U.S. Bank Voyager Fleet Systems, a provider of universal fleet fueling and maintenance cards, has entered into a fleet card referral agreement with 1st Stop stores, a division of Colorado-based Pester Marketing. Under terms of the agreement, U.S. Bank will provide invoicing, payment processing and debt collection for 1st Stop’s Pronto Stop branded fleet fueling card.
“The services U.S. Bank offers through its Voyager Fleet Systems referral program proved to be a perfect match for what the Pester Marketing leadership team was seeking,” says Jeff Rankin, senior sales and marketing officer for U.S. Bank Corporate Payment Systems. “We look forward to helping them take their product and service offering to a new level.”
Pronto Stop fleet cards now can be used at any of 230,000 Voyager fuel and maintenance locations across the United States, in addition to the 51-store chain of 1st Stops in Colorado, Kansas and Nebraska.
“By co-branding with U.S. Bank Voyager Fleet Systems, we’ve expanded the reach of the Pronto Stop card and made it more valuable to our customers,” says Rich Spresser, Pester president and chief operating officer. “We’ve also assured ourselves of high quality and reliable back-office services from U.S. Bank, while freeing our own team to focus on sales and customer relationships. This is good news for 1st Stop and its Pronto Stop card users.”
