PwC Canada, a leader in providing advisory services, and Quorum Software, the leader in digital transformation for the oil and gas industry, signed a joint business agreement on Sept. 10.
Quorum and PwC Canada are collaborating on digital transformation initiatives for the midstream sector of Canada’s oil and gas industry. The new joint business agreement makes it possible for midstream oil and gas companies to drive efficiency with Quorum software solutions paired with PwC Technology Advisory services.
