PARIS, France (18 Dec. 2013) –Tokheim, a leading supplier of fuel retail solutions, is proud to announce the launch of a new business unit, dedicated to tank gauges and wetstock management solutions, called Tokheim ProGauge. These innovative and state of the art solutions are based on a new set of Tokheim engineered products including consoles, probes and associated software. The announcement follows the recent acquisition of a leading European wetstock solutions provider, Start Italiana, on the 5th of November 2013.
Kurt Dillen, General Manager of Tokheim Systems and Electronic Business Unit (SEBU), says, “We are delighted to announce the launch of Tokheim ProGauge and expand our existing wetstock management solutions for service stations and commercial fleet sites. We have more than 25 years experience in developing our own wetstock software via Fuel POS as well as supporting the integration of a number of third party tank level gauges with Tokheim’s system. This experience in marketing, installing and maintaining all types of third party level gauge products has helped Tokheim to define a best in class future product roadmap regarding level gauges and controllers.”
Tokheim ProGauge software applications aim to help customers to improve the profitability of their wetstock management and ensure theft or fraud is detected. The new systems also provide accurate measurement of alternative fuels, water, density and temperature. The Tokheim ProGauge products will be capable of smart communication with a range of forecourt controllers or POS/BOS, as well as fully integrating with the Tokheim portfolio of systems solutions. These new wetstock systems are designed to operate in close relationship with the fuel management solutions offered by Fairbanks, a partner company of Tokheim.
Baudouin de la Tour, Tokheim CEO, says, “This is a statement of intent from Tokheim. We are firmly committed to providing a complete solution to clients and we identified that this was a key strategic area that we wished to develop. Clients will not only benefit from a range of new products but also the expertise of our project management, installation and maintenance teams around the world.”
Tokheim ProGauge products are now available directly via Tokheim’s 34 Sales and Service Divisions as well as through the 100+ distributors worldwide.
