Background

Queensland Energy Resources (QER) are a shale oil mining business with considerable focus on building demonstration plants and streamlining the technologies required to commercialise the business. The existing business systems were not set up to provide reliable management reporting.

Business Challenge

A number of applications had been implemented at QER, including Infor’s Sun Financials and IBM’s Maximo Asset Management system. There were a number of issues in terms of delivering the required reporting requirements for the business. This situation was compounded by numerous MYOB databases managing minor entities that needed to be incorporated into the overall monthly reporting view.

Results

CMC provided ERP and Business Systems Strategy, QA Review and Project Management Support to QER. CMC were focused on identifying scoping and delivering the required financial reports by 1st July. CMC project managed an upgrade to Sun Financials and the migration of the MYOB databases into the system. Some minor adjustments to Maximo were also required in order to ensure appropriate information was available in Sun Financials for reporting. The project was implemented in line with the anticipated schedule.
