The partnership arose from Tarbell's search for a new system to streamline their day-to-day operations across all aspects of their business, as well as a need to accelerate their daily business functions, according to ADD.

The company will be using ADD eStore for its c-store channel and ADD Energy E360/ADD Energy E3 and Raven for the wholesale fuel silo. Additionally, Tarbell will be using Atlas Reporting for business intelligence and reporting.

"The best part of our experience is the quality and professionalism of the implementation team," said Jason Smith, director of technology services at Tarbell. "We were assigned a solid project manager and accomplished team who got off to an organized start, and they kept us on track all the way to live. They had good knowledge of our POS system, and the project was smooth."

Founded in 1973, ADD Systems provides software solutions to the convenience store, petroleum distribution, and HVAC industries. 

"We are excited to call Tarbell Management Group and the Bear's Den convenience stores our client," said Bruce Bott, president at ADD Systems. "Over the last several months, our combined organizations deployed a lot of technology, from store software to back office software. We're very happy that we’ve worked together to accomplish so much in a short time, and we are looking forward to the opportunity to help them grow their business."
