Unbeatable Value and Ease of Use
Not Software-as-a-Service. SERVICE as a Service.
Fixed Fee Implementation
We are so confident in Kildrummy® CostMANAGEMENT’s flexibility that we offer a fixed-fee implementation. Only if your problem is unusually complex will we quote for extra consultancy – and that is very rare.
Flexible and Scalable
Kildrummy® CostMANAGEMENT manages and controls cost on everything from minor projects and shutdowns, to mega-projects and portfolios of projects.
The definition of ‘solution’ is ‘a means of solving a problem or dealing with a difficult situation,’ or ‘the answer to a puzzle.’
Yet the term ‘solution’ is often used interchangeably with ‘software.’
When we say we provide a solution, we really mean it. It’s not about software, it’s about collaborating closely with your team to solve the challenges you’re facing.
How we Work
First, we work alongside your team to conduct a Needs Analysis that precisely defines your unique challenge.
“An approximate answer to the right question is worth a great deal more than a precise answer to the wrong question.” – John Tukey
Next, we identify and collaborate with your key people to understand their workflow and deliverables, exploring how data flows throughout your organization.
By this point we know how to solve the precise problem that faces you.
Configuring your Solution
After we’ve conducted your Needs Analysis, our technical team will configure Kildrummy® CostMANAGEMENT to do exactly what is required. Regardless of the size, shape, or duration of your project(s) – and no matter what industry you operate in – our solution is fully tailorable to your needs.
Bringing your Solution on Stream
Once we’ve configured your ideal solution and pre-existing data has been loaded into Kildrummy® CostMANAGEMENT, it’s time to train your team.
One or more of your people will be trained to Super-User or Admin level. That way they can configure and reconfigure the solution as requirements change and evolve.
Our training enables your project control engineers, Finance people and other users to achieve their goals using Kildrummy® CostMANAGEMENT’s data and reports.
We provide cost-effective reporting licenses that enable managers to see the latest state-of-play without training.
Kildrummy® CostMANAGEMENT licenses are concurrent, greatly reducing the number of licenses you require..
We stay by your side to help you get Kildrummy® CostMANAGEMENT operational and producing the data and reports you need. We solve any teething troubles that occur when the rubber hits the road and help you work through your first reporting cycles.
Supporting your Solution
Kildrummy® has discovered over the decades that the more help we give our customers via our helpdesk, the easier and quicker it is to support them in the long run. So our helpdesk acts as if it were embedded in your project or organization, a part of your team. We make sure that we understand the problem as well as the solution, and we go the extra mile in terms of support.
Only if you need major changes to your implementation, like integration to a new external system or a complex specialist report, would we quote you consultancy rates. We will not sell you unnecessary consultancy – and most consultancy is unnecessary when the implementation is done correctly.
Upgrading your Solution
Your annual licence gives you the right to receive software upgrades as they become available. We aim to release between two and four upgrades a year.
We keep an updated Roadmap on this website.
The Roadmap tells you what we are planning to create during the next 12 months or more.
Contributing to our Roadmap
We actively and continually seek your opinion about what changes, improvements or enhancements should go into future releases of Kildrummy® CostMANAGEMENT. We listen, take note and add your ideas to our development Roadmap.
Flexibility is the Key
Kildrummy® CostMANAGEMENT is uniquely flexible.
We have standard configurations for controlling shutdowns/turnarounds/outages, for smaller projects, major projects and mega-projects, for entire portfolios of projects in overview or in detail.
Kildrummy® CostMANAGEMENT controls cost for owner groups and EPC contractors alike. Vertical configurations are under development for specific industrial sectors, including some where project cost management may be less familiar or less valued.
No matter what cost management problems your organization faces, Kildrummy with Kildrummy® CostMANAGEMENT is the proven solution.
The result is a more agile, empowered, high performance team. A team who can make proactive decisions and take action to eliminate or reduce problems before they escalate.
