Precision Fuel Injection, Inc.: Customer Success Story

August 17, 2018 • 3 min read

Precision Fuel Injection, Inc. is a Honolulu-based company that rebuilds and calibrates diesel fuel systems. The business, family-owned and operated, is the last of its kind in the Aloha state. Serving both Hawaii and the rest of the South Pacific, Precision Fuel Injection proudly treats its customers like family.

The business, which opened in 1991, had decided it was time to modernize certain aspects of the company.

The Hawaiian company outgrew its annual pen-and-paper inventory

For nearly 30 years, Precision Fuel Injection had relied on a once-yearly handwritten inventory to account for all of its supplies and resources.

“With over 10,000 items in the shop, I’d have to manually count, label, and write on paper the status of every single thing,” said Samuel Gray Jr., the company’s fuel system technician, information technology expert and owner’s son. “I’d been doing it for years and still had no clue or catalog of what we really had. It was such a headache.”

When Samuel was given more leeway to modernize the business, improving the inventory system was one of his first to-dos.

“It was hard for me to prove to my dad that we could get organized without spending a couple of thousand dollars for an inventory program,” said Samuel. “The shop is well-equipped but we are so small. There was no use for a big-name, high-dollar program. We needed something simple and basic so I could not only learn more about our business instantly but start getting us organized.”

With Sortly, Precision Fuel Injection started saving time and money right away    

Samuel liked Sortly right away. His favorite part? “The user interface is simple and easy to use,” said Samuel.

Samuel has also found that a modern inventory is saving him loads of time. Said Samuel, “If I get a parts request, I can get an answer within seconds compared to spending 5 to 10 minutes having to look for the item manually. Sortly is saving us time which in turn saves us money.”

Samuel happily reports that even though he’s been using Sortly for just a few months, he’s already added 15,000 items to his inventory. He’s able to learn more about the business as he adds each item to Sortly, all while fulfilling his full-time responsibilities as a fuel technician.

Samuel said, “You have nothing to lose by trying Sortly, especially with the free trial. If you need to get your business or home organized, this is the app for you. Don’t be fooled by the simple layout—the system is beneficial and customizable.”
