The downstream IT experts Implico Group and Aquarius Software have announced a new partnership. They are collaborating on future-oriented automation and digitalisation projects in Latin America.

Implico said the common aim is to “guide downstream companies on their digital transformation journey and help them to make their supply chains fit for the future. Together, we will implement innovative technology, such as the terminal management system OpenTAS, at our customers’ sites.”

To continue its global growth strategy and access a very promising market, Implico Group said it “strives to work with strong local partners – especially in Latin America, a key area for the oil and gas trade of today and tomorrow”.

The company is particularly eager to bring its next-gen terminal management system OpenTAS to the region’s huge tank storage sector. For this, Implico Group said it has found a perfect match with Aquarius Software, headquartered in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Combining their deep know-how and experience, the two partners aspire to introduce their clients to the many benefits of digitalisation, such as streamlined processes, increased transparency, better collaboration and more safety along the entire supply chain.

Thomas Roller, Head of Sales & Marketing at Implico Group, said: “Aquarius Software has a thorough understanding of the downstream industry plus a wide-spread network, a spotless reputation and a forward-looking mindset.

“Sharing similar aims and values, we look forward to drive digital transformation for oil and gas enterprises in Latin America together. In fact, we are already at it. The cooperation agreement has already been signed and the first implementation project is underway.”

Marcia Campos, Executive Director & Partner at Aquarius Software, added: “We always look for the best solution for our customers. Implico is recognised in this market with awarded solutions and numerous customers worldwide.

“There is a natural synergy between the companies, which have a strong focus on digital transformation and clear orientation towards their customers’ businesses. I am sure that this partnership will lead to more project opportunities for both companies as well as strong benefits for our customers.”
