Las Vegas gas station and convenience store chain Terrible Herbst has begun to migrate to PDI’s enterprise resource planning software in the wake of PDI’s acquisition of all ERP assets of its former competitor The Pinnacle Corporation.
Terrible Herbst, a Pinnacle customer since 2003, becomes the first of more than 100 Pinnacle accounts to make the transition since PDI closed the transaction in January. “Our decision to make the switch to PDI was really driven by their ability to reduce our software footprint and allow us to manage every part of our operation with a single solution,” said Matt Osa, vice president of operations for Terrible Herbst.
The 24-hour retailer – which operates 110 convenience stores, 41 car washes and 20 oil change and smog locations among its gas stations – will deploy PDI’s newly integrated ERP solution, as well as its retail and home office software, price book, lottery and financial modules. Osa said the migration is expected to improve Terrible Herbst’s productivity and efficiency across all of its business lines.
Pinnacle has been providing software and services to convenience store and gas station operators since 1990. With its remaining assets, Pinnacle continues to offer point-of-sale, payments and loyalty software.
PDI, previously known as Professional Datasolutions Inc., first began offering enterprise management software to similar clients in 1983. Currently, more than 500 companies worldwide use PDI’s software for retail automation, business intelligence, financial reporting, workforce management and end-to-end fuel supply chain management, including logistics.
“We are excited to add Pinnacle’s offerings, people and expertise to our existing portfolio,” said PDI’s CEO Jimmy Frangis. “The addition of Pinnacle’s software further demonstrates our commitment to the convenience-retail and wholesale-petroleum industries. Pinnacle has a great customer base, and we look forward to serving these customers and their business needs for many years to come.”
In the end, migrating to a single-source ERP solution simplifies Terrible Herbst’s enterprise management, while bringing together PDI and Pinnacle ERP software under a single umbrella eliminates redundancies in the industry.
