About Gnaros (Docboss)
Linking vendor documentation to equipment tag numbers is extremely valuable for facility maintenance and operations staff. They can easily retrieve all related data and documents for any piece of equipment. Unfortunately, the information required to create these links is generally not stored within the documents themselves. It must be created manually for each document, and is typically completed by the supplier’s document department. Likewise, the engineering company’s verification and re-keying of this information is equally time consuming.
Focused largely on tagged equipment, DocBoss minimizes the manual work required to deliver project documentation. With a unique solution which creates and links the document register to the order data, DocBoss systematically creates document metadata (including document specific tag lists). We then use this data, (along with a heavy dose of document management and document formatting magic), to compliance to document submission specifications. The DocBoss system appends customer specific cover sheets to every document, includes all relevant metadata (including tag lists), tracks approval status, location, transaction history and due dates. Finally, it creates every document compilation (record books, shipping dossiers etc.) required for the job.
DocBoss development started in 2007, and Gnaros Inc (o/a DocBoss) was incorporated in 2009. All Gnaros software solutions apply unique data management solutions to supply chain problems.
Gnaros (pronounced ‘narrows’) means ‘having knowledge of a thing”. Our founder, Brad Bowyer, worked for a large instrumentation and controls representative in Calgary, AB for fifteen years. As the submission requirements become more stringent and more universal, he saw the opportunity for a technology business to solve the problem. DocBoss was born.
