Retif Oil and Fuel Selects PDI's Software Solution
HARVEY, La. — Retif Oil and Fuel has selected PDI as its enterprise resource planning (ERP) software provider.
Retif licensed multiple products from PDI, including its wholesale petroleum software suite, warehouse inventory module, and self-service customer portal. Software implementation has already begun, and the project is scheduled to be completed later this year.
The company plans to use PDI's enterprise solution to increase operational transparency, optimize inventory management and ensure customer satisfaction from order generation to delivery.
"As our business has grown, we've accumulated a multitude of proprietary and off-the-shelf systems," said Ryan Retif, vice president of Retif Oil and Fuel. "We were looking for a solution provider that could help us consolidate and streamline our operations as we continue to expand. It was particularly important to us to eliminate manual processes around data gathering and reconciliation. PDI's in-depth knowledge of the petroleum marketing business and reputation for delivering robust, easy-to-implement solutions made them the natural choice."
Retif is one of more than 250 companies using PDI's wholesale petroleum software solution, which also includes card processing and tax reporting modules. In September, PDI expanded that product offering with its acquisition of Titusville, Fla.-based fuel supply chain and logistics company Intellifuel, as CSNews Online previously reported.
Retif was a longtime Intellifuel customer prior to our acquisition late last year," said Bo Harvey, senior vice president of North American operations for PDI. "Their decision to incorporate more of our solution into their business is not only exciting, but it demonstrates their faith in our commitment to building on that relationship and delivering products they need to grow their business."
Temple, Texas-based PDI provides enterprise-class software solutions to the convenience retail and wholesale petroleum industries.
Based in Harvey, the family-owned Retif was founded in 1965 and is a leading distributor of petroleum products that services customers in the southeastern United States.
