PBS Offshore (PBS) a consortium of the Ponticelli, Brand and Semco companies was launched in Aberdeen in May 2020 and secured the Total TEPUK contract for General Maintenance & Operations across seven on and offshore assets in the UKCS with almost 1,000 personnel.
Using Onboard Tracker™, PBS Offshore has now streamlined processes and procedures across the consortium to provide a single platform to manage all offshore operations, personnel logistics, competency, certification, training and HR, ensuring the safety and compliance of its workforce.

PBS Offshore (PBS) a consortium of the Ponticelli, Brand and Semco companies was launched in Aberdeen during 2020 and secured the Total TEPUK contract for a large number of rigs and almost 1,000 personnel. Using Onboard Tracker™, Solab streamlined processes and procedures across the consortium to provide a single platform to manage all offshore operations, personnel logistics, competency, certification, training and HR, ensuring the safety and compliance of its workforce.
TEPUK had been using five separate incumbent suppliers across their assets.
The PBS award consequently required a huge data transfer from TEPUK and wider incumbent suppliers to improve visibility, consolidate reporting and reduce duplication of effort, inaccuracies and human error – not to mention the consolidation of all personal data for employees and new recruits within PBS.
Several different management systems were in use across various departments in each company and all were experiencing frustratingly similar challenges with legacy systems and a multitude of spreadsheets that were no longer fit for purpose.
The transition to the PBS consortium was an opportunity to introduce a new and improved way of working. The Onboard Tracker™ system now supports PBS to efficiently and accurately track its people, has transformed operational visibility, whilst also providing onshore and office-based employees with a robust, easy-to-use and informative system to support operations.
All PBS departments use and experience Onboard Tracker™ differently:
- The Logistics team now input, track, and administer all crew rotations, absences, holidays and outputs to payroll on the system.
- The Training division is centrally managing all training matrices, expiries, and related documentation to ensure compliance within the online portal.
- Likewise, the Competence department is centrally managing all competence matrices, candidate journeys and assessor/verifier duties within Onboard Tracker™.
- HR is managing employee contracts, personal information, appraisals and more.
RESULTS & BENEFITS
The implementation of Onboard Tracker™ in the PBS transition has aided and enabled the company to bring its three entities into one organisational structure and keep their workforce safe, well trained and competent.
Streamlined Processes: Whilst each department operates their uniquely configured module, all link seamlessly to ensure quick, user friendly access to the most up to date, accurate information to improve efficiencies across the business.
Increased Visibility: All previous systems are now consolidated into one platform with all of the workforce able to access their records from home, office, on the rig and when mobile.
Improved Reporting: The user-friendly system provides real-time data allowing efficient and informed decision making which supports improved operational performance.

Create Training Rules for complex Training Matrices
Onboard Tracker now includes a new feature to provide users with added flexibility when it comes to managing complex training matrices. The added functionality helps ensure reports are accurate with any nuances effectively and efficiently captured.
The latest feature allows users to edit matrices and create training rules including ‘what-if’ scenarios to ensure data is as accurate as possible. This helps users to measure compliance across the workforce and allow specific matrices to be generated direct from Onboard Tracker. The new functionality also includes a search function to generate a list of personnel holding specific mobilisation certification.
Here are a few example complex scenarios:
- Certification is obtained by completing one of a number of training courses (i.e. employee must attain 1 out of 3 optional courses)
- Multiple courses need to be completed before certification is attained
- Employees have different requirements:
These can all be managed centrally on the system.
For more information on how Onboard Tracker efficiently manages complex training matrices, get in touch and our team will be delighted to arrange a short demo.
