  1. Make the most of your energySM Formed in 2008 by John Mansfield and Martin Underwood, Georgia-based Indigo Energy Partners was originally a wholesaler of petroleum products with an emphasis on renewable fuels. As the company expanded, its products and services have grown to include a nationwide fuel distribution network, complete supply chain management, expertise in disaster supply situations, proprietary energy market research and analysis, and hedging strategies for price protection. Indigo also prides itself in the outstanding credentials and experience of its team of fuel industry professionals. Challenges As a wholesaler hiring common carriers to move product, Indigo Energy Partners relied on those carriers to supply bills of ladings (BOLs) in a timely manner so the company could bill its own customers. Indigo continually faced situations where it took the carriers many days, sometimes over a week, to supply it with paperwork for loads that were delivered. PROJECT AT A GLANCE Project Type Fuel terminals transaction automation Location Alpharetta, Georgia Applications DTN Fuel Admin™ CUSTOMER BENEFITS • Easily capture data • Streamline transactions • Faster, more accurate billing • Quickly share information with customers • Improves cash and credit management Fuels Terminal Solutions Indigo Energy Partners, LLC Electronic bills of lading solution helps improve customer credit and service
  2. “DTN Fuel Admin not only improves customer credit management, but also enhances our ability to provide great customer service. We only regret not having this product sooner.” Blake Shirley, CFO, Indigo Energy Partners Solution To solve these issues, Indigo Energy Partners chose DTN Fuel Admin from Schneider Electric. The automated solution helps ensure data quality and speed, as well as streamlines reconciliation processes by supplying automated electronic bills of lading (eBOLs). The eBOLs can be streamed directly into the company’s back office for faster, more accurate customer invoicing. On average, most eBOLs are available within three minutes of load completion. The solution’s unique dashboard view helps users, like Indigo Energy Partners, to manage all supplier mapping codes, quickly and easily — even as seasonal product changes hit the market and new suppliers come on board. In addition, it creates coding consistency for eBOLs from a variety of sources and in different formats — including supplier, terminal, product, and carrier codes. DTN Fuel Admin provides a smart text version of each eBOL that is easy to read, and includes original, standard Schneider Electric, and customer cross-referenced codes. Users can custom cross reference codes and build specific exceptions- based business rules. The Bottom Line “We now receive almost all of our BOLs the same day that the loads were pulled and are able to get our customers billed within our preferred 24 hour window,” explained Blake Shirley, CFO for Indigo Energy Partners. The DTN Fuel Admin module has been a tremendous time saver for its accounting and billing teams. They no longer have to spend hours each day calling carriers, trying to track down BOLs for loads delivered. Instead, they can focus on timely billing of customers, which is a much better use of their time and enhances the company’s cash management function. “DTN Fuel Admin not only improves customer credit management, but it also enhances our ability to provide great customer service. We only regret not having this product sooner,” added Shirley.
