What do you like best?

Seisware is intuitive but powerful. You can often figure out how to do things yourself.

Updates are ongoing and easy to install. These people listen, discuss, incorporate your ideas. That’s the secret of their success... founded by programmers (as opposed to the usual: GeoScientist hack) surrounded by world class Geophysicists who needed solutions. Seisware geophysics is the culmination of decades of real world adjustments by experts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Geophysics has become less simple as complex processes were added. As most software a professional uses the 80/20 rule.... you use 20% of the functionality 80% of your time. It would be helpful to have more short video training clips which pop up to “remind you” how the complex multi step process available are intended to proceed. Searching HELP works but you need to know what to search for. In your face Pop ups you dismiss are the answer. Good thing the support line is so perfect. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Arrange for a trial.

Geophysics is available as a annual license.

Hourly and monthly “pay as you go” is available through specific agreement with their business partner. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My career has covered seismic interpretation, processing, now advisory on O&G assets A&D. When I assist review teams who fly in to review the proprietary seismic, they need to “work the seismic” review picks, confirm proposed drilling locations. This product is so intuitive a few moments of intro session is all they need to get going. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I have been using this software for more than 15 years. Seisware is my go-to tool for 2D and 3D seismic mapping and integration of these datasets. There is no other product on the market that can do these tasks as well as Seisware can. If I have any issues with the software, the support team is fast and responsive and has me sorted in no time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I sometimes have challenges mapping faults, especially in complex situations, the functionality is a bit limited. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In onshore settings with various vintages and types of (2D/3D) seismic data, Seisware is the best at bringing together these sometimes disparate datasets for a cohesive interpretation. I have used the software in extensional, compressional and passive geological setttings Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Seisware is very intuitive to use. It is simple to use yet provides all the bells and whistles that are required in a seismic interpretation package. The Help line is also the best help line of any software program I have used. They pride themselves with being available when you call and to helping you solve any problems you may be experiencing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is not really anything to dislike about Seisware that I can see. I have been using Seisware since October 1999. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Seisware for basic seismic interpretation, mapping, depth conversions, basic data manipulation/post-stack processing and presentation material. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The upside of using Geophysics by Seisware is depth conversion and contouring of diverse datasets. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The downside of using Geophysics by Seisware is the lack of geobody creation in SEGY calculator or Cross Plotting. Consequently data must be moved back and fourth from third party software like Hampson Russell which does not have a canned interface with Seisware. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Rapid comparison of SEGY data sets relative to well data reveals trends and ambiguities in the data. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Very intuitive with plenty of tools to help any geoscientist make a thorough interpretation Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I would love the ability to perform inversions or model-based depth conversions, but understand that it's already delivering a lot at this price point. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Everything from simple interpretations to attribute work and volumetric calculations. It's extremely convenient to be able to do so much using the same software package. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is easy to use and very intuitive. It is so well developed that the workflows bridge the gap between geology and geophysics, as well as engineering. From seismic interpretation to full field development - I do not have to go to other software packages to do the full cycle workflow. Also - The support is excellent. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I cannot point to anything specific it does what I need it to do. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
