The downstream IT solutions provider Implico Group and the digital transformation and IT consultancy Minsait, an Indra company, have formed a partnership.

Together, they said they “will guide and support oil and gas companies in Latin America, the Iberian Peninsula and Italy in their digitisation endeavours. The key to this: powerful SAP technology enriched with specialist downstream solutions and services.”

At the heart of the union between Implico and Minsait lies the aim to introduce their customers to the many 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).

Implico said these benefits include increased levels of automation and digitalisation which result in more transparency, security, scalability and efficiency in day-to-day business.

Both Implico and Minsait have said they 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 purposefully they can position themselves in a market that is hard to predict and constantly in motion.

“This is especially true in today’s – and tomorrow’s – oil and gas landscape, which is heavily impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.”

Tim Hoffmeister, CEO of Implico, said: “By running time- and resource-heavy processes automatically in the background, companies free-up valuable resources and provide the agility, reliability and capability needed to position themselves ahead of the curve. Together with Minsait, we are looking forward to helping many new customers to make their businesses fit for the future with innovative, capable SAP solutions.”

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. The two companies said they will “combine their strengths to help their customers transform quickly, smartly and lastingly.”
