eFueling Technologies, a provider of automated fleet fueling software and transaction processing equipment for automated unattended fueling, announced a strategic alliance with truckstop fuel transaction processing provider QuikQ. The agreement introduces eFueling to the truckstop market and expands QuikQ’s product line to additional unattended terminal business opportunities. Terms were not announced.
eFueling serves the fleet fueling industry with a line of modular RF-capable equipment designed to accept a wider variety of cards, improve reliability and serviceability, streamline fueling operations, reduce keypad errors and enhance security while easing billing and accounting. QuikQ technology allows a carrier to directly interface its enterprise software solution to a truckstop fuel vendor’s point-of-sale system, eliminating the need for fleet fuel cards and third-party billing.
The firms are working together to serve both truckstop and terminal fleet markets with a cardless system in which the entire fueling transaction is activated, managed and tracked through RF communication. Primary benefits of the RF-based system are streamlined user operation, reduced shrinkage and more accurate accounting and billing.
“Teaming with QuikQ gives us a jumpstart in the expansive truckstop market,” says Kyle Sale, executive vice president of eFueling. “We are equally excited about the enhanced efficiencies QuikQ helps us bring to the unattended terminal fueling market.”
“DFConnect is designed to automate the entire fuel transaction process from A to Z,” says Ernie Betanourt, president of QuikQ. “Whether it’s ending a transaction once the vehicle leaves the fueling zone or incorporating bus data into the fueling process, our goal is to team up with such companies as eFueling to continually bring new features and offerings to our customers.”
