Have you ever looked back at your own business to see how much as changed? I did it against giants like Google and Facebook and the results are brilliant. As powerhouses, you can’t ever imagine them starting with a sketchy logo that looks like it was designed by someone from Gumtree- but they did. We turned three the other day! This prompted me to look back...

We're left feeling extremely proud when we hear how our platform has positively impacted a users business. So proud, in fact, that we invited Fuel Oils into the office to capture what they had to say on camera. Without spoiling the video too much, Bernie Emmerson and John Dickinson joined us for the afternoon to discuss how the OnlineFuels platform helped them save time and...

This isn't so much about old versus new, but a visualisation of gradual fuel industry progression through time. Small, but consistent, innovations that were most likely unnoticeable at the time and now seem dramatically different when placed side by side years later (see images). Compare the way that fuel is bought today to how it was bought 10 years ago, though, and you won’t see much...

It’s teeming with new talent, from individual freelancers...

You’ve probably seen our name around recently (I’m a big fan of emails). We’ve been talking about the release of our new dashboard, new transaction emails and the coming delivered-in feature, but we’ve not really fully addressed our fundamental features on one page and explained what a fuel buying platform is. So here we go. We’re an independent fuel buying platform We’re a completely independent platform, in...

As part of being more informative as a business, perhaps a good place to start is for me to explain what drove me to set up OnlineFuels, what we have done in the past couple of years, and where we see ourselves going over the next 12 months. Why I created OnlineFuels My background had been working for Mabanaft (Importer/ Wholesaler) for 8 years. I enjoyed every...

We're on a mission to improve every day. Whether it's a tiny change or a dramatic increase in functionality- we are forever moving forward. Thanks to your feedback that we have received on our journey online and at the FPS Expo, we have made some considerable changes to our platform and general usability. One huge part of this change was the transactional emails we were sending out....

As another FPS Expo 2018 passes, we reflect on the great news that came out of the largest exhibition of the oil and fuel distribution industry and its suppliers.

Although we were slightly...
