What is Client for Contractors (C4C)?
Client for Contractors (C4C) is a new Shell IT service developed to allow contractors access to selected Shell applications and services using their company-provided laptop, working inside or away from Shell offices.
Contractor staff can access Shell IT resources - Web and Win32 applications, Functional Mailbox (OWA), File Shares and Network Printers - via a secure web portal, directly from their company supplied computer anytime and anywhere.
C4C service is an alternative to GI, not a straight replacement. Shell provides the gateway to the contracting company to access Shell resources with access configured based on the direct needs of each contractor. Shell provides no software license, hardware, email, storage or associated ‘full’ GI-D offering to the contractor.
The ultimate goal of the C4C service is to reduce the reliance from the contracting company on the use of Shell IT infrastructure and support services. It is expected that Shell contracting companies will have support and maintenance services available for their staff as Shell will only support connectivity to the SSL/VPN gateway on the Shell network.
