Accenture to merge Tullow’s supply chain and finance

SAP-based business transformation to leverage Accenture’s Enterprise Services for Energy.

Tullow Oil has awarded Accenture a management consulting and systems integration contract to ‘transform’ its finance and supply chain functions. Accenture is to design and implement a new SAP-based solution to replace the existing systems. The new system promises to integrate technology and business processes through the development of a new ‘target’ operation model.

Accenture will work with Tullow to implement the financial accounting and controlling module of the SAP ERP Financials solution, materials management with the SAP ERP application and the SAP for Oil & Gas set of solutions. Accenture’s Enterprise services for energy methodology will underpin the transformation and the company will provide change management support to Tullow’s teams.

Tullow CIO Andrew Marks said, ‘We selected Accenture based on its industry expertise and its understanding of our operating model.’ Accenture had been working with Tullow since 2011 on SAP deployment in accounting during which time the need for integration with the supply chain became ‘increasingly evident.’ More from Accenture.
