BirdDog Version 4.0

BirdDog™ Information Systems is pleased to announce the release of Version 4.0 of Remote Data Retrieval. This newest system, to which you automatically have access when you log into our host site, provides enhanced features that are certain to make you even more productive... such as a more streamlined and intuitive user interface, the ability for end-users to perform ad hoc changes to alarm settings, and layered administration. With layered administration, end-user organizations can assign BirdDog client administrators who, in turn, will be able to add/delete other enterprise users, set each user's rights (from read-only through full editing, including use of Demand Polling), reset user passwords, add/delete Morning Report recipients, and much more.

In addition to the BirdDog Remote Data Retrieval system functional enhancements, we've also deployed new security provisions to further complement our previously implemented use of an HTTPS website to provide full SSL encryption of your sensitive and proprietary information. These enhancements include the use of unique email addresses as User IDs, as well as stronger Password requirements with history restrictions and forced routine changes. As before, with just a single account User ID and Password, your log-in will provide direct access to all BirdDog SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) systems to which you have end-user rights. And as you add or remove systems from your user profile, the single sign-on process will automatically recognize those changes.

BirdDog Security Policy Change Alert

Security Policy Change Alert - For the enhanced security of BirdDog™ Information Systems users, effective November 11, 2013, User IDs will be unique email addresses and account password requirements will be strengthened. New passwords will need to be at least 8 characters in length and contain at least one each of the following characters: uppercase alphabetical; lowercase alphabetical; numeric; and “special” (such as @, &, _, #, etc.). At the appropriate time, you will be prompted during your BirdDog log-in to click on a webpage link that will provide more details and guide you through your password change process.

Date: 1/5/2012

Operation Eagle Ford Shale Gas-Tech

Coastal Flow Measurement recently announced Operation Eagle Ford Shale Gas-Tech, an ambitious program to recruit and train returning military veterans for a career in natural gas measurement. With the rapidly expanding oil and gas production in the Eagle Ford Shale region of South Central Texas, theres a significant and growing need for skilled personnel, and this initiative will help alleviate that demand while, perhaps even more importantly, providing jobs for vets.

Coastal Flow's newly launched program is a demonstration of the companys sincere appreciation for all military veterans while supporting our industrys exceptional growth. Under this program, Coastal Flow is actively seeking companies interested in hiring qualified returning veterans who successfully complete our comprehensive measurement training program. For those accepted into our program, Coastal Flow will provide basic natural gas measurement training, including meals, lodging, and all course materials, at
no cost to the trainees. Following the first year of employment as a gas measurement technician, advanced training will also be made available at no cost to the trainees.

All training will be conducted at Coastal Flow's Houston facilities with the first training class scheduled for March 2012. The company is currently coordinating its recruiting efforts through various military bases while communicating details of the plan to its extensive industry contacts who are most likely to hire the graduates of this program. If you know of a returning military vet who may qualify, or if your organization can help Coastal Flow to find returning soldiers a job in our industry, please contact us at
