Veeder-Root has released The PLUS VIEW, a new mobile application for Android and iOS [Apple] based phones and tablets. This free application connects to your TLS-450PLUS, TLS4i, TLS4c, and TLS-450 automatic tank gauges to give you quick access to inventory, compliance, and alarm information.
For busy owners, operators, and managers of multiple retail fuel sites it can be difficult to get a quick picture of what’s happening onsite. While you might be able to get a status update from your employees, the discussion requires that they stop serving customers and that they know the fuel inventory or active alarm status at a given moment. A clear understanding of your fueling network's current operating status is key for making sound business decisions.
Whether you are measuring inventory by dipping tanks or with an automatic tank gauge, the stick or probe measurements are only as good as the tank chart that you reference when calculating the ullage. While tank charts do not cause a loss of fuel, an inaccurate tank chart will affect inventory and delivery data collected and could contribute to masking actual fuel losses.
It is estimated that fuel runouts and retains cost an average c-store $3,000 per year in profit. The majority of the margin lost during a fuel runout is on in-store purchases as customers drive off when fuel is unavailable. Mismanagement of fuel inventory levels is extremely costly, so it is important to correctly forecast your fuel usage.
