March 2014


3-30-14 Innovative Software Solutions customer, HollyFrontier, is very satisfied with their move to AKORE® FTPlus back in 2013 their 3rd AKORE Tax product purchase. HollyFrontier Corporation is among the largest independent petroleum refiners in the United States with operations throughout the mid-continent, southwestern and Rocky Mountain regions. Subsidiaries of HollyFrontier Corporation produce and market gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, asphalt, heavy products and specialty lubricant products. The Company is headquartered in Dallas, Texas and operates five complex refineries with 443,000 barrels per day of crude oil processing capacity. The Motor Fuel Excise Tax Group states that since we moved away from another system and went with AKORE® FTPlus, we have found the differences to be very meaningful in a number of ways. Two things really stand out; first, the speed of the system is incredible. We estimate that in terms of function and resources required that we have reduced our costs by a minimum of 50%. The other significant way that the system impacts us, really on a daily basis, is that previously whenever a change was made to the system, it would require that we bring in our vendor to make those changes. AKORE FTPLUS changed that dynamic and further helped us reduce time and expense. Now, changes, big or small can be accomplished within our team on the business side and do not require IT (accept in instances where they would normally be involved.) For instance, adding products. Innovative Software Solutions, Inc. is the home of IRS EXSTARS certified AKORE® FTPlus software and AKORE® TaxCalendar, AKORE® TaxCRM, AKORE® PricingCRM, AKORE® Contacts, and AKORE® CRM software.
