“Beyond the innovative software that allows us to gain actionable insights, improve operational efficiencies, and streamline our business, the industry expertise and regional presence from PDI supports our growth as we expand our presence in Asia Pacific,” said Dean Gilbert, general manager of Marketing and Sales at Chevron.

By 2025, nearly 73 percent of the world’s population will only access the internet through their smartphones, and 80 percent of enterprise workloads will be in the cloud. From customer-facing applications to back office solutions, businesses everywhere are relying on innovative technology to drive digital transformation.

Chevron launched its CaltexGo mobile app in response to consumer feedback about wait times at the fuel pump and in the store. Now, customers can pull into the petrol station, launch the app, input their pump number, and confirm the payment after fueling. In addition to enabling a frictionless checkout experience, the app also powers Caltex’s loyalty program, Plus!, allowing customers to easily earn and redeem rewards.

PDI’s back office software, Envoy, offers accounting automation, pricebook centralization to fuel inventory management, reduces complexity, increases visibility and delivers real-time insights that enable companies like Chevron to transform their business.

PDI opened a new office location in Bangkok to build a local presence and work with partners in the area. The facility in Bangkok now serves as PDI’s operations hub for customers in South East Asia. PDI has over 200 employees in the region, said Sin Hin Wong, managing director and vice president of Sales, APAC, at PDI.
