Drive towards digital transformation
Having previously used SAP Business One, the company needed an integrated, more efficient solution that would not only meet its operational needs, but would also enhance reporting and visibility, and help bring new entities on board quickly.
Pillar Oil has deployed Infor SunSystems Cloud and HxGN EAM from Infor Gold Channel Partner Progressive TSL. Underpinned by Progressive’s Best Practice Industry Framework, which is designed to configure the solution to meet the very specific industry standards inherent in the upstream oil & gas sector.
“With deep expertise and experience in the upstream oil and gas sector in this region, Progressive really is the go-to partner for organisations like us that need a financial management solution to support the taxation and regulatory nuances of both the industry and our geography. Given the nature of our business, and the agility needed when opening up new entities, having both a partner that understands our needs and a solution that can meet them are paramount.”

Key Benefits of SunSystems and HxGN EAM solution:
- Improved procurement processes
- Streamlined financial management
- Cloud access anywhere, anytime
- Enhanced reporting
- Reduced risk and improved security
- Supports Nigerian working practices, taxation and regulatory issues
“Having identified a need to replace its previous system from SAP, Pillar Oil required a fully integrated platform to support its financials, crucially with industry-specific capabilities built in to reflect the nuances of the Nigerian oil & gas sector. Opting for an Infor cloud deployment to take advantage of reduced risk and improved security, as well as a much easier way of supporting a remote workforce, the energy leader really is in the best position from which to pursue its expansion plans and scale as market dynamics dictate.”
