CLOUD BASED SOFTWARE VS PC
REMOVE THE NEED FOR A PC IN YOUR FUEL MANAGEMENT
Many of the fuel management systems that are sold today use software that is installed on the customer’s PC or server for managing the data from the FMS.
This software can cost from around $1,000 to $4,000 depending on the number of sites and the feature set of the software and normally there is an ongoing maintenance fee.
It also means that access to the software is restricted to those who have access to the PC/server.
In contrast, a cloud-based system requires no software installation and, with some system, there is no upfront fee and no ongoing fees.
A cloud-based solution means the data can be accessed from any device that has a browser.
Having a cloud-based FMS also means changes to the features on the web site are immediately available to all customers and avoids the need for the IT department to install upgrades and/or patches.
It also allows us to easily update software in the units remotely and provide support without needing access to the customer’s network.
“The employees love this new system. It is much easier to fuel the vehicles because it recognizes the vehicle number and assigns the type of gas the vehicle requires.
We can enable or disable the employees from fueling within a matter of seconds, which is a great feature, and reconciliation is also a must have – especially in the State of New York.
Since we switched to the SmartFill GEN 2, product reconciliation has never been easier.” - David Richards
