Situation

Business operations at Consol Energy were partly supported by an 18-year old legacy system. The accounting, supply chain, and key business operations involved several stages of manual intervention and no longer met Consol’s business requirements. The intense manual effort involved in back-office operations made month- and year-end activities incredibly inefficient and nearly impossible.

Consol required a complete transformation of its business operations by replacing the legacy ERP system with a modern cloud platform. The client needed a solution to automate and streamline its business processes and provide significant improvements through the reduction of manual transactions and integration complexity across the enterprise, while also providing the adaptability for future growth and technology.

AST’s cross-pillar expertise and specific industry knowledge with ERP transformation led Consol to select AST as its partner of choice. AST performed a detailed assessment of the challenges faced by Consol with its existing ERP system, proposing Cloud roadmaps that addressed all challenges.

AST’s ERP implementation helped Consol Energy improve the accuracy of accounting transactions and business processes, enabling them to focus on decision-making with accurate, real-time information.”
