PRCI and Technical Toolboxes Partnership

PRCI AND TECHNICAL TOOLBOXES DELIVER INDUSTRY-DRIVEN ENGINEERING SOFTWARE

The strategic partnership between Technical Toolboxes and the Pipeline Research Council International (PRCI) delivers software solutions that address the most pressing engineering challenges faced by companies operating and servicing pipelines in the energy industry.

From Industry-Driven Research to Industry Standard Software

Every year, PRCI produces collaborative research results that align with the industry’s priorities. Members allocate funds directly to the projects important to their operations and business drivers by means of annual voting ballots. Research projects are planned and developed through PRCI’s Technical Committees which are comprised of technical and operational experts from the world’s leading midstream companies.

Key outputs of PRCI’s research projects often include the development of software solutions to address industry-driven engineering challenges. These software solutions align with industry standards and best practices, and have been designed, developed, and tested by pipeline professionals from industry-leading engineering firms and pipeline operating companies. Through its role as PRCI’s software distributor, Technical Toolboxes implements these solutions on the Pipeline HUB engineering software platform and integrates them with existing engineering applications, value-added platform tools, and GIS functionality, to help engineering teams accelerate project schedules, lower expenditures, and reduce risk through digital transformation.
