IFS (http://www.ifsworld.com/), the global enterprise applications company, announces that it is launching an employee rotation solution for the oil and gas industry in collaboration with customers Odfjell (http://www.odfjell.com/Pages/default.aspx) Drilling and Archer (http://www.archerwell.com/)—two leading oilfield service companies and existing users of IFS Applications™ for Offshore Service (http://www.ifsworld.com/en/industries/oilfield-service -software/offshore-service-companies/). Human resource management and planning in the oil and gas industry has long been characterized by a large number of local HR policies, making it a challenge for global companies to comply with national rules and regulations.
Traditionally, staffing and employee rotation in the oil and gas industry have been a complex task managed by ad-hoc, customized, or third-party solutions. To address this need, IFS is launching a new module for staffing and rotation planning as an integrated part of IFS Applications, ensuring efficient support for offshore operations.
The new IFS solution will provide companies with the ability to dynamically handle day-to-day planning of offshore staff while ensuring full compliance with industry standards. The solution offers the following benefits:
· A de facto industry standard solution for planning and tracking mission -critical HR data
· Functionality fully integrated with the IFS Applications ERP suite
IFS Scandinavia CEO
“To support the unique HR requirements in our industry, we needed a staffing and rotation solution that is fully integrated in our IFS Applications solution,” said Tor Tjeldnes, CIO Odfjell Drilling. “We want this collaboration to deliver a comprehensive Rotation planning solution fully integrated in IFS Applications.”
“We see clear benefits from having a staffing and rotation planning solution fully integrated with our ERP system,” Archer HR Director, Knut Dolmen, said. “Effectively managing employees spread out at sites subject to local regulations is an essential part of our operations, and we are confident that by working directly with IFS we will develop a true best-practice solution to support this.” Contact Information
