Over 3,000 Tank Monitors Already Deployed, With an Additional 3,500 Scheduled.
Numerex Corp, today announced a deal using the iTank™ application which supports the tank monitoring capabilities of PetroChoice, a Pennsylvania based petroleum distributor that delivers bulk lubes and fuels for industrial applications in the automotive, construction, mining, and drilling industries, among others.
PetroChoice has a total of 52 facilities in 31 states, making it one of the largest bulk lubricant distributors in the United States. The PetroChoice agreement includes an initial commitment to monitor over 6,000 tanks nationwide.
A Numerex customer since 2015, this deal will provide significant savings and a customized program for on-going support to enable PetroChoice to expand the number of tanks they monitor and improve their delivery operations and customer service. Since February of last year, over 3,000 new tank monitors have been installed and activated on PetroChoice tanks across the country. An additional 3,500 tank monitor installations are scheduled through the end of next year.
Kelly Gay, Numerex COO added:
“We are delighted to announce a scaled iTank rollout with PetroChoice, a nationwide leader in the petroleum distribution industry. This successful deployment is an excellent example of Numerex’s strong commitment to our customers. It demonstrates the great benefits that can be brought to enterprises by a first class end-to-end IoT solution. We are excited to serve prestigious customers like PetroChoice to bring them tangible results from our solutions.”
“We are excited to have found a partner that is willing to grow with us, and Numerex’s tank monitors will enable us to take customer service to the next level,” says Alex Rapp, SVP of Operations for PetroChoice.
PetroChoice currently services over 23,000 customers, and the company’s aggressive growth strategy represents a huge opportunity for Numerex. PetroChoice was attracted to the iTank offering due to Numerex’s unique service offering, which lowers upfront costs to the customer, and focuses on best-in-class service and support to enable fast deployment, and a quick return on investment, typically within the first year. PetroChoice has increased their tank delivery efficiency by 6% in the first 9 months of the project, effectively taking out one stop per monitored tank, while delivering the same volume of product.
