Leading Exploration and Production Company Goes Live on Verian’s Cloud-based Purchasing System as Crude Oil Prices Fall

“We chose Verian because of their deep understanding of our industry,” said David Malone, Manager – Joint Interest Accounting at Energen.

Verian announced today that Energen Corporation, a leading oil and gas exploration and production (E&P) company, is now live on Verian’s cloud-based purchasing system, which is tailored for the oil and gas industry, just in time to realize savings as crude oil prices plummet.

Prior to implementing Verian, Energen was using a homegrown purchasing process, but saw the need to replace it with a system that would provide vital insight into all spending to maintain profitability and ensure scalability for anticipated growth.

Energen’s vision around modernizing their purchasing process included

  •     Streamlining the processing of purchase order (PO) invoices by accounts payable
  •     Automating a three-way match between PO, receipt and invoice to either trigger “ok to pay” or a discrepancy for review
  •     Delivering rich reporting and analytics to drive profitability and accountability back to investors
  •     Rolling out a mobile system that allows their remote users to get what they need wherever they are
  •     Developing a material transfer and management process to track and value high-dollar commodities

“We chose Verian because of their deep understanding of our industry,” said David Malone,
Manager – Joint Interest Accounting at Energen. “Their ability to streamline our material transfer process and integrate with our industry-specific systems made this an easy decision for us. We couldn’t find anyone else that was able to integrate with DocVue and even Excalibur to take into account elements such as JIB decks, wells, leases and cost centers.”

Verian’s Oil & Gas Suite is designed specifically to support the diverse needs of field offices in de-centralized oil and gas organizations, and can help these companies closely monitor spending when it matters most.
