Aibel is a leading service company within the oil, gas and offshore wind industries. They provide customers with optimal and innovative solutions within engineering, construction, modifications and maintenance throughout a project's entire life cycle.
Aibel plays an important role in the energy industry, supporting both gas, oil and offshore wind platforms. They have provided services for more than a century, meeting requirements throughout the project lifecycle.
The organisation has 4,000 employees in 8 locations across 3 different countries.
So how does a company that is spread across some of the most remote locations in the world, including oil rigs and offshore wind platforms manage to communicate immediately and clearly with all of its 4,000 employees?
workplaceon, that’s how.
The team at Aibel chose workplaceon primarily because of its ease of use. They needed a solution that enabled them to quickly onboard their employees onto the platform and get them up and running in no time. Not only that, but they needed a tool that would allow them to give their employees targeted, timely and accurate communication for regular company bulletins, team news and updates and in particular, for emergencies.
Employees at Aibel aren’t strangers to remote work - they work in some of the most remote locations in the world - but at a time when data, processes and information changes like the wind, emails and phone calls just don’t cut it any longer.
Powered by workplaceon, Aibel’s new intranet makes it easy for employees around the world to collaborate, share knowledge and access company information.
During the onboarding process, all new employees are prompted to confirm their team and department, as well as their interests and hobbies. This ensures all colleagues are placed within the correct groups so that communication from managers and executives gets to the right person at the right time.
No more blanket emails to the whole company and no more messing about with email groups.
Managers and communications teams can mark updates as mandatory, so that colleagues not only get notifications via their preferred channels but they’re also prompted to read the update the next time they log in. Managers can receive a report detailing who has read these messages to ensure compliance with the latest policies and procedures.
Rapid, simplified access to information increases employee productivity, while having one repository for standards and best practices helps to reduce errors and improves quality control.
Aibel relies on workplaceon to help communicate with every colleague no matter what device they use to do their job. With a customisable web application and a mobile app that’s compatible with both iOS and Android devices, employees can get the information they need on whatever device they choose.
The platform can be configured in many different ways depending on the access and security needs of the organisation. Using our white-label offering, Aibel chose to make their mobile app available in public app stores so that employees could download the app to their personal devices but added the security of Single Sign-on so that access was managed by their internal IT team.
