Ampol and Autoguru team up on fuel card program

Ampol and automotive servicing and repairs booking site AutoGuru have announced a partnership that will, the companies say, help thousands of auto repairers process fleet work via AmpolCard, while also offering fleets an extended network of service and auto repairers.

AmpolCard, which will replace StarCard over the next two years, currently gives Australian businesses access to more than 1900 petrol and convenience sites. The partnership with AutoGuru will expand the AmpolCard service and repair network to 5,000 auto repairers with hundreds of workshops continuing to sign up.

The first phase of the partnership enables approved service providers to submit Ampol fleet work for authorisation online via AutoGuru’s Workshop Portal, or call Ampol’s maintenance approval phone line which AutoGuru now manages.

The second phase of the partnership will integrate AmpolCard as a payment option into AutoGuru so card holders Can book servicing and repairs online at their convenience.

The AmpolCard partnership will, said AutoGuru CEO Eden Shirley, enable repairers to be paid quicker and make the transaction process simple and swift.

“This partnership aligns with our mission to enable auto repairers to transact seamlessly with customers online,” he said. “What we’ve built for Ampol is an industry first that enables workshops to submit fleet work online and get authorised and paid faster.

“Our new fleet software utilises manufacturer repair times and OEM and aftermarket parts pricing to deliver a data-driven method of quoting and authorising fleet work online. My goal within six months is to automate 60 per cent of maintenance pre-auth processes to deliver faster approvals and payment for auto service providers.”

Of the 5,000 repairers already signed up, AutoGuru says that roughly 40 per cent are OEM Dealers and 60 per cent are aftermarket, with half of these being independent.

“Ampol is an iconic Australian brand and a market leader in the fuel cards, and we are so pleased to support our workshops to process AmpolCard fleet work along with some of Australia’s best-known automotive brands,” said Mr Shirley.

Any auto service provider that is interested in processing AmpolCard fleet bookings can do so without becoming a member of AutoGuru.
