Facing fierce competition in the market and low margins, service station operators are forced to utilize innovative approaches. Opportunities are offered by digital concepts such as cloud solutions.
This fact was realized by DCC when it took over ExxonMobil’s French retail station network. The Irish company had only a very small window during which to ensure operation and supply of 400 service stations – without a team and an existing IT infrastructure.
DCC wasted no time moving operation of its new retail station network to the cloud. It now leverages highly flexible downstream cloud services for its entire order-to-cash process including automated forecasting. And it does so with minimum capital expenditure.
