New York, August 9, 2018 – Capgemini today showcased its leadership in capabilities for implementing SAP S/4HANA® for the energy sector by announcing the completion of the fourth successful implementation of its READYUpstream solution for upstream oil and gas firms. By adopting the READYUpstream solution, each company was able to go live with streamlined finance, accounting and operations processes in less than five months.
“When we started the project in September 2017, we were the first company in the upstream industry to implement SAP S/4HANA,” said Ricky Pollot, Chief Accounting Officer, White Star Petroleum, LLC. “Leveraging Capgemini’s READYUpstream solution, we were able to implement SAP S/4HANA in less than five months. We now have near real-time visibility into our profitability at the well level and a much better view of our costs in the field, thanks to SAP S/4HANA.”
Capgemini’s READYUpstream is a cloud-based, SAP-certified solution built on SAP S/4HANA, designed to help upstream exploration and production companies become more agile. With four successful SAP S/4HANA implementations, Capgemini has become a leading SAP partner for the upstream market by helping firms increase efficiency, accelerate speed to market and achieve compliance with local regulatory requirements.
READYUpstream’s joint venture, production-revenue and production-sharing accounting capabilities automate traditionally manual processes to increase reporting speed and accuracy in compliance with local regulations. By unlocking the power of SAP S/4HANA, Capgemini’s customers now have near real-time visibility of well-level profitability, allowing them to make key investment decisions in a dynamic upstream market.
“We are proud of our successful engagements with our clients to help them increase agility and capture market share in this growing sector,” said Leonardo Cuneo, Energy Director, Capgemini in Mexico and Colombia. “The speed of the implementations is a testament to our experience with SAP solutions, collaboration with our clients, and the deep experience of Capgemini team members.”
