Absoft and Arnlea team on oil country asset tracking

Barcode asset tracking system developed for CNR/KCA Deutag now on general release.

Aberdeen-based SAP consultancy Absoft has teamed with Arnlea Systems on a barcode asset tracking system. The system was developed in cooperation with drilling contractor KCA Deutag for use in CNR International’s North Sea operations. The system tracks assets and materials between onshore and offshore drilling sites.


Handheld computers with bar code readers identify materials and capture transactions. Information is transmitted via a docking station into SAP for integration with logistics and maintenance management systems. Workflows have been developed for goods receipts, issuance, physical inventory management and returns processing. Following a successful pilot, the system is now being rolled out to all five of CNR’s operated North Sea platforms where KCA Deutag provides drilling and maintenance services.
