Infotech Lead America: Tullow Oil has selected Accenture to design and implement a new SAP solution.
As part of the contract, the oil exploration and production company will replace accounting and supply chain systems. Accenture will manage the integration of the technology and business processes across these two functions through development of a new target operation model.
Accenture will implement the financial accounting and controlling module of the SAP ERP Financials solution, materials management with the SAP ERP application and the SAP for Oil & Gas set of solutions, using Accenture Enterprise Services for energy companies.
In addition, Accenture will also undertake change management work to support the teams and processes that benefit from the integration.
In early 2012, Accenture and Tullow Oil conducted a feasibility study on implementing one standard platform across both business functions.
“Our feasibility study demonstrated that implementing an SAP solution across both our finance and supply chain functions will create a more cost-effective, standardized operating model that will allow us the flexibility for future growth,” said Andrew Marks, chief information officer of Tullow Oil.
“This integration will provide Tullow Oil with an advanced platform to manage its business in a more time- and cost-efficient way, benefiting its customers, employees and suppliers,” said Johan Nell, client director and managing director in Accenture’s Energy business.
