Situation at Oilfield Service Provider

This global client relied on multiple standalone software applications for its back office operations, and these disparate data sources made it difficult for leadership to fully understand the state of the business. Cross-platform processes were cumbersome and time-consuming, making it difficult to perform monthly close activities.

The client sought to replace its core systems with one integrated cloud solution to strengthen its foundation and modernize business operations. Specifically, the client was looking to:

  • Adopt standardized best practices to manage financials, supply chain, transportation, projects, and human resource systems
  • Implement a single source of truth and provide real-time visibility into all aspects of the business to improve decision making
  • Replace disparate systems with a modern, global enterprise platform

I wanted to recognize and thank the AST team for their efforts and commitment over the past 15 months and the successful completion of all of the cutover activities. The dedication of you and your team at AST was very evident and appreciated, especially given the challenge of bringing this project live amongst the backdrop of COVID-19 quarantines. Congratulations on a job well done!”
