For over 30 years Aupec has been delivering actionable insight through transformational benchmarking.
Aupec specialises in IT cost benchmarking services for the global oil and gas sector. Our benchmarking journey began with North Sea operators over 30 years ago, analysing their IT spend and resourcing. Since then we have worked in partnership with the world’s largest integrated oil and gas companies to develop a deep understanding of their IT cost benchmarking needs across all major operating segments and business elements.
At Aupec, our benchmarkers take very little at face value. They listen to you and challenge you with experience and perspective. They dig deeper to discover meaningful insight behind the numbers to ultimately reveal transformational opportunities for change within your organisation. We believe the liberating effects of the truth transform organisations such as yours and strive to provide meaningful metrics that will transform your business.
These values are the fabric of our culture and framework for all decisions made;
Be Committed, passionate and innovative
Be bold. Demonstrate enthusiasm, adaptability and a desire to deliver the best. Our experience and knowledge will help others transform their business.
Listen, learn and be inquisitive
Develop a deep understanding of context, consider multiple perspectives and always strive for better. Making a positive impact on others takes courage, curiosity and creativity.
Build trust and achieve consensus
Facilitate collaboration by developing mutual trust and common understanding through effective and honest communication. Only through cooperation can we create more effective solutions to complex challenges.
Contribute, nurture and lead
Stay optimistic, have fun, and maintain a positive mindset at all times. There are always new ways of working and opportunities to inspire others. Use good judgement to ensure we stay relevant and fresh.
