Tarbell Management Group, a convenience retailer doing business as Bear's Den, has partnered with ADD Systems as its software provider for its convenience store and wholesale fuel operations.

Using ADD eStore for its convenience stores and ADD Energy E360 and E3 for the wholesale-fuel operations, the partnership is expected to accelerate Tarbell's daily business operations.

“Specifically, the time it takes to process an invoice, close a day and keep track of inventory are key strengths of this platform," said Jason Smith, director of technology services at Tarbell Management Group. "Overall, we experienced a much more streamlined and efficient system that validated our research and directly led to our selection and subsequent implementation of ADD Energy for our Petroleum business, which has taken many hours of manual processing for our operation in the past.”

Bruce Bott, president at ADD Systems, said Tarbell has already accomplished a lot in the short time since incorporating the ADD platforms.

"Over the last several months, our combined organizations deployed a lot of technology, from store software to back-office software," he said. "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.”

The Tarbell Management Group is a Mohawk, family-owned business based in Akwesasne, New York, started in 1953 with a two-pump fuel station and gift shop on the Saint Regis Mohawk Reservation in northern New York. Their business has transformed over the generations into a multifaceted company comprised of three divisions: tobacco, petroleum and retail services.

Since 1973, ADD Systems has been a leading provider of software for the convenience store, petroleum distribution and HVAC industries.
