Fuelman Partners with CarAdvise to Serve SMB Fleets with Digital Fleet Maintenance Capabilities

By The Associated Press

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 23, 2021--

, a FLEETCOR company and world leader in payment innovation, announced today a strategic partnership with , America’s top digital vehicle maintenance and repair marketplace. The partnership combines Fuelman’s managed fuel programs with CarAdvise’s vehicle maintenance SaaS platform to improve business outcomes for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with fleets. The partnership will reduce the cost and complexity of fleet maintenance by enhancing price transparency with a seamless, digital car care experience that unlocks national large fleet discounts for fleets of all sizes.

Fuel and vehicle maintenance are two of the largest operational expenses for SMB owners managing fleets. The integration of Fuelman and CarAdvise will give fleet owners a single point of access for tracking, scheduling, and paying for vehicle maintenance procedures from regular services, such as oil changes, tire rotations, fuel expenses, and filter changes, to any of CarAdvise’s over 3,000 more complex services offered.

“Small businesses typically lack dedicated resources to track, manage and prioritize preventative vehicle maintenance and costly repairs that larger companies can afford. As a result, businesses are forced to repurpose time that is better spent managing and growing their core business, overpay for maintenance, or worse, have vehicles taken offline by preventable maintenance issues,” said Fuelman Senior Vice President, Keagan Russo. “This partnership automates the most necessary and time-consuming tasks that small business owners face while keeping them focused on building and leading their companies with digitized solutions that are cost time-efficient.”

As the growing demand for digitized services for drivers, fleet owners, and business owners increase, Fuelman and CarAdvise make it easier to browse services, compare repair shops, and schedule appointments all from the convenience of their digital devices. Additional benefits include:

“Partnering with Fuelman allows us to better serve the SMB customer base,” said Greg Tepas, Founder and CEO of CarAdvise. “Our companies are aligned in our commitment to empowering small business owners by providing necessary resources to make better-informed business decisions that instill confidence and positively impact their bottom lines. Fleets haven’t had a marketplace like this available to them in the past and with our technology we’ve made managing fleet maintenance more cost effective, more convenient and more cost effective for fleets especially those that don’t have a dedicated full-time fleet manager.”

Cardmembers will be able to access these benefits by January of 2022. As part of the partnership, FLEETCOR is investing $5MM to help CarAdvise accelerate its strong record of year-over-year growth. “CarAdvise fits in perfectly with FLEETCOR’s mission of simplifying the way that businesses manage and pay their expenses,” said Russo. “As we move further into a world where connected vehicles are not just a reality, but the norm, this partnership positions us to lead the way with fleet-centric innovation that connects data to actionable insights to time and cost-saving solutions for our customers.”
