i-tank Remote Tank Monitoring
The i-tank Remote Tank Monitoring Solution from i3GCorporation is designed to help optimize the delivery of bulk liquids by monitoring and reporting precise liquid levels on remote storage tanks.
"Our i-tank solution helps businesses refine their bulk liquid deliveries," said Mike Barcum, i3G CEO. "By optimizing bulk deliveries, businesses can cut their delivery costs, reduce the wear-and-tear on fleet delivery vehicles and improve customer service. Our testing has shown that customers can save an average of 30 percent on bulk delivery costs by using the i-tank Remote Tank Monitoring solution.”
Rising fuel costs, increased personnel costs, the need to avoid unnecessary trips and the desire to deliver more precise quantities to remote locations are prompting bulk liquid businesses to look for ways to cut their costs without impacting their operations.
As a durable, self-powered solution, i-tank is designed to operate in remote locations, even where power and telecommunications support is limited. The i-tank solution reports precise level information to a secure, third-party server, so operators can check on remote tank levels around the clock.
