Flogas: implementing technology in the energy sector
Tim Eaton, Head of Logistics and Supply Chain, discusses the importance of procurement and the influence technology has had on operations.
As a leading energy provider in the UK, Flogas boasts an extensive and diverse range of products and services such as liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) supply for homes, businesses and vehicles as well as liquefied natural gas (LNG). Considered a market leader in propane enrichment for biomethane, Flogas provides its customers with solutions for an array of situations from heating and cooking to fueling manufacturing processes.
With technology having an ever-increasing impact on all companies’ digital transformation journeys, Eaton points to the importance of leveraging Flogas’ extensive data correctly. “We have a lot of data and possess vast amounts of information about our exact demand portfolio. We have access to lots of information that can really shape not just how we satisfy demand but also how we’re able to target new business. We're at a point now that a customer order can be raised automatically by us based on their consumption profile to enable the customer to be kept within product. That process is now almost completely digital from the order generation through to invoice.”
