Press Release: Angus Energy Introduces New Propane GREMLIN® Tank Monitor
Ft Lauderdale, FL. May 22, 2017 – Angus Monitoring Service, LLC announced that it has added a propane version to its popular Gremlin tank monitor lineup. Propane models will work off either Cellular or RF connections, and come at a much lower price point than competitor’s models.
“Our goal is to make monitors so affordable and reliable that marketers will be able to put them on all tanks, or certainly many more tanks, and dramatically drive down delivery costs while increasing customer loyalty,” said Angus CEO Phil Baratz. Baratz said that what makes the Gremlin unique is that the company took the opportunity to learn from the products that preceded it to the marketplace and came up with a solution that includes “the latest technology, at half the cost.” Baratz further explained, “We needed a ’best in class’ unit for one of our solutions. We found a manufacturer in Ireland who had more than 1.5 million units in the field, so the track record and reliability were already there. But then we gave them new, enhanced specifications that make this a much more valuable solution to propane marketers. “
The propane Gremlin, along with its heating oil counterpart, features integration directly into most popular back-office software systems, so there is no added complication to the normal dispatching process. It comes with an extended battery life, and the ability to customize the reporting settings on each individual unit. It can be set up in as little as five minutes.
Gremlin monitors also feature a consumer app that allows customers to see their tank level right on their smartphone, check their usage history, and call, email or go to their company’s website at the tap of a button. “We’ve found the app has tremendous appeal to both automatic and will call accounts, but for very different and interesting reasons, “said Baratz.
