Innovation comes from the partnership between SAP and Petrosoft.
This award-winning innovation leverages Petrosoft’s IoT Site Integration Network, SAP HANA, and Petrosoft Enterprise powered by SAP Business One to automate processes related to equipment monitoring and field service management. It addresses the way retailers manage repairs and maintenance of the assets and systems that affect their daily operations.
By integrating the real-time, non-invasive KPI measurements of site and equipment conditions with Petrosoft’s cloud-based predictive analytics, Petrosoft Enterprise powered by SAP Business One predicts equipment failure. It also dispatches the necessary service resources within an optimized time frame with automated service requests. This innovative solution enables a retailer's processes to evolve from reactive methods to a proactive “on-demand” model for field service management. This model allows operators to maximize utilization of their maintenance and service resources while also:
Maximizing equipment uptime
Minimizing the cost-of-service
Improving brand management
The entire enterprise also benefits from this innovation since it integrates with SAP’s leading global ERP platform, SAP Business One. It creates one book of records that is used across an enterprise. For example, the records created by field service visits can be used by finance to record the use of parts during the maintenance visits into the general ledger.
"Petrosoft is honored to win SAP’s Top Innovation Partner award. It helps to highlight how technology can improve a retailer’s operations by leveraging Petrosoft’s market-leading application suite and SAP’s market-leading ERP platform, along with our retail and downstream petroleum industry experience. It has brought about innovation that improves how retailers manage their assets and systems," said Sergei Gorloff, Founder and CEO of Petrosoft.
"SAP and Petrosoft have worked closely together over the last year to produce innovation and value for customers by integrating SAP Business One powered by SAP HANA with Petrosoft Cloud," said Luis Murguia, senior vice president and general manager, SAP SMB Business Unit. "The results, and this award, speak for themselves. We highly value our strong global partnership with Petrosoft, and we consider Petrosoft Enterprise Powered by SAP Business One to be a best-in-class, highly innovative, and powerful new entry in the global SMB market."
