AMPOL PARTNERS WITH AUTOGURU

AutoGuru to manage Australia’s largest fuel card service and repair program

AutoGuru has partnered with Ampol to help thousands of Auto Repairers process fleet work via AmpolCard.
Ampol says its AmpolCard, which will be replacing StarCard over the next two years, is known for giving Australian businesses access to the country’s largest petrol and convenience network of more than 1,900 sites. The cards also provide access to exclusive savings through partnerships with local companies.
There are currently over one million StarCard holders in Australia, which will become AmpolCard holders once the transition is complete.
This new partnership with AutoGuru, which says it is Australia’s number one booking site for automotive servicing and repairs, expands the AmpolCard service and repair network to 5,000 auto repairers with hundreds of workshops continuing to sign up.
“We are super excited about this partnership,” AutoGuru Chief Executive Officer, Eden Shirley, said.
“Ampol is an iconic Australian brand and a market leader in 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.”
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.
Of the 5,000 repairers already signed up, roughly 40 percent are OEM Dealers and 60 percent are aftermarket with half of these being independent. Authorised AmpolCard holders simply show their AmpolCard or StarCard at any approved repairer to access a fleet discount.
“This partnership aligns with our mission to enable auto repairers to transact seamlessly with customers online,” Eden 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.
“Built leveraging AutoGuru’s dynamic quoting technology, 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 percent of maintenance pre-auth processes to deliver faster approvals and payment for auto service providers.”
AutoGuru says it continues to be at the forefront of digital innovation, most recently claiming its third successive inclusion in the Australian Financial Review’s BOSS Most Innovative Companies Awards.
Any auto service provider that is interested in processing AmpolCard fleet bookings can do so without becoming a member of AutoGuru.
