SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Tooley Oil Co. is integrating LottoShield's lottery management system across its network of 18 convenience stores in northern California.

The adoption of LottoShield is projected to result in considerable cost savings for the company through reductions in labor hours, increased operational efficiencies and a marked decrease in theft.

"It gives me peace of mind knowing I can look at LottoShield reports every single day. I feel like my stores do not have to do near the work we used to do. Furthermore, since we have implemented LottoShield, we noticed a tremendous reduction in shortages," said David Tooley, vice president and co-owner of Tooley Oil Co., a family-owned business headquartered in Sacramento.

San Ramon-based LottoShield is a lottery management platform that helps convenience stores secure and automate their lottery category. It assists with inventory reconciliation, theft detection and invoice automation, enabling retailers to focus on maximizing revenue and customer engagement. It is the first and only fully automated lottery management system that integrates directly with state lotteries, the company stated.

"[LottoShield eliminates] the manual and guesswork from lottery management and automates it," said Mehdi Mahmoodi, chief operating officer and co-founder of LottoShield. "We are pleased that Tooley Oil Co. chose LottoShield to streamline lottery operations."

Tooley Oil is among a growing number of convenience retailers adopting LottoShield's lottery management system. H&S Energy Products LLC recently integrated LottoShield across its convenience store network following a successful pilot. 

The move underscores H&S Energy's aggressive technology adoption strategy and aligns with the company's ambitious expansion plans to double its store count, the chain stated. The adoption of LottoShield is projected to result in cost savings of more than $1 million a year for H&S Energy, as Convenience Store News previously reported.

"At last, we've found an amazing solution for Scratchers loss prevention. With this live control and tracking tool, our scratchers' inventory is secure from theft or loss. This is truly a game-changer for our business," H&S Energy Products Director of Operational Systems Fidaa Mohrez said at the time of the announcement.
