FBO software systems integrator X-1FBO has introduced the latest enhancement to its Cloud Connect platform for fuel truck operations. The use of the company’s Cloud Connect modem provides a new level of fuel automation for users.

Notably, it moves the tanker’s fuel register information into the X-1FBO system and its Single Point fuel management module. The system allows remote control of the TCS meters, allows users to create on-the-spot fuel tickets, and includes a built-in GPS transmitter to permit the tracking of fuel trucks.

For existing X-1 customers, this provides an enhancement to their operations, as well as an incentive for those looking to adopt the management system.

“From the drawing board to the ramp, we envisioned the X-1 Cloud Connect as the nexus of technology, data, and fueling technology,” said company co-founder and CEO Jim Wiley. “Today, seeing it connect devices, trucks, and the cloud with such precision…we’re not just improving fueling operations; we’re transforming how FBOs operate for the future.”

Next week at NBAA-BACE, the company will be demonstrating its X-1 Pilot application, which provides real-time visibility to aircraft operators and service providers. Through the application, users can find FBOs, review their services and fuel prices, and send requests directly to their customer service desks. A complementary wallet feature allows them to save payment methods, view invoices, and pay them.
