THE CHALLENGES

The first challenge is to provide budget control systems for each project to provide alerts when sales achievement exceeds certain percentage from budget so sales team could take necessary

actions to get addendum of contract to make sure all rig activities are collectible on contract. The Budget control systems should have approval functionality for every request of budget realization and budget amendment. Report of budget realization of each project is one of performance indicators among many.

The second challenge is to provide daily status summary report via SMS or email to some people in top management. Today’s Sales, Month to Date Sales, Total Sales Achievement, Budget, and % of Budget of each project are created on a daily basis and sent directly to end user’s mobile phone via SMS or email. Some users also require information on Operating Daily Rate in percentage as a daily performance indicator. All rig activities such as full-day operation, moving, stand by with/without crew, repair, etc. should be recorded on a daily basis on the next day as daily sales revenue.

The third challenge is to automate procurement business process using the same system as used for Financials. Purchase Requests can be created from all offices. All Purchase Order will be processed at Central Procurement in multiple currency from Head Office with ship-to instruction to end-user’s office. Purchase Request & Purchase Order approval process is done online so users can have real-time access of approval status of each request. Purchase Receipt of each order can be created from each warehouse and printed as goods receiving report for supplier. All supplier invoice receipts will be entered as Request for Payment transaction and integrated to Account Payable module in Financials Systems.

The fourth challenge is inventory management of spare parts & fuel. Managing spare parts with more than 1,000 part IDs need easy-to-maintain inventory systems. The system should cover processes from Request of Part, Issue from inventory or link to procurement, Material/Part Consumption, up to inventory status tracking. Users from each warehouse can create transactions only from their own site, but they can have information of stock-on-hand for all other sites. All spare-parts and fuel consumption that is charged to Fixed Asset for running and maintenance expenses will be allocated to each Asset ID.

The fifth challenge is assets management for all fixed asset types with more than 1,000 Asset IDs. The system should help the company in tracking asset latest location, caretaker & project use.

Depreciation expenses need to be allocated automatically to each Project ID, so the management may know how much asset-related expenses have been spent on each project to decide whether to keep using the asset or rent it from a subcontractor.

The last challenge is cost analysis. All expense/cost code should be posted into each Project ID. Comprehensive analysis of contribution margin (sales less direct expenses) with comparison to budget for each project should be automatically provided after monthly financial closing.
