With the availability of the ERP-SAP management software and EGAS petrol station management system, Petrolimex’s electronic data is a prerequisite for the easy and accurate issuance of electronic invoices throughout the system.

Additionally, State management bodies will also find it more easier to search for information for examination purpose. The project benefits all, consumers, the State and enterprises as well.”
