Switching compliance platforms would cause any compliance manager to sweat, but for Yesway’s Melissa Davis the task was made more challenging by the company’s ambitious growth. Until 2019, Yesway had been slowly expanding by acquiring small convenience store groups, but that all changed with the acquisition of Allsup’s, a regional chain in New Mexico with more than 300 stores. Yesway’s site count quadrupled overnight and it quickly became apparent that the company would need a new compliance solution to keep up with the rapid growth.
Searching for a Solution
At the time of the acquisition, Yesway’s compliance platform was managed by a service provider and wasn’t sustainable for a company with ambitious growth goals. The compliance team often experienced delays in tank monitoring, complications with unnecessary alarm dispatches, and frustration with the numerous spreadsheets and databases used for compliance tracking. Additionally, Yesway had inherited a complicated tank portfolio that included varied installation dates, equipment, and federal and state requirements.
