Aker BP has teamed up with Safran to improve its risk management analyses across all Oil and Gas developments.
"The team seemed genuinely proud of their product and there was no scripted sales pitch; they were content to allow the software to speak for them. Their pride was not misplaced; after downloading a trial version, I was first amazed at how fast the analysis was. Then, when I inevitably ran into issues understanding the product and integrating my data, I was immediately routed to an expert and we solved most of my problems that day.
Safran Risk is a great product with an even better support team. After a few days with the software, I knew that it was miles beyond its competition when it comes to fully integrated cost-schedule analysis. After about a week, I got to experience the technical support team and decided that this would be my final decision. I initiated the procurement process through my company not long after, and I look forward to fully transitioning my team to using Safran Risk over the next few months."

"I use Safran Risk on complex megaprojects, and have found that it is the most capable quantitative schedule risk assessment software on the market. Safran Risk is a very powerful risk analysis tool, including features that advanced users will appreciate, while still being easy to pick up and use. It has a user friendly interface that minimizes the amount of time it takes to develop a schedule risk model. Risk mapping and correlation are easily modeled to schedule activities. Risk analysis tools include sensitivity by exclusion analysis, scatter plot, and critical path maps. All this results in less time it takes to model and analyze a quantitative risk assessment compared to other risk software."
Eric Ho, Director of Risk Management VMS (Value Management Strategies)
