Logica and FleetCor Technologies to provide managed fuel cards service for Shell
Logica, a leading business and technology service company, will serve as the prime contractor and will join FleetCor, a leading independent global provider of specialised payment products and services, to provide the technology platform and underlying business processes to run Shell's fuel card portfolio. Both firms already provide services and support to Shell.
The new system will be based on FleetCor's Global FleetNet (GFN) card processing platform, which will be run by Logica. The first pilot is due to be completed by April 2012 with the full roll-out completed by end of 2013.
Benefits will include better service and faster time to market of innovation and system enhancements.
John Rasmussen, vice president of commercial fleet at Shell, said: ‘Fuel cards are an essential element in helping to drive growth in our retail operations and we are delighted to sign this agreement with Logica / FleetCor, each of whom bring specialist and complementary skills to the partnership.
'The technology and services that underpin our cards business are critical success factors and this agreement will allow us to increase the quality of our delivery, while at the same time operating in a more efficient and integrated way. Ultimately it will enhance our ability to continue to exceed our customers' expectations.’
Logica said that the new contract plays a key role in its pursuit of global business in the oil and gas sector, leveraging core capabilities in payments, transition and managed services.
Andy Green, CEO Logica, said: ‘Winning this contract reinforces our ability to handle complex projects across countries with our clients. Logica's deep understanding of the oil and gas industry, coupled with its experience in payments and fuel cards in particular, gave us the edge in developing a compelling proposition for Shell.’
For FleetCor, the appointment extends its existing fuel card outsourcing relationships with major international oil companies.
Ron Clarke, FleetCor's chairman and CEO, added: ‘We are delighted Shell has chosen us and we will work closely with Logica to help improve the performance of the Shell fuel card portfolio. This win validates our ambition to provide the world's oil companies with a fuel card industry platform. The benefits of scale and global learnings will accrue to early adopters of the system.'
