  • PricePro - OPIS A Dow Jones Company

    When it comes to retail fuel pricing, time is money. Fuel markets are extremely volatile, and a delay in getting your fuel priced correctly at your stores can diminish your store traffic if priced too high, cost you profits if priced too low, or hurt your reputation with customers if priced out of line from your brand’s positioning within the local market. OPIS PricePro allows fuel retailers to make the best-possible, data-driven decisions much faster than legacy solutions, helping them get the right price in front of their customers as soon as possible. Leveraging our real-time fuel pricing data along with the most modern and secure technologies, OPIS PricePro is a fast and efficient fuel pricing software that works the way our customers work. 

    PricePro is the only retail fuel pricing solution that leverages OPIS’s market-leading database of 140,000 retail fuel stations with a data stream of nearly 5 million price reports per day.

Our customers monitor retail fuel prices in their local area, or across the country, in the fastest and most accurate way available with real-time notifications or scheduled pricing events so they know the moment their prices lose a competitive edge. Predictable and explainable proposed pricing by OPIS' world class data scientists is combined with our customers' experience-based, custom-defined "gut feel" strategies to provide optimal analysis and refinement of pricing opportunities. Our customers can leverage their actual volumes and costs imported directly into PricePro to improve recommendations and decision-making capabilities.
