Optimising Infor SunSystems for growth
Dana had been utilising the leading financial management system in the oil and gas industry, Infor SunSystems, but recognised they were not maximising its potential. With the release of SunSystems 6.4, it presented an excellent opportunity to upgrade their existing system to benefit from its rich functionality. As an Infor Gold Channel Partner specialising in SunSystems implementations and specific energy sector needs, Dana chose Progressive, with their wide experience in implementing finance systems for Oil & Gas E&Ps, to guide them through the upgrade process.
One of the project’s key objectives was to replace a third-party reporting tool with the standard Infor Q&A reporting application, which is included with Infor SunSystems 6.4.
“Infor SunSystems has been serving the accounting needs of the global oil industry for more than 25 years. It is ideally suited to this industry due to its strong analytic and multi-currency capabilities, its openness to integrating with industry-specific extensions, and its ability to operate anywhere — in what can be challenging locations. In the oil industry, parties often need to have new operations or joint ventures up and running in just a few months and may then wind them down just a few years later. Speed is critical. The ability to get SunSystems up and running rapidly is, therefore, a massive advantage for joint venture accounting typical in the international oil industry.”
