Payment service integrated with point of sale systems at Pilot Flying J and Love’s
TAMPA, Fla., January 10, 2018 – Transflo, a leader in enterprise mobility, telematics, and business process automation for the transportation industry, today unveiled a new telematics prepay option through epay North America, a global prepaid product distributor and technology service provider. epay North America is a division of Euronet Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: EEFT).
Commercial drivers can now use cash to prepay monthly Transflo electronic logging subscriptions in travel stops. The program allows heavy-duty commercial drivers to purchase a Transflo ELD T7 device then prepay three months of monthly subscription service. Use of electronic logs, in contrast to paper-based logs, is a new government requirement that went effect on December 18, 2017.
Through the epay service, upon payment, drivers receive a receipt with a PIN code that is entered in the Transflo electronic logging app to begin or continue service. The addition of Transflo enhances the epay content portfolio, which includes prepaid mobile top-up, prepaid debit cards, gift cards, digital music and other products and services.
“Thousands of commercial drivers regularly make cash payments in travel centers and truck stops,” shared Frank Adelman, President and Chief Executive Officer at Transflo. “This solution benefits customers who prefer to use cash instead of credit cards. It’s a great option for them, and we’ve not only created an innovative product but also an innovative service and support option.”
A leader in electronic payment services and prepaid product processing, epay has integrated Transflo’s electronic logging subscription into the point of sale systems at Pilot Flying J and Love’s travel stops. Drivers can renew Transflo ELD subscriptions and other prepaid services throughout this network of stores.
“Adding prepaid replenishment for electronic logging to our content portfolio provides a needed service for both professional drivers and truck stop retailers,” added Bryan Zingg, President of epay North America. “We’re strengthening our distribution network and ensuring that drivers, particularly owner-operators, have access to the convenience they need to stay compliant with the government’s new electronic logging rules.”
Clients using the Transflo ELD T7 have access to a wide range of electronic logging and telematics capabilities. This includes detailed vehicle diagnostics and fleet productivity metrics that replace legacy in-cab solutions with next-generation, mobile-based technology. The new cash payment option through epay for standard ELD services is immediately available.
