Roadmap December 2019 Issue

Let's Think in Numbers

From the questions and observations we are exposed to on the field on a day to day basis, we sometimes get the impression that the sheer effect of fuel theft is not well understood by all of the stakeholders of these sectors, or perhaps they have not sat down with a calculator to reflect on the implications of unprotected diesel.

We have therefore decided to dedicate this month's ROADMAP 06  article to a very pragmatic summary which can cast light on the ever debated issue of convenience behind investing in an area which has never been a concern for many, but given the figures, should be.

Take some time to check out our article in ROADMAP 06, December, 2019 issue.

What is the the recipe to adeguate Fuel Protection and Management?

In the current issue of ROADMAP we share some of our experience on the uncomfortable truth of Fuel Theft, and how to avoid it

When we started operating in this business, we ran an informal survey involving a number of Central European companies running diesel operated fleets as part of our investigative marketing activity aimed at understanding the true nature of the needs of this sector. Our curiosity then focussed only fuel theft as the primary inefficiency involving fuel in vehicle based operations, driving behavior was still far from our core concern so it was not considered. Despite the relatively limited geographic scope of the exercise, one must consider that the period in which our survey took place, the cost of fuel had reached a historic high in absolute terms as well as relative to all the other costs sustained by the fleet, so our assumption was that fuel theft, as a consequence, may have also have reached higher levels. Our findings revealed figures which gravitated somewhere between 3 and 5% of fuel loss due to mis-appropriation only considering medium sized freight and logistics companies. A figure which as a mere percentage does not sound alarm bells in the mind of many, but which, converted into hard currency value, reveals figures which would make most fleet operators re-think their policy regarding the effective use of fuel.

In the past, the buzzer option was only available with Zipper Wireless, and eventual requirements of this type needed to be addressed by bespoke installations by auto electricians.  Now, with this accessory, you just need to connect ZIPPER WIRED to the ECU, which in turn provides digital output and buzzer capability, involving a supplied 101db buzzer.
  1. The need for digital negative and/or digital positive output.

Bydgoszcz, June 14, 2019

After a year's break, Autos Truck Day returns to the calendar of events in the truck industry.

It will be a comeback in a big way!


This year's fair will be held on Friday, June 14. From the beginning, the event has been fully devoted to the truck industry.

Autos Truck Day 2019


Autos customers will have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the latest range of the largest brands of commercial vehicle parts and the new workshop offer. The most important change will be the location. The whole event has so far been held at the Autos Headquarters in Solec Kujawski, this year it will be a completely new place. We invite our clients and exhibitors to the Bydgoszcz Trade Fair and Exhibition Center.


BCTW is a modern facility with over 16,000 sq m of usable space and almost 11,000 sq m of exhibition space with the option of dividing it into three independent segments. All exhibitors presenting their offer during Autos Truck Day, which this year is already close to 90, that is more than in 2017, will fit into such space. Among the exhibitors there were many European and global brands. Soon, a website dedicated to the 8th Autos Truck Day will be launched.


During the 8th edition of Autos Truck Day, we will present you with a wide range of suppliers, whose range is available in the Autos network, including workshop equipment. In addition to the very extensive ATD trade fair, it also includes integration, a lot of attractions, and at the end of the tradition, the artistic part ended with a great concert. The invitation for this year's Autos Truck Day in May will be available at the Autos network branches


From January 16 to 19, 2019, we welcome you to our booth at AutoZUM 2019 in Salzburg, Austria

Come visit us at AutoZUM for our official debut in Austria.

AutoZum 2019 - The automotive industry gathering

Once every two years the AutoZum presents a unique range of products from automobile parts, workshop, garage and fuel station facilities, car washing technology, to accessories and tuning goods; and provides perfect conditions for setting up business deals, cultivating contacts and networking. For over 40 years this show has served markets far beyond the borders of Austria. It is the leading trade fair for automotive products and the most important commercial gathering for the automotive after sales industry. Salzburg is the ideal location, and the expo centre is the perfect venue due to its ultra-modern trade fair complex and central position at the hub of the central European road, rail and aviation network.

2019 - This is the year of CONVERGENCE

Taking Stock on 2018, the year that's been and 2019, the year to come.

2018 is winding down as our northern hemisphere winter sets in. An important year for Genesis, the year  in which our people, our products, our process and our  partnerships all converge harmoniously in a new scenario which stems from the vision which has been at the centre of our focus since our establishment as a company.

Only a few months have passed since the conclusion of IAA 2018, our main showcase to a world wide audience, our biggest marketing investment yet, and we have already begun sowing what has stemmed from the seeds that we lovingly and carefully planted at the show (and during the whole year which led up to this important event). An event, IAA, where a new product catalogue, a new website, a new approach and a whole new portfolio of propositions are the living expression of what guided us in our choice to incorporate LagoGENESIS srl in the first months of 2017, a date which today, on one hand seems like yesterday, but on the other, seems like a distant memory if one considers all that we have done.  Despite a market trend which is not overly optimistic, our stance remains positive through the many confirmations and valuable feedback that you, our audience, have provided throughout the year, leading all the way to IAA. More than market optimism, it is the certainty that our products are truly targeting the needs of individual operators which is comforting. This gives us the sense that all that we have done has been truly worth while, and will in one way or another contribute significantly to our bottom line.

