By offering this integration, our customers can eliminate runouts and needless deliveries, speed responsiveness and more tightly manage their industrial gas tank fleets.”

David Schaer, Computers Unlimited president, added, “Our customers have been asking us to automate the process of gathering and integrating tank monitoring data to drive cost savings on tank management and deliveries. By integrating DataOnline tank data with the TIMS Bulk Gas Manager module, they will realize significant savings in logistics, processing time and labor costs.”
