Compliance and Asset Management
Compliance and Asset Management
Knowledge is Power — Minimize Asset Downtime and Maintain Compliance
Minimizing downtime and maintaining compliance of key assets is vital to driving the most profit from your retail or fleet fuel sites, including your convenience stores and other revenue generating assets onsite. Without proper continuous compliance and asset management, fuel site operators and owners can be impacted by:
Mounting maintenance costs
Unexpected and unplanned “out of contract” service costs
Fines due to non-compliance of local regulations
Warranty cost recovery
Unsuccessful accident claims
The good news is that there are tools and best practices available to help optimize your compliance and asset management. The better news is that these solutions do not have to be expensive, large-scale-deployment management systems. Having a built-for-purpose, common, centralized asset database and document library, coupled with a task management tool that provides centralized visibility for all asset related issues, provides you with essential information and insights for minimized compliance risk and asset optimization. That is why Dover Fueling Solutions (DFS) partnered with Techniche to bring you DFS Compliance Manager and DFS Asset Manager. These solutions help reduce your labor costs, reduce environmental risk and cost, improve ROI for all your assets, enables measuring and benchmarking contractor performance to improve efficiency and productivity, and measures performance to ensure KPI’s for your business are exceeded.
Stay on top of your compliance legal obligations
One place to store all compliance documents, reminders of approaching compliance deadlines, identification of missing documents from the library, tracking and reducing annual compliance costs.
Increase operational efficiency
State-of-the-art work order management and scheduling tools allow you to assign tasks, deploy contractors and technicians, track task progression to minimize downtime and on-time task completion, and monitor performance by site, asset or contractor-by region or group.

How it works
Fuel site and store owners and operators have a common need for a centralized asset database and document library coupled with a task management tool that provides central visibility of all asset related issues, especially maintenance and compliance related expenses.
Various tools that provide solutions to these requirements exist, but they differ in their functional focus, depending on which markets they operate in. They are also designed for the enterprise space so are suited for large organizations only.
DFS and Techniche worked together to develop a solution based on Techniche’s Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS), the only CMMS provider that specializes in the retail fuel/c-store sector. Combined with DFS’ modular approach to compliance and asset management, we provide a solution that fits the small and medium size fuel retailers as well larger retailers.
