“Despite everything we hear about the digital oilfield, our industry still relies on paper documents and email when exchanging documents with their vendors and other partners. PakEnergy Exchange will help our customers significantly lower their operating costs and increase the efficiency of their back-office staff while providing better customer service for their vendors, owners, investors and partners,” said Brent J. Rhymes, CEO of PakEnergy. “Teams who switch to PakEnergy Exchange for AP automation reap tremendous benefits in productivity, G&A optimization, and cash flow visibility that can uplift margins by enabling more precise inbound expense accrual. But unlike other AP automation solutions, PakEnergy Exchange supports any oil & gas document. Land Departments can automate the distribution and execution of division order letters using PakEnergy Exchange’s secure portal and digital signature features, eliminating waste from paper DOs and postage. Owner Relations organizations can automate the distribution of Owner Statements. We can automate literally any paper or email-based, intercompany document exchange process.”

Inefficient physical mail and e-mail create substantial costs, delays and frustration for oil & gas companies who must exchange a large volume of documents with an extensive ecosystem of vendors, investors, owners, and partners. These documents are often time-sensitive and require multiple approvals or signatures. Nowhere is this pain felt more acutely than accounts payable departments who process hundreds or even thousands of paper invoices per month. For CFOs, this creates reporting delays that impede a clear view of inbound expenses while creating a never-ending challenge for the operational accountants responsible for keying-in invoices, chasing down approvals, keeping vendors happy, and managing 1099 mailouts.
Unlike typical document exchange networks, PakEnergy Exchange makes it easy to establish digital connections with vendors, owners, partners and investors using a familiar, social media-style interface. Users simply “friend” any participating organization on the network. Joining the PakEnergy Exchange network takes five minutes and is as easy as signing up for LinkedIn or Facebook.
“I normally receive around 300+ invoices a month, and PakEnergy has cut my time in processing and paying vendor invoices by around 60%,” said Lea Ann Stevenson of TYGR Operating Company. “This program is going to save you so much time and the company money that you will be totally blown away.”
