Black Elk Energy implements FileTrail records management software

Thursday, November 17, 2011

Houston independent oil and gas company Black Elk Energy has implemented the "FileTrail" software for file tracking and records management, running on Microsoft SharePoint 2010 platform.

The system uses barcodes and RFID (radio frequency identification devices) to track the location of physical (paper) file boxes. This means that everybody in the company knows where the paper files are.

It is the first oil and gas company in the Southern region of the US to use the technology.

Microsoft is planning a 'full system analysis' during Autumn 2011 to learn more about how how Black Elk is using the system.

'The IT and Document Management Teams of Black Elk are introducing a very resourceful and unique integrated system that will help our entire company increase efficiency and productivity,' says John Hoffman, CEO of Black Elk Energy.

'This new system has expanded our ability to access and maintain documentation despite the growing numbers of members in the Black Elk family and the ever-expanding library of documentation.
