New Zealand Software Tracks Contractors At Los Angeles BP
Wellington-based Work Technology New Zealand Ltd, recently completed deployment of its locally produced software at British Petroleum’s Los Angeles oil refinery site – enabling full integration of all direct costs associated with third party contractors.
Work Technology Corporation New Zealand Manager, Mark Ascroft, says the Contractor Cost Tracking System (CCTS) captures all labour, equipment rentals, scheduled material charges and all other third party charges associated with the more than 2000 contractors working at the BP site.
“The system provides contractor and owner approvals, set up and maintenance of schedule of rates and automatic invoicing and payment,” says Mr Ascroft.
“In a first for Work Technology, the system was developed in New Zealand as an extension of our Work Tech TimeTM, Time and Attendance software installed at many locations in North America.
“The Contractor Cost Tracking System bridges the gap of current EMS/CMMS systems by providing a user-friendly front end for collection of all cost data.”
The system exchanges information with any other corporate management system including EMS, CMMS, Financial, Accounting, Payroll and Human Resources.
Mr Ascroft says the system is designed to be highly flexible and interact with other systems to collect and report information in a real-time, actionable form.
