Indian power firm teams up with SAP

29/04/2014 by


It has been revealed that the Indian energy firm Azure Power is to implement new SAP enterprise resource planning (ERP) software with the help of Accenture. As Azure Power expands across India, it needs more resources to drive and support the growth of its business; when SAP has been rolled out across its network, it is hoped that the solar power company will be able to bring renewable energy to more customers than ever before whilst outperforming the competition.

Azure Power is currently India’s leading independent solar power company, providing its energy resources to a large and diverse group of consumers. As the business generates more leads and sees increased growth, it is important for the company to have a well-renowned, established and high-quality business tool to help. The company has chosen SAP as its software provider and will be rolling out the new program across its network in the coming months with help from multi-national management consulting and outsourcing services company Accenture.

When implementing ERP, it is often crucial to utilise an expert in the field to ensure that there is minimal overrunning in terms of both time and budget. With Azure Power requiring a system to better enable it to budget, forecast and plan, SAP is the ideal fit; in addition, the latest software acquisition will enable the energy firm to improve its supply chain whilst developing more accurate revenue projections for the future. It is hoped that this will enable Azure Power to expand its solar footprint across India with rapid speed, particularly as the SAGE software will provide a scalable solution to deal with complex business transactions.

Inderpreet Wadhwa, Azure Power’s chief executive, said: “We are leading the solar revolution in India by bringing the cost of solar energy from INR 17.97/KWhr in 2010 to INR 5.45/KWhr in 2014 and are working with the government and all stakeholders to reach grid parity by 2017. While we are growing at a very fast pace, it is essential for us to have our core business processes automated with adequate controls in place and we are excited to start our relationship with Accenture to manage our growth better.”

Elsewhere, Accenture’s India-based operating manager, Sandeep Dutta, explained that an increasing number of companies are entering the renewable energy market. By supplying them with the right business architecture, Azure Power should be able to grow and outperform the competition and fully achieve its expansion strategy.
