In our most recent article, we hear from Erin Gillis, the Logistics Coordinator at DMM Energy who shares her feedback and experience with Tattle Systems and the North Star Systems team.
” North Star Systems and DMM Energy teamed up in September 2020 to help provide customers with the best possible system. Tattle Systems benefits us and our customers by providing us with live feed on how much fuel is in their tanks. It has also provided us a great deal of intel which helps ensure we are serving our customers correctly.
The ability for us to monitor fuel tanks is a benefit to our busy customers. Tattle Systems devices send an email or a text to let us know a customer’s tanks have reached a low threshold. The customer doesn’t have to remember to phone us. We can manage the customer’s fuel needs more effectively and it also enables us to coordinate trips out to a certain area much more efficiently because we know how much fuel a customer requires.
For example, we have a customer about 45 minutes outside of Saskatoon where I am located. This past winter, when we were dealing with ice storms, we were able to look at that customer’s tanks. We could decide whether it was worth making a trip out or if the tanks would be fine until the next day when, hopefully, the roads would be better.
Our first Tattle Systems device was installed in a tank at one of our commercial sites. They often needed two fills a week but with Tattle Systems, we can be more efficient by making less trips to fill their tanks. This also keep our drivers out of their site, which is a safety precaution.
North Star Systems and Tattle Systems provide us with a simple and effective way of providing peace of mind to our customers. It allows us to make sure that tanks never run dry because we don’t want our customers without fuel” – Erin Gillis, DMM Energy
