    Rivitt on Oil and Gas Startups

    Join host Jake as he catches up with Clay and Miles, discussing their journey over the past two years since their last appearance on the podcast. Discover how Rivitt has deployed a completely wireless, real-time automated data delivery system, transforming the oil and gas sector.
    Clay and Miles shared their early days, starting with rubber maids and homemade sensors to now deploying sophisticated wireless tech that’s reshaping the industry. Their relentless problem-solving and iterative improvements have led to innovations that ensure minimal onsite intervention and maximum data accuracy.
    Traditional companies required clients to adapt to their platforms, leading to inefficiencies and potential data breaches. Rivitt flipped the script by delivering raw, real-time data directly to clients' clouds, ensuring data security and empowering teams to build tailored solutions.
    With real-time data streaming, operators can automate logistics, anticipate needs, and ensure seamless operations, much like McDonald's efficient inventory system but for the oil and gas industry.
    Rivitt is poised to further innovate with their Pulse product, integrating visual data, centralized communication, and customizable event detection rules, making it a game-changer in the field.
    Rivitt’s advancements reflect the broader technological shift in the oil and gas sector, driven by a new generation of decision-makers eager to integrate cutting-edge tech into traditional operations.

Fantastic podcast for those that like to learn and are interested in the oil and gas industry. Each episode seems to highlight a different portion of the oil and gas industry and the show really demonstrates the wide number of opportunities the industry offers. This podcast is a go to when I’m feeling uninspired or burnt out.

I find myself going back and re-listening to old episodes multiple times.

Can’t hear Alex

Great content but they need to get Alex a better mic or maybe have him speak closer to it. I can’t hear Alex at all most of the time and am surprised there was no QC done before the podcast is released
