Partnerships fleet managers can access driver, vehicle and fuelling data in a single fuel management solution. Having all fuel information in one place also makes the reconciliation of fuel purchase and consumption data easier, helping businesses to identify any potentially fraudulent activity and reduce overall costs.

Fleetmatics Group, an Irish company founded in 2004 in Templeogue, is a leading global provider of mobile workforce solutions for service-based businesses of all sizes delivered as software-as-a-service (SaaS). Fleetmatics serves approximately 35,000 customers and approximately 709,000 subscribed vehicles worldwide.

Fleetmatics’ intuitive, cost-effective Web-based solutions provide fleet operators with visibility into vehicle location, fuel usage, speed and mileage, and other insights into their mobile workforce, enabling them to reduce operating and capital costs, as well as increase revenue.

Derek Bryan, Fleetmatics Vice President of Europe & APAC Sales said, “Through Fleetmatics REVEAL’s fuel card integration, we have been helping Topaz customers drive cost savings and reduce fuel usage for quite some time and look forward to the additional benefits that a formal relationship will bring.”

Transpoco is a well-established leader in vehicle tracking and fleet management solutions. Founded in Dublin in 2004, the company first launched a GPS tracking solution and has expanded its capability over the years by including driving style improvement, fuel efficiency and field service management. By bringing a synchronised solution to fleet management, Synx delivers a positive impact on carbon footprint, insurance premiums and on fleet profitability.

Andrew Fleury, CEO of Transpoco: “At Transpoco, we have made fuel consumption one of our top priorities and invested heavily in the technology to integrate fuel card data. There has been a gap in market for fleets that want to account for every litre of fuel purchased, with SynX, we deliver this level of visibility. We have the most comprehensive fuel reports and improvement programs in the market. We will work closely with Topaz to ensure our joint customers are getting the best return from their fuel spend”.

Speaking at the launch Liam Mulcahy, Topaz Commercial Director said, “We believe that these partnerships will help our fuel card customers manage their vehicles more efficiently and at lower cost. It sits perfectly with our Topaz Quality Fuels which contains an additive that increases fuel economy and reduces emissions. Partnerships like this build long term customer relationships and allow us to offer increased value to our fuel card customers”.
