Introducing Manual Price Entry and better UX Consistency

Every station owner wants their pole prices to be changed in a timely fashion. And we all know that just because you have sent a new price through to your Station Managers, it doesn’t mean it has been actioned - or actioned correctly. 😱

 In our latest EdgePetrol product releases we have launched new UX improvements that give you more visibility on previous and pending price changes so that you can see the current price whilst the change is still pending and access this information throughout EdgePetrol.

Consistency in how we display pending and current pole prices across the app

Consistency in how we display pending and current pole prices across the app

We’ve added even more consistency with how we display current and pending pole prices across the app. Previously in some areas the pending price was above the current, others below.

Now throughout the app, the pending pole price is also bigger and below the current pole price.

Manually enter desired pole price on the Local Competitor Widget

Users can now enter the specific pole price they want their price to change to in the local competitor widget. Previously, you would have to increment up or down from the existing price. Incrementing is still present, but now you can enter the specific price, which will allow you to change the decimal should you wish to.

This provides more flexibility when selecting new prices and allows for new strategies that involve the flexing of decimal points.

Say hello, to Performance Report Exporting

Ok, so we’re all about ditching those spreadsheets, but downloading your data was important to you.

Which is why we are absolutely buzzing to share this news with you…

We’ve added the functionality to download the data to a CSV file on the portfolio and station page performance reporting widgets!

No more dragging the cursor awkwardly to the bottom of the screen. Just one click and BOOM! your file is ready with exactly the same data as the filters you have set.

We’ve added other useful features!


Competitor Price Movements Visualised in Local Competitor Widget


This allows you to easily see if a competitor has moved down or up in price without having to hover over on the local competitor widget.

Indication when pole price is set to be actioned in Station List Group Price Editing Page

When you hovered over a pending pole price on the Station List Group Price Editing Page or the Local Competitor Widget, the tool tip would say ‘The orange price indicates there is price change pending for this grade’.

Now, if the pending pole price was set to be actioned in the future and the time it was set to be actioned has not passed, the tool tip states when the pole price is set to be actioned.
