Allstar Business Solutions has launched a new payment solution that covers both EV charging and refuelling with petrol, diesel or hydrogen.
Developed to support fleets making the transition to full electric or hybrid company vehicles, the Allstar One Electric card enables fleet operators to manage all fuel types on one payment card. This includes the ability to pay for EV charging across a multi-branded and fast-growing electric charging network that includes Engenie, Source London, The GeniePoint Network and ESB EV Solutions.
The new solution also draws on the benefits of the Allstar One card, including access to the UK’s largest fuel network and the ability to pay for hydrogen.
Other benefits include full visibility of spend and simplified administration thanks to one HMRC- compliant invoice for all transactions and fuel types.
The launch of the new payment solution follows Allstar’s publication of its recent study, Navigating the Alternatively Fuelled Future, which was written in response to requests from Allstar customers to help them better understand the impact, opportunities and challenges they may have when introducing alternative fuels into their fleet.
Paul Holland, MD UK Fuel at Allstar parent firm FLEETCOR, commented: “Those managing fleets that combine petrol, diesel and electric vehicles are faced with many challenges, needing to manage multiple accounts and payment methods to ensure their fleet has access to a convenient network for all its refuelling needs. On top of this, they are met by varying account structures, different pricing, separate invoicing and reporting, leading to a lot of administration that leaves fleet managers and owners without the necessary controls to run their business. With our card, we want to ensure our customers are supported with convenient payment solutions to keep their vehicles on the road.”
