MODES OF IGAS SYSTEM OPERATION
Taking into account that in different countries there are different particularities of petrol stations operation like:
- the way the customers are serviced (order amd payment is given at pump or to cashier in petrol station office)
- the way how the management of petrol station is done (operation of cashiers in working shifts or without)
- the way how sales and remains of fuel are calculated (using automatic tanks gauge system, pump total counters, inventory reconcilation)
IGAS software is designed to make it possible to flexibly configure and adjust a required way of operation and allow customers to make it work as their local rules demand.
One of the commonly used methods of IGAS operation is when control over fuel dispensers is made by fuel attendants, who service customers. Fuel attendants operate dispensers and receive payment from customers. Fuel attendants control the fuel dispensers as if those worked in a standalone mode (administering starts automatically when the dispensing nozzle is lifted and trigger is pressed). In this mode it is possible to make fuel order preset (in volume or in money amount) from the dispenser preset keyboard. At this momentIGAS software monitors all the transactions being performed and writes all the information to its database. Also cashier at any time can see activity of every fuel dispenser and in case of necessity can stop any of them and receive reports on operation remotely from IGAS software. Receipts can be optionally printed after each dispensing.
Also in this mode third-party applications are able to use IGAS software database as a storage of all transactions and sales performed (locally or remotely) – then this third party software can find total data on all sales and transactions from IGAS database. IGAS can be set to work without any working shifts and automatically start at launching PC so that it was possible to start operation with dispensers:
Manual (monitoring) mode of control over fuel dispensers
Another popular way of IGAS operation is when control over fuel dispensers is made by the cashier, who logs in IGAS under a working shift (using his personal login and password) and is responsible for all sales performed at petrol station. Money are to be directly paid to the cashier, each customer after the sales performed receives a receipt:

Operation of IGAS web-portal for collection of data from IGAS system
Thus using a standard web-browser it is possible to receive reports on operation of IGAS systems at petrol stations and also to monitor their activity online:
IGASCards fuel cards system
