All they want is the opportunity to do their job and not be hamstringed by costs that are out of control.
Bonita Springs, FL (PRWEB) May 16, 2008
Fleet business fuel card company, CSI Enterprises, Inc., reported today a significant increase in businesses pursuing their CSI Universal Fleet Fuel Card. Rising fuel prices are demanding fleet managers to optimize spending procedures, and the CSI Universal Fleet Fuel Card is a proven savings tool, with features that help businesses save as much as 15% or more.
"When we talk with fleet managers and business owners every day, we realize how fuel prices are overwhelming their business," said Keith Stone, CSI Enterprises President. "All they want is the opportunity to do their job and not be hamstringed by costs that are out of control."
Control is exactly what the CSI Universal Fleet Fuel Card offers, card control.
"Research has shown that the greatest loss for fleet businesses is slippage," explained Stone. "Unauthorized spending by drivers in the field costs companies an average of 10 percent of their fuel expenses. That is why we have incorporated such sophisticated, but user-friendly, card controls."
CSI offers fleet managers and business owners online card controls in the form of online, real-time, monitoring and management resources. From knowing exactly who is spending what, when and where, to changing limits and restrictions, and even authorizing one-time purchases for emergencies, all in real-time, managers and owners can considerably reduce, if not eliminate, all slippage.
"But slippage is just part of our savings strategy," said Stone. "We also have developed many other saving mechanisms that are effective and very easy to employ."
The first of these additional savings opportunities comes at the pump, and brings results every day in the form of discounts at tens of thousands stations across the country. Equally important is access to a number of the leading online fuel saving networks, identifying the best prices available in any given area or route.
Next is simply eliminating the need to process receipts. Experts estimate the cost to process a fuel receipt minimally at fifty cents per receipt. Even this small expense adds up significantly over the course of a year. A business with twenty drivers filling up twice a week will save more than $1,000.
Finally, the CSI Universal Fleet Fuel Card consolidates reports, invoices, and check processing down to one. The time and expense spent reviewing and processing multiple reports and invoices as well as cutting and authorizing checks has been estimated to cost more than $35 per check. A company with two, three or more accounts quickly amass hidden expenses that need to be eliminated, and are eliminated when using the CSI Universal Fleet Fuel Card.
"It is our job to make sure no savings opportunity goes unrealized," said Stone. "Although we believe we have the best features on the market, we continue to search for new ways to help our clients save, and that includes utilizing the latest technologies available. CSI has many new projects being developed that will continue to elevate our CSI Universal Fleet Fuel Card to unprecedented levels which we will be announcing over the coming months."
