IS-OIL and suitability for Fuel Distribution and Retail Organisation

Hi Folks,

We have a client who is engaged in the distribution of oil and gas (eg. Forecourt Operations, Home Heating etc). They are considering implementing an SAP ERP system but would like to know if IS-OIL is suitable. In particular, can it be integrated with Point of Sale terminals in the forecourt, and is it suitable for the retail side of operations (ie. Selling additional products from the forecourt - eg groceries etc).

Also, is it possible for an organisation to implement both IS-OIL and IS-RETAIL together? If so, does anyone have any experience or examples of where this was done?

Thanks and regards,

Jules

    Hello Jules,

    IS-OIL has an addon product called Service station retailing which deals with retail business on oil in petro stations. This can be integrated with forecourt systems.Example,the sales flow, the physical stock at service station etc can be sent periodically from point of sale system to R/3.

    Service station retailing deals with the retailing of bulk materials like fuel. A provision was made so that IS-Retail data will flow to the IS-OIL system. Depending on whether it is dealer owned or company owned, it can be further handled.

    But with ERP 6.0 release, you can turn on two industry solution switches i.e both IS-OIL and IS-Retail. This is being tested now.

    Best Regards,

    Soumya
