23 Oct 3 AREAS YOUR OIL AND GAS COMPANY CAN IMPROVE WITH THE RIGHT SOFTWARE
Advancements in technology make it easy for your company to be successful with programs like project management software. Any sized business now has access to the best solutions for their specific industry, and the oil and gas industry is no different.
In the fast-paced industry of oil and gas, it’s crucial that projects are managed correctly, especially if you’re working on more than one project at a time. As more people become involved in a project, not using a software program can be challenging and can end up costing you both time and money.
If you’re tracking your assets, pipelines, facilities, schedules and task lists on separate software, or on spreadsheets, then your company is going to fall behind the competition.
Here are our 3 ways that your oil and gas company can improve with the right software:
BETTER ACCESS TO ACCURATE DATA
When you need information fast, you don’t have time to wonder if your spreadsheet has been updated with the latest information, or if it’s been done correctly. With project management software, you can be assured that you are getting the most up to date, accurate data that is required for you to do your job.
Data is everything, and a one-time setup on a dashboard gives you convenient statistics on your business. This allows you to free up your time to be more efficient and make better business decisions.
It’s also handy to have all that accurate data, in the one place! No more searching through various folders on your desktop to try and find what you’re looking for. These days, project management software is so advanced, that it makes searching for information fast and easy.
EASY TO USE SOFTWARE PROMOTES EFFECTIVE USE
Promoting good teamwork becomes a lot easier when you have one program for all employees to use. Using project management software means that your entire team is working together and on the same page. Everyone can see what is going on at any given time and it allows upper management the ability to designate tasks to their team and to get them to collaborate on projects.
No more replying to hundreds of emails to various team members, or being frustrated because someone hasn’t emailed you back. Your software will store all communication specific to the project. It keeps everyone accountable and increases the chances of a successful completion.
Things like documents and timelines can often be lost in translation, so an easy to use oil and gas software can act as your one stop shop for all things project related.
ACCESS TO INFORMATION WHEN AND WHERE IT’S REQUIRED
One of the things we consider to be the most important when it comes to your oil and gas operation is the ability to have access to information when and where it’s required. 24/7 accessibility is crucial! Everyone works differently, and for those team members who aren’t tied down to their desk, or only have a chance to check up on their work later in the evening, they need to be able to know that they can access information wherever and whenever they need it.
This is why web-based project management software solutions are so crucial. They allow the user to access information on different operational systems (think Apple vs. Microsoft) and on mobile & tablets (via Apps). This is perfect for your team members who don’t have access to a regular desk or work predominantly on site.
Getting a new software solution can seem like a daunting task. With implementation, transferring existing or legacy data, and user training you may focus on the investment of time, rather than the overall benefit.
