Explorer Pipeline (Tulsa, OK), a leading preeminent provider of fuel transportation services to the petroleum industry, has selected Ariett ReqNet, plus Mobile Connector, Receiving, Vendor Assignment and RFQ Modules, to automate and optimize requisitioning and receiving for multiple decentralized offices and field personnel across the country.Explorer Pipeline operates a nearly 1,900 mile common carrier pipeline system that transports gasoline, diesel fuel and jet fuel from the Gulf Coast to the Midwest. Explorer is based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and also serves Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, St. Louis and Chicago. Through connections with other product pipelines, Explorer serves more than 70 major population centers in 16 states.
Explorer transports refined products with more than 72 different product specifications for over 60 different shippers. Since the company does not buy or sell petroleum products, it only provides transportation services, transparency into its Requisitioning was imperative for its clients.
After an extensive review process, Explorer selected Ariett ReqNet over other competing solutions, based its overall superior features, functionality and cost value.
ReqNet will allow Explorer to accelerate the Requisition to Purchase Order process by improving operational efficiency, while simultaneously reducing costs. Additionally, ReqNet will provide a single platform to improve decision making and business processes with real-time reporting on multiple business metrics and comprehensive audit trail. This will result in complete visibility of vendor spend across the organization to improve vendor management, as well as provide the transparency their clients require. And by leveraging Ariett Mobile Connector, Explorer personnel will be able to manage the Requisition process from the field as easily and effectively as if they were in the office.
Explorer will also benefit from Ariett’s unparalleled seamless connection to Microsoft Dynamics GP, to provide even greater return from their overall financial technology investment, and provide an even greater level of automation, compliance and time and cost savings.
