OneSoft Subsidiary, OneBridge and EMDAD LLC Enter Into Teaming Agreement
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada (November 5, 2020) – OneBridge Solutions Canada Inc. (“OneBridge”), a wholly owned subsidiary of OneSoft Solutions Inc. (TSX-V:OSS; OTCQB:OSSIF) (the “Company” or “OneSoft”) and EMDAD LLC, an Abu Dhabi-based integrated solution provider for the energy sector (“EMDAD”) are pleased to announce a collaborative initiative to market and deploy OneBridge’s Cognitive Integrity ManagementTM (“CIM”) software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) solution to manage oil and gas (“O&G”) pipelines for EMDAD’s clients in the United Arab Emirates and other select Middle East regions (“Teaming Agreement”).
Pursuant to the spirit and terms of the Teaming Agreement OneBridge will contribute training and technical, marketing and sales support services to assist EMDAD to conduct production trials and commercial onboarding projects, with EMDAD providing high-value engineering, implementation and support services associated with CIM for its O&G clients.
The parties intend to kick off this joint effort by co-presenting as exhibitors to a target audience of EMDAD clients at the upcoming Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition & Conference (“ADIPEC”) conference on November 9-12, 2020. Although the ADIPEC conference is normally hosted annually in Abu Dhabi as an attended event, drawing 155,000 trade visitors, 2,200 exhibiting companies and 11,000 conference delegates, the 2020 event will be held as a virtual venue due to challenges posed by Covid. This conference provides an opportunity to introduce CIM to attendees whose focus will be on key conference themes including “Building Future Business Resilience Through Technology, Innovation and Partnerships”; “Environmental, Social Governance (“ESG”) and the O& Industry in a Post-pandemic World”; and “Workforce of the Future: Positioning For Success In A Time of Change”.
“Commencing this working relationship with OneBridge and CIM is very timely for both our clients and our company,” said Aly Abdel Malak, EMDAD CEO. “The collaborative relationship with OneBridge fully aligns with EMDAD’s strategy to advance higher value services for our clients by implementing next generation artificial intelligence, machine learning and digital transformation technologies that will greatly benefit our clients in their future operations.”
“We strongly believe that CIM’s automated capability to ingest, normalize, aggregate and analyze the multitude of data sets with machine learning and data science, more than any other single advancement in technology, will be the winning strategy to improve pipeline integrity management, save operational costs and ultimately reduce and stop pipeline failures,” added Tim Edward, OneBridge President. “We are very pleased to be working with EMDAD, an innovative and agile industry leader in the U.A.E. and surrounding markets.”
