Founded in 2013, Sygnology has worked to provide strategic advantages to our clients that are simply not available to our competitors. We analyze analog signals on clients’ equipment (current, voltage, pressure, etc) to identify where problems may exist that aren’t yet obvious by using our unique remote access formula to monitor your systems and equipment anywhere in the world. While Sygnology has thus far worked predominantly in oil and gas, our technology can be applied to nearly any field.
