BRENTWOOD, Tenn. — Comdata Corp. is continuing to expand its cardless fuel solution. These transactions can now process through its Smart Solutions point-of-sale (POS) platform.
The Davis Travel Center in Stony Creek, Va. is processing cardless transactions and was the first to do so using Comdata’s 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 2012, 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, Love’s Travel Stops is near completion of enabling more than 235 travel stops to accept cardless transactions. Travel Centers of America (TA) is also in the process of equipping their locations to accept cardless transactions.
“Comdata strives to continually bring innovation to the transportation industry,” said Steve Stevenson, president of Comdata. “This expansion in our cardless fueling capabilities is the next step in delivering solutions that can make the fuel transaction easier, faster and more secure for both merchants and fleets.”
Comdata Corp. is a leading business-to-business provider of innovative electronic payment solutions. As an issuer and a processor, the company provides fleet, corporate payment, virtual card, and prepaid solutions to over 25,000 customers, enabling more than $31 billion in transactions annually. Comdata captures and reports detailed transaction data, giving customers unprecedented control over their expenses.
In 2012, Comdata joined forces with Stored Value Solutions (SVS) to offer an expanded suite of prepaid gift card and loyalty solutions. Annually, the combined company enables $42 billion in payments volume and produces 580 million cards.
Founded in 1969 and headquartered in Brentwood, Tennessee with more than 1,200 employees in the United States and Canada, Comdata and SVS are wholly-owned subsidiaries of Ceridian Corp. www.comdata.com
