The lasting partnership of the downstream IT specialist Implico Group and the international sales, marketing and support services group DCC has recorded another successful project completion – in Ireland, Implico has integrated a total of 34 new service stations into DCC’s existing software landscape.

Earlier this year, DCC took over the operation of 22 of these stations from Tesco Ireland. The remaining 12 stations came from the DCC-owned fuels brand Great Gas.

Going forward, all 34 stations will be operated under the Certa brand. The project enables DCC to replenish and settle these new fuel stations now quickly and highly efficiently thanks to innovative cloud services.

During the project, Implico mapped all logistics and finance processes for the new service stations in the SAP system used by DCC and in the data communication service iGOS (Implico Global Operation Services).

The latter is a comprehensive cloud portfolio that handles, among others, the data exchange for downstream companies. It collects, validates, and corrects all data from the associated trading partners: terminals, hauliers, fuel station locations and financial institutions.

Then, it passes these data sets on to the DCC headquarters in an ordered, completed and standardised form. One of the biggest advantages of iGOS: It is especially flexible and provides a very high degree of automation.

This reduces manual work while simultaneously increasing the reliability, security, and speed of the data communication. Via SAP SDM (Secondary Distribution Management), the powerful SAP industry solution for downstream companies, DCC controls and automates their complete business processes. Together, the solutions form a future-proof system that will allow for further growth.
