Precision Drilling Niksu support centre near Edmonton, Alberta, provides maintenance, repairs and overall (MRO) to the $900-million-plus company’s equipment. Managing the project with Excel was arduous, time-consuming and expensive. Lee Letawsky, parts technician and purchaser, was forced to manually update item counts, physically locate pieces of inventory and had no accessible record of a component’s age, usage history or availability. This process was inefficient and the cost of duplicate orders and overnight shipping charges soon added up.
With Wasp Inventory Control, Precision Drilling can instantly access accurate data on inventory status and location, eliminating unnecessary reordering of parts and overnight shipping fees. Further, Precision can create reports to track suppliers’ delivery times, as well as usage of parts and equipment, for predictable pending and ordering.
