Varec and Gilbarco Veeder-Root Partner to Bring Integrated Fuels Management Across the Fuels Supply Chain
FuelsManager Can Now Capture and Integrate Fuel Transaction Data at the Point of Sale to Provide Complete Asset Management from Tank Farm to Fleet
January 10, 2018 – Atlanta, GA - Varec, a petroleum industry innovator and wholly-owned subsidiary of Leidos, a FORTUNE 500® information technology, engineering, and science company, has partnered with Gilbarco Veeder-Root, a technology leader for retail and commercial fueling options, to integrate commercial fleet fuel management systems with bulk fuel management operations.
Varec is exclusively offering its FuelsManager technology and Gilbarco Veeder-Root’s Gasboy IslanderPLUS system as an integrated solution that will enable fuel suppliers to have complete oversight of assets from the tank farms, terminals and load racks, through commercial fleets at the point of sale. Major oil and gas suppliers and defense agencies across the globe use FuelsManager to provide visibility, inventory management and control of their petroleum assets. IslanderPLUS provides 24/7 terminal systems that support multiple access technologies. Both are compliant with the Department of Defense’s military grade cyber security standards.
“Our FuelsManager solution has provided commercial and military tank farms and terminals with comprehensive tools such as inventory management, accounting and terminal automation for over 20 years,” said Tim Archer, Chief Technology Officer at Varec. “This agreement enables Varec to offer the Gilbarco Veeder-Root IslanderPLUS as an integrated component of our FuelsManager solution, which greatly extends our fuels management expertise into the fleet management sector and continues our role as a leading innovator in the petroleum sector.”
FuelsManager will interface directly to the Gasboy IslanderPLUS Fleet Management System terminal, to manage the complete fuel sale process. This is done in real-time at unmanned service station facilities and other fuel points. With this integration, fuel suppliers are able to validate authorized users and payment methods before fuel delivery commences. The combined solution will update FuelsManager with completed transaction data for timely and accurate reconciliation. This data can then be integrated at the enterprise to provide suppliers with a complete view of their assets across the fuels supply chain.
“Choosing Varec as a strategic partner to sell our Gasboy IslanderPLUS as an integrated solution for fleet fuel management just made sense,” said Kevin DeVinney, Director of Dispensers and Fleet Systems for Gilbarco Veeder-Root. “Their customers will now have access to fleet data in the same system they use today.”
The integrated solution operates online or offline as it is capable of validating data locally or remotely, enabling real-time validation and data transfer, manual operation or batch transfer of completed transactions. FuelsManager can also manage the Gasboy IslanderPLUS using a variety of wireless methods.
This combined fleet fuels management solution is ideal for state and local agencies, commercial organizations and military operations. For more information, please contact Varec via email at email@example.com or by phone at 1-866-698-2732.
