COMPETENCY

Having the right competency is critical when scheduling personnel for work that requires a specific skill set.

Perseus lets you, the customer, define and specify what your requirements for competency are. Add your own job types with role specific requirements and competency levels, then use our powerful search engine to find the right resources based on availability, competency and your requirements.

Perseus not only registers competencies but can also store your personnel certifications and documents.

This flexible structure makes it easy to integrate Perseus with your existing systems and get the right person to the right job at the right time.

You can also extend Perseus with our CV module to create, maintain and update CV’s for all your personnel in one place and then export all or only selected relevant information to PDF with ease for tendering or other purposes.

Perseus ensures best practice for personnel scheduling by defining a need and allocates resources accordingly.

INCREASED WORKFORCE UTILIZATION

For many offshore businesses, the cost of personnel is one of the largest expenses and even small improvements in utilization can have a big impact on the bottom line. Perseus has the possibility to define and focus on key performance indicators (KPI) for the utilization of personnel availability period and thus minimize the use of overtime. No other single measure provides greater impact on your bottom line.

Perseus can help you take control over the utilization of your personnel.

BETTER DECISION MAKING

In order to reduce spending on overtime, you need control over your information on availability periods, required time off and overtime for your personnel. Effective documentation of your personnel utilization makes it easier to plan the proper staffing and ensures you have a full overview when critical questions must be answered, such as:

  • Is it more profitable to hire personnel during busy periods?
  • Is the activity steadily increasing or is there seasonality?
  • Is it more profitable to hire more personnel to reduce the use of overtime?
  • Should personnel be transferred temporarily or permanently across departments?

Perseus quickly provides you with accurate and complete information that you need, to make smart, informed decisions and help reduce your costs.

Perseus has excellent help and support.

All our applications use JIRA Service Desk by Atlassian to ensure our customers have the very best help available.
