NORCROSS, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FleetCor Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: FLT), a leading global provider of fuel cards and workforce payment products to businesses, today announced the successful implementation of its Global FleetNet (GFN) fuel card processing system for Shell in the Philippines.
Shell selected FleetCor’s GFN platform as its global standard to be implemented in up to 35 Shell markets in Asia and Europe during 2013/14. This initial implementation is part of a 10-year contract with Shell that FleetCor has, in partnership with CGI - one of the leading independent information technology and business process services firms in the world. Future plans include the further deployment of GFN in seven additional Shell Asia markets and 27 European territories during 2013/2014.
“The successful GFN deployment in the Philippines in conjunction with CGI is quite meaningful. It confirms that our GFN system is fully capable of operating at the heart of a total platform solution that can meet the needs of large multi-national, multi-currency clients,” said Ron Clarke, FleetCor Chairman and CEO. “We further expect that this initial implementation will attract additional outsourcing business to the FleetCor and CGI service from around the world, which in turn gives FleetCor the ability to build deeper relationships with and value for those partners in the fuel card space.”
FleetCor began developing GFN in 2008 and has invested significantly to bring the platform to market.
