Asset Management Firm Supports Winner of this Year's Nobel Peace Prize

Hardcat Pty Ltd., Congratulates the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) on being awarded this year’s Nobel Peace Prize.

Melbourne-based IT software specialist, Hardcat, has played a considerable role with its Asset Management Software in the operations of the organization awarded this year’s Nobel Peace Prize.

The award was made recently to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) for its critically important work.

Based in The Hague, the OPCW’s principal role is to monitor and destroy all chemical weapons identified under the 1997 Chemical Weapons Convention.

OPCW has been using the Hardcat system as part of its current operations in Syria to track assets from and to its headquarters.

Hardcat’s Managing Director, Dan Drum, said a key aspect of the company’s overall role was to know what assets they have as well as where they are located, schedule calibration checks for all test equipment being used by the OPCW in the course of its missions.

“As well as tracking their asset base via barcodes our software schedules Planned Maintenance to ensure calibration of their technical equipment and also performs stock control to keep track of all consumable items including chemical protection suits,” Mr. Drum said.

Mr. Drum said “one of the main reasons for OPCW selecting Hardcat was its flexibility to be configured to meet the organization’s strict requirements.

“Hardcat is both simple and robust and is of great assistance to their 500-strong staff in carrying out their work,” he said.

The Hardcat product range is also being used within the United Nations, the Australian Defense Force, the US Navy and the UK Ministry of Defense.
