Azure IoT integrated with connected IoT smart devices enables you with a centralized, connected experience delivering optimized asset management and an enhanced customer experience.
Azure IoT Edge enables processing normally done at the cloud to be done by the edge device. By moving select workloads to edge devices at the site, you can accelerate response times and enable processing even when you’re not cloud connected.
Drive increased sales revenue
Many locations operate retail, car wash, or other related businesses, and these can be vital for your bottom line. Promote products and services at the dispenser to drive in-store foot traffic and sales, increase customer loyalty, and deliver an overall enjoyable customer experience.
Engaging customers at the fuel dispenser with promotions in a personalized way can be challenging when you’re limited to physical signage. But DFS DX enables you to capture attention with media options that can entertain and entice customers with deals and offers, so they spend more money at your convenience store or car wash. Plus, updating promotions is fast and easy, thanks to DFS DX’s connected solutions cloud-enabled platform.
Keeping your point-of-sale systems current and updated across multiple locations and devices can be time consuming but what used to take days can now be done in minutes. DFS DX streamlines the process—with everything in the cloud, you can update systems across all locations simultaneously, allowing you to save time and ensure a smooth customer checkout.
Maximize site assets and operational efficiency with IoT
From the tank to the payment module, the operational efficiency of your entire retail station has a direct impact on your bottom line. The DFS DX connected solutions platform helps you streamline operations and optimize site assets.

You don’t need to be on site to be
in control. DFS DX solutions can be accessed remotely on a web browser, enabling you to monitor trends, make more informed business decisions, and keep operations running smoothly—no matter where you are.
Monitor from anywhere
Maintaining regulatory and environmental compliance is critical to your bottom line. When issues happen, you need to act fast.

Increased safety and security with DFS DX connected solutions
When it comes to fuel stations, compliance and security are critical.

The solution suite uses Azure Stream Analytics to expedite data creation and alert you to potential issue.
Nine out of ten fuel pump issues aren’t discovered until a customer reports it, which can cost you valuable time, money, and ultimately, customer loyalty.

Making good decisions requires data insights. DFS DX connected solutions deliver actionable insights from the convenience of a centralized, cloud-based dashboard. Remotely track business and resource trends, stay updated on day-to-day activity, and react quickly to unexpected occurrences.
