Virtual Inventory is a digital solution for sustainable material management

The NCS operators focus on efficiency, standardisation, and cost savings across all areas. To create a new and forwardlooking offshore oil and gas industry, companies unite to maximise the value and strengthen the competitiveness of the NCS and its representatives.

The challenges the operators face are similar and result in costly routines. A silo-based mindset, dispersed tools, lack of common standards for proper material management lead to radical excess of inventory, environmental and regulatory non-compliance, and over-expenditures.

Virtual Inventory is a single platform for material management aiming to strengthen collaboration in the NCS ecosystem and enable synergies between services.
