Pinpoint Tank Requirements
With SmartTank, monitor exactly where tanks are, and which need to be serviced is just a click away. Gain 24/7 visibility via website or mobile app to tank data through our analytics portal. Level, usage history, details and trends, locating, logging, reports, tools – it’s all at your fingertips.
Third-Party Data in One Portal
SkyBitz provides all tank data, regardless of tank monitor hardware, on a single portal. Thanks to our unique Proxy Tanks feature, you can still use another system such as SCADA or UST (Underground Storage Tanks) and view all of the data in one portal.
Easy Alarms & Notification Setup
Create search filters to respond to alarms or identify potential issues before they happen. Set up new tank service and easily receive notifications such as critical levels or drain detection using a powerful, easy-to-use mobile app, text message or email.
Make immediate changes or schedule new tank service, right from your phone- 24/7. Check the status of all tanks, set search filters, and receive alerts in real-time on app tank monitoring so you can react instantly.
Digitize your operation and consolidate tank data, regardless of hardware provider, in the SmartTank portal. The Proxy Tank feature in SmartTank can be used with third-party monitors or other external systems (SCADA or UST software).

What is tank monitoring system?
A tank monitoring system uses telemetry equipment to automatically access, record, and transmit data from remote storage tanks using wireless hardware and sensors linked to a computer database via cellular or satellite networks.
How does a tank telemtery work?
The rugged monitoring devices report liquid or gas levels inside the storage tanks through centralized servers and then distribute that data using the providers’ Internet of Things (IoT) platform.
Lubricant and fuel distributors, chemical distributors, agriculture, water, and gas distributors use tank level monitoring data to improve workflow and cut down on costs tied to drivers, fuel and vehicle maintenance, unused product, and customer service.
Does tank monitoring reduce the risk of emergency tank run outs?
Tank level monitoring uses precise sensors located inside the storage tank to transmit tank levels through an application. Digitally monitoring tank status gives distributors accurate data that can be used to either forecast deliveries or respond to automated alerts when a customer is running low, avoiding costly runouts before they happen.
In addition, by analyzing tank utilization in real-time, enterprise distributors can group tanks by geographic area and reduce unnecessary deliveries.
How quickly can I monitor the amount of fuel in my bulk and customer tanks?
Tank data is collected and viewed immediately on-site by the installation team, eliminating the need to return to the site after installation. In addition, SkyBitz bulk tank monitoring system allow distributors to customize their dashboards by tank type and location, product, and levels.
SmartTank monitors report both on a regular schedule and can react in real time to changes in the tank level, triggering alarms and notifications.
Can one platform monitor my customer and bulk tanks at the same time?
Distributors can use our tank monitoring technology to monitor their bulk storage tanks in the yard or across their customer portfolio, so they can better manage their product inventory through one platform.
Tank usage data can integrate with cloud-based dispatch and routing software systems, such as the SmartTank Dispatch Software, used by distributors to automate and optimize the planning process to deliver more gallons with fewer stops.
Accurate product inventory combined with real-time customer tank level data across your entire customer portfolio contributes to a reduction in labor requirements and vehicle maintenance costs.
Is the tank monitoring software easy to use?
Our software gives users a full menu of information to monitor current tank levels, product temperatures and maps the locations of tanks. Users can also view available tank capacity, signal strength, battery levels, and alarms for tanks with low inventory levels.
Designed to streamline data from multiple remote assets through one platform, users have access to various user-friendly dashboards to provide real-time information for immediate action or track usage history over time to forecast and plan smarter distribution strategies.
Does remote tank level monitoring improve route and delivery systems?
Employees no longer need to call customers to get daily orders or manually stick their tanks for tank level readings, contributing to high administrative and labor costs. Having 24/7 visibility of tank levels and historical inventory usage prevents emergency runouts and helps reduce over-servicing tanks, which also costs distributors money.
Tank locations and inventory information can be sorted into regions and routes to create density and plan deliveries. Enterprise distributors can integrate our data into fuel or propane dispatch software systems for process automation.
Are tank monitoring gauges accurate?
Our standard monitors are accurate to +/- 1% when reporting on fuel, chemical, and lubricant products. Propane monitors provide a reasonable accuracy of 5%. However, the wireless monitoring device is only half the solution when building a tank distribution strategy.
The software component is vital to distributors that want to reduce emergency deliveries and better manage their margins.
Distributors can set thresholds specific to tank characteristics such as geographic location or typical runout frequency.
Can I see tank data online for water, fuel/propane, and gas tanks all in one app?
Our highly configurable platform is prebuilt with dashboards customized to view tank location by customer and tank type, tank level and various sensor data, emergency alerts, and hardware and battery status.
Rugged tank monitoring devices and sensors accurately measure and provide insight into large bulk storage tanks, mini-bulk storage tanks, IBC tanks or totes, underground tanks, and propane tanks.
Using a highly secure cloud-based system, users can access remote tank data via one wireless tank monitoring platform via a desktop computer or through the app on any mobile device.
How does SkyBItz wireless tank monitoring system differ from other providers?
SkyBitz uses a common architecture for tank monitors that integrate with various sensors. Each sensor is designed to monitor any liquid reliably, whether a tank of petroleum or a harsh chemical such as bleach, in any temperature environment while maintaining a standardized installation process.
In addition, our tank monitoring solution can seamlessly integrate with other SkyBitz systems such as SmartTank Dispatch or SmartTruck Dispatch & Delivery.
Our software also maintains a 99% up-time rate, so our customers never have to worry about outages or downtime.
Is it expensive to change to a different tank monitoring system?
When transitioning to a new tank monitoring provider, it’s important to ensure your field team can easily install and set up the tank monitoring hardware on-site. SkyBitz SmartTank allows customers to quickly configure the wireless monitor using intelligent sensors and an intuitive mobile app.
Recording a few pre-install details such as tank location, height, type, capacity, product level, and current level, your rep can quickly verify each tank reports accurate data before they leave the site.
In addition, our dedicated sales engineers assist new customers with the product selection and an implementation strategy, ensuring minimal impact to the operation.
