Insite offers a wide range of monitoring and reporting tools catering for the niche requirements of offshore industries.
Our Operations module enables near real-time HQ visibility of all day-to-day commercial activity for all your remote sites. This allows HQ to easily monitor remote operations from both an activity and revenue perspective giving a clear and concise global overview of your remote sites. Offshore, the OIM/onboard management have all the data a simple mouse-click away.
Global transparency and accountability in all report logging and associated action-tracking plus a powerful permit-to-work and risk management features make Insite HSEQ industry-leading.
Project planning, financial modelling, an integrated 'active' vessel schedule along with detailed bid management functionality make our Sales module unique.
Logging of all secondary activity from all departments, aiding in the creation of reports and keeping everyone on the same page wherever they may be in your organisation.
Insite Offshore is a Wilce & Co. product and is designed to work for widely distributed companies who have their operations spread all across the globe and network communications between their remote sites cannot always be guaranteed. It brings together the remote sites, linking them with each other and with headquarters giving global transparency. All of this is done while working at local network speeds at the remote sites and with near real-time background synchronisation.
Insite Offshore is a web-based information system and uses a modular design which allows it to cater specifically to individual departments while also pulling together data from multiple modules to give the most complete picture possible. This modular design also allows each part to stand alone or be combined with any number of the other modules to provide an unparalleled level of flexibility.
Our HSEQ, Operations Logging, and Sales/Bid Management modules have been used on hundreds of projects and are currently deployed on numerous vessels across the world. In addition to these live modules we have a Departmental Logging module ready for deployment and, in the pipeline, we have a Crewing Module and an ERP module designed with development due to start in late 2015/early 2016.
Insite offers multiple modules tailoured for different areas and departments of your organisation. It has been designed for the offshore industries from the ground-up and is, we believe, unique.
It would be relatively unusual for any single user to utilise all the data via their modules of interest but the power of an integrated system means that under the covers we are leveraging data from disparate areas of your organisation so that others benefit from that shared knowledge.
Robust security ensures that only those with relevant access are allowed direct access to given areas of the application.
Please review the details of our modules below.
Because Insite has been designed from the ground up to be specifically suited to the challenges of the offshore industry, it does not require the lengthy customisation process that would normally be associated with trying to add a replication mechanism to a system not originally designed to support one. The only customisation required with Insite is to accommodate differences in how each of our clients operates, not to deal with the particular requirements of the industry.
Insite offers a huge amount of flexibility, from a large number of quickly configurable options all the way to custom-made reports and extra functionality which can be designed and built to exact customer specifications. Customisation is particularly powerful in Insite because the system is built to meet the needs of offshore maritime companies meaning that changes are not fighting against an underlying design built for a different industry.
Many of the areas that differ between contractors are already customisable through a series of configuration options. HSE report types, workflow permissions, drop-down list contents, and many other settings can be altered using the pre-existing controls already provided. Even the colour scheme of the system is customisable to match your companyâs branding. Indeed, it is normal for the system to look like your own system.
If you have requirements that go further than what is available through the in-built configuration options then we are happy to provide further customisation on a consultancy basis. If there are particular data reports that your company requires then we can usually provide these relatively simply if the relevant data is already available by tapping into the advanced search and reporting functionality already in place. If the data on which the report depends is not already available then we can also add additional data fields to any of the logging features within Insite and then derive the reports from that data.
Testimonial from Chris Griffin
Insite has been a resounding success, is easy to use and our reporting levels have grown quarter on quarter. The system is intuitive, required little training and was delivered on schedule. For almost 4 years of live operation we have had complete EHSQ reporting transparency across our fleet. Coupled with powerful dashboards, it is easy to see all aspects of our EHSQ reporting. The support provided by Wilce&Co. has been very good, often exceeding expectations during periods when requirements were being amended from original scope. I believe Insite is an industry-leading solution and I know of no other EHSQ reporting system that can rival it.
Testimonial from Susan Penty
Wilce&Co worked closely with us to customise and deliver a QHSE and Operations reporting system specific to our type of seismic operations. The system is functional and intuitive requiring little end user training, and hence removes much of the reporting resistance often encountered in an organisation. Despite the small size of Wilce&Co, support has been excellent, with fast responses at all times leading to smooth implementation of both the QHSE and Operations modules, despite âgo liveâ being during a main holiday period. We are hoping that the planned development of a purchasing/asset tracking and planned maintenance module specific to the seismic industry comes soon enough for us also to adopt.
Q. What requirements are there for running Insite across my company?
A. There is a firm requirement that all remote sites have satellite links (or similar regular network communication) between each site and the company headquarters onshore. Additionally, we need only a Windows server machine onboard to host the database. The application can live on any hardware and client access is via a standard web browser.
Q. How much does the system cost?
A. A very difficult answer to give accurately as it depends on so many factors. Every single client we have has differing needs to reflect their internal organisation structure so there is no 'one-size-fits-all'. However, what we are able to state with confidence is that we are the most cost-effective solution of any providers in what is a very niche area. As everyone within the offshore industry recognises, the current financial climate is not the sort of environment generally associated with capital expenditure on new IT systems. However, to help during the current turbulent times we are able to offer attractive terms which may not prohibit the procurement of the Insite Offshore system or some of it's modules. If you are interested in Insite Offshore then it's probably worth getting in touch for an initial no-obligation chat to ensure your needs and what Insite offers are indeed aligned. The contact form below can be used to get in touch or simply mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q. We have experienced poor support from 3rd party companies in the past, how can we be sure that this pattern won't be repeated with your system?
A. We pride ourselves on a service-centric approach to business and we know that our existing clients value this approach. Testimonials from some of our customers should also alleviate any concerns you may have on this issue.
Q. On a similar note, we have experienced situations where at the outset we are told a system can do everything we want but the reality after implementation is very different. How can we be sure this will not happen with Insite?
A. Yes, we've seen that sort of thing too. When you talk with us you will be dealing directly with the system developers and we will never say the system can do something that it cannot. However, we are always willing to listen to new requirements which will improve the system so if Insite doesn't currently have a particular feature you require then it may be possible to add these but we will always be clear about what Insite can and cannot do.
Q. Is it possible to see a demonstration of Insite?
A. Yes, of course. In the first instance, a discussion should establish if Insite is the correct fit for your company. If we have established this to be the case then we can give a remote demonstration where we manufacture data for you and put your corporate branding over the top of Insite. Alternatively, if you prefer a face-to-face meeting, you are welcome to visit our offices in Scotland or we can visit you at your head-quarters. In the case of the latter option then all we ask is that our travel expenses are covered. These expenses are refunded if/when you eventually go on to purchase the system.
