About The Network Edge

At AP-Networks’ User Conference, The Network Edge, you will get hands-on training on the AP-Networks Software Toolset. These industry-leading tools reside in three online portals—the Turnaround Network, Capital Project Network, and Upstream Network. More than 50,000 users spread across 400 facilities and 50 countries rely on the AP-Networks Software Toolset to optimize their project and turnaround planning, preparation, and execution efforts. The Network Edge is your opportunity to learn from AP-Networks software experts and leading users from across the globe, leaving with the knowledge and insight to wield these tools effectively at your own site.

Through a mix of presentations, discussions, and interactive sessions we will explore:

NaviTrack: This Industry-standard work process deployment and implementation system 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.

Readiness Pyramid: This powerful self-assessment tool evaluates readiness by measuring planning status and team alignment. Industry leaders rely on this tool to pinpoint the gaps in their organization.

Real-Time Benchmarking and Data Collection: This new addition to the AP-Networks Software Toolset allows users to upload turnaround data and instantly receive benchmarks comparing cost, labor hours, and peak labor to Industry norms. There’s nothing else in Industry that delivers the same real-time results.

Those 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.


Who Should Attend?

The Network Edge is designed for users and potential users of the AP-Networks Software Toolset. Current administrators and frequent users of the Turnaround Network, Capital Project Network, and Upstream Network will find a wealth of knowledge that they can apply to their own planning and preparation efforts.
