Orpak Presents Big Data Analytics at the Tankstation Vakbeurs Event http://www.orpak.com/news/orpak-promotes-fuel-station-automation-solution-for-the-global-petroleum-and-transportation-industry-5/ Thu, 27 Oct 2016 10:55:40 +0000 /?post_type=news&p=3589 October 27, 2016 - Orpak Europe, a subsidiary of Orpak Systems, will showcase ForeVision – Orpak’s business insight and optimization software suite – at the Tankstation Vakbeurs Exhibition. This one-day event, which takes place on November 15th in Expo Houten, Houten, The Netherlands, is targeted towards station owners and holds educational sessions and workshops for its visitors with diverse networking opportunities.

A typical retail station creates thousands of data lines each day, fuel transactions, c-store sales, loyalty activities, inventory changes and such. A medium sized network generates millions of data points each month. Analyzing  this data to create meaningful business decisions is challenging, but can provide an incredible powerful tool which influences the way of thinking and conducting business at fuel stations; using Big Data could literally fuel a petrol station’s revenues.

Orpak’s cloud and analytics solutions for retail will be displayed along with a live demo at Orpak’s booth, located in Hall A. Event participants are invited to attend our presentation “Do I Need ’Big Data‘ for my Station Management?” which will be held at 14:00 by Aryeh Frei, Software Solutions Director at Orpak.

Mr. Frei will present two business cases that address various questions such as: Where does collected Big Data come to our help and where it does not? Why is it needed at all in the modern era of a petrol station? Does it depend on the size of the petrol business? What business advantages and new opportunities can we gain through Big Data systems, and how different is the acquired information from the standard management systems which currently are set up in petrol stations?

A Major Eastern European Fuel Retailer Successfully Implements Orpak’s Innovative Wetstock Management Solution http://www.orpak.com/news/a-major-eastern-european-fuel-retailer-successfully-implements-orpaks-innovative-wetstock-management-solution/ Tue, 14 Jun 2016 06:52:56 +0000 /?post_type=news&p=3408 June 13th, 2016 – Orpak Systems, a leading solution and service provider for retail gas stations and commercial fleets for over 25 years, is proud to announce the successful implementation of its ForeVision Wetstock Management Solution (WSM) at 150 fuel retail locations of a major fuel retailer in Eastern Europe. Orpak's Wetstock Management Solution is an innovative, real-time wetstock control, monitoring, analysis and loss detection solution, and an integral part of Orpak’s marketproven ForeVision BI & Analytics suite.

A well-established oil company has successfully deployed Orpak’s ForeVision WSM solution at its COCO stations in less than 3 months, and has proved its value early on by detecting and preventing fuel losses of various types, providing much tighter control on inventories, and improving loss identification by over 70%. The Company plans to expand the use of Orpak's WSM solution at additional stations in East Europe.

“We see immense global interest in our innovative Wetstock Management Solution, with more than six active projects in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East,” said Aryeh Frei, SW Solutions Director at Orpak, who has led the development and deployment of WSM. “One of the key benefits of our solution is the automatic detection of events, which reduces the need of a human analyst to analyze the data.”

Orpak’s WSM is SaaS based, and connects to any back office systems (BOS) in order to provide networks with a comprehensive wetstock overview, while detecting fuel loss and discrepancies. It collects aggregated data from all sites, analyzes, and automatically detects as well as alerts on fuel losses by tracking fuel stock history. In addition, the solution remotely performs tank calibration, and manages delivery acceptance at every site. This results in significant, network-wide, operational cost savings, and a clear competitive edge.

JSL, One of the Largest Logistics Company in Latin America, Chooses Orpak as its Vendor of Choice http://www.orpak.com/news/orpak-promotes-fuel-station-automation-solution-for-the-global-petroleum-and-transportation-industry-3/ Mon, 13 Jun 2016 06:16:54 +0000 /?post_type=news&p=3407 Orpak’s market-winning ForeHB and ForeFuel solutions to serve JSL fleet customers in Brazil

June 13th, 2016 - Orpak Systems, a leading solution and service provider for retail gas stations and commercial fleets, today announced it has been selected as the premium supplier of fuel and fleet management solutions by JSL, one of the largest logistics company and fleet operator in Brazil. Orpak will manage fuel consumption of fleet operations with plans to extend the services to JSL's sites nationwide.

As Brazil's largest logistics company, the company's fleet related services include supply chain management, outsourcing, fleet and equipment management, as well as passenger and general cargo transportation, including fuel for major 3rd-party fleets, such as the Brazilian police force, city municipalities, transportation companies, car rental, and vehicle leasing.

The JSL-Orpak project has launched at five fuel stations, and two tanker trucks in Rio de Janeiro. The system consists of Orpak’s ForeFuel RFID vehicle identification solution designed to better monitor and manage the amount of fuel consumed by JSL fleets, and the implementation of ForeHB, an end-to-end commercial fuel site management solution at each fueling site.

With Orpak's ForeFuel solution, JSL is able to manage fast refueling with no need for cash, card, coupon payment, or any other fueling authorization. ForeFuel provides tighter control and efficiently reduces losses as it ensures that fuel goes solely to the authorized vehicle whose account should be charged. Removing the nozzle and trying to fuel another vehicle immediately suspends RFID fueling activity.