Speaking of Convergence, our Telematic Convergence program, or more specifically, IOT the INTERNET OF TRUCKS has yes, generated interest, interesting feedback and even more so, orders! So these last months have seen us engaged in running “one on one” training programs at our headquarters in Bassano del Grappa, in which qualified international personnel is instructed on programming and installing our state of the art Fuel Controller and all its accessories, including Zipper and Mach II series Kockons.  The convergence of respectable partners with our development path is a further element of pride. 2018 has seen us become certified partners of organizations such as Tom Tom Telematics. Our IOT integrations include other important names which we will be making public in the near future, all of which are already up and running and currently functional integrations. Then there are at least three times this number of other integrations in the pipeline. To conclude, Fuel Controller, which just over a year ago was an advanced concept, today is a fully E49 certified and CE marked system product, a further converging element in this overall picture, which puts us on the map of automotive components suppliers, and our product on the map of worthy aftermarket options, a status we’ve aspired to and worked hard to obtain, while

our ISO 9001 certification is in the works.  To support us in making all this “good news” known to our partners in the marketplace, we have deployed a new web strategy which sees our website, our Fuel Controller portal and our social media presence all integrated, connected and “mobile friendly”. Our new website is a true portal with the declared intent of informing and sharing knowledge. A place where market appeal and technical specification co-exist. A place where features are made clear through quality content and clear visual coding. A place where casual navigation also leaves space to functional shortcuts in which just a few clicks will lead specialists to the right combination of products for each circumstance, and all technical specifications are updated to the very last second. Our new catalogue follows the same guideline: we’ve grouped our entire proposition under the one document, using what we’ve learned from the various players in the market place to put our product under a more relevant light, a light which takes into account the differing, yet convergent vision we’ve been exposed to. New commercial groupings address the various points of view which the marketplace has revealed, be it protection of fuel or fuel management, making our complete system relevant from all vantage points.


So at the light of all that is NEW, what better opportunity than the present to wish all of our partners and loyal users:

A Tank Full of Optimism for 2019. Sincere Greetings of a Happy Christmas and a Prosperous, Sustainable New Year!

Hannover, September 28, 2018

As we watch our booth being broken down we start summing it all up. These walls, this almost monumental set which has been our stage for the last 10 days slowly transforms from architecture to cargo as the automotive industry's equivalent of a rock concert passes of state from a high frequency vibration to a slow oscillation at the end of which the Hannover Messe will seem a bare shell, ready for the next spectacle. 
This is IAA 2018: 10 days of meetings, new products, broadening networks, long awaited confirmations, and answers to all of those questions which we thought we knew the answers to, but often discovered we didn't! This edition of IAA saw a very focused interest in the entire GENESIS product range.  Our time tested Kockon anti siphon devices prove to be still in line with the needs of operators worldwide, while the current updated versions from the Mach II range continue to surprise our public through their new modular configurations, always up to the task no matter how articulated the specific need is.  Fuel Controller once again earns the praise of a very demanding market where software and information technology merge with hardware, in our TELEMATIC CONVERGENCE program.  A particular surprise comes from our Fuel Teller Software and the add ons designed for ZIPPER smart fuel caps, dedicated to smaller operators who need simple, transpartent solution that provide quality information on their transport operations, to help them tackle the future with confidence and a certain degree of predictability.  These solutions received the desired confirmations to testify their relevance, thanks to the quality feedback we were able to gather during the entire duration of the show.
We therefore thank all of our visitors and invite you to keep your eye on this space as our immagination becomes reality thanks to your help and continued support. 
See you in 2020, a new future to be forged!

GENESIS consolidates a postion in social Media land!

With IAA 2018, GENESIS makes it's mark on social media by adding LINKEDIN and INSTAGRAM to the longstanding YOUTUBE channel.

After years of YOUTUBE as a resource to help installers and customers on the field with some of the most common aspects of installation of our products, Genesis has decided to consolidate a position in social media with a broader program in mind.  Since the onset of our flagship "Classic" product, the Kockòn, the recognition of our product through a mere visual design standpoint has become a major asset and foundation stone to our brand, so we have chosen to expand our social media presence to platforms such as Instagram, where an image says a thousand words, which in our case, tend to be words which are readily related to our brand identity.  From September 21st, during the IAA show in Hannover, remember to check our profiles and LIKE it if you LIKE it a LOT!

Our New Product catalogue is published

The GENESIS range seen from different vantage points, a story from which we can all learn something new

Our new product catalogue is out!  We've grouped our entire proposition under the one document, using what we've learned from the various players in the market place to show our product under different lights, according to each point of view we've been exposed to.  From this approach we've invented new names for our product programs, which depend largely on which combination of elements is used in one's quest to protect and manage fuel, names such as TELEMATIC CONVERGENCE, THE INTERNET OF TRUCKS, TRANSFORM-ABLE and so on.  These commercial groupings of product address the various points of view which exist in the marketplace, be it protection of fuel or management of fuel at stake, as well as the precise positioning of the interested party  within the value chain of the vast world of transportation, logistics, or other operation where fuel is of the essence.
The concept of product groupings which are designed to create suitable hardware bundles for each requirement, is even further explored in our brand new website where the interctive nature of the tool allows dynamic display of information.  We hope you find these tools useful in your quest to equip your fleet or help others in their quest. 

Don't forget to check

From September 20th, our new website debuts at the usual URL

With IAA, our new website fires up with the intent of giving trade operators and end users a set of valid tools in understanding how our product proposition nests into the opportunity of fuel protection and management.  A true portal where our knowledge can be shared is the format we have chosen for this edition of our website.  A place where market appeal and technical specification co-exist.  A place where features are made clear with text and images and clear visual coding.  A place where casual navigation is possible, yet leaving space to functional shortcuts where just a few clicks will lead specialists to the right combination of products for each circumstance.
This, however, is only the start, because we're already "baking" further utilities which aim at helping our audience clear apparently complex circumstances with a minimum effort.  These utilities will be published as we move forward, and updates are promised, not only on the product proposition, but also on the way it's best presented and proposed, to make your ventures with our products a more successful proposition.
With IAA in the pipeline, I guess we could use an analogy and say: "Surf's up"... so let's go surf
