Sword CTSpace


Sword CTSpace is a market-leading supplier specialised in document management, business process automation and project collaboration, with a strong expertise in the offshore industry.

Offshore-industry cost-reduction, efficiency and risk-reduction software
Sword CTSpace serves hundreds of organisations around the world, enabling them to improve internal and external communications, therefore optimising the execution of projects and programs and demonstrating measurable business benefits. Sword CTSpace's software allows companies in the offshore industry to reduce operating costs, improve efficiencies and mitigate risk with a consistent audit trail of all activity.
Collaboration software to support design, construction and operation of large power plants or oil and gas complexes
Customers use Sword CTSpace solutions for diverse energy projects such as hydrogen-fuelled power plants, thermo/hydroelectric plants, renewable energy programmes, oil complexes and offshore projects. An example of the latter is the recent Cygnus gas field project, where GDF Suez E&P UK selected Sword CTSpace solutions for project document control and collaboration with contractors for the initial design phase on this major North Sea gas field.
Our clients also include AMEC, Bahrain Petroleum, British Petroleum, Chevron, Esso Petroleum, Exxon Mobil, Kuwait National Petroleum Corporation (KNPC), MAN, Marathon Oil, Murphy Oil, Mustang, Petrobras, Powell Industries, Qatar Petroleum, Talisman, etc.
Offshore-project document management and information exchange
Offshore projects are typically long term and high value. Delivering projects on time and within budget is critical, as is ensuring global project control. Effective management of documents and information exchange is key to success. Traditional methods such as paper documents, emails, CDs and couriers are not sophisticated enough for today's complex projects.
An unstructured approach is expensive and can lead to each organisation having an isolated silo of information. Online collaboration solutions are increasingly deployed to manage project information, link geographically dispersed organisations and enable team members to collaborate in real time.
Offshore customer testimonials
"The value that Sword CTSpace has delivered in terms of streamlined business process automation, improved execution and increased client satisfaction has been substantial" (Stephen Kersch, head of Mustang's project information management group).
About Sword CTSpace
The Sword Group maintains strong partnerships with major Enterprise Content Management (ECM) providers, including Microsoft (SharePoint) and IBM (FileNet). Our products significantly extend these systems as opposed to just interfacing to them. Sword CTSpace offers all the forms of deployment that a company might require. For those who wish to retain full control over the installations there is the option to take a product in-house.
Our solutions also include the subscription option of SaaS, enabling a project to be operational without the need to install the applications. This option provides low cost of ownership and avoids delays in procuring additional hardware, as it is ideal for projects where suppliers, partners and sub-contractors need to collaborate. Since the SaaS solution is outside any one company's firewall, the main barriers to external collaboration are removed.
With over 13,000 projects in 56 countries, Sword CTSpace is experienced at providing global support for international projects and organisations. Multi-language support is available along with an extensive network of offices and technical staff to assist with implementations worldwide.
Sword CTSpace is a business unit of the Sword Group. Sword's stability as a company is underpinned by its size, financial strength and growth; key factors in selecting the Group as your long-term business partner.
