HOUSTON, March 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Rigzone announced today the release of RigEdge, a solution for comparing, benchmarking, and conducting analysis of the global offshore competitive rig fleet. The cloud-based solution allows for high-quality analysis of the mobile rig fleet through a unique visual interface.
RigEdge provides users with an interactive global map of rigs currently working as well as access to a range of reports and charts. The power of RigEdge comes from the RigEdge Number (REN) – a dynamic number assigned to each rig that is calculated from a proprietary algorithm based on a series of rig features and characteristics. The REN provides an unbiased approach to competitive rig analysis to help businesses better evaluate the global rig fleet and to make objective, well-informed business decisions.
