ABERDEEN-BASED software, training and consultancy specialist Monitor announced a contract win yesterday for the oil industry worth a six-figure sum.
The deal is with Sigma 3, a joint-venture company which provides integrated services for oil major Shell in the North Sea.
Monitor has provided a custom-built software package to streamline and improve efficiency across payroll and invoicing, resulting in significant cost reductions.
Monitor managing director Ian McKenzie said: “The team at Monitor customised and applied our own mpower software to allow Sigma 3 to reduce the time taken on producing invoices and timesheets.
“As a result, the Monitor software processes more than 1,500 timesheets weekly for this project alone, making sure thousands of offshore workers get paid accurately and on time.
“One of the key aims of introducing the software was to streamline the information flow between the three joint-venture companies as well as providing the customer, Shell, with the ability to access key management information.”
Neil Lindsay, Sigma 3 commercial manager, said: “Introducing mpower to Sigma 3 provides the project with up-to-date technology, including a future upgrade path that ensures we can meet the demands of the project.”
