QuikQ has adapted its Fuel Island Manager software to provide a quicker and more secure way for drivers to fuel their trucks. QuikQ provides cardless direct fuel connections between truckstop point-of-sale (POS) and trucks, including its DFConnect solution.
Fuel Island Manager was originally designed to support DFConnect, although the company is now making it available separately.
“Fuel Island Manager provides a mechanism where truckstops can develop and enhance relationships with fleets that go beyond a price-per-gallon offering,” said Ernie Betancourt, president. “It is beneficial to fleets because it offers truckstops the ability to provide added security while moving drivers out of the fuel island quickly. That also improves the driver’s experience in the fuel lane and leads to greater satisfaction.”
The software streamlines fueling for drivers by detecting and validating the position of a truck in the fueling lane and turning on dispensers without driver input, the company said. If the truck leaves the lane, the software notifies the dispenser to stop the fueling process, eliminating the possibility of fraud at the dispenser.
The system utilizes the software in combination with lane positioning RFID hardware. It can also provide support for other transactions such as sales for fuel-card providers.
“By enhancing the experience a driver has at a truckstop fuel island and easing the processing of fueling transactions for both the truckstop and the fleet,” Betancourt said. “The combination of Fuel Island Manager and DFConnect promotes a more beneficial partnership between truckstops and carriers. In addition, Fuel Island Manager software can provide dispenser fraud prevention to other transaction providers.”
