Melbourne, Australia, 23 May 2017 – Leighton O’Brien today announced a new Licensed Software Partner agreement with ACE Consulting and Engineering Inc.
ACE becomes Leighton O’Brien’s Licensed Software Partner for its leading Wetstock Live solution, a comprehensive real-time wetstock monitoring, analytics and reporting platform which monitors transactional data feeds from all brands of dispensing pumps and ATGs as well as delivery information.
“We’re pleased to announce another Licensed Software Partnership in the Eastern European region, which is a key of our global growth strategy to operate through valued third parties,” said Reed Leighton, CEO of Leighton O’Brien.
“Ace Consulting is an ideal partner for our wetstock management platform. We were very impressed with their domain knowledge of the wetstock space and understanding how our solution meets key customer drivers including accurate leak detection, compliance monitoring and improved operational outcomes.”
Dr. Cem Avci, Technical Consultant at ACE, said: “Leighton O’Brien has demonstrated superior capability in leak detection and fuel loss accuracy. It’s ATG calibration is second to none, able to detect operational issues like pump outs and sticky probes.
“Terminal deliveries can also be validated to 0.3%, significantly reducing the risk of a missed leak, meter drift and other losses like dross drops.
“Leighton O’Brien’s independence, vendor agnostic technology and listing as one of few certified vendors by the NWGLDE were other key advantages.
“The value of an independent, third party certification is that Leighton O’Brien can quantitively detect loss of 0.189 liters per hour with 99.6% accuracy, giving customers confidence in its ability to report true loss.
“With non-certified reporting systems, customers usually get simple variance reports with ‘potential’ issues. High false alarm rates result in the customer either burning cash on maintenance chasing false alarms or, over time, ignoring the variances, leading to complacence regarding fuel losses and overspending on their operational costs,” Dr. Avci said.
Mr Leighton said both companies were progressing significant market development opportunities.
