Quick Fuel, a provider of fueling solutions for commercial fleets and other U.S. businesses, has partnered with payments processor Comdata in an attempt to speed fueling and boost security.
As part of the partnership, Quick Fuel has installed Comdatas fuel site controller SmartSight equipment for unattended fueling sites to all of its retail locations. Initially introduced in 2013, SmartSight processes diesel, gasoline and natural gas payments from fleet, retail and proprietary fueling cards, enabling fuel site owners to remotely control fuel sites by monitoring transaction data and pump controls in real time.
Quick Fuel also added Comdatas SmartQ, a product that uses radio frequency identification technology that is used to read drivers' fuel card data from programmed tags that are installed in the windshield.
SmartSight fits Quick Fuels automated business model that was designed to enable drivers to refuel in less than 10 minutes, says Chuck Jacobus, Quick Fuel CEO, in an April 23 press release. The SmartSight card reader equipment also has an integrated camera that combines with the SmartQ software to provide added security, Jacobus said.
Quick Fuel has more than 50 automated fueling locations across the country. SmartSight will be installed in these locations by July 1, 2014.
Comdata's other clients include Lowe's, which uses Comdata's technology to automate fleet payments.
