Fuel Retailing From the Cloud

Fuel Retailing From the Cloud
The fuel retail and distribution industry meets from 26 to 27 June in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, for the Asia Fuel Retail Conference 2018. This two-day fuel industry event targets the markets of the Asian countries. International software and consulting company Implico will showcase its innovative service station management solutions for the conference participants, particularly its successful cloud solution iGOS.

Following last year's great success, the Implico Group will be exhibiting at the Asia Fuel Retail Conference again this year. Headquartered in Hamburg, Germany, the company has a subsidiary in Malaysia and is therefore familiar with the Asian service station market.

The Implico downstream experts will demonstrate to visitors their latest IT solutions, which significantly speed up and simplify the operation as well as billing processes of fuel retail networks. The key element here is the iGOS solution, which enables all processes to be transferred to the cloud. This benefits businesses in various ways as there is no need to establish or operate a complex IT infrastructure, and virtually all of the data communications between sites, or with business partners, is fully automated. iGOS is ideal whenever a logistical structure needs to be changed quickly – in the event of a merger and acquisition (M&A), for example. The solution is also a good choice for smaller companies who do not have the resources to invest heavily in an IT infrastructure.

Technology that delivers a competitive edge
"In countries such as the Philippines, which has liberalized its fuel retail market, we see more and more smaller, independent oil companies competing with the global players. We see this as a future trend as more Asian countries liberalize their markets" says Nordin Salleh, Managing Director of Implico in Malaysia. "These companies are looking for technologies that will give them the competitive edge they need. In iGOS, we have the solution." Whether it is deployed to automate consumption forecasts, carry out delivery route planning, fleet card billing or inventory accounting – this powerful cloud solution will dramatically reduce the workload involved in operating service stations.
