ARCOS solutions for shift management and response allow you to digitize manual shift filling, swapping and bidding processes and focus on what’s most important – safety and productivity.
FOCUS ON PRODUCTIVITY & SAFETY – NOT PHONE CALLS AND SPREADSHEETS
The ARCOS Resource Management platform is specifically designed to help oil and gas companies manage their workforce. From shift management on a daily basis to emergency response, we can help you automate manual processes that take up too much time, empower your employees and ensure your employees are focused on safety and productivity.
MAXIMIZE YOUR DAILY OPERATIONS AND GET SUPERVISORS BACK TO CRITICAL TASKS
Duke Energy was suffering from a slow and inconsistent callout process that was not only slowing restoration times, but was also generating bargaining unit grievances due to inconsistent interpretations of union rules. Supervisors were spending too much time on scheduling problems and not enough time on priority tasks.
See how we helped one of our nation’s largest utility power plants save hours on shift management every day.

EMPOWER YOUR EMPLOYEES

- Improve attendance, reduce absences, and fill open shifts by giving flexibility

- Maximize your existing investments in HR systems, and provide real-time and historical data to streamline payroll accuracy
