oilrig VeeTEC sxcQognify, formerly NICE Security, solutions can aid an oil and gas company to remotely monitor and manage security, thus helping save millions of dollars

Citing an case, the company said that one of the world’s largest unnamed companies in the oil and gas sector saved more than US$1.2mn due to security solutions from Qognify – and it anticipates even greater savings in 2016.

According to Qognify, the client now uses Qognify Situator and NiceVision to remotely monitor sites including asset storage locations, transportation hubs, shipping and receiving locations, manufacturing facilities, education centres and administration buildings.

By moving work that was previously conducted by on-site security guards to the global security operations center (GSOC), the company has cut costs 15 per cent. Situator connects and correlates access control, intercoms, analytics, cameras, and other systems and sensors, and brings real-time situational awareness to the GSOC so operators can manage day-to-day security tasks more efficiently and effectively.

Situator’s efficient incident management capabilities enabled the company to bring an outsourced critical response hotline in house and its remote monitoring capabilities and automated workflows, the company has reduced the average time to process a vehicle through a gate from five minutes to three minutes.

Situator’s automated workflows and ability to keep detailed and accurate logs on delivery vehicles and visitors also made it easier for the company to comply with chemical facility anti-terrorism standards’ (CFATS) documentation and auditing requirements.

Moti Shabtai, president of Qognify, said, “In most large organisations, security is viewed as a cost centre with little positive impact on the bottom line, but not so for this progressive company.”

“Through its innovative use of Qognify security solutions, the company has been able to better secure its remote sites and produce significant savings in the process. In so doing, the company has shifted from a security-centric model to one that incorporates operational efficiencies through its ability to positively impact the bottom line.”
