It is distinguished by a convenient personal account through which the company's customers can monitor fuel consumption and manage limits and expenses for each vehicle online.
It is possible to conclude a contract and receive fuel cards at any branch of the company: in Kazan, Naberezhnye Chelny, Nizhnekamsk, Bugulma, Nurlat, Buinsk, Shemordan and Tolyatti.
After the conclusion of the contract, each client opens their own personal account, and the required number of fuel cards is issued. In the personal account online, one can get all the necessary information: how many available funds are on the total balance of the client and on each card separately. Here, in the personal account, a full report is provided on which filling stations, in what volume, what type of fuel, at what time and date the driver refuells. All information is updated in real time, which allows the client to more fully control the organisation's fuel costs.
“It is available to customers to independently set fuel consumption limits for each card, for example, to set a consumption limit for a day, week or month, or to include only certain gas stations, or certain products for refuelling," Timur Saifutdinov notes.
Reliable control over the expenditure of funds
Another advantage of the service is the convenience of accounting. All operations for crediting and debiting money are transparent, so there is no need to give drivers cash and collect checks.

This will allow customers to abandon physical plastic cards and refuel vehicles through the application using a virtual card contactless," continues Timur Sayfutdinov, the head of the department for the sale of petroleum products to legal entities of the company.
