Dover Fueling Solutions (DFS) partnered with Microsoft Corp. to bring new “internet of things” solutions to market.
Microsoft Azure is an ever-expanding set of cloud services that let organizations build, test, deploy, secure and manage applications, services and solutions. Through this alliance, Microsoft will help DFS deliver next-generation retail site architecture and solutions that will digitally transform fueling for end customers and deliver retail site operating efficiencies, enhanced consumer experiences and new revenue streams.
