We can help you to run your fuel oil business as efficiently as possible.
The lack of visibility on tank levels is a source of multiple pain points!!! This lack of knowledge impacts operating margins, and makes forecasting demand difficult at best. It can result in higher costs for both you and your customers and contributes to higher churn.

INCREASED CUSTOMER SERVICE LEVELS
Monitoring with Magnus allows oil distribution to offer higher levels of customer service which helps keep the customers you have for longer and acts as a great incentive to acquire new customers. In time, this service will help you increase the number of customers of a payment plan model resulting in better stock control and a cash flow that is spread more evenly throughout the year, not just in peaks and troughs.
FEWER DELIVERY TRIPS
Once you know the level in a customer’s tank, you then know the number of trips required to keep them topped up over the year. If an average customer gets a top-up 3 times a year this could now drop to 2 without concern for example. For 1k monitors, this will save 1000 deliveries, plus the costs involved, per year without a drop in revenue.
REDUCE MARKETING COSTS
Whether it be a cold snap, snow on the ground or an upcoming holiday period like Christmas, people tend to panic order which clogs phone lines, ties up drivers on unnecessary deliveries, stretches delivery times increasing potential customer churn contributing to lowering margin, this will be a thing of the past with Magnus. As the number of your monitored customers grows, the number of unpredictable and emergency callouts reduces. This in turn means that the majority of the orders and workload can be managed during normal office hours reducing the need for overtime and the associated costs.
There are potential savings in multiple areas, be it stock forecasting, drawing stock from the terminal, costs of storage in depots, costs of moving stock between depots all the way down to managing the volume of stock each tanker has to carry. it can minimise return trips to the depot for filling up or allow you to service more customers with the same tanker capacity. Either way it can deliver savings.
