MEMBER NEWS: Two Aberdeen technology firms collaborate to bring new ERP to market

STC INSISO and ANSA Data Analytics have announced the official launch of a cutting-edge enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution designed to enable organisations to optimise their operations. The development of this innovative platform for operations teams, represents a significant six-figure investment by STC INSISO, underscoring their commitment to business solutions excellence.

Centerpoint ERP is anticipated to contribute to 20% of STC INSISO’s £5 million turnover over the next 18-24 months, reflecting the company’s robust confidence in the platform’s capabilities and its potential impact on business outcomes.

The platform has been identified as an ideal ERP solution for well intervention and well based operations service companies, with Well-SENSE Technology Ltd. being one of the first customers to deploy Centerpoint ERP and reap the benefits.

Richard Gordon, Operations Supervisor at Well-SENSE, shares his experience of using the ERP system: “Prior to using Centerpoint, everything in our company was tracked by spreadsheets. This was extremely inefficient, with no connectivity between them, meaning there were a lot of multiple data entries required to keep everything up to date.

“Centerpoint has allowed us to collate our assets, logistics, operations project and QHSE into one focused solution, streamlining the whole process. It has made a significant difference to the efficiency of the operations side of our business.”

The creation of the software is the result of a strategic collaboration between STC INSISO, a leading provider of innovative business solutions and tech company behind the technology-enabled root cause analysis software suite, COMET, and ANSA, a market leader in data-driven insights. This partnership combines STC INSISO’s expertise in developing robust business applications with ANSA’s proficiency in leveraging data to drive intelligent decision-making.

The two companies have worked collaboratively for more than a decade, and Centerpoint was born out of a need in the industry for an ERP solution specifically designed to help organisations manage the movement of goods, people, and assets. The successful development of the innovative software reflects a 50-50 commitment from both entities, whose aim is to simplify the lives of businesses by leveraging their combined expertise to deliver cutting-edge solutions.

The decision was taken to develop the product following research from STC INSISO and ANSA which revealed that 70% of the organisations they engage with had a need for an affordable ERP solution.

Centerpoint ERP fills a big gap in the market with its rapid deployment capabilities and affordable costs. It offers a great opportunity for businesses of all sizes, including SMEs, to benefit from an innovative solution that would otherwise be out of reach. Centerpoint ERP is a highly viable option for organisations looking to streamline their operations and improve their productivity for a fraction of the costs usually associated with ERP systems.

In a joint statement, leaders from both companies, STC INSISO and ANSA, expressed their excitement about the launch of Centerpoint ERP and its potential to transform businesses.

“We are thrilled to introduce Centerpoint ERP – a culmination of our combined expertise and commitment to empowering businesses with innovative solutions. Centerpoint ERP is not just a software platform; it’s a catalyst for growth, efficiency, and resilience in an ever-changing business landscape,” said Arrash Nekonam, Chief Technology Officer, STC INSISO.

“We believe that the collaborative efforts of STC INSISO’s development expertise and ANSA Data Analytics’ data-driven insights will set a new standard in the ERP space. Centerpoint ERP is designed to be a strategic asset for businesses, enabling them to navigate complexities and achieve their goals,” added Maurillio Addario, Analytics and Software Engineering Director, ANSA.

AREG is the original energy transition organisation, working on behalf of members to empower the energy supply chain and champion its expertise. Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to find out more about membership.

AREG has played an important role in the growth of Scotland’s renewable energy sector, engaging the supply chain and developing the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. However, we are only at the very beginning of the transition that AREG was established to both lead and support so there are still opportunities for companies to get into the constantly evolving renewables supply chain. We look forward to continuing our work together as renewables builds on its place as Scotland’s main source of power, and as we seek to deliver real change in the crucial areas of heat and transport.

Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce has worked closely with AREG since its formation. The recent progress in the developments of offshore wind projects by Equinor and Vattenfall are as a result of the work of the group over many years. The north-east is known as the oil and gas capital of Europe. At the Chamber, we believe the region must evolve its position to being recognised as the energy capital. Whilst hydrocarbons will continue to be essential in driving our economy for years to come, the generation of renewable resources will play an increasingly important role in providing cost-effective power, innovative development and economic growth.

The enthusiasm and dedication of the early group that would become AREG was fundamental in us choosing to launch All-Energy in Aberdeen. The first tiny show was held in 2001, and AREG’s Chairman at the time, Jeremy Cresswell, played such an active role that I often describe him in terms such as All-Energy’s ‘midwife’. All-Energy is now the UK’s largest renewable and low carbon energy exhibition and conference in terms of number of attendees, space booked, and number of exhibiting companies. As AREG became firmly established, their presence and support for the event grew spectacularly over the years. We thank them most sincerely for their invaluable input.


Vattenfall has forged a strong working relationship with AREG through the development of the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. AREG has worked tirelessly on behalf of the North East and it can take enormous credit for the growth of sustainable energy in the region and the path it has cleared for the region to capture further investment.


Aberdeen City and Shire is emerging as a key location for renewables by successfully transferring its world-class oil and gas expertise into the sector and AREG has done much to advance this through a broad range of initiatives. It has acted as a catalyst in driving further investment in the local economy by engaging with companies, Government, public bodies and existing projects and we have been pleased to support their efforts. Scottish Enterprise will continue to engage with AREG as we increase Scotland’s use of renewable energy.
