Revolutionizing Oil and Gas Distribution with TrackGas V5

Mar 21, 2024 | Case Studies

Within the scope of oil and gas distribution, efficiency is paramount. Traditional methods often led to last-minute orders, uncertain contractual relationships, and inefficient logistics, resulting in lost revenue and decreased customer loyalty. Recognizing these challenges, Submetrika embarked on a mission to revolutionize the industry with TrackGas V5, a cutting-edge solution aimed at digitizing and telemetry of tanks for distributors and their clients.

Challenges Faced by Distributors Before TrackGas V5:

Before the advent of TrackGas V5, distributors grappled with several critical issues:

  1. Urgency in Orders: Distributors often faced last-minute orders to refill tanks, leading to frantic efforts to meet demand. When supplies ran short, clients sought alternative suppliers, resulting in lost revenue and fractured relationships.
  2. Uncertain Contracts: The contractual relationship between distributors and clients was often precarious. Instances of clients seeking supplies from other vendors due to uncertain availability eroded trust and loyalty between parties.
  3. Inefficient Logistics: The lack of visibility into tank levels necessitated frequent and often unnecessary trips for product delivery. This led to increased transportation costs, wasted man-hours, and inefficiencies in route planning.

Distribution Solutions Offered by TrackGas V5:

TrackGas V5 emerged as a game-changer, addressing these challenges comprehensively:

  1. Proactive Tank Management: With TrackGas V5, distributors gained unprecedented control over tank levels through advanced telemetry. Armed with real-time data, distributors could anticipate demand, enabling proactive outreach to clients before they even placed orders. This shift from reactive to proactive engagement not only improved customer service but also strengthened relationships with clients.
  2. Enhanced Contractual Transparency: By monitoring tanks through various Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), distributors ensured adherence to contractual obligations. 

This transparency fostered trust and loyalty between distributors and clients, mitigating the risk of clients seeking alternative suppliers.
  3. Optimized Logistics: TrackGas V5 empowered distributors to optimize route logistics by providing accurate insights into tank levels. By minimizing unnecessary trips and optimizing routes, distributors achieved significant cost savings, with reductions in man-hours and fuel costs ranging from 20% to 25%.

Market Adoption and Success Metrics:

The market reception to TrackGas V5 was overwhelmingly positive, with Submetrika witnessing exponential growth in sales:
