BP enlists REPL Group for major BP RESET project
REPL Group has worked with BP as a strategic partner on BP RESET, a programme to modernise its retail site IT offering.
REPL rolled out a new head office, back office and stock management system to operate in thousands of its retail stores globally. The solution also included developing digital applications for hand-held terminals to improve employee efficiencies on-site. In place of existing set-ups, REPL and BP implemented cloud-based technology that can change and adapt as the latter’s business demands evolves.
“In a very joined up way BP, REPL and other partners formed a very strong delivery team that is running a global programme to build the foundation for BP’s digital strategy,” comments Markus Krieger, Programme Director, BP. “On the whole journey we were always pushing the edge by bringing innovation in all areas, from ways of working over commercial models to solution and test automation, including the use of robotics.”
He adds: “Where delivered we can now access detailed data-driven insights to boost employee engagement and enablement, alongside delivering an exceptional customer experience. Thanks to a fully-integrated, intelligent set-up that has the ability to introduce the power of machine learning to the forecourt, speed, convenience and control will be possible for hundreds of our employees across our stores and head office, as well as our customer.”
The programme is set to be expanded to a further 10 countries over the next five years.
