AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 07/17/13 --  Sparta, a KPIT Cummins
company, and a fast-growing SAP partner in North America, today
announced successful implementation of the SAP(R) ERP application at
Valerus, a world leader in oil & gas processing services. The
multi-country roll-out of contract billing, "Project Whitewater," was
delivered within reduced implementation time and marked a significant
milestone for Valerus to convert its remaining business operations to

capital expense collection, and operational and CO-PA (profitability
analysis) reporting. 
Commenting on the deployment, Christopher Barron, Global Chief
Information Officer and Vice President for Valerus, said, "We named
the rapid deployment project 'Whitewater,' which we thought was an
apt name and representation of the speed and determination with which
we rolled out our new functionality. In partnership with Sparta, we
achieved the organizational alignment, executive sponsorship, and
true collaboration needed to complete our multi-country
implementation in near record time. We are exceedingly pleased with
the end result."
