Fast-moving and ever-changing, the downstream sector is an exciting sea to sail on. Technological innovations, economic developments and structural changes are but some factors that constantly affect upon the industry and its representatives. I keep hearing and reading this: To stand their ground in such an environment, the participants in the downstream supply chain need maximum agility, flexibility, predictability and security at any point. Especially for their core business, they need solutions that are quick-to-implement, easy-to-use and providing immediate benefits. From April 1 to 3, the latest of these solutions will be shown at the International SAP Conference for Oil and Gas 2020 in Basel, Switzerland.

Driving intelligent downstream processes: New SAP S/4HANA downstream solutions

Implico is proud to be there as a sponsor, speaker and exhibitor – and our agenda will be packed! We will showcase the latest release of the SAP S/4HANA downstream solutions: On the show floor, we will present use cases for next-gen oil and gas logistics processes and fuel retail network management – live and in action. For practical advice, our customer MTV Förster will enter the stage together with us. In a dialogue with me and my colleague Marvin, the service station network operator will share valuable insights on the effective utilization and concrete benefits of the SAP downstream solutions. For hands-on learnings, we will offer a workshop on ”Solutions and Perspectives on Fuel Retailing Logistics and Service Station Experience Management” together with SAP. And we will also hold a showcase session.

Connecting the downstream supply chain with SAP co-innovation apps

A central topic for us will be the showcasing of our co-innovation apps with SAP. “Connected Truck” makes life a lot easier for oil and gas downstream companies. It links truck drivers and ERP systems. This renders the fetch and deliver process much more transparent, convenient and efficient for all parties involved. Another co-innovation app is “Connected Depot”, which provides an online check-in for drivers approaching a terminal – similar to the one that airline passengers use to check in for their flights. We look forward to introducing both co-innovation apps at our stand.

The downstream supply chain of tomorrow – united and connected

The future of the downstream supply chain is being written by all of us. Let's get connected and drive the change together. If you are going to attend the International SAP Conference for Oil and Gas 2020, make sure to visit us at the Implico booth.

See you in Basel!
