After contemplating a change in technology partners, Reed Oil Co. has chosen to stay with ADD Systems.
Reed Oil Co. Inc. has selected Advanced Digital Data Inc. (ADD Systems) as the company’s technology partner for the future.
New Castle, Pa.-based Reed Oil Co. currently utilizes ADD Systems software across multiple business units including heating oil, propane, lubricants, wholesale, company operated c-stores and gas station dealer network.
Reed Oil Co. has operations in western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio, and a service area that covers Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. Using the ADD Systems cloud solution, the multi-month implementation consisted of the latest ADD Energy E3 software, followed by ADD eStore with Atlas Business Intelligence for their ten ‘Last Minit Mart’ convenience stores.
“We’ve been an ADD Systems client since 1987. Earlier this past year we wondered if it was time for a change,” said Joe Sheehan of Reed Oil Co.
“We invited numerous companies in to discuss our needs and to present their solutions; none of the other vendors took the approach that ADD Systems did,” added Jason McFerren, system analyst for Reed Oil Co. “ADD Systems came on-site multiple times and reviewed every aspect of our business with many members of our staff. Throughout that process we learned that there was so much more to the ADD Systems offerings that we could take advantage of. We are really excited to kick off 2016 with the latest ADD Systems software running in our home office and stores.”
“Moving all our software off our servers and on to the cloud relieved us from having to monitor a piece of equipment and handle backups on a daily basis. This decision provided us more time to dedicate to other aspects of our business.”
“Migrating all of our business aspects to ADD Systems allowed us to keep all of our management software in one location, under one vendor, and making the software support aspect of the software something we could now easily manage.”
“Reed Oil Company elected to migrate all of their in house servers to the ADD Systems cloud offering and utilized nearly our entire suite of products,” said Bruce C. Bott, president of ADD Systems. “They are a diversified company that has multiple business units; that’s where a client can really see how wide and deep our solutions are.” Bruce went on to say, “We’ve been fortunate to have so many long term clients like Reed Oil Company to partner with. Seeing a client of nearly 30 years elect to invest in our latest software over the competition shows that we are investing research and development dollars in the right areas and that we are filling voids that the competition cannot.”
