Liquid Petroleum gas cylinders

The petroleum Act number 2 of 2019 passed by an act of parliament was introduced in order to help introduce measures to help protect consumers of LPG and regulate the different players within the industry. According to the regulations, gas retailers who are the last point of contact with the customer are supposed to issue the consumer with a receipt containing the following information.

· Name, address, and telephone of the retailer

· Name and telephone of the consumer

· date of the sale

· cylinder brand

· serial number or quick response code of the cylinder

· serial number or quick response code of the seal

In addition, gas retailers are required to keep customer records for at least 1 year for reference purposes by the EPRA inspection officers. At the moment most gas retailers are using manual processes to keep these records and issue customer receipts which can be cumbersome and is prone to loss as the records can disappear anytime.

DukaPos provides a solution to this problem by providing a mobile point of sale system designed specifically to meet the needs of gas retailers. The system can maintain an electronic copy of customer records, issue EPRA compliant receipts with all the relevant information, and the basic point of sale services such as inventory management, sales reports, staff management, invoicing, and payment integration. The system is mobile-based since most retailers can easily access a smartphone and it comes with a wireless receipt printer. A sample of the receipt format generated by the system is shown below.

It is our objective that DukaPos will be adopted by the roughly 10,000 gas retailers in Kenya in order to enhance compliance with the LPG LAWS 2019.
