Alien Architecture

Alien software runs autonomously and does not require an internet connection in order to function. Instead, data is transferred when a connection becomes available

Fuel Management

Alien's Fuel Point of Sale (POS) Services is developed from the existing Alien System infrastructure, which already had the capacity for running a range of industry processes and the procedures required to run a business.

The majority of other fuel systems available on the market are developed the other way around, meaning the basic logistic for running a business are thrown in at the end as an afterthought, rather than being a focal point of the process.

Pump Controllers

Alien has developed its own Pump Controllers for suppliers such as Dresser Wayne. Prowalco, Gilbarco and Tokheim, whilst the controllers for other brands such as Wayne, Hong Yang and Star are in progress.

Other models of pump controllers can be managed by integrating them with Enabler or Postec pump controllers. Of these two options, Enabler is the preferred choice, because of Postec’s instability.

Tank Gauging

Tank gauging couldn’t be any easier because Alien has developed and integrated their own probes, meaning that its costs a fraction of what the competition would charge.
