ENTERPRISE GROUP DEPLOYS PROPRIETARY ASSET TRACKING & DISPATCH SOFTWARE “STAR” TO LOWER COSTS AND INCREASE MARGINS
ST. ALBERT, Alberta, April 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enterprise Group, Inc. (the “Company” or “Enterprise”) (TSX: E), a consolidator of services to the energy sector; focused primarily on specialized equipment rental, announced today that it has implemented its proprietary dispatch & asset tracking software known as “Star” to further cut costs and improve margins.
Star, tracks and reports utilized assets, which provides the Fleet Manager the ability to ensure the highest level of service to the client: In turn, lower costs while delivering maximum equipment performance.
When Enterprise Group (TSX: E) acquired Westar Oilfield Rentals in 2014, the management team was working on a business management & dispatch software.
After exhaustive and unsuccessful efforts in sourcing an effective software solution, it was apparent that the group needed to develop this system in house. Enterprise continued to fund and upgrade the project resulting in this unique and proprietary technology asset, critical to the profitability and cost mitigation of all the Company’s subsidiaries.
"With the components developed, we began process mapping our existing business operations. As a result, we were able to considerably reduce our administrative costs by automating many of the human elements," stated Des O'Kell SVP of Enterprise Group. "Furthermore, with its implementation, the cost benefits that emerged from asset tracking are substantial.”
This approach keeps the customer up and running and ensures other expended revenue and protection of the asset. The software is comprised of 18 components that work together and exchange information over a central database. Early results confirmed improved metrics including lowering costs and raising margins.
With Star successfully deployed in all our rental divisions, Enterprise Group now has a proprietary and custom software designed explicitly for its business.
