The Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC) has successfully implemented the first wave of Enablon modules in a bid to integrate, automate and streamline governance, risk compliance, health and safety, environment and sustainability, business continuity and internal audit practices across the organisation. The developer said Wolters Kluwer’s Enablon was selected based on its industry-leading position as a provider of integrated software solutions.
The project was initiated in January last year and after a lengthy design and consultation process lasting 15 months, the team has now launched the integrated solution, a statement from the firm said.
“We began this journey at the height of the global pandemic, with the aim of integrating several of our risk and control functions. The main objective was to enhance monitoring, reporting and alignment across the multiple functions involved in the delivery of standard setting health and safety practices. The rollout has arrived at an opportune time, with manpower at site exceeding 16,000 TRSDC employees and contractors,” said CEO John Pagano.
He added, “This was a largescale implementation project which engaged multiple internal and external stakeholders. I would like to congratulate all those involved for the successful completion of the first phase, which supports TRSDC in achieving its ambitions as a global leader in responsible development.”
Together with management consultants Ernst & Young, Wolters Kluwer as the software provider and Wipro as the implementation consultant, TRSDC established a committee who oversaw the progress and implementation of the solution, the statement noted.
Wolters Kluwer Enablon VP and MD Laurent Dechaux explained, “We are excited to partner with The Red Sea Development Company on such an important and ambitious project. Our Enablon Vision Platform offers TRSDC a full 360-degree view of risk, addressing the Environmental, Health and Safety challenges of the project. We are happy to help TRSDC deliver deep impact where it matters most while remaining responsible, productive, and safe through innovative technology.”
Commenting on the successful deployment, EY said TRSDC was a pioneer in conceptualising the alignment between its risk and controls functions, utilising the strength of Enablon to bring together governance, risk compliance, health and safety, environment and sustainability, business continuity and internal audit. Throughout the 15-month implementation period, the priority was to ensure TRSDC requirements are met with focus on future adoption and value, EY said.
Given the remote location of many of the sites under development at The Red Sea Project, a key advantage of utilising Enablon’s solution is the systems capability to be used in an offline mode, allowing incident data or inspection and audit reports to be prepared and then uploaded once the device is connected to the network. Equally beneficial is the mobile phone application which is user-friendly for employees logging data on the move, the statement noted.
Additional features are being assessed in efforts to continue to automate and enhance operations through the Enablon integrated platform. The system will also be rolled out for Amaala and the growing number of projects in the TRSDC portfolio, the developer concluded.
