MANCHESTER, UK (June 30, 2015) – Kalibrate, the experts in global fuel and convenience retail, is proud to announce the release of Kalibrate Cloud 2.0, the fully integrated and personalized management platform for all aspects of fuel retail pricing and planning.

New 2.0 features respond to market changes that now challenge fuel and convenience retailers.
“Competition is only becoming more fierce in fuel and convenience retail,” said Bob Stein, president and CEO of Kalibrate. “Where will new performance gains come from? Retailers have to be able to make the right decision at the right time for each and every site. That requires the best prescriptive business analytics and technology to execute faster with more control. Kalibrate Cloud 2.0 makes it all possible.”
Pricing Cloud and Location Cloud enable closer integration of pricing practices and location insights, an emerging area of retailer sophistication. Enhanced rich predictive and prescriptive analytics enable dynamic management of the fuel and convenience retail environment, all powered by the world’s largest verified industry data set.

For a few sites in one country or hundreds of sites around the world, Kalibrate Cloud 2.0 gives analysts, planners and management the most advanced tools to succeed.”
