Scott Wallace, IT Advisor of Continental Resources, explains how OpenText solutions helped to improve operational efficiency by enhancing document generation and management processes within SAP applications.

The Challenge

As a leading oil producer, the Oklahoma-based company, that tightly collaborates with thousands of employees, subcontractors, assigns, legal representatives and investors, needs to deal with millions of documents in an efficient, transparent and with State Law and regulatory procedures compliant way.

Each time, Continental Resources is onboarding a new investor, a document package needs to be created, delivered to the investor, filled out, delivered back to Continental, processed internally and delivered to corresponding government institutions. Each investor is being informed about where Continental is in the process. This is usually done by sending the investors a legal notice, which contains specific information on their surface and/or mineral interest. Each month the investors get a personalized report. All of the business communications are done via mail and email.


The company was facing a range of challenges on a day-by-day base:

  • Labor-intensive document creation, management, and transmittal processes.
  • Human errors due to manual document processing.
  • Manual paper document storage and retrieval, with:
  • Inability to quickly verify documents that had been sent or returned when a signature was required.
  • Inability to tie back owner information data in SAP
  • Inability to produce information or reports quickly for management.
  • Low production rate:
    – Daily: 1.6 wells/32 letters
    – Weekly: 8 wells/160 letters
    – Annually: 416 wells/8,320 letters


Manually dealing with this giant amount of communications is not only complicated and time-consuming, but also error-prone. Therefore, after a long evaluation process, the company decided to implement OpenText ECM and CCM solutions, and turned to Ecodocx for help.


The Solution

The company knew that they were lacking in expertise and needed help from a qualified team of experts, that would not only have strong expertise in this space, but would also understand their industry-specific requirements, and meet their business needs. Therefore, Continental Resources turned to Ecodocx. 

The team of Ecodocx provided the following services:

  • End to end implementation of OpenText Document Presentment for SAP Solutions from the blueprint to post go-live support

  • Customization of OpenText Document Presentment for SAP Solutions to meet specific business requirements

  • Customization of OpenText Extended ECM for SAP Solutions to meet specific business requirements




Results and Business Benefits

  • Automates manual processes and streamlines search capabilities to save time and money.
