Cost saving opportunities in the fuel cards market

The adoption of various cost-optimization levers helps buyers of fuel cards market realize direct cost savings and enhance category management
and value benefits (including reduced procurement complexities). Technavio procurement experts have segmented the cost saving
opportunities in the fuel cards market into the following value-enhancement opportunities:

Adoption of technology saving aspects

Adoption of technologies such as biometric security features, EMV security, and online and mobile application account management, help authenticate cardholders by storing their details on the card, thereby reducing chances of misuse. These technologies also enable cardholders to check their balances and update account information easily. This can help realise savings up to 7% of total category spend.

Buyers prefer to engage with suppliers that provide fraud detection services with payment services by implementing strong access control measures. Secure networks help buyers reduce risks of misuse of cardholder data and other sensitive customer data.

Optimization of supplier competition saving aspects

Optimization of supply pool is critical in the global fuel cards market. Buyers prefer suppliers that can facilitate payment transactions regionally and globally. A wide coverage by suppliers provide convenience and reduces management efforts for buyers.

Facilities offered by suppliers cover refueling stations on a global or nationwide level, but certain suppliers restrict the area of operation to urban areas. Certain suppliers offer more discounts at motorway refueling stations. Therefore, it is important that buyers ensure that the area of operation and discounts offered are the best suitable for their business model.

Bundling of services saving aspects

One of the most opportunistic strategic cost saving levers in the global fuel cards market is the bundling of payment gateway with payment processing. Many suppliers have a minimum fuel usage policy that buyers need to satisfy to avail benefits offered through fuel cards. Hence, buyers should assess their fuel requirements and choose a card with the best applicable minimum fuel usage policy.
