Media Release: Adept Solutions appoints client director


ABERDEEN-based IT software and services company, Adept Solutions, has appointed a client director to drive its ambitious global growth strategy.

Steve Penman has been installed in the position as Adept looks to capitalise on major opportunities it has identified for its range of production data products and services within the oil and gas sector.

Steve is now responsible for driving Adept’s expansion plans with a particular focus on the company’s Axis product – an agile, configurable hydrocarbon accounting system that provides the energy industry with improved data integrity and operational insight.

Steve brings with him impressive experience, having held a number of senior management roles within the IT business sector for more than 20 years.

During that time, he specialised in business development and managing large scale projects; at times overseeing teams of up to 200 personnel, who could be based across borders in multiple international locations.

Steve has gained particular expertise in hydrocarbon accounting, making him the ideal candidate to lead Adept’s efforts to position Axis as the ultimate allocation tool for the oil and gas sector.

He says that he’s delighted to be joining the company at what is such an exciting time: “When I was shown Axis, I very quickly recognised that the product offers operators just what they have been crying out for; a flexible hydrocarbon accounting system which delivers assured data integrity in months rather than years.

“Considering this, I jumped at the chance to come on board. I have defined an ambitious growth strategy, targeting a number of market sectors, and believe that when operators worldwide see for themselves the value that we can add to their business – and when they talk to our growing list of satisfied clients – orders are sure to follow.”

Richard Alderson, managing director of Adept Solutions, added: “We’re extremely pleased to welcome Steve to Adept. He has the specialist knowledge, expertise and experience to help us capitalise on the many opportunities that are opening up for us, not only within UK North Sea operations, but also across Europe and West Africa.

“It’s essential that we capitalise on these developments and Steve will now play a key role in turning the opportunities into results, as we look to position Axis as the number one hydrocarbon accounting system in our target markets.”

Established in 2006, Adept Solutions has a strong international focus, supporting clients across Europe, Africa and Asia.

The company’s primary product, Axis, is an intuitive, easy to use hydrocarbon accounting system, which is used by operators to provide timely and reliable production data to government, partners and internal consumers. Highly flexible, Axis can be easily tailored to meet the requirements of each individual client.
