RSPH and IS3 Join Forces to Support Oil & Gas Industry

1 July 2019 – Software implementation houses Industry Software3 (IS3) and RSPH (Rifle-Shot Performance Holdings) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding that is intended to benefit the manufacturing, utilities, refinery and mining sectors in Sub-Saharan Africa.

A unique combination of plant-specific and enterprise-wide offerings will, for the first time, allow for the provision of a unified supply chain management system that will enable visibility and optimisation of the entire supply chain, from tanker – to refinery – to pump.

The benefits of this combination are better demand forecasting, better planning, elimination of price-dependent over-purchasing, more efficient processing, and commitment on delivery times to gantries and forecourts.
 
By interconnecting with existing ERP’s, the cost of replacing systems is eliminated, and processes are enhanced, thereby delivering better investor returns, and total visibility of the entire operation at Board Level. Collaborative decision-making combines the expertise of each stage of processing, for the benefit of the organisation’s triple bottom line and, for the first time ever in the oil and gas industry, decisions can now be accurate, auditable, transparent and available on demand.
 
Most oil & gas companies are involved througout the full cycle of mining, chemical and energy production, all of which have disparate and complicated models to ensure profitability of each separate entity. The thought of combining them at an operational level would normally not only be considered impossible, but also counter-productive.

Having a unified supply chain management system in place however is imperative for accurate and meaningful business planning and optimisation. Not only does this allow allows seamless transfer of data, introduction of new workflows that eliminate manual tasks and allow cross-boundary collaboration, but having a unified view ensures that the pockets of sub-optimal performance are exposed and can be dealt with. For the first time planning, scheduling, assay management and supply distribution can all share the same understanding of the plant and the business, and allows for a single source of knowledge across global locations. The benefit? Profitability.

The primary reason for the collaboration is to benefit companies in the manufacturing, mining and beneficiation sectors specifically. These are the only industries with a 10-times downstream multiplier effect. The team’s focus is to grow the South African economy by enhancing, developing and empowering these industries to the point where they are profitable enough to create new jobs, export and generate the economic growth this continent so desperately needs.
