Harvest Energy selects Urgent FM platform to underpin UK service station maintenance

Techniche has announced that Harvest Energy has selected its Urgent facilities and asset management platform, to support the company’s UK maintenance operation across almost 90 company owned service stations.
Harvest Energy wanted to increase the visibility and control of all maintenance activity within its network, in order to improve operational efficiency and reduce costs. The Urgent platform will automate repair workflows, offer real-time reporting and enable Harvest Energy to respond to all maintenance requests as quickly as possible. The new system is expected to go live by the end of 2019.
“Urgent’s FM software is the acknowledged go-to-product for the major petrol retail sector, including BP and Shell, so we know we are in good company by choosing this solution,” explained Ian Woodcock, Retail Director, Harvest Energy. “Joining this global fuel retail community gives us tremendous piece of mind. The analytics will help us understand more clearly what is happening across all maintenance activity and this data can be used to identify best practice, improve processes and reduce operating costs. As we continue to grow our business, we are confident that this system will bring significant advantages and benefits to support our requirements.”
The contract also includes Urgent professional services consultancy to configure the new system and provide training. Harvest Energy will also benefit from ongoing, round-the-clock product support.
Paul Djuric, head of Techniche EMEA commented: “Harvest Energy is a significant player in the UK mid-market petrol retail sector and we are pleased to welcome the organisation to our expanding global user community. Our platform is highly suited to Harvest Energy’s complex multi-site requirements and we look forward to working with them in order to drive maximum benefit from the system.”


Intratone Appoints New UK Country Manager To Lead The Market

Intratone, one of Europe’s largest access control specialists, has appointed Victor D’Allancé as its new UK Country Manager to spearhead the company’s continued growth with the aim of becoming a market leader within four years.
Previously Victor headed up the UK subsidiary of Devialet, a technology startup manufacturing high-end speakers, for three years. Before that, he spent four years in the investment banking division of BNP Paribas in Moscow and London.
Victor has been instrumental in setting up the UK office in Chiswick, which will be officially opened during a launch party on 17th October. He has also been recruiting for the sales, finance and marketing teams to ensure the UK subsidiary is fully functioning.
“We have huge ambitions for the UK market – we want to be a market leader within four years as the company is in France,” he says. “Now that the team is nearly complete we are building an exclusive network of partner installers and distributors throughout the UK.”
Cogelec, the parent company in France was established 20 years ago and is now market leader in the country. Following its IPO on the Euronext in July 2018 and the launch of the UK, German and Dutch subsidiaries, the group aims at becoming a market leader across the whole of Europe.
“Some 95% of intercoms in the UK are wired systems which are expensive to install and maintain. Our GSM-based intercoms are between five to ten times cheaper than our competitors,” Victor adds.
“Our approach is an innovation that some are not aware of yet. The market has responded very well to it so far. We look forward to a brilliant future in a fascinating market – we are in the UK for the long-term.”
