Finol Oils advises on how to reduce bulk oil stock outages

Finol Oils, which will be exhibiting at the Auto Trade EXPO, at the RDS Dublin on Saturday and Sunday, October 15-16 is advising workshops and haulage operators on how to reduce bulk oil outages.

Garage / haulage operators workshops are very busy places and remembering to check your bulk oil tank levels can very often slip down the to-do list, as getting vehicles turned around for customers and getting various other parts in can take priority.

Most garages have at one stage, or another let their tank run out completely before realising and placing an order with their supplier. Depending on their location this could potentially mean no bulk stock for a few days, leading to a loss in profit as more expensive small packs or 20L drums need to be used in the meantime for any oil requirements.

Tank telemetry is nothing new, but most systems are cumbersome to install, use and are very costly; but for the past two years, Finol Oils has been offering its customers its own affordable tank management system, Nero.

Nero is Finol Oils’ wireless tank management system, which it brought to the market and since its launch, customers who have taken it up have enjoyed the peace of mind on stock levels it brings as well as the extra benefits.

  • Continuous and accurate visibility of your tank allows for better budget and consumption management, while also allowing you to forecast run out dates.
  • Procurement is based on real-time data reducing downtime exponentially.
  • Theft/drain alerts and consumption monitoring ensure that any unusual usage is highlighted immediately.
  • Nero can be self-managed, or Finol managed, guaranteeing that your tank levels are always at your optimum level.

How does Nero work?
A member of Finol’s technical team fits the wireless ultrasonic device to your storage container. This device works on its own network and will sense the level in the tank and report this to Finol’s online system. Each customer can log into their own personalised account on this system to view their tank(s), where you can see current levels, detailed usage history, and you can set up low-level email alerts or place an order with a single click. Nero receives the information immediately, and delivery from Finol is organised, ensuring your tank never runs out!

Features of Nero include:

Accessibility: Nero provides users with liquid level, fill volume, sudden drop alert and consumption data. This information is given in an easy to use, visual design, ensuring that it is extremely simple to understand and use.

Adaptive Design: No matter what device you are using, whether a desktop computer, iPhone or Android system, Nero will adapt directly to your device and provide you with the best experience possible.

Personalised Alerts: Nero can be completely tailored to ensure that you only receive information that is relevant to your business. You can set up personalised alerts to be sent to you and your team at specific usage levels, sudden drop occurrences and low-level alerts to remind you to order in good time so as to not run out. You control the information you want to see.

One-Click Order Top-Up: Nero provides a quick and easy order system for customers to use. Once you feel the need for a top-up, press the button on your dashboard and immediately send a top-up order to the Finol office.

Projected Run Out Dates: Through regular usage, Nero’s Artificial Intelligence will generate projected run out dates for your tanks, ensuring that you can order accordingly and completely remove downtime.

Usage Reports: Nero generates usage reports designed in an extremely simple manner. This information can highlight critical information such as busy periods, average daily usage, trends, and order history. These reports can also be tailored to ensure you find out the information that is relevant to you.
