EROAD – Fuel Management Solution

 

Fuel is one of the largest expenses for transport operators. Improved fuel efficiency across your fleet accumulated over time will generate huge savings for your business. NZ Fuel Cards is an Integration Partner with EROAD, a business which provides fuel management solutions for vehicle fleets.

EROAD’s telematics solution has an intuitive and powerful fuel management module, that helps you manage your fuel use by combining fuel records with vehicle distance and location information generated by the EROAD vehicle hardware.

Fuel data generated from your NZ Fuel Cards’ BP, Mobil or Z Business card is automatically imported daily from NZ Fuel Cards and can be managed in EROAD’s Depot. The EROAD fuel reporting suite helps you understand fuel consumption across your fleet, and identify exceptions and underperforming vehicles or drivers.

Gaining better visibility over fuel consumption enables you to address specific issues and monitor progress over time. Learn more about EROAD’s Fuel Management module here:

If you sign up as an EROAD customer, and are also an NZ Fuel Cards customer, we will provide the fuel purchasing data EROAD requires to access their fuel management solution. 

Benchmarks – what are they?

 

Benchmarks are a price comparison service we offer for businesses who wish to compare their current fuel card pricing against our fuel pricing.  This is a free service for businesses who’s monthly fuel bill is $2,500 or more.

There is no obligation to sign up with NZ Fuel Cards when requesting a benchmark.  Our expectation is that we can offer you a better price, and you then decide if you want to take up our offer or not.  Worst case, you confirm you are getting a good price from your current provider, and it cost you nothing to find out.

To request a Benchmark comparison on your current fuel card account:

  • Confirm your current monthly spend is $2,500 or more.
  • Send through a copy of your most recent fuel invoice to [email protected].
  • Ask for a “Benchmark Comparison” to be done.
  • That’s it!

We will endeavour to get the results of the comparison back to you within 7-10 working days.  We take time to check each transaction you’ve made and compare at the same service station or truck stop versus our prices at those same locations or nearby.

Requesting a Benchmark

Email [email protected] with a copy of your most recent fuel invoice and request a fuel Benchmark.  It’s that easy!

eAlerts – what are they?

 

eAlerts are an email reporting system built into NZ Fuel Cards’ billing system, which when activated on your account can help you keep track of how your fuel cards are being used.

You can receive automated eAlerts when:

  • Your staff spend over 80% of their monthly card limit
  • multiple transactions are made in one day
  • transactions are made outside normal business hours (eg. 8pm to 5am)
  • multiple fuel types are purchased

eAlerts can be particularly useful when managing a large fleet of vehicles.

Case Study

A customer had a fleet of 15 vehicles.  The vehicles were only used by staff during business hours.  An employee had removed a fuel card from a vehicle and was filling up their personal vehicle at an unmanned fuel site late at night.  The eAlert informed the customer that a fuel card was being used outside normal business hours.  The client rang NZ Fuel Cards and had the card suspended and investigated the transaction.

Activating eAlerts

Email [email protected] or call +64 3 539 0623 and let us know which eAlerts you would like activated on your account.  It’s that easy!
