Otodata, a tank monitoring company based in Montreal, is a new entrant in the U.S. market this year. Otodata’s hardware contains two SIM cards, allowing Otodata to switch its monitoring system from AT&T to other carriers dynamically, says Andre Boulay, Otodata’s president. The design is “not only to make sure the unit has communication capabilities, but to optimize the battery life” to more than ten years, Boulay says.
Otodata announced June 6 that it received a Canadian Propane Association award for innovation in technology for its remote tank-level monitor. The Innovation Award is given for initiatives that contribute to the advancement of the propane industry through product innovation, process/technology, market development or marketing/communications.
On June 22 Otodata will introduce a function on its app, Nee-Vo, that enables fuel marketers to conduct interactive marketing campaigns with customers, using it to market services such as furnace maintenance, for example. Fuel marketers can feature their name and incorporate their colors throughout the app. “Our objective is for fuel marketers to gain visibility to the end users,” Boulay says.
