Syncrude Canada Adopts InterPlan Systems’ Project Planning Solution

Houston, TX — Sep. 10, 2007 – InterPlan Systems Inc., today announced that Syncrude Canada, is the world’s largest producer of crude oil from oil sands and the largest single source producer in Canada, is deploying InterPlan Systems’ eTaskMaker project planning software within its refineries. The rollout will provide the technology framework to create standard processes for estimating, planning and scheduling all maintenance projects.

Syncrude Canada had previously used a variety of business processes for planning project work, including manual, non-computerized efforts. However, the company has committed itself to enforcing standardized business processes in order to improve best practices and its competitive edge. Overhauling planning and estimating processes was considered crucial to the success of this initiative, and after evaluating solutions from several leading vendors, Syncrude Canada opted for InterPlan Systems’ powerful planning tools.

“Organizations like Syncrude Canada have positioned themselves for success by seeking out leading edge technology that enables their workforce to work smarter,” said Bernard Ertl, Vice President of InterPlan Systems. “InterPlan looks forward to helping Syncrude Canada achieve improved standardization and best practices that will contribute to real competitive gains.”
