Kwik Chek & McCraw Oil Company Choose PriceAdvantage SMART Fuel Pricing
Kwik Chek Stores to Manage Fuel Pricing More Efficiently With Automation
Colorado Springs, Colo., April 08, 2014 — PriceAdvantage, a division of Skyline Products, announced today that McCraw Oil / Kwik Chek has chosen PriceAdvantage SMART Fuel Pricing™, a fuel price management solution, for their Kwik Chek company operated stores and dealer stores throughout Texas.
Kevin Smartt, CEO of Kwik Chek and Bill Wilson, President of McCraw Oil were looking for a fuel pricing solution that could find additional margins and efficiencies in their business. Smartt and Wilson needed a tool to reduce the time it takes to get data from the stores and then quickly turn around a price change to their Gilbarco and VeriFone POS systems. After months of evaluating various solutions, they decided that PriceAdvantage SMART Fuel Pricing was the best in class. They found that PriceAdvantage not only automated this process but also provided the price change confirmation feedback that was critical.
“We selected PriceAdvantage because their team understands our business needs and ultimately provides the best out-of-the-box solution giving us optimal fuel pricing control and management,” said Smartt.
“With our dealer locations we were experiencing delays in getting our pricing strategies implemented in a timely manner. PriceAdvantage allows us to be proactive to market changes, and gives us the pricing accountability and efficiency we need. This will allow us to capture additional profit for both our dealers and for McCraw Oil,” said Wilson. “We’re excited to begin the roll-out and look forward to a quick implementation.”
Chip Stadjuhar, CEO of Skyline Products, said “We are delighted to welcome McCraw Oil / Kwik Chek to our customer family. They are an influential and growing organization that will see increased performance with PriceAdvantage and we are eager to help them prosper with improved business processes and profitability.”
