The decision is a result of Summit’s need for a system that would improve efficiency of daily processes after the company has grown over the years to include convenience stores and wholesale petroleum distribution.
“ADD had all of the functionality we were looking for, including wholesale billing, c-store accounting, item-level pricebook, consignment posting and report capabilities. We’re also happy with ADD’s reputation for stellar customer support,” said Terri Pare, chief finance officer of Summit.
In addition to ADD eStore and ADD Energy E3, Summit Distributing will implement Atlas Reporting, ADD Systems’ solution for business intelligence and reporting. Atlas provides operational reporting and analytics for the stores with real-time point-of-sale reporting, as well as increased efficiency and visibility into the energy distribution operations.
“Summit Distributing is a growing business. We’re excited to work with them and streamline their operations and increase efficiency,” said John Coyle, vice president of sales for ADD Systems.
Lebanon, N.H.-based Summit Distributing sells gasoline and diesel to dealers and other petroleum distributors throughout New England. Tom Frawley, Summit’s founder, also established Summit stores in 2015 to run multiple c-stores in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
Since 1973, Flanders, N.J.-based ADD Systems has been a provider of software for the petroleum, propane, gasoline and convenience-store industries.