"JSL selected us after thoroughly evaluating the various solutions in the market, and eventually chose us because of our vast experience in fueling solutions for fleets, and best-in-class products," said Sergio Sborovsky, Vice President of Sales in Iberia and Latin America at Orpak. "We are proud to partner with market-leader JSL, and to expand our solutions and services offering in Brazil. This is a milestone achievement for Orpak as we further our commitment to supporting fleet management companies, helping them effectively achieve cost and resource savings, and increase fleet performance and profitability."

Orpak Selected as Provider of Comprehensive Homebase Fleet Fueling Solution to Major European Airports http://www.orpak.com/news/orpak-promotes-fuel-station-automation-solution-for-the-global-petroleum-and-transportation-industry-2/ Fri, 10 Jun 2016 06:27:51 +0000 /?post_type=news&p=3403 June 10, 2016 – Orpak Systems, a leading solution and service provider for retail gas stations and commercial fleets, has been selected as the premium supplier of fuel and fleet management solutions for more of Europe’s busiest airports. Orpak's solution is already deployed in key hub terminals such as Gatwick, Stansted, London Heathrow, Charles de Gaulle and Orly in Paris, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, and additional leading airports in Northern Europe. Additional European airports will be deploying Orpak's solution in the upcoming months.

These airports have chosen Orpak's innovative technology in their search for a highly reliable solution to improve productivity, and substantially reduce operational costs. The airports are utilizing Orpak's ForeHB homebase station management solution for fixed and mobile station automation, as well as ground equipment management from a centralized headoffice with real-time control. Additionally, Orpak's ForeFuel Automated Vehicle Identification (AVI) fueling solution is widely utilized to provide tight control of fuel usage in many of these airports.

Orpak’s ForeHB solution delivers a comprehensive and flexible end-to-end solution for homebase fuel sites from the forecourt to the cloud. The solution offers fleet managers power and flexibility to manage multiple sites and fleets from one central point, authorize fueling, control fuel distribution, monitor fuel levels, while maximizing fleet efficiency and minimizing fuel expenses.

At Heathrow airport alone we have thousands of ground vehicles fueling in several terminals, introducing excellent control over the airport's ground vehicles. Not only did our fuel expenses drop, saving us a significant amount of money, but we now have excellent control of our vehicles, what they fuel, where, and when. Additionally, our administrative work was significantly reduced. Moreover, Orpak's market leading ForeFuel solution – Automated RFID Vehicle Identification system – provides a comprehensive and secure refueling solution which is perfect for the airport environment.”

Orpak’s Pioneering Automatic Vehicle Identification Solution Continues to Lead the Market http://www.orpak.com/news/orpaks-pioneering-automatic-vehicle-identification-solution-continues-to-lead-the-market/ Thu, 09 Jun 2016 06:35:35 +0000 /?post_type=news&p=3404 June 9th, 2016 – Orpak Systems, a leading solution and service provider for retail gas stations and commercial fleets for more than 25 years, continues to strengthen its market leader position with its 4th generation Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI) solution – ForeFuel. As the leader of this segment, Orpak has defined and dominated the market over the years, and continues to revolutionize with ForeFuel – a comprehensive offering featuring nano design technology. As a result of the Company's innovative technology and expertise, the solution is now being implemented in five additional countries.

According to a recent study conducted by Shell in the UK, there is an alarming increase in fuel related fraud that occurs within fleets. With cashless payments on the rise, and fuel being one of the world’s most valuable commodities, fraud has become fleets' main concern. Further research confirmed that 64% of fleets have been the victim of fuel theft or fuel fraud, yet this figure only relates to those who are aware of the fraud that has taken place in their fleet.

The above significantly strengthens the value of Orpak’s ForeFuel's AVI solution, as all of Orpak’s customers report significant savings in fuel expenses due to the use of ForeFuel. This is true for European countries as well, and even more so in the Commercial Road Transport (CRT) markets where the average savings per vehicle may exceed 100 Euros a month. "We are experiencing a growing demand for the ForeFuel solution suite from all territories, including Europe, and a special take-up with heavy commercial fleets fueling on diesel fueling networks," stated Shraga Katz, Vice President of Sales at Orpak.

The solution powers simple and secure refueling of millions of vehicles worldwide, and now also with a new, compact RFID unit for immediate fueling authorization when the nozzle is inserted into the fuel inlet. ForeFuel provides measurable value to both oil companies and commercial fleets by ensuring that fuel goes solely to the authorized vehicle whose account should be charged, while removing the nozzle and trying to fuel another vehicle immediately suspends the fueling. ForeFuel is suitable for any type of vehicle, such as cars, vans, buses, and trucks. Additionally, fleet managers can utilize the system to control their fleet costs and prevent unnecessary expenses whether fueling occurs at their own sites or in retail fuel stations.

Orpak continues to reinforce its leadership position with its cutting edge technology and exceptional solution for both fuel and fleet management. Its innovative and comprehensive solutions provide complete reliability, tight control of vehicles and ground equipment's wet stock and fuel consumption, while significantly decreasing operational costs and fuel expenses by more than 10%.

ForeFuel incorporates unrivaled global AVI expertise, including over 20 years of technical and commercial know-how, and more than 6.5 million vehicles successfully deployed. The global interest in Orpak's technology continues to expand rapidly with new pilots in more than 5 major fuel retailers in Europe, South America, and Asia.

Orpak will be showcasing its 4th generation of AVI solutions, as well as its other fleet management and retail software solutions at UNITI expo 2016, June 14-16, 2016, Stuttgart. Visit Orpak in Hall 3, Booth 3D52.
