HCL Technologies to implement SAP for Egypt’s Sahara Petroleum Services Company
Dec 03, 2009
The SAP Enterprise Resource Planning ECC 6.0 project was conceived to enable complete and integrated ERP for SAPESCO's petroleum business across MENA.
With the implementation of SAP, SAPESCO will significantly realize benefits by improving efficiencies in processes such as 'Acquire to Retire', 'Procure to Pay' which are critical for bringing transparency and efficiency into its business. Significant benefits are also expected through integration of business processes, standardized systems, processes and controls.
Speaking on this engagement, Mr. Hesham Fouad, CEO, SAPESCO said, Being a highly diversified Group, we have embarked on this project in order to have a seamless integration across all companies and points of presence for financial consolidation, better control and standardized Human Resource processes across the group. We chose HCL for this strategic project in recognition of its deep domain capabilities and intellectual properties around SAP in the Oil & Gas sector. We feel that this association with HCL will help us to realize our goal of being a world class refinery”
Commenting on the same, Mr. Virender Aggarwal, Sr. Vice President & Head of APAC-MEA Markets, HCL Technologies, said Our strong SAP experience in the Oil & Gas sector, more specifically in the Oil Field Services played an important role in winning this engagement. We look forward to extending benefits like timely management reporting, increased operational efficiency and centralization of key organizational functions for SAPESCO.”
A key highlight of this solution is HCL Axon's Rapid Deployment Toolkit (RDT) for the Oilfield Services Sector which provides a pre-configured solution for Oilfield Services companies which enhances SAP's ERP package.
The global Oil & Gas industry has unique challenges and business imperatives especially given the current macro-economic environment. We at HCL have deep experience addressing those challenges and have experience implementing cutting-edge SAP solutions to meet the unique business requirements of this space. We look forward to extending our expertise, thought leadership and the Rapid Deployment Toolkit (RDT) to enable SAPESCO gain competitive edge in its marketplace,” said Kevin Graybill, Global Head, Oil & Gas Industry, HCL Axon.
