IBS Software and Mintra Announce Strategic Partnership to Improve Operational Safety and Logistics Efficiency in Energy and Renewables

Dubai, 28 July 2022: IBS Software, a leading SaaS solutions provider for the travel and logistics industry, has entered into a strategic partnership with digital learning and human capital management software company Mintra (OSE: MNTR) to improve operational safety and accelerate logistics efficiency across the energy and renewables industries.

The partnership will combine IBS Software’s strong track record of helping energy companies enhance logistics efficiency and reduce supply chain emissions, through its iLogistics technology platform, and Mintra’s expertise in improving operational safety in safety-critical industries. The collaboration will allow energy and renewables companies to integrate safety and logistics excellence by providing end-to-end supply chain visibility, supporting ESG performance.

Providing a single view of the entire supply chain reduces complexity and enables customers to improve the operational safety of personnel transportation and material transportation, protecting workers and reducing lost time incidents (LTIs). Having a holistic view also means customers can optimize logistics, minimize supply chain spend and cut supply-related emissions.

“All too often energy and renewable companies have to work with multiple companies for learning and logistics management. Inevitably, it becomes challenging for energy operators to balance their priority focus on the operational safety of crew and materials with the efficient management of the supply chain. Through this strategic partnership, IBS Software and Mintra are changing the game by delivering one solution that delivers industry-leading safety management with supply chain visibility to help companies take control of their operations and help achieve net-zero targets,” said Remasankar Sivasankaran Nair, Vice President of Energy & Resources Logistics, IBS Software. “Mintra is a pioneer in the safety and operations field, and shares our vision of transforming safety and logistics through digital technology. We’re thrilled to be partnering with a company of Mintra’s caliber to deliver innovative solutions to mission-critical operations,” continued Remasankar Sivasankaran Nair.

“Energy companies are perpetually striving to increase safety across their operations and optimise each segment of the often complex supply chains. By combining Mintra and IBS Software’s expertise and specialisms we are able to present our clients with a digital technology offering which improves safety and transforms the supply chain, unlocking a new wave of business efficiencies,” said  Kjetil Flood, Chief Commercial Officer at Mintra. “We are delighted to share this news and excited to work with our customers to harness the benefits of this strategic partnership”.

IBS Software’s iLogistics SaaS cloud technology platform allows businesses to optimize complex logistics in the energy industry, including workforce and upstream logistics, POB and remote camp management, and helicopter and offshore marine logistics. It is built to support companies to reduce CO2 emissions through effective logistics management and achieve a net zero supply chain.
