BostonBase Inc., a developer of Internet based software designed specifically for the retail petroleum industry, announced the addition of a fuel forecast and dispatch module to their remote fuel manager, which has been providing inventory and environmental compliance services since 2003. The fuel forecasting and dispatching module is a low cost tool designed to help fuel marketers, jobbers and haulers reduce costs and increase profits. Forecasting estimates “when and how much space” will be available in retail tanks, and dispatch management reduces manpower and transportation costs. Remote fuel manger uses frequent inventory updates, detailed historical information, weather and pricing feeds and the ability to individually select the forecasting algorithm for each tank to provide accurate forecasts. A simple yet comprehensive graphical interface intuitively shows the forecast accuracy. A low cost wireless data gathering service for stations with no or infrequent communications is available to provide frequent data updates.
