Repstor ECM Adoption software to be deployed across Premier Oil Plc global operations

Leading ECM Adoption specialist, Repstor today announced that Premier Oil - a FTSE250 international oil and gas exploration and production company has selected and is deploying Repstor affinity and Repstor assist across its global operations to underpin its document and records management and compliance programs and to ensure adoption of their newly deployed ECM platform (Microsoft SharePoint).

Premier Oil is headquartered in the UK with operations across the globe, and with the need to meet regulatory requirements and ensure productivity across a widely spread and diverse workforce they have selected Repstor to ensure that users across the organization can move to the new platform while minimizing change management and training requirements.

In a selection process that included evaluation of several competing products, Repstor affinity and assist were the clear winner in every important area of functionality. Highlighted in the evaluation were, ease of use, depth of integration with Microsoft Outlook and Office, email filing and management, performance and stability, support for search, ease of enterprise-wide deployment and offline working. Availability of filing assistance (the Repstor assist product) was also key, to ensure users could file content correctly with significantly improved productivity.

In selecting Repstor Premier Oil recognized that by providing a very effective and easily adopted Outlook client it could increase user adoption of its Microsoft® SharePoint® ECM systems, and improve collaboration while increasing productivity and ultimately cutting costs.

Premier Oil chose Repstor because it provided a level of product integration, ease of use and performance in a product that was ready for deployment across the enterprise.

“During our evaluation, the Repstor product was a clear winner when compared to the other products that we evaluated, both in terms of ease of user adoption and how it can be deployed across our entire user base, ” Andy Gibb, Group Legal Manager, Premier Oil Plc.

“For our legal and project users in particular this is a key selection, since email is the key content type for lawyers and project managers, and the fact that in our evaluation the Repstor assist product made email filing and access faster and easier rather than getting in the way and slowing the process down as is the case with other products we looked at is a major advantage for us.” adds Andy.

Premier Oil staff will have a much more user friendly way of working and collaborating on projects using Repstor affinityTM. Not only that but users have information available quickly when they need it whether on or offline making collaboration both easier and more productive.

“We are delighted to be working with the team at Premier Oil and that their evaluation clearly highlighted the benefits around the areas where we have focused in developing the Repstor products,” Alan McMillen CEO, Repstor Limited.

Repstor’s products make access to content systems easy and intuitive for users, by providing access to them within the familiar interface of Microsoft® Outlook®.
