General Questions

We offer user-based pricing, so your solution price depends on the modules that you need and how many users will access the system (as you grow, you can add users and additional modules).

Contact us to discuss your PakEnergy solution and pricing.

We opened our doors in 1986 to providing oil & gas accounting solutions for operators, investors, first purchasers and service companies.

We’ve developed our own Integrated Document Imaging Solution, which lets you add and view documents, and link them with specific transactions, vendors, employees or owners with one click. This optional module also includes electronic routing and approval of A/P invoices, allowing an invoice to be entered when received and electronically routed to the appropriate user(s) for coding and approval.

The approver has access to a copy of the scanned invoice along with the invoice coding. The system tracks the invoice all along its route and gives users visibility of the pending invoice at all times.

PakEnergy document imaging streamlines your records management, eliminating misplaced documents and the need to pull invoices from files by hand.

It depends on your check layout, which you can verify with our Forms & Scanners department. PakEnergy offers check stock and IRS forms guaranteed to work with PakEnergy (you can also print checks with blank check stock and save money).
Your PakEnergy solution is scalable, from one user to hundreds, and you can add modules as your business needs change or become more complex.

Conversion / Implementation

We customize each project to coordinate data conversion, training, customization and implementation to get you up and running efficiently. Typically, there is no down time as the old system is wrapped up and PakEnergy is ramped up.
