QuikQ, providers of a cardless way to purchase fuel and track the purchases, has integrated with Innovative software from TMW Systems. By utilizing asset, dispatch and driver data from the Innovative IES transportation management system, the integration with the QuikQ Fuel Purchasing System (FPS) will allow carriers to improve the overall accuracy, speed and efficiency of the fuel purchasing process, from back-office through the point-of-purchase.
“By accessing data within Innovative, we’re enabling our mutual customers to use their transportation management system to validate and authorize fuel purchases as they occur, and without having to access a third-party purchasing system and duplicate information,” said Ernie Betancourt, president of QuikQ. “By eliminating the need for separate databases, and because QuikQ uses TMW dispatch, truck, trailer and driver records, our mutual customers will now have faster and better control of what is happening at the pump.”
The new integration is available in Innovative release R2015.1 and uses the Innovative FlexFuel system to make data on fuel purchases easily accessible. Access to dispatch details and fuel purchase policies in Innovative FlexFuel enables QuikQ to provide and manage separate purchase policies in real-time for tractors, trailers and drivers. This access to live files also allows fuel purchasing transaction data to be immediately updated when a driver is added or removed from a carrier’s Innovative database.
The new integration also works with private-label versions of QuikQ FPS, and the QuikQ processor can run on a fleet’s enterprise system instead of QuikQ’s data center.
