to a significant corporate loss.)

Or not realizing maximum usage through inefficient tracking. Given that the security of assets could well be at the whim of client honesty and the weather; pieces lost for a period of time or forever can obviously be costly.


When Enterprise Group (TSX: E) acquired Westar Oilfield Rentals in 2014, one of the assets the company was working on was a business management software, known today as ‘STAR’. Enterprise continued to fund and upgrade the project and found itself with a proprietary asset that is critical to the profitability and cost mitigation of all of its subsidiaries.

Enterprise management currently owns almost 20 percent (just shy of 11 million) of its shares, so investors should not worry about motivation. It intends to be the leader and industrial and resource rental company of choice nationwide.


How E Got Here.

Through strategic plans including asset sales, ongoing cost-cutting and sound business decisions E is leaner, more pivotal and have added diversity to its client base. The fact that Enterprise also designs and builds specialty equipment for our clients—15 patents in place with more coming --means that it can be immediately responsive and relevant to address its private or Government customers' unique needs.

Since January 1, 2018: Key investment metrics evidencing ongoing growth:

1. Secured a $9 million Supply and Services agreement with a significant International resource company.
2. Q4 2017 revenue $10.7m versus Q4 2016 at $8.3m
3. EBITDA Q4 2017 $2.56m versus Q4 2016 $1.87m
4. Net Income Q4 2017 $1.1m versus Q4 2016 loss ($9.9m)
5. EPS Q4 2017 $0.02 versus Q4 2016 loss ($0.85)


In Q1 2018, Enterprise has secured a $9.1 million contract, sold its CT Underground subsidiary for $20.6 million resulting in virtually complete debt retirement. As well, the Company has an acquisition chest of $15 million loan availability for accretive and complementary companies or assets.

Next? STAR.

Financial results of the software use are measurable and impressive:

Proprietary platform for future development and refinement
Task and monitoring capabilities saves two significant salaries
Allows management to plan to deploy company-wide through 3 subs and future acquisitions
Generates a roughly 30 percent annual cost savings
Produced a five up to a possible 10 percent margin improvement
One of the Company's impressive value propositions over competitors
No plans to license; to remain a corporate asset.
Not aware of any competitive software

The software tracks assets, which in itself cuts costs, utilizing the location and site ID put directly on the invoice. The system always knows where the asset is, and fleet managers confirm that on delivery.

This approach keeps the customer up and running and ensures other expended revenue and protection of the asset. The key is the development of about 18 modules that work together and exchange information over a central database; all laid out in a very user-friendly navigational format.






"With the components developed, we began process mapping our existing business operations. As a result, we were able to considerably reduce our administrative costs by automating many of the human elements," stated Des O'Kell SVP of Enterprise Group. "Furthermore, with its implementation, the cost benefits that emerged from asset tracking are substantial.”

Enterprise is not the same Company that went into the 2015 resource downturn.

All Cylinders Firing

Throughout 2017, Enterprise has experienced a meaningful increase in activity from its existing customers coupled with a substantial surge in new customers which has resulted in increased market share for its business units.

Management's efforts to streamline and maximize efficiencies have translated into improved margins, decisive cash-flow quarter after quarter and a return to profitability in Q3 2017.

Management feels that Enterprise is within a very select group of producers and service providers that have aggressively adapted their organizations to operate successfully in the current commodity price environment.




With 2018 starting out with impressive strength, the Company has many other initiatives and strategic business plans to execute, particularly in further debt reduction, potential acquisitions and expansion beyond Western Canada.

With the calculated diversification of its customer base over the last three years, the Company has further mitigated market risk and is exploring substantial development opportunities to grow and enhance shareholder value.

Energy Stock News: Enterprise Group (TSX: $E.TO) Deploys Proprietary Asset Tracking & Dispatch Software "Star" to Lower Costs and Increase Margins


St. Albert, AB - April 10, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Enterprise Group, Inc. ("Company" or "Enterprise") (TSX:E), a consolidator of services to the energy sector; focused primarily on specialized equipment rental, announced today that it has implemented its proprietary dispatch & asset tracking software known as "Star" to further cut costs and improve margins.

Star, tracks and reports utilized assets, which provides the Fleet Manager the ability to ensure the highest level of service to the client: In turn, lower costs while delivering maximum equipment performance.


When Enterprise Group (TSX:E) acquired Westar Oilfield Rentals in 2014, the management team was working on a business management & dispatch software.

After exhaustive and unsuccessful efforts in sourcing an effective software solution, it was apparent that the group needed to develop this system in house. Enterprise continued to fund and upgrade the project resulting in this unique and proprietary technology asset, critical to the profitability and cost mitigation of all the Company's subsidiaries.

"With the components developed, we began process mapping our existing business operations. As a result, we were able to considerably reduce our administrative costs by automating many of the human elements," stated Des O'Kell SVP of Enterprise Group. "Furthermore, with its implementation, the cost benefits that emerged from asset tracking are substantial."

This approach keeps the customer up and running and ensures other expended revenue and protection of the asset. The software is comprised of 18 components that work together and exchange information over a central database. Early results confirmed improved metrics including lowering costs and raising margins.

With Star successfully deployed in all our rental divisions, Enterprise Group now has a proprietary and custom software designed explicitly for its business.
