HOUSTON -- Dutch Oil Co., a gas retailer and fuel wholesaler selected on-demand software and service firm FuelQuest Inc. to install its Fuel Management System (FMS) to streamline fuel distribution and fleet operations for approximately 100 retail service stations including its company-owned and operated locations, dealer-owned stores and independent retail sites, FuelQuest stated.
In addition, the Mississippi-based company will use the system to improve complex and labor-intensive fuel management processes with an automated solution, the company stated.
"FMS is the ideal fit because it eliminates multiple separate systems for tracking fuel costs, inventories, distribution and financial reconciliation," Tommy Gilreath, CFO of The Dutch Group Cos. said in a statement. "With FMS in place, we are able to consolidate our in-house manual systems and systematically boost productivity to support our aggressive growth plans."
Dutch Oil will initially utilize FMS' Voice Response Unit (VRU), Transportation Scheduling and Strategic Sourcing modules, which allow the company to interact with branded suppliers and find price advantages in unbranded markets, according to the company.
"With the volatility of fuel prices in today's market, FuelQuest is empowering industry veterans like Dutch Oil to better serve their diverse customer base and provide a solid platform for growth," Rich Cilento, president and CEO of FuelQuest, said in a statement.
"With reduced dependence on manual processes and complex internal systems, FMS will automate and standardize processes to diminish their freight costs and improve fleet utilization," Cilento said.
