COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Nov. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- PriceAdvantage, a division of Skyline Products, announced today that The Spinx Company has been using PriceAdvantage at its 65 Spinx stores across the Carolinas. PriceAdvantage, a fuel price management solution, has given Spinx the ability to make better fuel pricing decisions given the real-time intelligence provided for each store, such as competitor survey data, volume histories and retail margins.
Spinx stores also utilize PriceAdvantage to feed price changes to the Radiant POS systems, pump and Skyline electronic price signs with the one click technology that is unique to PriceAdvantage.
"We couldn't be happier that PriceAdvantage has replaced our previous fuel pricing solution", says Stewart Spinks, founder and CEO of The Spinx Company. "It is a superior tool in that it gives us the ability to pull historical data easily, manage multiple price changes per day and provide a user-friendly interface at the headquarters and store level."
