eFueling Teams With QuikQ to Deliver Automated, Cardless Fleet Fueling

May 1, 2012 – Austin, TX eFueling Technologies (www.efueling.com), a leading innovator of automated fleet fueling software and transaction processing equipment for automated unattended fueling, today announced a strategic alliance with truck stop fuel transaction processing pioneer QuikQ (www.QuikQ.com). The agreement introduces eFueling to the 54 billion gallon per year truck stop market, and expands QuikQ’s product line to serve unattended terminal business opportunities. Terms of the arrangement are confidential. 

eFueling has leveraged a long-history serving the fleet fueling industry to develop an innovative 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. These benefits combine to make fleet fueling operations faster and easier for users and more profitable for operators. 

QuikQ technology allows a carrier to directly interface its enterprise software solution to a truck stop fuel vendor's point-of-sale system, eliminating the need for expensive fleet fuel cards and third-party billing, introducing a host of cost-saving efficiencies between the carrier and truck stop.

The firms are working together to serve both truck stop 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 truck stop market,” said 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," said 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."
