This year has seen an increased uptake in Merridale’s web-based fuel management software, FuelWorks. For the first time in the company’s history, the active number of Merridale web-based software users has now overtaken the number of desktop software users, FuelFX.
This important milestone lends itself to the huge demand in the marketplace for control processes that are quicker, easier and more efficient. Web-based fuel management software naturally ticks those boxes and users benefit from always having the latest and most capable software on the market to provide them with reliable information whenever they need it.
Merridale’s web-based FuelWorks reporting software is the software of choice when it comes to gathering, managing and reporting accurate fuelling data to fleet operators in the UK. With FuelWorks being accessible through any standard web browser, the flexibility and accessibility enjoyed by the end user is enhanced. There is no need for software to be installed onto office computers and the customer can avoid extensive training, security, and backup issues.
With the software being securely hosted by Merridale and accessible online using a dedicated username and password, there is often no requirement for IT departments to be involved in the setup. Customers also like the ability to access their fuel management software on their mobile phones and tablets, ideal if they are offsite and need to make a quick amendment or check some data.
Because Merridale’s FuelWorks software has been designed and developed in-house by Merridale, it is often updated and improved to ensure that customers can rely on a current and capable service. Through listening to customer requirements, Merridale have implemented a number of key features to help make the fuel management reporting process easier for the end user.
For example, Merridale have a number of customers who are FORS members and who are required to produce specific environmental impact information across their vehicle fleet as part of their membership. Merridale have developed their software with the ability to automatically produce, schedule and email these necessary reports to anyone that needs them, including exception reports to help identify rogue performing vehicles.
With scheduled reporting, users no longer have to access the software to run reports every time they need them. Merridale will work with the customer during setup to ensure the correct settings and parameters are present within the software. From there, the customer can add any user with an email address to automatically receive a report weekly, monthly or however often they need the information.
For any fleet operators considering fuel management systems or an upgrade to their current installations, Merridale’s sales team are happy to discuss any requirements and arrange a demonstration of the web-based software using Microsoft Teams. This gives potential users the opportunity to view the software, see the capabilities and understand how the technology could help to improve their fuel control process.
For existing Merridale fuel management users, Merridale can upgrade most existing systems to make them compatible with FuelWorks, no matter how old the system is. This means they can be online and taking advantage of the latest web-based reporting software sooner than they think, without having to shell out on costly replacements.
