Companies in the oil and gas industry are focused on protecting their business by maintaining capital discipline, seeking new revenue streams to increase productivity and modernizing existing technology for maximized efficiency. 

 To address the possibilities of an over- or under-supplied market, many oil and gas firms are realizing the need for technology with comprehensive business management capabilities that is built to handle the change and complexity inherent to the sector. 

Moving away from legacy systems and point solutions that don’t talk to each other and onto a unified suite of applications that can manage financial, customer and inventory data is an essential step in arming the business for the unpredictable. Obviously, this process requires time, effort and investment, but the upside more than makes up for the initial pain. 

NetSuite’s cloud ERP solution understands that the key to meeting the demands of the oil and gas industry is a system that can address today’s challenges while providing the critical foundation needed for the future.
