Gold Coast, 09 November 2020
Ampol has partnered with AutoGuru, Australia’s leading booking site for automotive servicing and repairs, to help tens of thousands of Australian businesses access fleet discounts via AmpolCard.
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. They also provide access to exclusive savings through partnerships with local companies.
The partnership with AutoGuru expands AmpolCard’s service and repair network to 5,000 auto repairers with hundreds of workshops continuing to sign up.
Eden Shirley, AutoGuru’s CEO said “We are super excited about this partnership. Ampol is an iconic Australian brand and a market leader in fuel cards, and we are pleased to help Australian businesses access fleet discounts at the majority of Australia’s best known automotive servicing and tyre brands.”
Authorised AmpolCard holders simply need to show their AmpolCard or StarCard at any approved OEM Dealerships, major groups like Bridgestone Select, Bob Jane T-Marts, Beaurepaires, Goodyear Autocare, Dunlop Super Dealers and Ultra Tune as well as independent repairers which can be found by visiting Ampol.com.au.
When an AmpolCard holder shows their card to an approved repairer, the Service Manager knows they must seek preapproval from AmpolCard’s Maintenance Authorisation Team which AutoGuru now manages. This team of Fleet Controllers ensures that all quotes adhere to pre-negotiated fleet rates and manufacturers recommendations with no unnecessary additives and inclusions added.
“Fleet controllers are commonly used by large fleet management organisations and corporate fleets to monitor fleet work and tightly manage costs, and the fact that AmpolCard provides this level of service gives business owners peace of mind knowing they’re getting everything they should be, with no nasty surprises,” Says Shirley.
“Customers aren’t just limited to mechanical related services either,” continues Shirley. “They can pay for a wide range of auto services including windscreens, batteries and tyres, all with their AmpolCard and all receiving the same level of support.”
All of these benefits are included in the first phase of the Ampol and AutoGuru partnership, which is all about making the benefits of AmpolCard fleet servicing and repairs more accessible to auto repairers and fleet customers.
The second phase of the partnership will integrate AmpolCard as a payment option into AutoGuru.com.au, so cardholders can instantly book servicing and repairs online at their convenience.
AutoGuru continues to be at the forefront of digital innovation, most recently claiming its third successive Australian Financial Review’s BOSS Most Innovative Companies Award for their recent expansion of mobility services in 2020.
“COVID has accelerated the uptake of online commerce and digital payments and every company and brand is now adapting to a digitally-led future,” says Shirley. “It makes complete sense that Australia’s largest fuel card has partnered with the leading automotive servicing and repairs booking site to deliver more value for its members.”
