The Project.

When Kev Cooper became CIO of Swire Oilfield Services, he had a vision to take the organisation from one of disparate applications, hard-to-find information and file-shares, to one where the technology infrastructure would be useful to everyone, visually pleasing and cost effective to run – a bit like the clocks that feature in every Swire Oilfield Services office world-wide.
“The clocks were something we discussed a lot amongst the project team because no matter which one of the Swire Oilfield Services sites you were
visiting, there was a consistent visual cue that connected you to the company values and our global reach. I wanted our technology platform to have the same impact.”
