WEX Evolves Fuel Payments from Plastic to Phone

WEX
Inc., a leading provider of innovative corporate payment solutions,
today announced the launch of DriverDash, a simple, easy-to-use
alternative to plastic for added security.

DriverDash lets fleet drivers authorize a fuel transaction from inside
their vehicles to create a seamless and secure transaction via mobile
device.

WEX Vice President of Product, Peggy Watson said, “DriverDash is the
next evolution in fuel cards: powerful, fast, simple and convenient.
We’re thrilled to continue to use our innovative technology to provide
customers with modern, safe, seamless ways to pay for their fuel and
capture their data.”

DriverDash borrows heavily from the long WEX tradition of using
proprietary technology in close consultation with customers to develop
products that make the daily operations of their job easier.

“Drivers will get a faster, easier, intuitive payment experience,” she
said. “Businesses will see less downtime for fueling and enhanced
transaction security. DriverDash uses thumbprint or facial recognition
to authorize and document the transaction and drivers can only utilize
the app upon receiving an invite from the fleet manager.”

The DriverDash program is currently available at more than 11,000 Exxon
and Mobil-branded service stations across the continental U.S. and WEX
is actively expanding the network among its accepting merchants.

“We are excited to partner with WEX in accepting the DriverDash mobile
payment app, for use with our proprietary ExxonMobil fleet cards,” said
Miguel Castillo, Americas Payments Marketing Manager, ExxonMobil Fuels
and Lubricants. “This is a great addition to our fleet card benefits,
and we look forward to continuously innovating with WEX to meet the
evolving needs of our customers.”

“We live in a mobile age in which we use our phones for just about
everything,” Watson said. “So as we continue to look at ways to better
serve our customers, it only made sense to bring our traditional
payments platform to mobile devices.”
