Implementing solution across California retail network

AUBURN, Calif. -- Flyers Energy LLC has chosen the hosted version of PriceAdvantage, a fuel price management solution, for its Flyers-branded retail locations in California to manage its fuel pricing process, said PriceAdvantage, a division of Skyline Products.

"PriceAdvantage allows us to automate our fuel pricing process while aligning our pricing strategy and improving communications across our network of sites," said Tom DiMercurio, director of accounting at Flyers Energy. "Our goal is to leverage technology to reduce operating expenses and to provide a means of tracking the implementation of price changes through the whole process. PriceAdvantage is allowing us to accomplish both of these objectives."

Chip Stadjuhar, CEO of Skyline Products, said, "Retailers are faced with many challenges in managing fuel price changes including an inability to communicate or confirm price changes effectively and quickly between headquarters and the stores. So we are thrilled that Flyers Energy has chosen PriceAdvantage to manage their fuel pricing process as it eliminates execution delays with one click fuel price changes."
