How BP is Leveraging Technology to Energize Supplier Relationship ManagementWATCH WEBINAR
With commoditized products, changing distribution models, uncertain demand and volatile pricing, the conventional energy sector faces a formidable challenge: Lowering operating costs while continuously driving innovation and efficiency. External factors such as natural disasters, cartelization, geopolitical challenges, and the emergence of alternative energy sources make it even more difficult. This is why the energy industry has increased its reliance on external suppliers to provide critical business outcomes, both in ongoing operations like IT as well as to drive engineering breakthroughs (seismic imaging, acoustic sensing, reservoir simulation, etc.).
In an industry that outsources almost everything, the traditional, manual approaches for managing these critical services contracts are due for a major upgrade. A significant opportunity exists to recapture margins and improve buyer-supplier relationships through integrated management of such engagements across the full lifecycle of the contract.
