"The SmartengoTM platform is the first step in the digital journey that we have just launched with VallourecTM.smart, our smart services. It will create value for our customers. They are now able to get tubular solutions online easily and reliably, with a few clicks, while still benefiting from Vallourec's know-how and quality," explains Yvan Rivaux, Director of global services and digitals.
The SmartengoTM platform makes it possible to buy around 15 different OCTG (Oil Country Tubular Goods) threaded seamless tubes. This targeted offer is available quickly and will give operators greater flexibility. For example, it will help them finish equipping their oil and gas wells very quickly, in Europe and Africa to start off with.
Vallourec customers and their representatives can go to smartengo.vallourec.com and check immediately to see if the tubes they're looking for are available and how soon. Customers can make purchases online alone, or get help from their usual sales representative. Information is updated in real time. The quote is automatically sent to the back office and payment is run as usual, offering a transparent online experience and real savings in time and ease of use.
