Tankerbase Sapphire is a modern development of its highly successful character-based predecessor – Tankerbase, which became a fuel distribution software market leader in the UK, after 100 systems sold and 40 years of continued refinement.
Sapphire embodies the proven oil and gas software functionality and sound practise of Tankerbase, but adds features and benefits of a solution that has a Windows user interface and is Relational Database driven.
Because it was developed using Progress development tools, its scalability makes Sapphire suitable for even the largest enterprise, and its ease of customisation enables the requirements of individual fuel distributors to be accomodated swiftly.
Progress also provides Sapphire with close integration with 3rd party applications, notably the Microsoft desktop for direct links to Excel, Word & Outlook.
Sapphire links to various accounting suites, such as Sage & Dynamics. However, the integration with Open Accounts is most impressive, resulting in a unified ‘look & feel’, seamless Drill-Down and Report Generation into Excel pivot tables from both suites.
Tankerbase Sapphire has been implemented in 120 fuel distribution locations in the UK & Irish Oil Industries, so it contains clever refinements, including regional specialisations, drawing on the practical experience of hundreds of users, ranging in size from family-owned/run businesses to Multi-nationals.
It is used by both A.Ds for various Majors, as well as Independents, and caters for both single and multiple depot oil and gas distributors.
