Van Oord implements Dynama’s Workforce Management to gain a single view of people and resources around the globe

Back to news & events

Dynama, a leading provider of maritime and defence workforce management software, has announced that leading international dredging and marine engineering giant Van Oord has deployed Dynama to provide a single, integrated view of people and resources around the world. In addition to core planning functionality, Van Oord has installed a wide range of Dynama’s integrated modules including Onboard, Travel Management, Skills Management and the Notification system.

Van Oord was looking for a complete solution to replace a multitude of legacy planning tools and manual spreadsheets. After a thorough selection process it finally selected Dynama.

Robbert Ferwerda, Project Manager GRIP, SMD Systems – Van Oord commented, “We chose Dynama primarily because it presented the most cost-effective option with the high levels of functionality necessary to support us from the outset. Using one single ship and shore-side planning system, planners at Van Oord, wherever they are located, can enjoy shared visibility of the entire company’s scheduling activities around the world.  With the backing of Dynama’s proven track record in the industry, we now have the confidence to forge ahead and do smarter things with the same number of resources.”

The new Dynama solution, which has been renamed Global Resourcing Ingenious People (GRIP) by Van Oord now means the company benefits from consistent, effective ways of working, the availability of accurate real-time data to accelerate the scheduling process and high levels of flexibility and customisation to accommodate different cultural and operational requirements across the organisation – both on and offshore.

Andrew Carwardine, Managing Director at Dynama concluded, “Many of our customers operate in complex, international or highly regulated environments. They rely on the flexibility of our technology to accommodate and demonstrate compliance with the diverse workplace practices, taxation rules and legislative requirements of different countries.  This is one of Dynama’s largest worldwide implementations and we look forward to continuing to work with Van Oord to accelerate its scheduling and planning process, identify skills gaps, reduce duplication and errors, and create a solid foundation for proactive decision-making and forward-planning now and into the future.”
