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.

“This enables frontline managers to make business decisions based on the highest quality up-to-date information, delivering immediate benefits to both client and contractor.
“Such benefits include knowing today what really happened yesterday and the ability to control costs by building the budget from accurate experience, not from guesswork.”

Mr Ascroft says Work Technology Corporation and Work Technology New Zealand Ltd will make the CCTS system available to other major commercial customers in April 2002 through its sales channels.

Work Technology Corporation, based in Wellington (with affiliates in the
USA) provides products and support services for distributed work management systems to large and small companies world-wide.

Its suite of software products and services is used to complete the automation and integration of work management tasks.
