The Solution

After a thorough evaluation of the marketplace, McDermott selected a Dynama solution which is specifically designed to help organisations simplify the task of finding, deploying and managing appropriately skilled staff in a challenging marine environment.

The new software solution has consolidated McDermott’s in-house developed safety training database, a third part application for crewing, in addition to numerous spread sheets, paper files and databases and brought together all relevant staff information into one place.

McDermott now uses Dynama to schedule 7,075 people across 11 primary vessels, plus a number of support vessels and 4 marine bases.

The Benefits

A series of significant benefits have been realised including:

  • Global scheduling – via a central repository with intelligence on staff
  • Cross-organisational collaboration – including crewing logistics, HR, Quality Health Safety Environment and Security (QHSES) departments
  • Managing client expectations – project managers can view and print career resumes, training and travel documents, both on and offshore to manage expectations
  • Blending of scheduling and training in a single platform – linked in the Management and Professional Staffing (MAPS) system
  • Time savings and widespread adoption – daily tasks made faster

​​"Since introducing Dynama we can look-up crew members around the world and see their work history and where they working, then assign them to a special project or give them a new role based on their skills and experience."
