Big Data | Data driven Fuel Management

Besides personnel costs, fuel costs are the largest and last optimizable cost block for transport companies. To work as profitably as possible, transport companies must analyze and monitor diesel consumption and refueling very carefully. Without monitoring, common thefts could not be detected and the company's liquidity could be jeopardized. Until now, however, a meaningful monitoring was practically impossible, as the necessary data is stored in various independent systems and there are numerous factors influencing consumption that make an evaluation difficult. With the Dieselinspektor software tool, companies can now, for the first time, automatically compare fuel billing data with telematics data from the vehicles and thus check the refueling of the entire fleet with just a few mouse clicks. This allows irregularities to be detected directly and prevented in the future. In addition, with another product called Tankplaner, cost-optimized refueling recommendations can be suggested based on real-time data in order to save money when refueling. Products are currently used by more than 50 customers. Break-even was reached in 2019. Exist Founder Scholarship 2014 received.
