Sprague Operating Resources, Portsmouth, N.H., launched Sprague RT, a mobile app specially designed for users of Sprague’s Real-Time online fuel-buying program.
The Android and iOS app offers users the ability to view all of their active products and terminal locations as well as the real-time ticking price for each, the company says. Users can bid on products or buy at the marketed rate. They can also see trading hours, contact customer care or the pricing desk, and see bid and trading history within the app.
David Daoust, managing director of e-commerce and sales for Sprague, says, “The new Sprague Real-Time app better enables us to provide easier access for our customers to take advantage of market opportunities.”
Sprague introduced the app in October. The iOS app can be found in the iTunes store, and the Android app can be found in the Google Play store.
In 2003, the launch of the Sprague Real-Time online pricing program enabled wholesaler Sprague to provide real-time online pricing to retailers across the Northeast, the company notes. In 2012, Sprague updated its real-time online platform by launching its own proprietary platform to better respond to customer needs. Today, the platform is supported by products available at more than 40 terminals, offers contracts in quantities to fit customer needs, and offers price protection programs in quantities as low as 1,000 gallons over an entire season, with the customer customizing their own month and volume combinations, the company says.
