Forecourt Trader - 30 years at the heart of the fuel retailing community

DFS agrees strategic partnership with Microsoft

John Wood ·

Dover Fueling Solutions (DFS) has agreed a strategic partnership with Microsoft to bring new cloud and IoT (Internet of Things) solutions to market.

Microsoft Azure is a set of cloud services that let organisations build, test, deploy, secure and manage applications, services and solutions.

Through the alliance, Microsoft and DFS will collaborate to develop, deploy, promote and support DFS Azure-based solutions including the Wayne iSense Remote Monitoring and management solution. 

The iSense remote solution provides real-time updates of fuel dispenser and other support equipment at a retail fueling forecourt. With iSense remote monitoring, a station owner can stay on top of pricing, maintenance issues, flow rates, and much more from virtually anywhere.

As an Azure IoT cloud-based solution, it also integrates with other systems so customers can boost security and scale as needed.

David Crouse, DFS president commented: “We are pleased to partner with Microsoft and to utilise Azure to power IoT solutions. This new alliance will advance DFS proficiency to drive technology, innovation and speed for our retail customers throughout the world.”

Michael Kuptz, general manager, America’s IoT Experience, Microsoft, said: “Microsoft is pleased to partner with DFS, a strategic provider of technology for convenience retailing, to deliver new Azure-based IoT solutions for fuel dispensers.

“New Azure based Cloud to edge IoT solutions from DFS will help fuel retailers and convenience store operators save time and money, while providing consistent and secure experiences for customers.”
