WEX, a provider of corporate payment solutions, has expanded its DriverDash mobile app to include electric vehicle functionality to meet the growing demand for electric vehicles among commercial fleet customers. The move comes as fleet managers explore a potential transition to electric vehicles and seek a simplified and integrated payment system.
According to Jay Collins, SVP and GM of EV and Mobility at WEX, “The addition of EV functionality to our DriverDash mobile app exemplifies WEX’s expertise in simplifying and integrating business payments.”
The new EV functionality for mixed fleets replace a card on file with integrated systems and reporting, access to quality chargers, fraud controls, and level-three transaction insights. Collins said that adding EV functionality to DriverDash exemplifies WEX’s expertise in simplifying and integrating business payments.
DriverDash leverages WEX’s proprietary closed-loop payments network to increase the security of each transaction and transmit charging behavior, driver identification information, vehicle mileage, and other telematic details to the fleet manager.
The app is accepted at ChargePoint-branded EV chargers and ChargePoint’s roaming partner brands: EVConnect, EVGo, FLO, and Shell Recharge. With over 600,000 commercial fleet customers worldwide, WEX is simplifying and integrating its products and networks to accommodate ICE, EV, and mixed fleets.
DriverDash is available via Google and Apple app stores. Fleet managers can initiate charging sessions via WEX-issued physical radio frequency identification (RFID) cards, allowing access to WEX’s integrated backend reporting for both fuel types via a single portal.
