Value Creed Streamlines Rack Business Operations for a Leading Fuel Supplier

Performance Challenge

A leading fuel supplier in North America faced operational challenges in their rack business operations across all business functions. With 1,000’s of daily truckloads across multiple terminals, matching the associated BOL’s to the relevant rack deal was a very time-consuming process.

With several different applicable business scenarios and the associated rules that apply in matching the BOL’s to the rack deal automatically, RightAngle (the clients system of record for their rack business) was unable to effectively match 20% of their BOLs which led to discrepancies in data capture increasing financial risk and causing invoice payment delays. The client user team then had to spend time manually to associate the BOL’s to the relevant rack deal to enable the downstream business functions.

Reduced manual errors by up to 80% on implementing the custom automatcher rule within RightAngle.

Increased Efficiency & Productivity

Key Takeaways

To optimize the client’s rack business within RightAngle, our recommendation was to customize the BOL to rack deal matching logic called “Automatcher” within RightAngle. The customization incorporated all the business scenarios resulting in streamlined rack business operations, including managing trading activities, tracking positions, billing customers, and mitigating risks. 

Also, the recommended solution included building custom reports and interfaces that would bring the overall inventory positions together on a near real-time basis and thereby help the middle office manage and monitor risk exposures effectively. This reduced manual efforts and errors in reconciliation.
