Lunch Seminar: Best practices for bringing disconnected information assets together into one place


The proliferation of data coming from remote locations, a geographically dispersed workforce, telemetry sensors, and third party vendors is causing major headaches for upstream oil and gas. With the drop in oil prices, budgets have been slashed, and in every part of your organization, employees are seeking to improve operational efficiency, performance, and profitability.

Better access to information means drilling faster and better with fewer resources, but for many upstream companies, there are barriers preventing the easy flow of information between departments.

SharePoint provides the basic building blocks for enabling the flow of information for an upstream oil & gas company. We invite you to join us as we demonstrate 5 ways that you should be using the SharePoint platform to improve the flow of information within your organization.

SharePoint expert and Entrance practice lead, Carol Donnelly, will provide real world examples of how our upstream clients use SharePoint to:

  • Increase operational efficiency and overall productivity by fitting SharePoint to business processes
  • Automate tedious tasks with forms, workflows, and lists
  • Surface the most critical information through upstream dashboards
  • Save time and improve collaboration through better document management
  • Encourage user adoption and drive corporate identity through custom branding

Join us for lunch to explore how SharePoint can help you grow better, faster.
