Implementation

Implementation is paramount to any project’s ultimate success.

Implementation is often overlooked when planning an enterprise-wide technology deployment, and is paramount to any project’s ultimate success. Poor implementation can significantly increase costs and negatively impact the return of investment. Fuelogix ensures a successful implementation by following a detailed implementation process that includes:

  • Facility and asset assessment to determine current fueling related capabilities, in-place technologies, and specific asset quantities and configurations.
  • Coordination with client on asset availability to ensure a timely and economic installation of the technology.
  • Installation coordinated and performed by certified AIM 2.4 technicians.
  • Internet based installation database continually updated; including photo documentation of each installation and permits client monitoring of installation progress.
  • Appropriate client personnel at each facility will participate in the installation process to ensure a complete understanding of the technology operation and ensuring future maintenance and trouble-shooting capabilities of the client’s personnel.

Fuelogix focuses on specific installation requirements to ensure the long term performance of the technology. Some of the specific installation requirements include:

  • Review of Fuelogix installation procedures with the client to ensure compliance with client specific requirements.
  • Equipment wiring harness kits are pre-loomed for specific assets and shipped to installation locations with heat-shrunk connections already in place; reducing the amount of wiring work done in the field to connect hardware.
  • Die-cut 3M very high bond adhesive used to secure tank rings to fuel tanks to ensure adhesion within the field environment and when exposed to fuel.
  • Customer service support is provided through a 24 hour support line, internet based training and trouble-shooting videos, laminated installation and trouble-shooting instruction cards, and a network of certified technicians.

Vendor Partnership

Now more than ever, building powerful relationships with vendors has become a critical success factor for corporations.

  • Approved fuel vendors (AFVs) are required, by the client and Fuelogix, to install FMUs on their fuel dispensing equipment that services the client.
  • Fuelogix coordinates directly with AFVs to install, operate and maintain the FMU technology.
  • An AFV database of properly trained and equipped vendors will be maintained and accessible by Fuelogix clients.
