Comdata Corp. announced the continued expansion of its cardless fuel solution. These transactions can now process through itsSmart Solutions point-of-sale platform.
The Davis Travel Center in Stony Creek, Va. is processing cardless transactions and was the first to do so using Comdatas Smart Solutions. This location is one of two Davis Travel Center sites to implement the SmartQ cardless fueling technology with the Smart Solutions POS.
Smart Solutions is a consolidated POS platform designed to manage all profit centers. With this new capability, it also provides a way for convenience store and truck stop locations to easily offer cardless fueling to support their fleet customers.
The Comdata cardless solution, which began processing live transactions in August, automates the fueling process and data entry requirements with the use of a cost-effective RFID tag. This benefits both the fleet and the merchant by reducing the risk of fraudulent transactions, automatically shutting off the pump when the truck pulls away.
In addition to the network of independent merchants that are installing the SmartQ cardless fueling technology, Loves Travel Stopsis near completion of enabling more than 235 travel stops to accept cardless transactions.TravelCenters of America is also in the process of equipping their locations to accept cardless transactions.
Fleetcor Technologies, Inc. will test blockchain technology as a way to modernize payments for its commercial fleet clients, especially across international borders, as part of a new initiative with Ripple, which has expertise in the technology, according to the company.
