Connecting Mobile Technologies

An Innovative Game Changer

When the founders of Fuel Cloud saw a market need, they partnered with Forix to revolutionize an outdated industry. We connected their proprietary technology with mobile devices to develop an affordable real time fuel inventory tracking system that communicated intelligently with fuel pump stations.

The Challenge

Before Fuel Cloud was launched, fuel tracking technology was incredibly expensive, time consuming and lacked real actionable data about where fuel costs were going. A wide variety of companies, and even municipalities, needed an affordable real time fuel inventory tracking system that communicated intelligently with fuel pump stations.

Approach

The founders of Fuel Cloud saw an opportunity to leverage mobile technology to fill a real market need and establish a competitive advantage in a historically entrenched market. Forix developed and connected proprietary technology to bring this new approach to fuel pump management and reporting to reality. The Fuel Cloud system consists of 3 simple components:
    1. Utilizing wireless and bluetooth technology, FuelCloud’s Patent Pending* modular hardware is designed to install in minutes and work with almost any kind of tank and pump system.
 
    1. The FuelCloud App works with any iOS or Android cellphone and/or tablet to authorize transactions and collect fuel usage and vehicle data directly from drivers.
 
  1. The FuelCloud Interface has been created to give both accounting and operations the tools they need in one seamless package.
