NexTraq Provides Comprehensive Fuel Card Program
Integration Provides Holistic View of Fleet Operations While Saving Money
NexTraq, the value leader of GPS fleet tracking and vehicle management solutions, today announces fuel card integration capabilities. By integrating fleet fuel card purchasing with the NexTraq ™ Fleet Tracking platform, customers gain a comprehensive view of fleet operations, offering a more holistic understanding of fleet fuel costs and inefficiencies.
“The retrieval of fuel card data and fuel costs is time consuming, and this combined with feedback from customers led us to put a great deal of research and effort into this program,” explains Mike Scarbrough, CEO of NexTraq. “With fuel card integration, our customers have access to new fuel-based reports, simplifying the retrieval process and ultimately, saving time and money.”
Fuel Purchase Reports
Fleet managers can view a Fuel Card Purchase History Report, which provides a full summary of all fuel and fuel related purchases, streamlining the retrieval of fuel card data. Customers can tailor reports by company, fleet or vehicle; identifying total costs without sifting through a variety of card statements. With complete visibility, fleet managers can closely manage how fuel cards are being used, eliminating employee abuse.
Tom Wagner, VP of Strategic Markets for Fleet One, said, “Fleet One is excited about this integration; it provides a great comprehensive tool that adds real value for our mutual customers.”
Fuel Tax Reporting
Many companies have to submit quarterly fuel tax reports to the International Fuel Tax Association (IFTA.) Typically a monotonous process, NexTraq’s fuel card program offers a specific IFTA Fuel Tax Report, which saves customers time when preparing the report by showing the big picture of a fleet’s fuel card spending.
Fuel Merchant Mapping
Not only does the program include comprehensive reports, dispatchers can easily identify fuel card merchants with point-of-interest mapping as well as navigate drivers to the closest merchants through the Garmin® in-vehicle navigation device. The new fuel card integration is a free service for NexTraq customers and activation is simple for fleet managers who currently have a membership with a fleet card provider.
“In combination with NexTraq’s fuel reporting, our new fuel card integration gives our customers the ability to effectively manage what was once an obstacle,” states Scarbrough. “By automating a tedious, manual process, fleet managers can save time and money as they can pinpoint areas of interest to save in fuel costs through their fleet operations.”
