Paradigm Technologies Inc. (PTI) and JD Edwards (JDE) are teaming to integrate and market a new accountancy and Enterprise Resource Allocation (ERA) package. The new software will integrate PTI’s Excalibur Energy Management system with JDE’s OneWorld package. Target areas for the new development effort are joint-interest-billing, AFE, and reporting in both domestic and international contexts. PTI president Brian Searles said “The partnership with J.D. Edwards will elevate Paradigm’s premier upstream product offering into the major international and domestic upstream markets.
Paradigm can now offer a platform independent, enterprise-wide solution that melds our expertise with OneWorld to provide a fully multi-currency, multi-lingual upstream product that will bring benefits to both independent and major oil and gas producers throughout the world.”
Marketing of the new solution to the small and mid size US market will be performed by PTS while JDE will handle larger domestic accounts. International sales will be through JDE’s UK base. Arthur Andersen is helping out with product design and will be a preferred implementation partner for the joint solution in the international market.
JDE group VP William Goodison adds “We're not only committed to facilitating collaboration between oil and gas suppliers and customers but also to providing the only enterprise software solution that enables our customers to put their ideas into action quickly in the e-business environment.” PTI, founded in 1979, develops and markets integrated financial and operational software solutions for over 300 oil and gas companies, and employs 100 people in its Dallas, Denver, and Houston offices.
