Fujitsu unveils SAP qualified IT solution for CGD sector [Apr 2012]

IT services company Fujitsu introduced a SAP qualified rapid deployment solution for the city gas distribution (CGD) segment in India. According to a statement released by the company, Fujitsu’s CGD ERP solution incorporates end-to-end business processes to offer a flexible, scalable and cost effective solution.
“Today most CGD companies are inclined towards leveraging ERP for enhancing agility and operational efficiency in business, but are reaping limited value, despite significant spending. Fujitsu’s CGD ERP solution’s modular approach brings flexibility to its customers. It helps them to implement ERP in a phased manner, to spread total investment over a period, while its pre-configuration features offer lower total cost of ownership”, the statement said.

During FY 2005–2010, CGD consumption in India has grown over 30 per cent to reach a current level of ~ 8.5 MMSCMD. According to Mr. Gupta, “The piped natural gas distribution is poised to play an important role to offer cleaner source of efficient fuel for residential, industrial and commercial consumers in the country”.
