Connect Plant Operators to your Business

Connect Plant Operators to your Business

Plant operators can be connected to your business in 2 general ways:
  1. "Employee operators"
    1. Operators that work as employees of your business
    2. Added as users in your Aquipa account
    3. Charges relating to these operators (e.g. operator connections to hiring clients) will be charged to your Aquipa account
  2. "Third-party operators"
    1. Operators that operate plant for your business on a third-party or sub-contractor level
    2. Typically these operators operate plant for multiple plant owner businesses
    3. Manage their own Aquipa account but are connected to your business in Aquipa so that they are available to be booked for work with your plant and their competencies can be verified by your hiring clients
    4. Charges relating to these operators will be charged directly to the account of the operator. E.g. when you connect these operators to hiring clients, you will not be charged for the connection.
