Talisman’s UK unit has awarded a two-phase SAP software support contract to Aberdeen-based SAP consultancy, Absoft. The five year contract, which is valued at £500,000, covers a range of services to support Talisman’s SAP system. The newly-implemented SAP system, which supports the company’s finance and joint venture accounting, is to go live in the first quarter of 2005.
Absoft MD Ian Mechie said, ‘This deal demonstrates our ability to meet corporate SAP requirements and strengthens our position in oil and gas. Key elements for Talisman Energy were flexibility, knowledge transfer, local support, SAP experience and a relationship offering both partnership and independence.’
Absoft’s consultants will provide on-site support and training during the initial transitional phase of the contract. Phase two will see the Absoft’s service provision move off site. Absoft’s customer base ranges from Scotland to mainland Europe, South America and the Middle East.
