HESS IMPROVES PRODUCTIVITY AND
EMPLOYEE SATISFACTIONmInventory

Global Energy Producer Improves Productivity and Operational Efficiency
Challenge

Hess Corporation desired a materials management technology that improved accuracy and efficiency across their entire supply chain.

This included connectivity to onshore warehouses and yards, and to remote locations, such as ships and offshore platforms.

The need for paperless operations was key, as was ease of use and the ability for minor configuration changes to be made as business needs dictated.

Action

Hess chose Innovapptive’s mInventory application to reduce manual data entry and inaccuracies and help remote and offshore locations perform key warehouse processes, even when network connectivity was temporarily unavailable.

The solution was able to support the execution of key warehouse processes on mobile devices including paperless operations and mobile printing capabilities.

Result

With the implementation of Innovapptive’s mInventory, Hess realized improvements in two key areas: Productivity and Operation Efficiency. 

Hess has effectively eliminated paper-based processes, enhanced operational efficiency, and improved user satisfaction. Hess has also realized significant improvements in process time for good receipts and reductions in process time of cycle counts.
