Plano, TX, November 26, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- SigmaFlow today announced its partnership with Wipro Technologies, the Global Information Technology, Consulting and Outsourcing business of Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT) to deliver the Oil and Gas industry’s most comprehensive ‘Well Delivery’ Solution for Upstream Exploration and Production (E&P) companies. Combining SigmaFlow’s Well Process Management (WPM) platform with Wipro’s expert Energy Consulting and Deployment services, the Well Delivery Solution enables oil and gas companies to dramatically improve their pre-production operations and thereby, productivity.
“A critical problem for upstream E&P companies is accurately forecasting monthly production and efficiently managing multi-department knowledge-worker processes,” said Mark Allen, Vice President and head of the Energy, Natural Resources and Utilities Consulting Practice within Wipro Technologies. “SigmaFlow’s WPM solution leverages the Drilling Rig Schedule to automatically update monthly production forecasts and optimize work prioritization.
“Our partnership with Wipro provides customers with valuable subject matter expertise in oil and gas operations and systems integration,” said Jay Holstine, CEO at SigmaFlow. “E&P employees have long requested a ‘Well Master’ for their pre-production planning and permitting data. Wipro’s integration improves employee collaboration and productivity by providing task-specific context for data imported from other systems.”
This partnership strengthens significant improvements in drilling rig planning and performance tracking, improves well planning and permitting productivity and enables accurate monthly operational production forecasts which get auto-corrected as work is performed. Jump-start process templates enable results to be piloted in weeks, and implementation, training and support can be accomplished within a couple of months for typical oil or gas assets.
Wipro’s Energy, Natural Resource and Utilities (ENU) Strategic Business Unit (SBU) has over the last decade established itself as a trusted partner to clients across the globe to address their business challenges using its deep industry domain competency and technology expertise serving businesses in the oil & gas, metals, mining, agriculture products, water, natural gas and electricity industries.

In 2011, Wipro acquired SAIC's Global Oil and Gas business unit, reinforcing its focus on this industry.
As a leader in Business Process Excellence software, SigmaFlow delivers standards, consistency, and productivity for upstream oil and gas Well Delivery processes, the power industry’s North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) compliance management processes, and for Continuous Improvement Project Management.
