How can Cambrian help my Facilities Management Business?
As a facilities management company, one of the most important aspects of your business is ensuring seamless operations.
Whether you are managing manufacturing and industrial buildings, office buildings, retail centres, parks, hospitals or hotels, running a smooth operation is paramount to your success.
This is why it is so important to manage and monitor the fuel consumption of company vehicles, and help to make your mobile operatives lives easier as they travel to and from sites.
How can Fuel Cards help?
Fuel cards are an essential business utility, and put all of your refuelling costs under one account with us to make it easier for you to save you time and money.
They allow businesses to purchase fuel at a wholesale related price. This is often cheaper than pump prices.
As a fuel card customer, you’ll save a lot of time with administration. A fuel card negates the need to collect receipts and fill in claim forms, which in turns makes tax returns easier for you.
With Cambrian Fuelcard Services, you’ll receive a weekly invoice with fortnightly payment terms.
This is excellent for cash flow which in terms helps you to manage your business more efficiently and effectively.
Many of our cards are multi-network which allow your business to utilize a range of stations, included branded, supermarket and independents.
At many of the branded sites, you’ll get well-lit forecourts, with quality food and drink outlets, clean toilets and free WiFi.
Drivers can also benefit from the loyalty reward points schemes available. This includes Shell GO+, Nectar and Tesco Clubcard points.
As a fuel card customer, you’ll get access to our 24/7 online account portal which gives you greater control over your fuel expenditure.
It allows you to view and download all of your historic transaction data, produce VAT compliant reports and order new cards with ease.
Through the free portal, you can access the most fuel-efficient routes.
All of our cards are PIN protected. When the cards are set up, they can be linked to an indivdual driver or a vehicle.
Fuel cards negate the use of cash, which puts your driver at less risk when they are driving to sites.
Why are Fuel Cards a better option over credit cards?
There are several reasons as to why fuel cards are a better choice than credit cards for your business.
- With credit cards, you pay pump price
- It is easier to identify fraudulent spending
- Fuel cards offer restrictions on purchases
- Fuel card purchases are interest-free
- Credit card purchases still require you to collect receipts
- Varying APR on credit card purchases
