Accenture has entered into a two-year agreement with oilfield services company Q’Max Solutions.
The agreement will see Accenture provide Q’Max with strategy and management consulting services, digital technology, and systems integration, in order to help the company better execute its growth strategy.
Accenture’s strategy and consulting teams will work to ensure the smooth integration of newly-acquired businesses with Q’Max. The company will also help reduce material, equipment and services spending through a strategic sourcing initiative.
Q’Max Solutions will benefit from Microsoft Dynamics AX, which will be implemented by Accenture and Avanade. With this enterprise resource planning solution, Q’Max will be able to consolidate various legacy business applications, improve business performance visibility, and deliver more efficient data management.
Accenture will also work to develop shared service operating models for Q’Max’s business units, technology and R&D functions. This will help to improve teamwork and standardise business practices.
Other IT improvements that will be carried out include local network optimisation within business units and the development of a globally consistent IT infrastructure.
Accenture and Q’Max first collaborated back in 2014, and the companies have worked to create a new digital supply chain operating model, a global cloud infrastructure, and the development of a standard suite of global engineering applications that can be leveraged at well sites serviced by Q’Max.
“In the latest phase of the project, our Q’Max teams are taking the right steps to realise and sustain the benefits we achieved last year,” said Chris Rivers, CEO of Q’Max. “In today’s low-price commodity environment, these benefits are important to our ongoing growth through greater consistency in product quality and service innovation.”
“Q’Max is placing digital technologies at the heart of its business strategy to drive efficiencies and support the company’s aggressive growth plans,” said Erik Olson, managing director in Accenture’s energy business. “The company is stretching its enterprise boundaries by tapping into the latest digital technologies, such as cloud as a service, and its new digital supply chain operating model, to prove that lower cost and enhanced service can go hand in hand.”
