Many fleet operators using Merridale fuel management systems have now made the transition from fuel management software sitting on in-house computers to Merridale FuelWorks, a more flexible hosted (cloud-based) software solution. Here the customers’ data is processed centrally, and reports may be accessed using any device connected to the internet.
In addition to the conversion of longstanding Merridale customers, Merridale has been successful in winning many new customers, some of which have chosen Merridale after thorough appraisal against incumbent vendors. Merridale can now claim to have over 1300 depot installations using the service to transfer fuelling transactions data for processing via FuelWorks.
A major advantage of a hosted software facility is that is operates separately to the in-house IT infrastructure. “There are no complications and transition is totally risk free as far as implementation is concerned, “says Merridale sales director, Stephen Hannan. “You get exactly what has been demonstrated and we can set up the system to go live on day one of the installation of the hardware.”
New customers include Cobley Transport of Leicester who visited the CV show in 2018 in search of a hosted fuel management solution. “It was simply a question of the functionality we required and the credibility of the vendor, says workshop manager,” Chris Beet.
Other notable customers include Gregory Distribution which has installed Merridale FuelWorks following a root and branch overhaul of its depot fuel monitoring systems.
Hardware on display at the CV Show will include the MX Series of diesel pumps with fuel and stock management equipment.
