Capgemini, a global leader in consulting, technology and outsourcing services, announced that it has successfully deployed EnergyPath for Houston-based C&J Energy Services (“C&J”). Powered by SAP S/4HANA®, EnergyPath will now serve as C&J’s single cloud-based system, allowing it to integrate and harness the power of emerging digital and cloud technologies. C&J, a leading provider of well completion and production services to oil and gas exploration and production companies, now has greater visibility and connectivity across operations, from inventory tracking to customer operations at field sites.
After C&J’s acquisition of Nabors Industries in March 2015, the combined entity had seven financial systems across 10 separate businesses and product service lines. Capgemini was selected to consolidate legacy financial, procurement, manufacturing, maintenance, and health, safety and environmental systems on a single cloud-based platform to streamline processes, provide real-time business intelligence and lay the foundation for operating as one company. C&J leveraged the EnergyPath solution to accelerate the SAP S/4HANA implementation on the cloud and simplify business processes.
“The implementation of Capgemini’s EnergyPath is an important component of our strategy to position the company for long-term growth,” said Steven Carter, Chief Information Officer, C&J Energy Services, Inc. “Beyond the immediate efficiencies of consolidation, EnergyPath positions us to leverage emerging digital technologies to better serve customers and support the business as the industry rebounds.”
EnergyPath also provides an infrastructure that supports C&J’s digital transformation efforts as it seeks to grow its business. Enabled by the new system, Capgemini’s SAP-certified FieldSite application, which is built on SAP® Cloud Platform, is used by field technicians to transition C&J from its reliance on a paper-based ticketing process.
By leveraging the mobile app connected to the cloud, field personnel can more efficiently collect, enter and transmit information. C&J anticipates that FieldSite will provide its customers with a more accurate and readable ticket at the oilfield well site, and synchronize this data for timely and precise billing. It estimates that the application could help reduce the number of days between service delivery and payment – known as day’s sales outstanding – which could significantly reduce working capital.
“Market conditions have forced oil and gas companies to re-examine how they do business from an operational and customer experience perspective,” said Brad Little, Executive Vice President and Head of Capgemini’s Energy & Utility Sector, North America. “The EnergyPath implementation is a significant step in C&J’s broader digital transformation efforts, and we look forward to helping them navigate the journey.”
