|Wright Express Launches Industry’s First Fuel Site Locator Mobile App with Up-to-Date Fuel Prices and Text-to-Speech Capabilities|
"Octane" saves fleets’ time and money, free on iPhone and Android
“Octane” 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
“Octane” offers users a number of additional benefits, including the ability to locate sites with alternative fuels, such as diesel, 85% ethanol fuel (E85) and compressed natural gas (CNG), and to save search criteria, making it easy to quickly perform frequent searches. In times of emergency such as adverse weather or power outages, “Octane” users are able to find the nearest site where fuel is still available by filtering results with the 24-hour transaction toggle.
The "Octane" app is available for free on both iPhone and Android mobile devices.
