Guardian Connect, the industry’s first and leading remote monitoring and service delivery platform for fuel systems at convenience stores, has introduced their IoT real-time dashboard and mobile platforms. The new dashboard provides immediate alerts when connected devices fail and their 24/7/365 support center staff take action to remotely diagnose and repair issues before customers or store personnel are even aware of a problem. Traditionally the industry has relied upon customer complaints or infrequent store walks by managers to discover issues which may take several days to find. With Guardian Connect, when a card reader goes down, our support center can often resolve the problem in less than 10 minutes from when the issue occurred. If on-site support is required, our customized platform can either automatically initiate an informed dispatch to the nearest Guardian Fueling Technologies’ technician with a part or communicate that same informed dispatch to your service management team or service management software.
“Our Guardian Connect dashboard and mobile platforms have revolutionized the speed of issue discovery and resolution with service KPI’s not possible in our industry before connectivity. We don’t measure response time in days anymore; we measure it in minutes. Our team actively monitors and manages alerts converting significant amounts of data to immediate actions and better service outcomes. These improvements in service delivery also dramatically improve system uptime, reduce maintenance costs and improve the fuel buyers experience at the c-store” notes Scott Jones, Senior Vice President of Guardian Connect.
The new mobile platform that is available to all subscribers of the Guardian Connect service puts the power of connectivity into the palm of your hand. Now, busy store owners, managers and company service technicians can act upon issues when they are in the field rather than wait for old and slow-moving service failure information to find its way to the home office and then await dispatch internally or externally, which could take many days. “Our team and software developers have invested thousands of hours and over 3 years to develop the Guardian Connect platform” states Joey Batchelor, CEO of Guardian Fueling Technologies. “We believe in connectivity and its positive impact on service delivery for our customers. We are, at our core, a service-first provider to our industry, and we see our remote monitoring and service delivery platform as a critical tool for dynamic and competitive marketers going forward”.
The Guardian Connect dashboard and mobile applications for Apple and Android are available now for those that are interested in improving the speed of service at their business.
