Morrisons extends Atos contract to enhance its fuel payment services to 2019
London, 14 March 2013
Atos, an international IT services company, has today announced it has extended its fuelGenie contract with Morrisons until 2019. They will also become part of Atos’s wider network of merchants who accept payment by business account cards administered by Atos.
Atos has a proven history of increasing sales for clients through its business account card offering since 2009 and hopes to enable Morrisons to get more customers to their forecourts.
Atos will provide businesses that want to fill up at Morrisons with a fuel card that they can issue to staff members and receive a consolidated monthly bill handled through Atos.
Businesses are able to apply on-line and manage their accounts via the web. Through this web portal they can view transactions, invoices, add and remove cards, make interim payments and run Management Information reports.
Atos brings over 15 years’ experience in providing business card schemes to leading UK companies. The addition of Morrisons to their network of merchants greatly improves the offering to businesses and their employees.
Commenting on the contract extension, Mark Betts, Head of Hi-Tech Transactional Services, Atos, UK and Ireland said: “I’m delighted that Morrisons has chosen to continue and extend their fuel payment card scheme with us. We know that this can improve sales and customer loyalty by providing an efficient and easy solution to businesses and their employees. We are leaders in this market and are delighted to work with iconic UK companies such as Morrisons.”
Speaking for Morrisons, Mark Todd, Director of Fuel said: “We look forward to working with Atos on providing our customers with an enhanced service that has been designed to save them time and money. Atos gave us the perfect solution, which will make life easier for our customers and grow our business.”
The new contract will see Atos driving more volume to Morrisons through its multi-merchant business card scheme which already partners with other leading UK organisations.
This card will be rolled out to Morrisons customers from mid 2013.
