Reducing Admin Hours through Better Data Management
Labour hours in the field are tracked meticulously, but what about your hard-working office staff? Data management hours can stack up, and our clients have found poor data management practices can contribute up to two full-time positions worth of work to even small organizations. When software is used to take the pressure off office staff, those hours can go towards streamlined, profitable activities.
At Long Run Exploration, a forward-thinking Oil and Gas company based out of Calgary, one HSE manager was able to cut her remediation planning time in half, and get better results even in the reduced time. Those hours have been put towards more productive work than tedious data management.
For Oil and Gas companies, increased transparency means you can more easily see that there have been no significant overbillings, unused funds, or other unused savings opportunities. There is a huge benefit to both client and supplier in with this open communication: misunderstandings can be cleared up with data that is readily available, or prevented entirely.
Proactive steps taken by a service consultant, such as having the right tools in place to reduce admin hours and provide greater visibility into project spend, provide benefits on both sides of the client-consultant relationship. Transparency eliminates the need for expensive, time consuming audits by keeping project data, cost, and progress visible. The consultant doesn’t have to charge as many admin hours or spend as much time reporting, and the Oil and Gas client gets peace of mind.
