Maintaining safety, insurance, quality and regulatory information on contractors and suppliers can often be a strain on internal resources. ISN streamlines these processes, saving time and improving safety standards. Hiring Clients use ISNetworld to standardize contractor management across multiple sites and geographic regions, clearly communicate requirements and expectations and exchange data with other internal systems.

Operators and Contractors view their supply chain as an integral extension of their organisations, and strive for a transparent and efficient collaboration with best in class suppliers. The Achilles FPAL community helps to create business opportunities for suppliers in a collaborative, neutral environment whilst ensuring compliance to industry standards and reducing risks across the supply chain for buying organisations. Achilles FPAL identifies, evaluates and provides pre-qualification information about suppliers on behalf of major buyers in oil & gas. Lower oil & gas prices have put a renewed focus on the need to control cost and increase industry collaboration. Achilles FPAL makes a key contribution on both these important issues. Established in 1996 by the UK oil & gas industry, FPAL was formed following an industry initiative known as CRINE (Cost Reduction in the New Era) which recommended the need for improved supply chain efficiencies and development of a centralised system which provides standardised information and helps to reduce procurement costs by 30%. The Achilles FPAL community now serves the procurement needs of the wider European oil & gas market, whilst maintaining firm roots within North Sea operations with an industry based Steering Committee of Operators, Contractors and suppliers working in collaboration to promote a fair and transparent supply chain. As Achilles FPAL expands throughout Europe, Operators in the Netherlands have formed the Dutch Purchaser User Group (DPUG) and developed an effective and collaborative approach towards the use of Achilles FPAL within their own supply chains and this is shared by a Common Policy Statement
