Eni Deutschland to rely on SIQMA solutions from Scheidt & Bachmann in the future
The international trade fair UNITI expo took place in Stuttgart from 15 to 17 May. On the evening of the second day of the fair Scheidt & Bachmann hosted its Scheidt & Bachmann NIGHT. Particularly interesting was a short interview between Jörg M. Heilingbrunner, Managing Director, Fuel retail solutions, Scheidt & Bachmann GmbH and Marc Dusel, Head of Commercial, Eni Deutschland (Germany).
The guests learned how Eni Deutschland evaluates the topic of digitization and what effects it has on the day-to-day business at the service stations.
Digitisation today has a major influence on the fuel retail business. Eni Deutschland recognised this at an early stage and is adapting its systems to changing requirements. Mobile solutions allow greater flexibility on site and make daily work easier for operators.
Eni Deutschland has decided to completely rely on the SIQMA solutions from Scheidt & Bachmann for its station network. After a specification and setup phase in 2017, the systems are scheduled for rollout this year. This will provide Eni Deutschland with a future-oriented system environment that is already prepared during the rollout in order to be expanded later by further SIQMA solutions.
A novelty that will be implemented is the Mobile POS on iPad basis, which can be used to sell services directly at the car wash.
SIQMA BOS is designed to achieve greater flexibility. This gives Eni Deutschland a 100% hosted solution, which Scheidt & Bachmann provides in its own data centre and enables access via BOS clients to so-called "Bring your own device" laptops. This means daily tasks can now be carried out extremely flexibly via Internet access without being on site.
Central management is also simplified by modern cloud solutions. Promotions are managed centrally for all connected petrol stations with SIQMA Cloud HOS. In this way, Eni Deutschland can plan the sales promotions important for the shop business centrally and deploy them at the service stations.
