Navman Wireless Collaborates with Collabro to Enhance Tracking Oil and Gas Personnel

Navman Wireless, an industry leader in fleet tracking, is teaming up with Collabro Group,the exclusive provider of the Vantage POB personnel logistics system in the oil and gas industry.This partnership aims to add to their capability of tracking onshore vehicles. According to the company, their enhanced software will allow Collabro to improve safety, responsibility, and emergency response procedures for oil and gas operations.

The company says that the vehicle tracking systems inform dedicated monitoring teams of every vehicles status and location, whether they are moving to or from offshore sites, working on an onshore site, or in transit.

Tom Kennedy, Collabro Group Joint CEO said,as quoted on the Navman website,“This partnership provides our clients with vastly improved personnel tracking and journey management capabilities by covering a segment of the workday we haven’t addressed before [which is] time spent.”Therecords provided by theGPS systems allows Collabro to identify information in real time to make sure every person on record is accounted for at all times.Both companiescan track the location of both offshore oil workers and onshore personnel via dedicated teams monitoring all active trackers.Navman will be able to track them even if they are traveling between onshore facilities, driving to get supplies whenever they are on duty and using a company vehicle.

According to the company,70 major national and international oil and gas companies, tracking 72,000 personnel across 470 installations, use the Vantage POB system. Navman’s system solutions can simplify the entire process of keeping track of every single one of them, no matter where they are.

Safety is the number one priority of both companies.Oil and gas rigs are among the most dangerous work places in the world, as confirmed by Navman Wireless Vertical Market Product Manager Andrew Hintz. Hintz repeatedly stresses on the company website that knowing where workers are is the most important aspect of safety compliance. Fleet tracking technologies provide companies the capability of making sure that their employees are safe whenever they are on offshore rigs or onshore facilities.
