Fleet FAQ? Fuel Management

Q. Is fraud control improving with the newest generation of fleet cards?

A. Fraud control is a partnership between industry and suppliers like WEX who want to make it easier to control all costs, including unauthorized ones. It can be time consuming to keep track of cash, reimburse drivers or hand over your credit card to employees – it’s dangerous. Why manually reconcile receipts, comb through spreadsheets or restrict your payment methods to control your spend? Fleet managers can demand a higher level of authentication and the ability to set tighter controls and enjoy more accurate data of their fuel usage. Fleet cards are getting much better at detecting fraud, but it still requires an attentive fleet manager to be on the lookout for what the data is telling them. We’re also continuing to develop the technology that makes payments more secure, including methods that go “beyond plastic” such as WEX DriverDash, a skim-free mobile payment platform that allows drivers to make secure purchases from inside their vehicles.
