AST Corporation


Drop Tank, a leader in gas station loyalty technology and solutions, wanted to expand its market to include hotels, airlines, and other retail partners, as well as improve its loyalty capabilities by leveraging digital technology. The company had been using on-site equipment at gas stations to manually retrieve and utilize customer and program data.

Drop Tank sought the following:

  • Effective management of limitations within its data landscape, which consisted of disparate and siloed business solutions; and
  • Maintenance of its gas station rewards program, despite aging technology and proprietary standards.

“AST’s assessment laid the foundation for a collaborative partnership and long-term success for Drop Tank.”
