Abstract: Kellogg Brown and Root, one of the world's largest suppliers of products and services to the oil and gas industry, came to SydneyPLUS seeking to enhance their reference and research services while reducing IT costs.


(Vancouver, Canada November 24, 2006) Kellogg Brown and Root (KBR), one of the world's largest suppliers of products and services to the oil and gas industry, came to SydneyPLUS seeking to enhance their reference and research services while reducing IT costs.

By combining SydneyPLUS's ASP solution model with a new customized Knowledge Portal, they were able to get everything they needed.

The SydneyPLUS Implementation department worked closely with KBR to improve reference services by:

  • expanding online access to their research center
  • positioning the center to win a larger user base
  • increasing reference staff efficiency

SydneyPLUS' ASP service reduced costs by:

  • eliminating expense associated with owning servers
  • providing software upgrades at no cost
  • simplifying service expansion to remote facilities

Offering extraordinary flexibility, the SydneyPLUS knowledge repository offers increased access to vital recourses. This consolidation of information resources improves organizational efficiency by helping employees make better decisions, faster.

"It was a pleasure to have this chance to work with KBR," comments Emma Hathway, Consultant for SydneyPLUS, "They came to us with a clear vision of what they wanted. This let us easily put together a solution that gave them exactly what they needed."
