Absoft partner with Neptune to develop custom built web apps for upstream oil and gas

Aberdeen-based specialist SAP consultancy Absoft has partnered with enterprise mobility experts, Neptune Software, in Norway, to develop a suite of custom built web applications for SAP users in upstream oil and gas.

Neptune’s Application Designer solution allows developers to create bespoke SAP apps for mobile devices or desktops with user friendly interfaces, which in some cases, has reduced developer’s time by as much as 70%.

With easy to use drag and drop design functionality, ABAP and SAPUI5 developers can create apps for HTML5 with minimal up skill for simple JavaScript with a turnaround of only one to two days. The unique value Neptune offers is user friendly and mobile deployable solutions for any business, irrespective of the complexity of their SAP system configuration.

Neptune Software was established in 2011 by former SAP employees looking to bring a new and enhanced user experience to clients.

Before Neptune, conventional apps could only be used with standardised SAP systems and often required system upgrades first. Users can now benefit from the reduced time and cost to implement bespoke commissioned apps, with cross-platform web or device deployment suitability and easy integration with existing SAP infrastructure.

Andreas G Sulejewski, Channel Management Director, Neptune Software, commented on the new partnership with Absoft:

“We are excited to be working with a new partner which has such in-depth experience within the oil and gas sector. We see a great potential in industry specific apps within the oil and gas market and Absoft has already proven its development skills with Neptune”.

Absoft and Neptune will use their combined expertise on remote logistics, supply chain, inventory and maintenance solutions, as well as utilising their strong capabilities in HR, finance and analytics to develop apps which intend to streamline processes in upstream oil and gas.

The recent refocus of Absoft’s service lines, aimed at driving operational excellence through best practice use of SAP in upstream oil and gas, includes SAP enterprise mobility solutions which can be deployed quickly to streamline processes and record accurate and real-time information in the field.

Don Valentine, Commercial Director, Absoft commented:

“Absoft is delighted at the prospect of working with Neptune Software to develop and deploy mobile apps for the upstream oil and gas sector.

"We know from our engagement with our many contacts in the industry just how difficult it can be to source mobile apps which support upstream ways of working and which are founded on a proven, robust application lifecycle technology.

"The Neptune Application Designer gives Absoft the platform to leverage our upstream process expertise and our technical SAP skills to develop and maintain mobile apps which will revolutionise SAP- based processes in the sector”.
