Telogis Inc., a platform for location intelligence, and FleetCor Technologies Inc., a global provider of fuel card and workforce payment products, announced a global partnership for the integration of telematics and fuel card reporting that will assist in bringing greater visibility to a business’ fueling activities, improve reporting and help reduce unauthorized fuel card use with the ultimate goal of driving down total fuel expense.
The partnership includes the introduction of the Telogis Universal Premium Fleet Card powered by FleetCor and the launch of the next-generation fuel management module for Telogis Fleet.
The Telogis Universal Premium Fleet Card powered by FleetCor provides fleets with a universal fuel card. The card includes no application, setup or card replacement fees, and offers 24/7 customer service, flexible payment options and possible rebates.
When matched with Telogis’ Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) fleet management system, Telogis Fleet, the system matches vehicle location to fuel card transaction data to help ensure the fuel card is being used properly — verifying that the vehicle was near the pump when the card was being used, not exceeding pumping limits, etc. It also centralizes fuel transaction reporting instead of having to deal with logs and receipts.
After nearly a full year with the Electronic Logging Device mandate in effect, here's a look at what we know so far and where this important connected-vehicle technology seems to be heading.
