PESA introduces valuable tool to advance health and safety in the workplace

Business Situation

As the unified voice for the energy industry’s oil field services and equipment sector, the Petroleum Equipment & Services Association (PESA) advocates and supports job creation, technological innovation and economic initiatives. Recognizing the importance of equipping its 200 global member companies with the insights they need to drive improved workplace practices, it wanted to develop a secure, accessible tool that provides peer-to-peer analysis. PESA envisioned its members using this data to advance workplace health and safety.

“Our success is based on confidentiality; as a trade association, we can’t exist if data is compromised. Avanade’s understanding of the sensitive nature of this data was critical to the success and launch of this platform.”

Molly Determan Vice President of Strategy & Programs, PESA


The association wanted a partner with deep expertise in end-to-end application development. Using a cloud-first approach and agile methodology, Avanade helped the association develop and deploy Microsoft Azure in just eight weeks. The platform features an application security model to protect competitor’s information while allowing extensive filtering capabilities of specific, anonymous data. To enhance the user experience, it is accessible anywhere, anytime and on any device.


Avanade’s Digital Studio experts built this first-of-its-kind app, providing PESA members with information not previously available, including:

  • Deep insights with granular data, available in customisable reports and graphs
  • Peer-to-peer comparison and benchmarking of health and safety practices
  • Gap analysis

For the first time in this industry, the people who lead health and safety for their organisations have a valuable resource at their fingertips, and it's accessible via desktop or mobile device.
