Avonline saves time & money after switching to fuelGenie

The company offers a range of business facilities, from broadband and network services to commercial flooring and energy installations for business and homes, and switched from using multiple fuel cards to a simple centralised system with fuelGenie to manage efficiently the fuel expenses of its 70-strong fleet.

Avonline has also found that it is saving money on its fuel bill since the switch by ensuring its drivers only fill up at supermarket forecourts compared to the more expensive motorway filling stations.

The ease of ordering new cards free of charge for engineers and the online customer portal, which is accessible 24/7 for fuel data reporting, were also key benefits for the company to change to fuelGenie.

Alan Thatcher, fleet & facilities manager, Avonline PLC, commented: “We switched to fuelGenie for two reasons: cost and convenience. We receive a single monthly invoice for all fuel consumption and don’t have the added hassle of monthly fees on top. Plus, the convenience and cost efficiencies of supermarkets to fill up keep costs much lower.

“Our drivers are also happy to use the fuelGenie card as they can always find a supermarket filling station in any town, and now have even greater choice and flexibility due to the recent introduction of Sainsbury’s to the fuelGenie network. Plus, our engineers benefit by using their supermarket loyalty cards at the same time.”

Thatcher added: “I’ve found that since we switched to fuelGenie I can access our fuel data very easily online through the customer portal. Through this regular analysis I can access mileage reports, track fuel spend and analyse company fuel wastage. I can also monitor a vehicle’s performance based on fuel consumption, which is handy information for when it comes to renewing vehicles.”
