Herndon, Virginia, UNITED STATES

HERNDON, Va., Aug. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SkyBitz, a leader in industrial IoT telematics solutions, announces the launch of SmartTank Dispatch, a software-as-a-service platform for petroleum and chemical distributors that uniquely blends real-time telemetry data with order management, delivery route sequencing and back-office automation in a single platform.

The release of SmartTank Dispatch comes during a period of accelerated growth for SkyBitz in the Remote Tank Monitoring market. A first-of-its kind combined solution, and provided exclusively by SkyBitz, the platform utilizes real-time telemetry data from SkyBitz SmartTank monitoring sensors and inventory forecasting algorithms to automatically generate orders and initiate optimal delivery route plans.

By combining real-time tank level inventory visibility with comprehensive planning and dispatching, SkyBitz has developed a powerful automation platform that eliminates errors and unnecessary stops for distributors. The platform enables distributors to manage customer will-call orders and keep-full arrangements with higher levels of productivity and profitability by maximizing route density.

“Current industry averages run around 40% delivery efficiency for distributor networks with unmonitored or un-forecasted tanks. Customers who deploy the SkyBitz SmartTank Dispatch solution are able to comfortably achieve 75% delivery efficiency without the risk of runouts and emergency deliveries,” said Anton Albrand, Division Vice President, SkyBitz. “The combination of SmartTank monitoring and SmartTank Dispatch is a big differentiator in the market – a ‘one-two punch’ in terms creating rapid value for our customers.”

As a turnkey solution, SmartTank Dispatch can be deployed quickly at scale to decrease labor costs and drive workflow automation in distributors’ service networks. The onboarding process for distributors is seamless. A simple step-by-step process can be completed through integration with back-office systems to import and synchronize required information.

Optimized delivery orders from SmartTank Dispatch can be printed or sent to assigned drivers electronically via a mobile dispatch application, which also captures critical arrival, departure and related delivery updates at each stop.
