About The Network Edge

At AP-Networks’ user conference, The Network Edge, you will get hands-on training on AP-Networks’ cloud-based tools. These Industry-leading tools reside in three digital platforms—the Turnaround Network, the Capital Project Network, and the Upstream Network. More than 50,000 users spread across over 400 facilities and more than 50 countries rely on the AP-Networks suite tools to optimize their project and turnaround planning, preparation, and execution efforts. The Network Edge is your opportunity to learn from expert AP-Networks developers and leading users from across the globe, leaving with the knowledge and insights to wield these tools effectively at your own site.

Through a mix of hands-on training, presentations, and discussions, we will explore:

NaviTrack: This Industry-standard work process deployment and implementation tool brings best practices to the desktop of every project and turnaround professional in the enterprise. It has become the backbone of turnaround organizations the world over.

PYXIS: Launched earlier this year, PYXIS is the only risk management tool to draw on the unrivaled data and innovation of AP-Networks. Import risks from past events and other sites, as well as common Industry risks identified by AP-Networks. Track mitigation actions, and measure risk reduction with the exclusive Risk Severity Index.

acXis: Launched alongside PYXIS, acXis is an innovative action register that brings all the preparation activities for your event together in the AP-Networks suite of tools. View actions from your last meeting alongside event actions from the work process, the risk register, the upcoming lessons learned register, and more.

These are only a few of the tools we’ll dive into at The Network Edge. Don’t miss this opportunity to get hands-on training, gain insight from experts and peers, and have your questions answered.
