Ampol has launched its new fuel card brand – AmpolCard – giving fleets access to the country’s largest petrol and convenience network of more than 1,900 sites. It replaced the well know StarCard that has been in the market since the Caltex and Ampol merger during the nineties.
During the next two years Ampol will replace over 1,000,000 cards for 70,000 customers with the new look fuel card. Both AmpolCard and StarCard will be accepted across the company’s network of Ampol and Caltex branded locations, through to 2022.
The launch of the AmpolCard brand also sees the introduction of a partnership with Woolworths, where customers can collect Everyday Rewards points, and for a limited time, new AmpolCard customers can collect an additional 10,000 points when they sign up before the end of the year.
Brad Phillips, Ampol General Manager of B2B Sales, said that Ampol is a proud supporter of local business, and that the new AmpolCard offering is designed to help Australians grow their businesses by saving money on everyday expenses and reducing administrative burden.
“Our AmpolCard offering is designed to put money back into the pockets of Australian businesses. Whether it be the new partnership with Woolworths, or the integration of accounting software programs Xero and MYOB into the myAmpol portal, we are saving Australian businesses both time and money.”
“We look forward to continuing to innovate and expand our offering as we roll out the AmpolCard brand across our network,” said Phillips.
The launch of AmpolCard represents the second time the brand has been seen in the Australian fuel card market, with Ampol first introducing it in 1993.
Today, AmpolCard’s offering also includes 24/7 support by its Australian customer service team, contactless fuel payments through its app, fuel discounts and access to savings on services and repairs through a new partnership with AutoGuru, and roadside assistance delivered through its network of local partners – part of Ampol’s commitment to partnering locally to deliver a world-class experience.
myAmpol, the online account management tool, is a central part of the offering, providing customers with real-time data and reporting as well as tools to manage their fleet, including checking transactions and replacing cards. When customers need further support, they can contact Ampol’s 24/7 customer service centre, based in Australia, who offer fast and reliable support with deep knowledge of local problems.
