Smart Tank is an « as a service » wet stock solution. Launched in 2018, it uses a pressure sensor to measure and the IoT (Internet of Things) technology to remotely view and manage tanks’ stock level via a 24/7 portal: a cost-effective solution supported by sophisticated devices and specific communication networks.
All bulk products are eligible to Smart Tank. This implies that our solution is compatible with liquid products (fuel, lubricants…), as well as gaseous products (LPG). Smart Tank is also extensible to tanks that collect wasted oils.
Thanks to a pressure sensor, we can achieve several level measurements of your tanks every day. The data are transmitted via either the IoT network (Sigfox) or the GSM network. An online portal is then at your disposal to visualize the treated data. The Smart Tank solution can therefore alert you when your tank level is bellow (or exceeds) a certain threshold you have defined. This contributes to an early detection of the tanks which need to be filled (or emptied) in the (near) future, to a better planning of the deliveries and to other several advantages.
