Business need
To help clients reduce fleet fueling costs, Comdata recognized the need to give truck drivers instant access to location-aware advice on the optimal fuel and rest locations along their routes.

Comdata worked with IBM Business Partner, PointSource, to build a location-aware mobile app in just twelve weeks. The solution uses IBM® Cloudant® Dedicated Cluster database-as-a-service, hosted on SoftLayer®.

The new app enables drivers to choose the best fueling locations and other discounts in real time, based on optimal routes, timing, prices and user preferences, helping to reduce fleet operating costs.
