PTS Module Approach

The PTS consists of different modules, enabling customers to start with the core functions and later introduce value adding components

Personnel Record

Personnel Record

The PTS features a very comprehensive personnel record, accommodating registration of all relevant data for safe & secure operations, and with the possibility for customers to edit both labels and define mandatory fields. Values are entered, updated and reused at relevant stages throughout the personnel logistics supply process.





The PTS provides a high level of automation for generating both air, sea & ground  transportations based on a defined schedule and passenger bookings based on crew rota. Ad hoc transportations are easily created on the fly, be it for passenger, cargo or both.

Dispatch functions are available for rapid check-in of passengers and easy transfer to either waiting list or new transportation, printing of boarding pass and luggage tags.

POB & Accommodation

Maintaining an accurate POB is a core functionality in the PTS. The operational characteristics of an offshore rig and an onshore camp may often require different features & functionalities, and PTS is capable of accommodating both with a high level of configurability.
