The Global Standard in Automated Control Rooms

At Crux OCM we have over 100 years of combined expertise in pipeline operations and process control engineering. Our product is based on a deep understanding of control room challenges - which parts are currently labour-intensive, prone to error, or subject to changing conditions - as well as a thorough grounding in safety standards. In time, we aim to be the global standard auto-pilot software for control rooms.

Automation is the aim but humans are the heart of our business


What We Can Do for You

We understand the nature of operations makes interruptions unthinkable, and we’ve worked hard to create a seamless product experience that benefits all aspects of your operation.

Seamless integration

Unlike generic tools that need extensive configuration, Crux OCM provides a pre-configured product that’s designed to work with your existing systems, to get you up and running with minimum fuss.

Better operations

CRUX fully automates control room operator actions from executions of procedures to checklists and rules of thumb, ensuring a more effective workflow, standardizing actions and lessening operator load.

Enhanced continuity

In addition to helping every operator do their best work, CRUX automation helps ensure that the skills and knowledge of your best operators aren’t lost when they retire but become part of the control room, a legacy on which to build the future.
