Transflo by Pegasus TransTech announced a new telematics and payment partnership with EFS – a WEX Company.
Under the terms of the agreement, EFS adds Transflo Telematics to its portfolio of data, payment, and compliance offerings. EFS clients seeking electronic logging device (ELD) technology to comply with the government’s December deadline will be referred to Transflo for standard E-Log services or full fleet telematics capabilities.
EFS clients who purchase a Transflo ELD can choose to pick up the device at participating Pilot and Flying J Travel Centers across the United States. When the purchase is made, the buyer receives a single-use digital coupon on their mobile phone. The coupon can be redeemed for an ELD product at the check-out counter in stores. The new customer can then register the unit using the Transflo mobile app on their smartphone and plug the device into the truck to finish the installation and activation.
“The new channel partnership, together with product fulfillment at Pilot Flying J, moves transportation forward in a big way,” stated Frank Adelman, president and chief executive officer of Transflo. “This new process makes the ELD purchase, order fulfillment, and activation steps easier than anybody else.”
The companies say the Transflo ELD partnership complements the EFS portfolio of compliance and reporting offerings. Clients will also have the ability to pay for monthly ELD subscription services using their existing EFS fleet cards.
“EFS and Transflo are solutions used by many joint clients,” added Scott Phillips, general manager of EFS. “Together, we identified an emerging client need then fulfilled it with these complementary technologies.”
