KONCIV’s platform brings order to complex supply chains through increased visibility and collaboration.
Offshore industries operate in harsh environments with complex project logistics, making it difficult to consolidate and share logistics infrastructure.
Offshore supply chains, too, are complex. Built on a network of multinational suppliers, contractors and partners, these supply chains struggle to consolidate and centralise input from different actors. As a result, information, logistics and assets are scattered, leading to a larger carbon footprint and more costly operations.
KONCIV has created a digital platform for increased supply chain visibility. The platform uses sophisticated technology to simplify information and support logistics operations with increased predictability and better collaboration between different actors.
The platform delivers an instant overview of the flow of goods, both in terms of geographical position and real-time process control. This allows logistics supervisors to see exactly where an item is at any point in time, and why the item is at this specific location.
The platform also lets project managers collaborate with contractors and partners, enabling them to be a part of the planning process as well as operations. Through a simple notification system, every part of a supply chain can be seamlessly notified about changes or delays.
KONCIV's platform helps companies to run greener and more efficient logistics operations. Entire supply chains become more efficient through increased visibility and collaboration, while their overall carbon footprint is reduced.
The platform has an open standard, which allows for simple integration with a wide range of tracking technologies from both logistics supervisors and suppliers. More predictability and an improved flow of information also leads to better decision making and reduced risk of delays.
Lack of visibility and predictability in complex logistics operations is an issue in many industries, not just offshore. Only about 6 per cent of companies worldwide believe that they have achieved full supply chain visibility, according to the 2017 Supply Chain Worldwide Survey.
KONCIV is a joint venture between NorSea Digital and Kongsberg Digital.
