How to save on gas distribution?
The visualization of live gas consumption data – either from tanks or meters – through an instinctive interface that facilitates data management and decision making represents a step forward in the efficient management of gas distribution networks.
Whether we are talking about tanks, bottles or meters, Prognos is launched in the market as a software that integrates gas consumption readings. With the ability to integrate smart meters, pulse reading meters and loggers from different manufacturers, Prognos appears as an agnostic solution, capable of grouping a heterogeneous distribution network in a single interface.
Knowing consumption profiles, planning distribution routes, anticipating supply needs or being aware of the stocks in advance are some of the challenges faced by a gas distributor. Prognos simplifies all these challenges, making processes more efficient since they are based on real information and on history of individual consumption, as well as the network as a whole or grouped in clusters. With simple and intuitive displays and interfaces, the user has all the information on the network in a fast way.
The displayed data becomes a crucial tool to improve the logistical activity of the distribution, reducing costs and resources allocated to this function. Through live information, it is possible to prevent empty tanks, stock-outs and fuel theft. All these features allow the gas distribution companies to provide a service without stock-outs and with quality and robustness. By providing value-added services to the end customer, by using Prognos, these companies are betting on a differentiation factor from the competition.
The user can access data from any location with internet access and integrate the data collected with their own management systems – ERP and CRM, among others. The set of information offered by Prognos is adapted to various types of actors in the distribution process, so they can make decisions with greater efficiency and productivity.
