Comdata Corp., a provider of electronic payment products, has introduced a new cardless fueling solution for travel centers and transportation companies. The program provides a faster, more efficient way for drivers to fuel up, while giving transportation companies even more options to control the fuel-purchasing process.
The cardless program uses RFID technology to initiate transactions at the fuel terminal, instead of requiring the presence of a card to facilitate the process. Companies install RFID tags in each of their vehicles that activate fuel terminals at approved RFID-equipped locations as the vehicles pull alongside them.
By the time the driver steps out to the pump, the purchase has been authorized according to specific controls established for his or her vehicle. This streamlined process allows drivers to spend less time at the pump since the RFID tag eliminates most, if not all, of their data entry tasks. As a result, the program simplifies the overall fuel-purchasing process by automating the transaction for drivers, expediting the authorization, and reducing the chances of fraudulent purchases being made on a card.
The cardless program utilizes the Fuel Island Manager platform from QuikQ, a software development company that specializes in technology for the transportation industry. As the exclusive marketer of the program, Comdata will install and support the Fuel Island Manager platform for participating merchants.
