Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) October 02, 2013
Aster Group, one of the largest selling and consulting partners for SAP’s Business Planning & Consolidation (BPC) application, has just released a SAP BPC Starter Kit for Upstream Financial and Operational Planning for the oil and gas industry and will be debuting it at the Best Practices for Oil & Gas event in Dallas October 6-9.
The Starter Kit leverages the power of SAP BPC tools to transform how oil and gas companies create budget and planning forecasts. It offers prebuilt, proven components tailored especially for upstream businesses and will reduce the time and cost of implementation, helping oil and gas companies make a smoother transition to SAP BPC and quickly reap the benefits of the solution.
“Planning is critical for oil and gas companies, but financial planning is not a core competency of drilling engineers and other operational staff,” says Rick Cobb, Aster Group president and co-founder. “Tools often lack ability to span financial and operational needs. With SAP BPC and our Upstream Financial and Operational Planning Starter Kit, oil and gas companies can react quickly to the volatility of the market.”
The Starter Kit for Upstream Financial and Operational Planning was designed to:
– Dramatically reduce the time it takes to build a forecast.
– Update the plan automatically – in real time – as new data is entered.
– Forecast and report at multiple levels of detail, down to an individual well head.
– Readily incorporate live data from your general ledger and economic modeling applications.
– Quickly run “what if” analyses based on changes in commodity prices and other planning assumptions.
– Evaluate the impact of acquisitions and divestitures.
