Case Study: Ensign Drilling Part 1

Background

Ensign Drilling has been one of Latium’s most valued clients since 1996. From the very beginning, Ensign knew that like many companies, fleet management is simply not its core business. While a necessary day-to-day operation, fleet management is often an afterthought. In the early days of its business, Ensign lacked leadership in spearheading fleet-related decisions—both owned and leased—in enforcing driver safety policies after an incident had occurred and in cost control. Even the day-to-day fleet management activities like windshield maintenance and oil changes began to drain Ensign time.

Goal

Latium’s goal for Ensign was to streamline fleet management operations so Ensign could focus on its core business.

Strategy

To minimize the disruption to Ensign’s core business, Latium provided Ensign’s management with a hotline to its fleet coordinators—available 24/7/365—to take care of all types of fleet responsibilities ranging from oil changes to accidents. Latium kept on top of Ensign’s fleet, monitoring when repairs needed to be made, when oil changes were needed and when new vehicles needed to be purchased.

Result

This customized program allowed Latium to keep on top of Ensign’s day-to-day fleet needs, to make expert decisions, and only required the client’s approval. This saved Ensign thousands of dollars in hard costs and maximized time to focus on its core business.

Case study: Ensign Drilling Part 2

Background

Due to an extremely busy winter drilling season in 2005, there were many accidents, write-offs and unfortunately vehicle related deaths industry-wide. Working proactively, Ensign contacted Latium to help the company manage the season.

Goal

To reduce accidents and attempt to eradicate vehicle-related deaths.

Strategy

Latium suggested using GPS technology to track driver speed and ensure all drivers were adhering to safety policies. Latium tested several GPS products, and searched for an existing GPS provider that could meet all the required specifications and functionality. Unable to find the right GPS system for Ensign’s needs, Latium built its own state-of-the art GPS hardware and software, complete with a fleet management web based system. To further enhance the offering, Latium also developed a 24/7/365 live monitoring, assistance and reporting program.

Result

Since the launch of Latium’s Latlogix technology, Latium is extremely proud to report that Ensign has experienced zero vehicle related deaths. Furthermore, operational costs for all clients who use Latlogix have decreased by a minimum of 35 per cent to a reported 60 per cent. Once a normal part everyday life, accidents are now rare occurrences.

Testimonial: Ensign Energy

“Ensign Energy has been Latium’s customer since 1996. We use Latium for our GPS tracking and monitoring as well as for our various fleet management services; I highly recommend its services.

The Latlogix GPS tracking technology has proven to be an instrumental driver in our efforts to increase safety and productivity, properly to manage vehicle maintenance and to reduce abuse and damage to our vehicles. Prior to choosing Latium as our provider, we researched many competing technologies and could not find one that could do everything we needed and more, like the Latlogix system can.

From its customer service, transparency and completeness of its offering, Latium is one of the best companies that we have dealt with. No company out there can offer both technology and fleet management, and has the ability to adapt to my business like Latium.” — Ensign Energy Service
