We needed a low-cost website in a hurry for our business and Oracast was able to pull it off. I appreciate all of their hard work and would strongly recommend them to anyone.

Shell Canada uses independent contractors out in the field for virtually every aspect of their business. These contractors are required to meet very high standards of safety as dictated by Federal and Provincial law and Shell Canada's own commitment to safety. Unfortunately, training for these contractors has traditionally been classroom oriented which has limited their ability to train all of the contractors on time and up to standard. With each new individual working for the contractor, this person would also have to be trained before going on site and then have their training record recorded somewhere so that all divisions of Shell Canada could see that the training was completed.
With previous projects already underway with Shell Canada, Oracast and ICOM Productions teamed up once again to develop a solution to their training problems. Oracast worked with ICOM and Shell Canada to introduce an online solution where training could be taken from a standard internet browser from virtually anywhere in the world, and would allow Shell Canada employees to access important information at any time, to easily see who was authorized to work on site.
Oracast created the Shell Canada Contractor Portal which is accessible by both Shell Employees and any public user that registers for an account. Public users have the ability to register and take Shell Canada's training, while Shell Canada employees can connect to administer the system or gather information. Web based training material that follows a simple set of guidelines can be added to the site by administrators at any time, thus becoming available to registered users.
Shell Canada's Contractor Portal has been successful in delivering web based training to contractors across the country, reducing the number of class sessions needed and virtually eliminating the wait time for taking the training. This has resulted in a larger number of educated contractors available to work as needed. In addition, Shell Canada employees can now easily access the system to gather the necessary information before allowing a worker on site; thereby improving safety within the organization.
