Nobody wants to be deceived. But we have to deal with deception all the time, especially in the context of aggravating low spiritual education. Therefore, while the culture is in decline, hope for conscientiousness.
Everyone's desire to be financially secure is understandable. But some, in order to improve their well-being, try to increase their development and receive decent wages, others do not hesitate and are looking for ways of easy money. The greatest "lovers of easy money" are financially responsible persons and know all the ways of easy enrichment.
Only automated accounting can be a barrier to theft, minimizing the influence of the human factor.
At first glance, the introduction of automated accounting is quite an expensive undertaking, but if on the other side of the scale we put the obtained benefits and advantages, it turns out, what is it worth.
The present equipment of departmental and on-farm filling stations does not allow for objective accounting of petroleum products, since the existing equipment is morally and physically obsolete. In addition, this equipment does not provide for its connection to an automated accounting system. And in some farms, equipment is refueled even from cans. In such conditions, it is simply impossible to prove any fact of theft.
In addition to the material factor, the introduction of automated accounting is also hindered by a psychological factor. It is associated with ignorance of equipment and system solutions, mistrust of their reliability and fear of deliberate sabotage by personnel.
In this regard, the majority of farm managers, who are already "fed up" with the ownerless state of affairs, decide to partially establish accounting at a minimum - acquire electronic fuel dispensers and a console control system. Yes, thus, a general accounting of fuel output with an accuracy class is made 0,25% until then, until the seals are broken. But the rest of the accounting is done manually: acceptance, storage, for a specific driver, machine operator, etc..
But, I must pay tribute, there were many business leaders, especially visited, to exchange experience abroad, or run several farms in different regions, who understand the need to establish end-to-end automated accounting.
- All of the above applies to accounting for petroleum products in the agro-industrial complex. The share of expenses for the purchase of fuels and lubricants is from 30 to 60% from the budget of enterprises. Therefore, the control and accounting of this cost item is a very relevant topic.
Such accounting systems have already been developed on the Ukrainian market and have already been partially implemented on some farms. Why partially? Because the system can be implemented in stages and, having mastered one or two stages, the heads of enterprises calm down. And they introduced metering only at the stage of dispensing fuel from a stationary gas station and from a gasoline tanker in the field, where the largest number of violations.
The generalized principle of this accounting is as follows:
- stationary filling stations are equipped with fuel dispensers with built-in identification system and built-in GSM modem (no operator required);
- fuel trucks are equipped with mobile fuel dispensers with a built-in identification system and built-in GSM modem;
- in the central office, specialized software is installed on the PC, which registers electronic keys and then sets the limits for refueling on them (if necessary). The software also collects reporting data from all points of issue and generates reports for each object, to the fuel truck and the owner of the electronic key: to whom, when, how much and what petroleum product was released. This software can be interfaced with the 1C Accounting program.
But in this system there is no accounting for the reception and control of the storage of petroleum products. While at this stage there are not so many, but one-time more voluminous thefts. Such gaps are closed by installing a system for measuring the volume and mass of oil products in tanks.
Sure, each enterprise has its own specifics, but the system developed at LLC AZT Slavutich is flexible and, if desired, can be adapted to farms with different structures.
Such accounting systems in the Ukrainian market have already been developed and have already been partially implemented on some farms. Why partially? Because the system can be implemented in stages and having mastered one – two stages business leaders calm down. And they introduced metering only at the stage of dispensing fuel from a stationary Gas station and from a fuel truck in the field, where the largest number of violations.
In the article, we provide a generalized trend, taking into account petroleum products in the agricultural sector. Hopefully, that the number of judicious owners will increase.
