Logistics specialist launches product to help energy companies’ employees be safer and more
Logistics specialist to the energy sector, J J Black Consultancy Limited, has developed a new product to help oil and mining companies in Africa to improve security and productivity of their employees.
Jim Black, Managing Director of J J Black Consultancy Limited, said: “The Mobile Access Control System, known as MACS, works by employees swiping their ID card or finger using biometrics in front of a series of tablets that records their movements to and from camp and out in the field, such as at a mine, oil rig or well head.”
“The Mobile Access Control System is fully portable and works off batteries, so oil and mining companies can take this out into the jungle and other remote parts of Africa and monitor, in a single web-based system, the movement of their employees.
“The Mobile Access Control System will help energy companies to improve productivity of their employees as they will know who is working where and when, and allow them to manage their employees better.
“As the MACS helps energy companies to know where their employees are at any time, particularly in less safe environments, this will also help to improve security of those employees.”
J J Black Consultancy Limited has developed the product in partnership with Time Tronics of South Africa.
“It is a private network, so does not need to link into a company’s existing IT networks,” said Jim.
“The MACS produces a report - summarised with a simple traffic lights’ graphic - showing if a site manager needs to take any action.”
J J Black Consultancy Limited, which has offices in the UK but operates in the USA, the Caribbean, and most of Africa, specialises in developing comprehensive asset tracking and fleet management software for energy companies.
The company provides a service called ICAMS which is an asset tracking and management system for use in the aviation, maritime and ground transport sectors.
ICAMS integrates with their recently-launched service called The Single Platform System (SPS).
The Single Platform System (SPS), provides, for the first time, on one single, web-based system a comprehensive analysis and picture of all air, land, and sea assets in any geographical location. This helps oil companies respond more quickly and effectively in major emergencies.
