[Fuel] Upside Dashboard: Capacity page


Page Overview

Capacity utilization is the measurement of pumps in operation at any given time. Typically, a fuel station utilizes only a fraction of its available pump capacity on a daily basis, averaging around 25%. This under utilization of resources presents a missed opportunity for enhanced profitability. Explore the Capacity Page to monitor the utilization of your pumps, identify top-performing locations, and observe how Upside transactions contribute to maximizing your available capacity with additional transactions. 

Key metrics on the page: 

  • Open capacity: The gap between transactions a business is currently capturing and what they are able to capture with their existing investments.
  • Maximum Capacity: The highest number of transactions observed in one hour in the past 12 months. 
  • Non-Upside Transactions: Non-Upside transactions occurring compared to the maximum capacity.
  • Upside Transactions: Percent of available capacity being filled by Upside transactions
  • Upside share of transactions: The percent of total transactions during that day or time that are Upside transactions

Together, these metrics tell a story…
