SUPPLY CHAIN UNITED

The Digital Future of Downstream

STAY UNIQUE, SUCCEED TOGETHER

Smooth and easy collaboration along the value chain

The Supply Chain United (SCU) addresses the key challenges of the today’s and tomorrow’s fast-moving downstream industry. Essentially, it is a broad architecture of web-based micro services – readily available and easy to use. These handy auxiliaries are smart, digitized and purpose-driven. Also, they are lean, flexible and user-friendly. And they build upon shared best practices and common industry standards. Companies across the downstream value chain (and beyond) can leverage them without the requirement of making huge investments upfront.

The individual components of the SCU empower forward-looking oil and gas companies to elevate their main business processes and key work areas. In their entirety, the SCU services form a full cloud ecosystem founded on standardized functions, data and API-based integration.
