SOUTH PORTLAND, MAINE – Wright Express will upgrade its Internet-based account management tools to give fleet managers unprecedented control over card use. Wright Express, a leading supplier of fleet cards and fleet card services, is using enhanced technology on its online product, WEXOnline, that will allow the company to send e-mail alerts to fleet managers when drivers make purchases outside parameters set by the company. Managers can now establish purchasing parameters based on eight criteria, including dollars per day, dollars per transaction, total gallons per transaction, and fuel type. In addition to new purchase alerts, Wright Express has also improved several features giving some managers access to new or easier-to-use information and enhancing the driver page. The new purchase alerts will be available online to the company's private label and co-brand partners as well as fleets using its Wright Express Universal Card. The latest changes to the online product are enabled by continued upgrades to its technological infrastructure, allowing Wright Express to collect an unprecedented amount of information at the pump and build more powerful features into its Internet-based applications. Wright Express expects to announce additional upgrades and improvements later this year.
