Having the right software to handle large capital projects, complex international accounting, regulatory compliance, and intricate asset management is a major differentiator for energy companies.
Energy companies are looking to replace manual processes in the field and in their operational process with software solutions that can provide faster insights into actual costs. This allows management to make better and faster decisions, especially in rapidly-changing commodities markets. ERP Advisors Group can help energy companies differentiate the rich functionality of best-of-breed industry solutions against general ERP solutions that provide more of a platform play for the future.
ERP Advisors Group will help your Energy company define requirements, set your software strategy, provide a roadmap, conduct a diligent vendor selection process, and manage the entire implementation.
We will define your software needs and wants as well as how you would ideally use new automated solutions across your entire energy company, whether you are an electricity generation, upstream, downstream, or midstream oil and gas, biofuels, solar, wind, or hydropower company.
After finalizing your ERP software and services contracts, EAG stays with you to oversee your implementation until you successfully go live. We will oversee integrations, data migration, change management, budgets, design and configuration, walkthroughs, training, testing, and go-live cutover and will provide executive and project sponsor support throughout the duration of your project.
We assist with all components of migrating your data: extraction, cleansing, transformation, and loading into your new system to ensure you have complete confidence in the accuracy of your data at go live.
Surveys across our energy clients reveal the most common reasons why they need new ERP to automate their business:
We had started our own process of selecting new software and decided to engage EAG after another oil and gas company referred them to us. They are knowledgeable and very engaged in the entire process. Having them on our team gives us peace of mind knowing that experts are looking out for our best interest. It is easy working with them.
We are 100% independent ERP consultants, and we never take commissions or payments from any vendors. Combining our objectivity with our white-glove selection process, you will be absolutely certain that you are selecting the right software and implementation resources.
"EAG brought a lot of value to our project. First, was their knowledge of the different software possibilities on the market. It was helpful for us to understand all of our options. This allowed us to avoid narrowing our options unintentionally or through bias. "
