“Based on thousands of hours of testing and customer feedback, we
redesigned the Matrix® Total Fluid Management System™,
transforming it into the Pulse Fluid Management system,” said Joshua
Holmstadt, Graco’s Lubrication Equipment Division Product Marketing
Manager. “The Pulse system is designed with the user in mind. This
simple and versatile system allows managers and other key stakeholders
to monitor the business and access reporting tools from any
network-connected device including PCs, tablets or smartphones.”

Technicians dispense thousands of dollars of fluids every week,
including petroleum and synthetic-based oils, coolants, gear lube and
more. The Pulse system allows users to know what type of fluid was used,
how much, where and when it was dispensed, and who was performing the

“We perform nearly 3,000 oil changes per month, and topping off a
5-quart tank to 5.2, 5.5 or even 6 quarts can easily lead to 1,000
quarts that have not been billed,” said one service manager who field
tested the product. “With the cost of oils, this creates an expense
burden on parts or service, but with the Pulse system, that burden is
lifted. My technicians are held accountable.”

Users can capture previously lost or unassigned costs and uncover hidden
profits with the Pulse system, easily tracking bulk fluid activities and
monitoring inventory from the storage tanks to dispensers. The Pulse
system provides transparency from the service bay to the back office,
allowing decision makers to know what’s happening at any given moment.

The Pulse Fluid Management system’s applications extend beyond the
automobile industry. Opportunities abound for other industries including
mining, fleet services, trucking, heavy construction, oil companies and
more. For more information or to contact a Graco distributor, visit
