HOUSTON, Texas—July 31, 2019 — ChaiOne, the leader in behavioral science-led digital transformation for the oil and gas, utilities, and industrial services sectors, today announced it is a winner in the Houston Business Journal’s 2019 Innovation Awards.

Houston Business Journal’s Innovation Awards program honors Houston’s most innovative companies.  More than just a startup/tech awards program, it recognizes innovation across all industries and all facets of business that contributes directly to measurable material business growth.  

ChaiOne was named a winner for its disruptive behavioral science-led digital innovation practice led by the company’s team of PhDs in psychology, anthropology, and human factors, which combines data driven user research, UX/UI design, digital strategy and software development services into one offering. This enables ChaiOne’s enterprise customers, which include ExxonMobil, Chevron, Exelon and more than 20% of the energy Fortune 100, to effectively develop a successful industrial digitization roadmap and quickly deliver on it, maximizing innovation ROI.

“For too long, digital innovation was driven from headquarters and left the users and operations folks out in the cold, leading to 84% failure rate of innovation initiatives,” said Mike Collins, VP of Services at ChaiOne. “The Innovation Awards recognition reinforces what many of our Energy Fortune 100 customers tell us every day. Simply put, implementing a vigorous user research process that identifies frustration points, process bottlenecks, and hidden costs is a necessary condition to develop a successful innovation initiative and roadmap. It is the only way to combine the business strategy and vision with the objectives and challenges of operations and supply chain teams and to guarantee user adoption and strong ROI. We are excited to see our approach recognized by Houston’s business and industry leaders.”
