Even in today’s advanced world of cloud and systems automation, there are still a significant number of energy companies that heavily rely on legacy systems and time-consuming manual processes to run their day-to-day operations.
It’s no surprise that most energy and utility companies running on old technologies and systems are stuck dealing with inefficiencies which lead to a major time-sink with manual processes straining the workforce across all departments. Those that want a strategic advantage are adopting NetSuite as their cloud-ERP system to overcome the issues faced with legacy technology.
