Manually based systems were failing to capture all the volume of fuel being dispensed from the customer’s home base tank, as volumes per month were increasing this became a concern.
Administrators were spending hours chasing down erroneous entries and recording, as well as being unable to establish any use analysis.
To compound the challenge, more than one branch uses this tank creating a requirement for inter branch reconciliation to ensure that the correct branch (and thus the correct plant / job / user) is being captured.
Using the Fuel-IT cloud based software combined with world leading data capture technology means that every litre of fuel used by the site is recorded and captured, even via fuel card.
The site uses a combination of heavy trucks and local plant as well as different divisions through the tank, with average monthly volume around 35,000 litres prior to engagement, calculated on the bulk delivery records not the dispensing records.
The location’s 15,000L bulk storage tank had single manual (Type42) meter relying on manual transaction capture (pen/paper) and without any secure functions to prevent fraud, other than the pump was padlocked each night.
Weekly tank dip provided information (approximate) on volume of fuel in tank, and this highlighted the inability of the users to accurately record data as discrepancy between dip and dispensed was significant.
