KA Management Takes Control of their Fuel Inventories with Pinnacle’s Fuel Smart Platform

San Diego, California – KA Management is utilizing Pinnacle Corporation’s technology to manage fuel inventories with Pinnacle’s Fuel Smart® Platform.

KA Management started managing fuel inventory to support their real estate business. In order to meet the fuel demands of sites they owned, they needed not only to automate, but to optimize and manage by exception. It was also important that their fuel system operate effectively and independently, sending alerts and information to management working remotely.

“I travel quite a bit, and it’s a comfort for me to able to manage fuel from another country, especially knowing I can handle 99% of any issues that come up,” says Bryan Jones, head of IT and Business Software, just before heading to Europe.

Double Quick Takes Control of their Fuel with DWS

Indianola, MS – Mississippi-based Double Quick (www.doublequick.com) uses Pinnacle Corporation’s Dispatcher Workstation™ to more effectively control their fuel inventory, ordering and dispatching when working with Fuel Smart®.

Family owned, with 51 retail fuel locations, Double Quick was looking for a fuel management solution that would give them better control over inventory. They needed to have an internal process to know best when to get readings, what load delivery turnaround times are for site locations, and be able to project sales for each site location.

With Dispatcher Workstation, Double Quick is able to have complete control over fuel inventory with effective ordering and dispatching. Product run-out has been drastically reduced and is now a rare occurrence. They are also able to resolve paperwork issues quickly when a store is out of balance.

“Being able to configure custom rules and get alert notifications via email when rule conditions have been met has eliminated the need to continuously monitor tank inventories,” says Carson Crawford, Staff Accountant at Double Quick.
