Free polling from RMIP
Published:  30 April, 2012

The RMI Petrol is to offer a free data polling service to its members, provided by Background2 which created the Flow Web system (see Industry feature page 21).

During the fuel crisis the company had been able to poll existing web platform users to provide daily fuel and stock data, which enabled RMIP to provide the market with reliable data on the panic-buying crisis and subsequently with fuel run-outs/replenishment. It proved invaluable in ensuring the real experience of the petrol retailer was understood by all parties.
