What are WEX and Fleetcor fuel cards and how do they integrate with Whip Around’s fuel tracking module?

WEX and Fleetcor fuel cards are a popular option for fleet managers looking to simplify fuel expenses and gain better control over their fuel costs. Both providers offer a range of fuel card options that provide discounts on fuel purchases, detailed reporting on fuel consumption and costs, and integration with fuel tracking and management tools like Whip Around.

So, how do these fuel cards integrate with Whip Around’s fuel tracking module? Let’s take a closer look.

What should I know about WEX and Fleetcor fuel cards?

A WEX fuel card is a payment solution designed specifically for businesses with fleets of vehicles — used to manage fuel-related expenses and streamline the purchasing process for fuel and other vehicle-related services.

WEX fuel cards function similarly to credit or debit cards but are specifically tailored for fleet management purposes. They are accepted at authorized fuel stations and certain service locations, allowing fleet managers to monitor and control fuel expenditures. These cards provide a convenient way to pay for fuel, track fuel consumption, and generate detailed reports for expense management and analysis.

Similarly, FLEETCOR® is a global business payments company and leading provider of fuel cards in North America. Their brands include Fuelman®, Comdata®, and many well-known oil and gas cards. The FLEETCOR portfolio of brands helps companies automate, secure, digitize and control payments. FLEETCOR serves businesses, partners, and merchants in North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia Pacific.

Each WEX and Fleetcor fuel card option has its own unique set of features and benefits, and fleet managers should carefully consider their specific needs and requirements when choosing a WEX fuel card. By selecting the right fuel card and integrating it with fuel tracking and management tools like Whip Around, fleet managers can gain better control over their fuel costs, improve their fleet’s efficiency and reduce overall expenses.
