OMV Petrom Gas S.R.L. relies on GAS-X Sales. GAS-X Sales is a modern IT solution that allows companies to react flexibly to market requirements. Thanks to the close collaboration between Sopra Steria and OMV Petrom, the legacy system was deactivated only eight months after the project started. Owing to OMV Petrom’s lean product catalogue it was possible to model all active billing products using GAS-X Sales’ standard interfaces. Implementation also included the integration of GAS-X Sales into the existing IT landscape and, as a result, into the communication processes with upstream and downstream systems.
In the course of the project, it became clear that adjustments to the product catalogue and price products were required. Those adjustments were specified and implemented quickly and were ready for productive use in no time. Downstream controlling processes or reporting features were also supported on a short-term basis. Sopra Steria Consulting has not only established GAS-X Sales as a billing system for gas and service contracts but new processes as well. Existing workflows were streamlined and improved to be more service-oriented. OMV Petrom is taking a step forward by using contract forecasting, which is one of GAS-X Sales’ features that are designed for downstream processes.
Everybody involved in the project, i.e. specialised departments at OMV Petrom Gas S.R.L. and the OMV parent company, integration partners and Sopra Steria staff, was working hand in hand to tackle any challenges that arose in the course of the project.
