Over the last 3 years, Slick has successfully innovated the home energy space and has changed the way companies manage their fuel delivery businesses.
Like many other sectors that have failed to innovate and adapt, the fuel industry is faced with the same problem: a new breed of on-demand consumer represents a majority of the fuel gallons (in many markets) that flow through the home heating ecosystem, yet a majority of fuel retailers are still ill-equipped to capture their business.
This new breed of consumers expects a seamless, technology-based experience, yet with the exception of a few larger more established brands, almost all of the retailers lack the proper tools needed to run their business efficiently. Current software solutions offered to retailers are problematic for a few major reasons:
Cost: Choices are limited and often require large upfront payments, multi-month integrations and offer more than what a typical provider needs.
Time/Expertise: Most of the available “off the shelf” software requires significant user time and knowledge. A typical user in this space lacks both and as a result, adoption has been minimal.
Hodge-Podge: While independently solutions do exist, they have yet to be bundled together to the fuel retailer in a cost-effective, user-friendly and feature-rich way.
Have no Customer Relationship Management tools.
