Use Telapoint SmartReplenish fuel volumes with PriceAdvantage to optimize fuels pricing
The PriceAdvantage team is excited to announce the successful implementation of Telapoint SmartReplenish with PriceAdvantage, where fuel volumes are pushed from SmartReplenish to PriceAdvantage, allowing fuel analysts to quickly adjust fuel pricing strategies based on near real-time fuel sales.
With access to near real-time fuel inventories, fuel managers are using PriceAdvantage to adjust pricing strategies mid-way through the day based on how many gallons have been sold through a milestone period in the day such as the morning commute. If volume sales for the day are low at the noon hour, the fuel manager may decide to adjust fuel prices lower to be more aggressive during the evening commute and recover the lost volumes. Or if sales are robust and inventories are low, the fuel manager may decide to raise prices in order to make sure there is enough inventory to meet demand until the next fuel delivery. Instead of waiting for fuel volume sales information to be updated the day following the close of business, this integration makes the information available the same day.
This integration comes at the specific request of several mutual customers of PriceAdvantage and SmartReplenish who need to optimize fuel prices more and more rapidly in response to the ever increasing volatility and pace at which things change in fuels price management. This integration is already in production at customer sites and is available immediately for any fuels business with both PriceAdvantage and SmartReplenish.
