Implico Group has announced that it has formed a partnership with Minsait, an Indra company. Together, they will guide and support oil and gas companies in Latin America, the Iberian Peninsula and Italy in their digitisation endeavors.
The companies aim to introduce their customers to the benefits of forward-looking SAP downstream solutions, such as SAP S/4HANA SDM (Secondary Distribution Management for Oil & Gas) and SAP S/4HANA RFNO (Retail Fuel Network Operations). These benefits include increased levels of automation and digitalization, which result in more transparency, security, scalability and efficiency in day to day business.
Both Implico and Minsait are convinced that oil and gas companies must streamline and target their operations via digitalisation now more than ever. The better their internal and external processes are designed, the more direct and purposeful they can position themselves in a market that is hard to predict and constantly in motion. According to Implico and Minsait, this is especially true in today’s – and tomorrow’s – oil and gas landscape, which is heavily impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
“To either become or remain industry leaders, O&G companies must fully bank on digitalisation,” underlines Tim Hoffmeister, CEO of Implico. “The SAP downstream solutions SAP S/4HANA SDM and SAP S/4HANA RFNO mark a key step in an enterprise’s journey to become smart and digitised. By running time- and resource-heavy processes automatically in the background, they free valuable resources and provide the agility, reliability and capability needed to position oneself ahead of the curve. Together with Minsait, we are looking forward to help many new customers to make their businesses fit for the future with innovative, capable SAP solutions.”
Cesar Salan, Director at Minsait, points out: “These days, all market participants in downstream face the same challenge – namely to keep their margins intact in a disruptive, volatile environment. To achieve this, they must digitise their businesses and render their processes lean, flexible, aim-oriented and efficient. Implico and Minsait have the knowledge, mindset, connections and technology to make this happen.”
Implico is the only software factory for SAP in the fields of secondary distribution and fuels retailing. As such, it has deep technical knowledge and unique consulting experience in regard to SAP S/4HANA SDM, SAP S/4HANA RFNO and other innovative IT solutions for oil and gas. Minsait has a global footprint with subsidiaries in 57 countries. It is a long-running SAP partner with a roster of international top-tier clients. In the course of their new-formed partnership, both companies will combine their strengths to help their customers transform quickly, smartly and lastingly.
