The launch comes at a time when businesses of all sizes are searching for ways to maximize resources and increase efficiencies wherever possible.
"In today's economy, it's more important than ever to stay current on what's going on in our industry, since even small market fluctuations can have huge impacts on businesses of all sizes," said Mike Noles, president of FleetCards USA. "It's our goal that the blog helps foster a community where fleet managers and business owners can discuss ideas, share fleet news, comment on trends and swap best practices, so they can continue to grow and thrive in any economy."
Rather than a hard sell on its products, services and benefits, FleetCards USA's blog will focus on:
- Industry News: a gathering of the latest fleet and fuel management news from a variety of industry sources
- Trendwatch: a weekly column that will offer insight on new and upcoming trends from a rotating panel of seasoned industry experts
- Small Business Tips: a collection of articles that focus on the basics of fleet fuel management, with a slant towards the small business sector
Content will be updated between two to four times a day. FleetCards USA plans to refresh sections and topics over time, including a four-week promotional overlay featuring a weekly $50 gift card giveaway to readers who best contribute on subjects such as the "Craziest thing that a driver ever tried to expense," "Best excuse for a missing receipt," and "Worst thing a driver did to their company vehicle."
