Optimising the build and maintenance of complex physical assets, such as plants and heavy equipment, can be highly complex and challenging but can no longer be ignored.

Material Management

Developing robust systems and business practices in Procurement and Materials Management can be beneficial to most businesses. However, while the need to improve in this area is often clear – take for example excess stock, the absence of volume discounts or frequent operational delays - taking action that addresses the problem at its root without creating new issues elsewhere can be challenging.

At AG we are not purely technologists, we are solution engineers. What this means is that we are concerned with and understand the bigger picture, ensuring that our solutions address key business problems. We have extensive industry experience in solving Supply Chain and Inventory Management real-world challenges. We combine this knowledge with deep SAP expertise to create high quality, practical and effective solutions.

Project Systems

In most organisations, there is a need for a strong and reliable framework for managing projects to reduce process inefficiencies, reduce risk and increase visibility and transparency. By far the biggest challenge in Project Systems for Enterprise Asset Management is the need to closely integrate across multiple business and sometime complex specialist areas.

AG have deep expertise across SAP’s functional areas, from Project Systems to Investment Management, offering the full scope of integration with EAM Project Systems, from core SAP to highly complex specialist areas. AG helps you to define or refine business and systems processes that truly drive project Excellence.

Maintenance Excellence (EAM)

Maintenance Excellence (EAM)

When this leading independent exploration and production (E&P) company embarked on a 4-year journey to set new standards in safety-critical maintenance, they chose AG as their SAP implementation partner.

AG developed the SAP design, defined the standards in SAP of huge amounts of complex maintenance data and carried out all data remediation activity. The work allowed the company to achieve IT processes and data in SAP that were fully aligned to their business and industry best practice – such as ISO 14224. While their Maintenance Excellence Programme is not yet complete, with the help of AG they are fast realising a fully structured, preventative and predictive approach to maintenance management.

AG Smart Solution for SAP PM Data

AG Smart Solution for SAP PM Data

When this large gas and electricity provider struggled to keep maintenance data up-to-date in SAP, they asked AG for help. Previously, any change requests would be directed to a central IT team who would take up to 8 weeks to action the updates. Errors were also typical due to lack of maintenance knowledge.

AG gave engineers control back over their data. Using Winshuttle, they built a form-based solution that incorporated extensive logic and added features, such as SAP user governance. The forms provided an easy-to-use interface for directly updating SAP in real time and catered for many requirements. This hugely improved lead times and data quality while also allowing IT to focus on value-adding tasks.

AG Smart Automation Replaces BPO

AG Smart Automation Replaces BPO

AG helped this major UK energy provider to significantly improve the process for creating Project Accounting master data in SAP. The company was experiencing long delays and data quality issues due to shared ownership, knowledge gaps and insufficient system and process governance.

In fact, while Finance would provide project figures, it was the task of an off-shore team, who had the SAP knowledge, to enter data in the system. Using Winshuttle, AG developed a smart, user-friendly interface that allowed Finance to directly input project data into SAP easily, in real time and without error. This eliminated the need for the off-shore overhead while improving data governance and quality.
