ARI First to Use Wright Express Portal Integration

SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine, March 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Automotive Resources International (ARI), a leading global fleet solutions provider specializing in complex car and truck fleets, has become the first Wright Express cobranded partner to use Wright Express' portal integration. Wright Express Corporation (NYSE: WXS), a leading provider of payment processing and information management services to the U.S. commercial and government vehicle fleet industry developed real-time driver ID management capability to enhance response time and internal reporting capabilities for users of its co-branded fuel cards.

The portal integration technology provides ARI customers with seamless access to ARI's site, which leverages Wright Express' technology infrastructure. The portal enhances the ability of fleet managers to manage accounts in real time. ARI released an industry first, real-time driver ID management capability for their co-branded ARI/Wright Express fuel cards. ARI customers can now manage driver IDs in real-time through ARI's award winning Access System and the information will flow straight through to Wright Express' system. This enables a fleet manager to help a driver who could be at a pump without an active driver ID and also allows the manager to turn driver IDs off immediately, which helps to minimize exposure in the event of termination or compromised driver IDs.

"Wright Express has made a significant investment in its online tools capabilities, and we believe they are best in class in terms of how they empower and help fleets manage and customize their fleet program," said Michael Dubyak, President and Chief Executive Officer of Wright Express. "We give great credit to ARI for having the vision to recognize how the Wright Express/ARI CoBrand fleet card can employ the power of our online functionality to help them provide their fleets with tools to more effectively manage their fuel purchases."
