LOGISTICS OPTIMISATION FOR OIL & GAS

TouchStar’s planning, optimising, delivering solution creates the opportunity to collate and present all the relevant data necessary to enhance the efficiency of your bulk tanker operation.

TouchStar lead the world in interfacing expertise to delivery meters, pump blowers and weigh scales, offering automatic validation of loaded and delivered quantities, whatever the product. With 30 years+ experience in developing driver friendly delivery applications we can now deploy to any device, any driver for any job and have confidence the driver will be able to follow the process.

All key stakeholders needs are addressed in the system; from the planner, the service engineer, the health and safety manager, the reconciliation team, the transport manager, the 3rd party fleet operator to the customer. The flexibility offered by the web based portal gives a real business advantage by realising the benefits of making key operational data available to those that need it, in a format and timeframe that they want it.

TouchStar has been working in the Oil and Gas sector for over 30 years and has a unique understanding of mobile computing requirements. This experience has been utilised to equip our Fuel POD system with a range of features to optimise the modern fuel delivery process.
