  • 3. Product Updates and New Features New Fuel Card/Fuel Capacity Reporting Capability Now you can specify how big your fuel tanks are for each vehicle, and be alerted whenever more than that amount of fuel is pumped using that vehicle’s Wright Express Fuel Card. You can also check to see when a vehicle’s card is used for non-fuel purchases, or when it’s used and the vehicle isn’t actually present. This is a great report for validating your drivers’ use of your fuel cards, and to make sure they aren’t taking advantage of them. Additionally, it is a useful report to summarize your fuel purchases across your fleet.

While there are several large fleets using the EOBR solution with full compliance, we are integrating the product into our overall GPS Insight fleet tracking application, and will be looking for beta customers in the upcoming months. Please let us know if you are interested in participating in this beta program or full production once we are ready to release it to the public in late Q2 2012.
