In the capital-intensive world of exploration, joint ventures (JVs) are a common vehicle to help reduce the financial and operational risks of standing up new projects. How can you tap into ERP innovations to manage the complexity of accounting records, partner reports and financial transparency? Deloitte can help optimise the modern Oracle Financial Cloud solution to speed implementation and bolster your organisation’s ability to grow. Deloitte applies industry-specific leading practices to help clients increase utilisation, reduce costs and gain analytical insights that drive results.
In addition to managing the overall venture, JV operators must perform numerous back-office functions such as remitting expenses, collecting revenues and distributing them to the various partners according to their respective agreements. But when it comes to effectively managing this complex financial web, many of today’s technology solutions fall short.
Niche solutions frequently don’t provide complete financial management capabilities and they often lack the latest innovations such as analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities for automating key processes for finance, supply chain, indirect procurement and human resources.
Meanwhile, enterprise-level solutions can be expensive and time-consuming to implement, which is especially burdensome for mid-sized operators. And, they often fall short in delivering the full range of essential JV-specific services that operators need.
Oracle Joint Venture Management Cloud—part of the latest release of Oracle Financial Cloud—helps operators address these shortcomings and provide a modern ERP backbone. And Deloitte can optimise implementation of the out-of-the-box, pre-configured Oracle solution that is poised to deliver continuous innovation. This modern ERP delivers a single application through which operators can drive compliance with the terms of joint operating agreements, seamlessly link financial transactions to JVs and automatically process both incoming and outgoing JV transactions.
The result? More timely financial closes, more accurate calculations of JV partners’ shares of expenses and revenues and improved abilities to research and resolve questions or disputes.
