Savanna Energy is a global leader in energy services, specialising in drilling and well servicing. With operations in the USA, Australia and Canada, they first introduced the Pegasus system to their Toowoomba, Australia operations in February 2017.
Initially Savanna Energy was using the Pegasus solution as a database of workers.
Inputting the data of 450 workers after their various classroom inductions was an overwhelming and time-consuming task – not only for Training Administrator Kimberly Hennig, but for the workers who had to come in to complete training every couple of weeks. And while Savanna’s focus on safety and training was essential, all this equaled time way from the field where workers were needed.
“Working alone, the data entry was extremely high,” said Kimberly. “I could spend one or two days entering 100 – 200 certs.”
This is when Kimberly started investigating exactly what Savanna had with Pegasus, and the potential to save time and streamline processes was realised.
Savanna Energy Training Administrator Kimberly Hennig realised the potential of the Pegasus system when she took over responsibility for it. Her first step was to discover which manual processes could be replaced with simple, online and automatic solutions.
“It (the online induction booking process) is very simple to use,” said Kimberly.
“It allows you to add just an individual worker or a crew, and it saves so much time.”
“I can go through and see who has and hasn’t completed each induction, simply resend it to have it done and sorted from their computer or mobile.”
“Simple. It’s done.”
Moving inductions online allows for the auto-booking of training, and the auto-updating of worker records in the Pegasus system – complete insight into their safety and compliance.
“We were using Excel and manual processes,” said Kimberly. “Now it’s all automatic.”
A training matrix in the Pegasus system determines which workers require which online inductions, depending on their Savanna work role. With the click of a button, inductions are booked and training links sent to workers to complete at any time, from any device.
With this amount of workforce information available in the Pegasus system, reporting allows Kimberly to analyse and present data in meaningful and actionable ways – understanding and identifying skills gaps and enjoying an at-a-glance view of the workforce.
And the results speak for themselves – now when Kimberly needs to manage the skills and safety of Savanna Energy’s workers, it’s a simple, automatic and fast process.
Pegasus Portal enhancements have been scheduled to enable training notifications to be sent to both the administrative user...
“The greatest benefit of working with Pegasus has been the high level of innovation and features available in their packages that aren’t available in other products we have investigated.”
“I’d check Pegasus two to three times a day. It became a single source of truth for workers and safety on the project.”
"Working alone, the data entry was extremely high. I could spend one or two days entering 100 – 200 certs. The system is automatically updated, and I save two full days of work all up - yesterday I was done within 4 hours.”
“The Pegasus platform allows us to standardise the onboarding and induction of contractors nationally, with the robust system underpinning our contractor management process.”
“Pegasus is now used in managing safety, job planning and reviewing the commercial side of things. Pegasus is now integrated with everything we do.”
