DENVER, Jan. 26, 2015 /CNW/ -- mcaConnect, LLC (mcaConnect) announced today that Plains Midstream Canada (PMC), an indirect subsidiary of Plains All American Pipeline L.P., has chosen the AX4energy Joint Venture Accounting module for Microsoft Dynamics AX, developed by mcaConnect.
Based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, with assets across North America, PMC focuses on midstream activities – the wide range of facilities and services needed to connect oil and gas producers with refiners, petroleum dealers and other customers. PMC needed an effective, industry-specific Joint Venture Accounting solution for its crude oil and liquefied petroleum gases (LPG) marketing, storage, terminaling, and transportation operations.
The company is upgrading to Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 and sought a solution that could work in concert with this Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) platform. After a detailed review of available solutions PMC chose the AX4energy Joint Venture Accounting Solution from mcaConnect to meet its business needs.
