iPhone app from Implico

Software developer Implico has launched a new iPhone and iPad app for oil and gas dealers and their customers. The ‘Refill Me!’ app allows oil and gas dealers to track products, optimise their transport chain and increase delivery quantities, as well as improve customer service.
The app itself is a mobile version of Implico’s Continuous Product Replenishment (CPR) software, which is an add-on to the SAP all-in-one industry Oil & Gas Secondary Distribution (SAP OGSD) system. CPR calculates the consumption of each customer and lets the oil and gas dealers know the best time for the next delivery. The app tells customers how much of each product is left in each tank. The consumption curve shows when the last delivery took place and when the next one is due.
Customers can use the app’s interactive function to send an order directly to the dealer's SAP system. The app shows the current price and arranges for delivery of the order quantity as soon as the customer confirms the order.
Tank truck drivers can be equipped with another Implico mobile application linked to ‘Refill Me!’ Order confirmations can be sent to the tank truck driver and viewed on his/her iPad. The app then automatically calculates the best route from the oil and gas depot to the delivery location, saving fuel and transport costs.
The app works using the Sybase Unwired Platform (SUP) from SAP AG. Implico can even customise ‘Refill Me!’ with the oil and gas dealer's corporate design.
