Reduce risk and propel opportunities with OnBase solutions for utility companies
For the Compton Petroleum Corporation, each day an oil well is not in production equals thousands of dollars in delayed revenue. In order to minimize the time involved in the Decision to Drill process, the Alberta, Canada-based company needed a solution to improve its business processes and shorten the timeline from initial scope to production.
After exploring vertically oriented solutions designed for the oil and gas industry as well as enterprise content management (ECM) solutions that could automate paper processes, Compton Petroleum realized it needed a solution that provided the flexibility to meet the organization’s business processes without requiring fundamental operating changes.
That’s when the company selected OnBase, Hyland Software’s ECM solution suite.
“Whatever we pull out of the ground, we can sell,” says Paul Parzen, manager of IT, risk and audit. “Any days you can trim off your cycle from concept through to having a well on production is money in your pocket. . . . OnBase captures the essence of what IT must bring to the table for business – solutions that allow the business to execute more efficiently and faster, with better information.”
With OnBase, utilities companies:
- Scale their solution across corporate and branch locations while managing information in a central repository
- Promote faster inter-departmental processing, allowing staff to make better, more informed decisions
- Provide users with mobile access to information on their phones and tablets, allowing them to work on projects no matter the time or their location
OnBase enables utilities companies to meet the needs of each department – including Accounting and Finance, Human Resources and Legal – with one easily supported application, letting them start with a single department or solution and expand as time, goals and budget permit.
