4WARD: Efficient Execution


By: Kevin Biringer

As the price of oil has declined in the past few years, many of you may have personally experienced some of our customer’s responses: deferring projects with marginal economics, renegotiating our contracts to achieve better rates, and testing new contracting strategies to become more efficient and reduce cost in the system. 

The strategy has involved looking at the way we currently operate across the company, with a focus on:

  • Less manual, more automated – finding opportunities to take frequent and repetitive tasks and automate these functions
  • Reduce rework – identifying and correcting errors as early in the system as possible
  • Integrated – following similar processes and sharing resources across the different divisions
  • Timely billing – getting paid quicker
  • Visibility – creating reports to see when and where expenses occur

You may be thinking of tasks in your own group that fit into the categories above; we are all challenged with finding ways to continue to improve and become more cost effective, which ultimately will enable us to be more competitive in winning work.
