Fuel retailers adopting cloud-based solutions to lower ownership costs
Florham Park, NJ - June 6, 2013
KSS Fuels is pleased to announce the addition of two new clients to its cloud-based fuels pricing solution, PriceNet Cloud. Miller Oil and Schmuckal Oil join a growing list of fuel retailers looking to lower ownership costs and enhance application-related services by eliminating the investment in computer hardware and related maintenance costs.
PriceNet Cloud provides the same pricing capabilities as its on-premise version, enabling fuel retailers to react fast to market and competitor changes and to apply advanced analytics to enhance decision-making.
“Moving to a cloud-based version of PriceNet will enable us to see immediate cost savings and will give us the opportunity to benefit from a broader range of services from KSS Fuels,” stated Jeff Miller, president and CEO of Virginia-based Miller Oil.
“As well as reducing our IT-related costs, using PriceNet Cloud means we always have the benefit of a high performance computing platform ensuring our infrastructure doesn’t delay getting fuel prices out to the street,” stated Dave Waldron, vice president of operations at Michigan-based Schmuckal oil.
“We’re delighted to see more clients adopting our PriceNet Cloud solution,” stated Bob Stein, president and CEO of KSS Fuels. “The twin benefits of lower ownership costs and value-adding business services available through the cloud continue to attract fuel retailers of all sizes to seriously evaluate a move to cloud.”
