Fleet FAQ? Fuel Management

Q. Are mobile apps for fleet management a one-to-one substitute for desktop applications?

A. Many are. Because of the vast increase in computing power, we now carry in our pockets the ability to do almost everything our old desktop computers did, with fewer exceptions every day. You wouldn’t want to render an Excel spreadsheet on your phone, for example, but our ClearView app makes that same data look readable in charts and graphs. You probably wouldn’t want an entire exception report texted to you, but we can send you an automatic email alert and ping your phone when a driver is caught doing something you don’t want them to do. And while a penny or two doesn’t seem like a lot, we have apps that make it easier to find the lowest-price fueling station without consulting a map or a long list, and without missing that savings opportunity. Is there something you now do only on your desktop that you wish you could do in the field? Chances are we are working on it at WEX. Mobility is everything for companies with vehicles, so our products have to be able to be used anywhere. Fleet SmartHub and Fleet DriverDash are two such mobile products that help fleets manage their workflow whether in or out of the office. DriverDash was developed in concert with some of the largest oil brands in the world, so we believe that product will have a very long lifecycle and some of the best functionality in the mobile fuel payments space. SmartHub basically lets the fleet manager take everything off his or her desktop and into the field.
