Tank to bank solutions for fuel retailers

UCS Technology Services is the leading service provider to fuel retailers in Southern Africa. Their Tank to Bank offering addresses the complete forecourt environment and convenience store environment through a wide range of solutions and services.

The South African fuel environment is complex and competitive: demands on the fuel retailers to introduce new services and offer faster service places a strong requirement on integrated automation throughout the site. This is true for large corporates, independent fuel retailers, and multi-site owners.  Consumers demand convenience and speedy service. In the past few years, the retail fuel market has seen the introduction of smarter payment solutions at your car, and today, the convenience stores offer speciality store-within-a-store concepts. Even for the independent fuel retailer, coffee stations, baked goods and other profit centres are big opportunities.

These same complexities are true of the forecourt environment - the technologies that control pumps, monitor attendant tagging, and manage power have fuel retailers questioning how to manage their environment cost-effectively, and without adding complexity from multiple service providers.

 “UCS TS’s Tank to Bank solution offers a single point of accountability and services management that drives down costs for fuel retailers,” says Brenton Thomas, executive of the Fuel Services division at UCS TS.  “As an organisation, we have the greatest scale of any fuel service provider in the country, with an ability to ramp up rapidly to take on new business. The acquisition last year of JVPS boosted the services UCS TS provides, which now includes civils and over 90 Fuel Pump Verification Officers and Fuel Pump technicians.”

Tank to Bank’s expert solution and support infrastructure covers all aspects of the forecourt and fuel retailing in South Africa, and provides service wherever fuel retailers are situated.
