Mobitel's 'ONE' Fuel Card Solution at LAUGFS sheds islandwide
Mobitel tied up with LAUGFS Holdings recently in an initiative to introduce an efficient Near Field Communication (NFC)-based ‘ONE’ fuel card solution that could be utilised at all LAUGFS filling stations islandwide.
The ‘ONE’ fuel card is a direct replacement for the manual fuel books and receipts, and comes with a unique transaction administration platform which allows corporate customers to view all the fuel transactions and settlement information in real-time. The inherent features of NFC technology permits transactions to take place in a secure, fast and efficient manner to bring greater control and convenience for card users and administrators.
The system is guaranteed to be transparent and effective as it allows monitoring fuel quotas of individuals and corporates alike with the facility to view every transaction online with detailed information such as date, time, location, vehicle number, quantity and the type of fuel pumped from each transaction. The system would efficiently contribute towards preventing malpractices which may occur through a traditional chit-based fuel management system. Visibility and transparency on fuel administration would mean that business owners and fleet managers could monitor and control fuel expenses more closely.
With a highly diverse portfolio of businesses and a substantial stake in the power and energy industries, LAUGFS Holdings has now ventured into rich business territories including leisure and financial services with an investment of 2.5 billion for its first five star hotel, Anantaya Resorts & Spa, Chilaw.
Meanwhile, being a pioneer in technologically sophisticated solutions, Mobitel earned its status as an expert NFC based technology provider through an array of popular NFC based products and services built and delivered entirely by an internal team of experts. Mobitel is the only Mobile telecommunications company in Sri Lanka to have a fully fledged in-house NFC development center providing end-to end services under one roof. The ONE fuel card management solution is one of the many business solutions provided by Mobitel.
Mobitel’s superior quality Identification and Access Control System, Loyalty Card System, Multi-point payment system, Visitor Management System and Parking Management are also secured through NFC technology.
