Towards the end of 2007, CAPSA decided to embark upon a process transformation project through the renewal of its management systems, with the objective of consolidating the group’s operations using a world class tool that would allow the replacement of current systems and custom applications. After several months of analysis, CAPSA selected JDEdwards-Oracle, version 8.12 as the management tool and Grupo ASSA as the company that would carry out the project.
CAPSA is a locally owned company with a long tradition in Argentina. Focused on the energy business and headquartered in Buenos Aires, the company operates oil fields near the city of Comodoro Rivadavia. In addition, their subsidiary company CAPEX SA operates the Agua del Cajón gas fields in Neuquén province, where the company has equipment to transform the gas into electricity (with installed capacity of 670 MW), which is later transferred directly from its turbines to the national power grid. This is the first completely integrated facility in Argentina.
To implement a management tool for all the company´s businesses based on a unique model, identifying opportunities for improved systems integration and allowing for greater process and information flow efficiency and timeliness.
CAPSA selected Grupo ASSA as a result of the approach and methodology proposed in order to understand CAPSA´s business model during the selection stage, in addition to Grupo ASSA’s experience with similar JDEdwards-Oracle based projects.

“The methodology and approach applied to the project in order to define a management model based on the market´s best practices and integrated with the JDEdwards-Oracle application, were the determining factors in the selection of Grupo ASSA as the supplier to integrate the solutios”.
