EBusiness Programs

Darryl Gate, VP Client Services, Cortex

eBusiness is providing us the tools required to manage the commerce process in a cost-efficient manner. More importantly, eBusiness needs to equally benefit both the Buyer and the Supplier for it to truly be adopted. Although the focus now is on cost, eventually, when the commodity recovers, we will see organizations needing to scale-up quickly. By introducing eBusiness solutions today, Buyers and Suppliers not only ensure they can manage in today’s environment but can also do more with less tomorrow. 


  1. How can you maximize existing investment in your ERP, vendor relationships and human resources to do more?
  2. What does the future look like for eBusiness: is it a solution that benefits both the Buyer and the Supplier?
  3. How can eCommerce companies leverage their accumulated knowledge from the past 15 years to help you find better opportunities in Oil and Gas tomorrow?
