Manup Services, the technology-powered marketplace advancing the efficiency of hiring on-demand skilled oil and energy workforce through its fast, precise, and automated matching of the pre-vetted workers-to-projects platform – today announces a partnership with Ofserv Energy Solutions – Uganda.

Before its expansion to Uganda, Ofserv Nigeria Limited has been a forerunner in employing cutting-edge processes and technologies to improve drilling performance and providing bespoke inspection solutions to address the toughest topsides and subsea degradation challenges in Nigeria.

With technology playing an ever-increasing role in every aspect of business – the oil and gas industry inclusive – companies recognize that they need to accelerate the speed of hiring project-based personnel without compromise to quality and at a reduced cost to ensure they remain on the competitive vanguard. The Manup – Ofserv partnership brings together years of deep knowledge in the oil and gas business and cutting-edge technology stack that helps support businesses through their manpower deployment and management needs.

“Manup leverages the ubiquity and affordability of cloud computing to automate the complex and legacy workflows of lifecycle workforce management. We have built the technology that helps energy workers stay on top of their training and certifications, find their next project faster, and take more money home.”
