Houston (Texas), Jun 03: The User Group Conference for Oil and Gas companies that IBS hosted on 1st June 2005 at Houston, Texas, saw several large Oil majors discussing industry best practices and the efficacy of IT solutions in optimising their logistics operations. The conference was specifically meant for IBS’ clients in the Oil and Gas sector, all of who currently use the iLogistics genre of solutions.
The conference also made the users aware of planned enhancement/evolution of the products in use. The participants were introduced to the novel concept of iLogistics being offered by IBS as a completely hosted solution. This would mean that IBS would make iLogistics available as a community-based system that oil and gas companies could use, to share logistics resources amongst themselves for greater optimisation and improved economy in their upstream operations.
