Fuel-Tech Online Bureau
History of the Fuel-Tech Bureau Service
The bureau service started from the needs of customers over the Christmas
period to keep their systems running while most of the staff were on
holiday. Two years after starting this
temporary service two of the customers asked us to carry on running the system
as they got the best results over this period.
The service slowly grew to the point where extra staff was required to
run all of the customers work, today all new customers go onto the bureau
service as it has proven to be the best way for the Fuel Management System to
be run. This is because fuel management requires constant attention and real
understanding of the factors that affect the system.

Online Portal and Dashboard
The online portal is the website access for our bureau customers to be able to view their data anytime and anywhere. The bureau service will still send out daily, weekly and monthly reports as they have always done but this is an added facility that makes it possible to gain access to your data.
In addition to being to create the same reports the bureau service prepares for the client, Micro-Alert has added a dashboard as well. This dashboard uses more graphical representations of data and can be linked to live data (if the site is capable of supporting live data). This can allow operations, debriefers and managers to have almost immediate access to their fuel data.
