The ultimate goal for downstream fuel and logistics companies is to move to a fully automated, 100% digital workflow for all orders, deliveries, reconciliation and invoicing. The driving mechanism will be a centralized connection point that brings everything together.
The ordering module brings the traditional on-line buying process to the fuel space. You know what you want, how much you want and when you need it. Great. Open the desktop or mobile application, choose the location, type of fuel, punch in the quantity and hit submit. Boom. You’re done and the delivery is now being scheduled.
A fully integrated, end to end solution, from site and tank monitoring, auto order creation, scheduling and dispatching to delivery confirmation, BOL reconciliation and clean data getting pushed to the accounting system. In short, monitor, schedule, track and confirm.
In no other industry in the world do you take delivery of goods or services and then wait a week to get an invoice. We know what was picked up, what was delivered, where it was delivered and what the agreed up on price is. Great. The invoice is now in everyone’s inbox.
We call this the triangle of goodness. The platform knows what was ordered + scheduled, what was picked up and what was delivered. Great. If all three of those things match, push that information to the accounting system. If those things don't match, kick it out and have someone review to determine where the disconnect is.
