A new mobile app for iPhone and Android-based mobile devices is said to locate fuel sites with up-to-date transaction-based fuel prices.
The Octane app, from Wright Express, also includes text-to-speech capabilities. The app accesses the most currently available date- and time-stamped transaction data to allow users to quickly find the nearest fueling locations and the lowest fuel prices. Additionally, it integrates text-to-speech technology for hands-free operation so the user can maintain a focus on driving while listening to audio directions to their selected fueling site.
“We understand fleets need drivers to arrive at fuel sites safely and as quickly as possible, and they are also looking for ways to save money by better managing fuel costs and consumption,” said David D. Maxsimic, executive vice president of sales and marketing. “Our new mobile app, Octane, is the first of its kind and designed to meet these needs, underscoring our commitment to providing customers with the best possible fleet management tools.”
Octane also identifies sites with alternative fuels such as E85 and compressed natural gas.
