Course informationCourse Summary

The latest release of the SAP Oil & Gas Secondary Distribution (OGSD) add-on will be available in the fourth quarter of 2014. At the same time, we will start a brand new openSAP course that will give you a complete overview of the capabilities of this solution and the benefits it brings for downstream Oil & Gas companies.
During the course, you will learn about the technical installation and the many applications that come with OGSD:

OGSD Telesales adds value to the standard order-taking applications in Sales and Distribution, with comprehensive customer information and a greatly improved order-taking process.

With OGSD Data Collation, you can automate the typical business processes in the downstream business to a high degree, reducing errors and enhancing productivity.

Integrated Dispatch Management is a powerful truck dispatching solution for bulk deliveries, and helps significantly reduce costs for the truck fleet.

Retail Fuel Network Operations offers a new solution for managing typical business processes at service stations, like stock management, fuel sales, and fleet card management.

Continuous Product Replenishment helps monitor stock levels in tanks and calculates reorder points based on actual local temperatures and individual consumption.

In this course, you will learn how to use these and many more OGSD 7.0 applications to gain greater value from SAP installations in downstream Oil & Gas companies.

This is an overview course and is open to everyone. You need no previous knowledge of the industry or SAP Logistics in general. The course is targeted at a broad audience. Consultants, customers, partners, account executives, and sales experts will all gain considerable insight into the OGSD solution.
