What is CODAS?
Fully integrated end to end ERP software for Oil and LPG distributors
CODAS is a suite of computer software designed to meet the full range of specialist requirements for Oil and LPG distributors, from prospecting for business, through customer & sales activities, fuelcard management, scheduling & routing, purchasing and stock control, to a full financial suite supported by a variety of mechanisms for the provision of management information. CODAS is fully integrated; data need only be entered once to be available for all subsequent processing, and financial information can be traced back to source transactions with drill-down facilities and integral analytical tools.
CODAS-OTC On Truck Computing with GeoMessaging
CODAS-OTC provides significant vehicle utilisation benefits and dramatically reduces administrative overheads inherent in manual, paper-based systems; adoption of CODAS-OTC solutions continues to increase as more and more fuel distributors, of all sizes, realise the competitive advantages they bring.
CODAS-OTC has a unique real-time interface to the Touchstar Fuelstar system.
Over 1400 vehicles in 17 different Oil and LPG distributors are using CODAS–OTC as part of fleet operations every single day. The capabilities of the combined software result in the following operational benefits;
Vastly improved operational agility: Selecting the ‘real-time’ CODAS-Touchstar interface provides office-based users with up-to-the-minute, entire fleet visibility; knowing drivers’ progress around their routes and the quantities of product left-on-board allows users to make rapid and accurate time-critical decisions
Enhanced customer experience: Adding tickets to, and removing tickets from, loads digitally removes any worry about the quality and accuracy of paperwork and – where delivery tickets are priced – the need to send separate invoices is eliminated
Depot-produced paperwork becomes a thing of the past: remote vehicle operation from unmanned locations becomes much easier
Load reconciliation builds up in real time: loaded and delivered quantities are automatically recorded from the data returned by the OTC system, massively reducing administrative overheads
Digital Proof of delivery: High-quality PDF documents are automatically imported into, and stored within, the CODAS back-end
In-built functionality to advise customers of their delivery status is taken one stage further. Configurable GeoFence distances allow the system to notify the next customer on the route that their delivery will be arriving shortly, eliminating uncertainty, improving the buying experience and matching technology that has become common in the broader logistics industry.
