FRANKLIN, Tenn.   QuikQ, the provider of a cardless direct fuel connection between truck stop point-of-sale (POS) and motor carrier enterprise systems, Wednesday announced the availability of its new Fuel Island Manager software.

Fuel Island Manager streamlines fueling for drivers by detecting and validating the position of a truck in the fueling lane and turning on dispensers without magnetic stripe cards and with little or no driver input, according to Ernie Betancourt, company president.

In addition, if the truck leaves the lane, the dispenser is sent a signal to stop fueling, virtually eliminating the possibility of fraud at the dispenser, he said.

“Fuel Island Manager provides a mechanism where truck stops can develop and enhance relationships with fleets that go beyond a price per gallon offering,” Betancourt said. “It is beneficial to fleets because it offers truck stops 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.”

Originally designed to support QuikQ’s technologically advanced DFConnect solution, which provides a direct connection between motor carriers and a truck stop POS, Fuel Island Manager software and lane positioning RFID hardware authorizes fueling for a truck or reefer wirelessly. The solution has now been enhanced to provide support for other transactions at the fuel island, including sales for fuel card providers, allowing them to convert to cardless transactions at participating truck stops.

“By enhancing the experience a driver has at a truck stop fuel island and easing the processing of fueling transactions for both the truck stop and the fleet, the combination of Fuel Island Manager and DFConnect promotes a more beneficial partnership between truck stops and carriers. In addition, Fuel Island Manager software can provide dispenser fraud prevention to other transaction providers,” Betancourt said. 

QuikQ is a privately held software development company dedicated to utilizing 21st century technologies to improve the trucking industry's control of diesel fuel transactions by connecting carriers with truck stops and travel plazas.
