The authors suggest 4 specific points to work on:

1. Increase Operational Productivity
2. Produce Better Financials
3. Mitigate Risk
4. Build Long-term, Profitable Customer Relationships


Did you know that our LLD can help with your operational productivity and risks mitigation? As the authors suggest in their article, you should consider "productivity of your line service department" and "create a safety-minded culture".

By displaying the volume from a far distance, you can make sure you are no longer in need of a second linemen "watching" the volume next to the tanker, and you reduce the risk of over or under refueling by having a confirmation that you dispensed the exact volume of fuel needed for the flight!

Tekinno Corporation is a Canada-based company offering control and monitoring devices for tanks and storage. Their Eagleview devices are mainly used in the demanding refueling industry. Since 2007, Tekinno products have been used by hundreds of FBOs across North America, from Texas right through to Alaska.

Our main goal is to deploy a smart environment aiming at avoiding or substantially reducing human errors and quality issues, increasing efficiency to process involving high risks, bringing a safer work environment and achieving reliable, continuous, and accurate monitoring.
