Fuel company Glusco completed the transfer of server infrastructure to cloud environment as part of implementation of Microsoft IT business platform. Project includes full automation of Glusco gas station network in Ukraine.
Glusco choosed Microsoft platform as the most reliable and most modern, as well as Dynamics product family, as the most effective in retail management in general and in gas station management in particular. SMART business proudly became Glusco implementation partner in Ukraine.
During this project, it is planned to incorporate all business processes in a single IT system: sales of fuel and related products, management of fuel pumps, monitoring of tank indicators, inventory management, pricing and assortment at gas stations, management of cafe and kitchen, personnel management, working with suppliers and loyalty program, as well as business analysis. Thus, Glusco Ukraine will become the first fully automated network of gas stations in Ukraine, working with a single solution of Microsoft Dynamics.
“This modern IT-solution will allow Glusco to improve overall efficiency of business processes due to the tremendous time savings for data preparation and processing of operational activities,” says Glusco IT-director Denis Tantsura, “which means that we will be able to invest time in business development. It is important that the system is scalable, which will significantly increase the number of operations, connect additional devices and new users, which means that the company will not have technical limitations when expanding the network of gas stations. By the end of the year we plan to transfer the first gas station to LS Retail solution based on Microsoft Dynamics” – he adds.
The project also introduced a system for managing the loyalty program Glusco Club, which was launched on December 15. It is also available for download from AppStore and Google Play Market. Until the end of 2017, the loyalty program will be available at all operating gas stations of Glusco network.
“We are encouraged by the companies that decided to switch from analog to full-scale digital business, and Glusco is a vivid example,” says Kirill Rudnev, SMART business operations director. – Such changes imply the transformation of processes and products using intelligent systems and cloud technologies, which in turn fundamentally affects the interaction with customers and the effectiveness of employees. We are pleased that Glusco chose the solution from the world leaders, because Microsoft has a clear vision and tools to help companies in their digital transformation.”
