     FLORHAM PARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 21, 2008--KSS, the global leading supplier of fuels pricing analytics, execution and optimization systems to the oil and gas, convenience store, grocery and big-box retail industries, announces that Susser Holdings Corp. has selected KSS PriceNet, including its remote access modules known as PriceNet Mobile and PriceNet Web.
     Susser Holdings Corp., headquartered in Corpus Christi, Texas, will use PriceNet to help manage fuel prices at its 500-plus retail facilities throughout Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma. In addition to streamlining the headquarters' fuels pricing process to respond more rapidly to ever-increasing cost and price volatility, the PriceNet Mobile and Web modules allow field-based personnel to report key pricing events as they occur, and quickly receive price updates and other key performance data. Following the recent acquisition of Town and Country Food Stores, an existing KSS customer at that time, Susser Holdings has chosen to expand the use of KSS PriceNet.
     Craig Scotton, director of fuels for Susser Holdings, said, “KSS’ track record at Town and Country convinced us of the business value that PriceNet can bring to our fuels pricing operations in supporting our mission of delivering quality fuels at competitive prices, combined with fast, friendly service.”
     â€œSusser Holdings is a highly successful and customer-focused operator and we are proud to be associated with them as a valued supplier. We look forward to expanding the use of our PriceNet solution across the Susser network of sites,” said Bob Stein, KSS chief executive officer and president.
