Certification Tracking for Oilfield Contractors

As the price of oil and rig count gradually increase, we see the demand for well qualified and low-risk labor steadily follows in sequence. However, when ramping up personnel to stay in stride with operations it is essential to ensure your company is hiring an experienced, compliant workforce.

One speed bump in this process is that operators are typically restricted to hiring vendors only from their approved vendor list. But what exactly does that process look like?

Years ago, we learned that the majority of the industry is managing vendors through winded spreadsheets or clunky out-of-date software. This led corporations to pay thousands of dollars for a glorified filing cabinet that spit out a letter grade for each vendor. The red flag with these systems is that vendors are being graded on a company scale, but the work is being performed on an individual basis. So, how does a supervisor ensure that each individual of a contract workforce is properly vetted?

With RigUp, the solutions are automated and simple. Contract labor sourced through the RigUp platform ensures a full 100% compliance with operator specifications. RigUp users are empowered to oversee and ensure that each individual approved to work on location has the most up-to-date training and certifications. And never miss a step with our proprietary automated workforce updates. Rest easy knowing that every hire is the right hire.

Certification tracking also provides advantages for hiring managers looking to onboard experienced, certified personnel. For example, a hiring manager on RigUp has the ability to filter the marketplace by specific certifications, such as well control certification, Safeland, SafeGulf or RigPass. The RigUp Contractor Marketplace ranks and promotes only the most certified individuals in your labor search.

At RigUp, we provide the best experience for hiring managers by populating our marketplace with A+ service providers. In this environment, service providers are empowered to get greater visibility through highlighting their qualifications and certifications on the RigUp platform. The individuals who boost their profiles through this medium are the same ones who are getting the calls, interviews and new jobs.

RigUp’s 3-point check that verifies the bid, field tickets, and invoice

At RigUp, we’re building product features that streamline purchasing and payment for both E&P companies and service companies. We help engineers spend more time on what they were hired to do and less time on paperwork, invoice verification and other time consuming administrative tasks. We help service providers find new opportunities to win business and get paid faster for their work so they can grow in any commodity environment.

 E&P companies should be able to work with any vendor that meets their quality standards without worrying about the arduous MSA processes.

When you schedule a job with a service company through RigUp, we take care of confirming an existing MSA. If there isn’t one, the service company can utilize our MSA and custom-built insurance solution to ensure 100% coverage. The service company’s bid is used to check the accuracy of the field ticket and invoice. No more guessing as to what the job was actually supposed to cost.

Service companies have the ability to push updates, change requests, and signed field tickets to your job dashboard in real time, allowing you to track the job as it happens. Once the invoice is ready for submission, service companies can submit it through our simple and intuitive invoice submission portal. We verify the invoice against both the field ticket and the bid to ensure accuracy of cost and scope.

We call this our 3-point check: bid, field ticket, and invoice all in alignment before it reaches your desk. You’ll receive an invoice submission with a cover sheet outlining our verification, our guarantee to you that you’re paying exactly what you should and not a penny more.

We believe in a fair and transparent market where the best companies are free to do business in an efficient and safe manner.
