After Implementation
In November 2001, BPCL successfully implemented SAP BPCL was one of the very few Indian companies to have successfully implemented ERP Each and every person related to the organization was exposed to all the relevant and real time information. BPCL's revenues grew by 2.28% in 2000-01, even as the revenues of the petroleum industry declined by 3.4%. BPCL's biggest advantage from the ERP implementation was regarding the management of inventory because it was now possible for the company to know the details of receivableof inventories


Introduction of the Petro-card in 1999-00 tested the coordination between the various departments to the fullest Around 2.5 lakh customers were using Petrocard with over 20,000 daily transactions taking place at BPCL's retail outlets Petro-card's success put all doubts about BPCL's ERP implementation to rest throughout the country

> Systems crash and hence one needs to create Data Recovery Centres > Malicious attacks on the software, cases of hacking, etc. > Requires highly specialized personnel to troubleshoot in case of bottlenecks and system failures

> Checks and controls are provided at various points of segregation > Real time information was available > Paper work is reduced, thus saving costs and increasing efficiency

> Stocks are available readily and hence, the Customer can be served better > Provides an opportunity to move into the web-based SaaS model

> The cost of implementation and running of SAP is very expensive > Organization has to spend money on regular upgradation > When the system is down, it is impossible to work
