Collabro announces the successful launch of its shared, cloud-hosted Personnel On Board (POB) and travel management system for the Australian Energy industry. It is the first locally-hosted service of its kind in the region and is set to modernise the sector's landscape by improving industry-wide infrastructures and working practices. Safety and efficiency improvements are already being seen with the provision of a shared centralised personnel database that has end-to-end travel management abilities.
The transition and acceptance period for all Operators who joined at launch is now complete since the service officially went live on Sunday, 14th May 2023, with the first helicopter departing from a regional Airport in Victoria at 5:15 am.
There has been widespread adoption among major International Oil Companies (IOCs) in the country, with the move having been a resounding success receiving positive feedback from all users.
Designed through collaboration with key local Operators and utilising CGI’s industry gold standard Vantage POB software as the core component, the solution incorporates Collabro’s proprietary Toolkit and a range of innovations to meet the enhanced data protection needs and unique logistical challenges of the Australian Energy Industry.
Collabro’s new Australian shared service provides unparalleled availability and additional benefits for users, including;
- Regional cloud-hosting with data security policies built to meet local compliance obligations, Australian Privacy legislation and GDPR.
- Australian-based helpdesk providing expert support.
- The ability to manage door-to-door travel across multiple modes of transport, both onshore and offshore.
- Extensive and customisable integration options for improved automation and digitalisation, including with incumbent ERP and Planning systems.
- Collaborative working practices that add value across all user companies supported by consultancy, facilitation, training, user forums and information exchange.
Collabro's success in Australia builds upon its 20+ year history of facilitating collaborative approaches to software design, along with its extensive experience in designing, installing, supporting and deploying similar shared personnel logistics systems around the world. Over the coming months, following this successful launch, Collabro has confirmed a number of other enhancements and improvements are in the pipeline for the Australian Service.
