OCTANE Series – Architected for the dynamic needs of the convenience store market

The OCTANE series offers a preconfigured yet fully customizable suite of energy management system tools designed to drive energy efficiency and operational savings for multisite convenience store operators. We realize margins are important to convenience stores, and reducing your operational spending is a priority.

The ENTOUCH OCTANE series focuses on five critical areas convenience store operators require.

  1. Provide insight into existing equipment
  2. Provide reporting to help predict when issues will occur to repair before failure
  3. Drive reductions in utility spending by optimizing energy, water, and waste management pick-up.
  4. Ensure the store can support the customer’s needs with well-maintained products
  5. Reduce the reliance on local staff to ensure the equipment is functioning as expected

Available in three grades: OCTANE 87, OCTANE 89, and OCTANE 93. Each of the series provides EMS solutions based on the complexity of need. OCTANE 87 introduces primary EMS and operational solutions, while OCTANE 89 and OCTANE 93 expand the solution by covering foodservice, car wash, and trash monitoring.

Since convenience stores run 24 X 7, we stand ready to serve as your ‘always open’ partner. As a result, our convenience store customers enjoy strong results with an average payback of approximately 1.5 years, 150% 5-Year ROI, and more than 6% kWh reduction with our basic OCTANE 87 solution.
