ShareCat - UK Hub

Project summary

Sharecat Solutions have, with some of the UKCS's leading operators and contractors, co-developed a concept dubbed 'UK Hub'. The Hub will create business efficiencies and generate cost reductions by the centralisation and standardisation of a single unique set of supplier data to be used by all operators, contractors and suppliers.

The Hub will enable greater collaboration between companies in the UKCS Oil and Gas Industry by collecting, validating and maintaining data and documents for equipment and parts during the procurement process in a standard format. This will create a single source of equipment information that can be shared across the industry.

By enabling the re-use of supplier information, the Hub will dramatically reduce duplication of effort and as standardisation is ensured, information can be used to support many big data industry initiatives including joint inventories, surplus stock trading and maintenance trends etc.
