Case Study 5

Downsizing an oil company's energy trading operation

The corporation had maintained a large department to service secure trading transactions between group companies, and with other energy companies throughout the world, for energy products, chemicals, and plastics.

We developed and implemented a software solution to allow traders to enter their trades directly from their office system.   The application carried out their unique validation processes automatically, and transmitted trades to recipients without manual involvement from the secure trading transactions department, allowing a significant downsizing.   We successfully rolled out this application to thousands of users across group companies.

This led to other work with the company, including the development of an internal banking application that saved staff resource from Group Finance, a central security application, and the rollout of a new office system on which we implemented many client specific efficiency features.

Not only were huge savings enabled from the payroll, but productivity grew at the same time.
