SiteSentinel® iSite System Debuted
The petroleum marketing industry received its first collective glimpse of the future of fuel management at the retail site as OPW Fuel Management Systems debuted its new SiteSentinel® iSite automatic tank gauging system on February 20, 2007, at the Western Petroleum Marketers Convention & Convenience Store Expo in Las Vegas, NV. The iSite system provides users with a revolutionary new solution that is easy to use, install and provides complete inventory, delivery, automatic reconciliation and environmental compliance information for as many as 256 underground storage tanks and/or above ground storage tanks, 1,000 external sensing devices, or a combination of both, through a single console. The user-friendly aspects of the iSite make it the easiest tank gauge to use in the industry. The iSite requires the least amount of training and requires the least amount of menu navigation, with the most frequently accessed information displayed on the “Home” screen cockpit view. EchoViz is pleased to have worked with OPW to design the look and feel, the iconography and the user interaction of the iSite system.
