Wright Express Introduces Online Mapping, Retools Website

SOUTH PORTLAND, MAINE (December 13, 2002) - Wright Express has added mapping capabilities to WEXOnline as part of the company's ongoing efforts to ensure its online application remains the industry's leading Internet-based account management tool.

The new Fuel Price Mapping feature allows users to not only search for stations based on fuel price, zip code, route or city, but also view or print a detailed map that highlights directions to stations.

Wright Express has also revamped the application's graphical user interface and grouped links to all features in an easy-to-use toolbar at the top of every page. The new toolbar allows users to access key features more quickly by requiring fewer clicks and keystrokes.

"Our steadfast goal at Wright Express is to remain the most innovative force in the marketplace," said Michael Dubyak, president of Wright Express. "WEXOnline has consistently set the standard for online account management tools and remains alone at the cutting-edge. With the latest improvements, we can move even more quickly and efficiently to enhance our site and respond to the needs of our customers."

Wright Express also enhanced the site's help feature. Users can quickly get help specific to the function they are using by simply clicking "Help" at the top of every page.

The latest enhancements only improve what is already the industry's best application. WEXOnline remains the only online tool in the industry that allows users to perform account maintenance functions and view detailed transaction reports from a single, integrated platform. WEXOnline allows fleet managers to add and delete card users and perform other account changes online and conduct data searches and create customized reports to help them better manage their fleets.

The upgrade to WEXOnline is only one part of a major technology initiative now underway at Wright Express. The new technology will greatly enhance the features and products Wright Express can offer to customers and will streamline all aspects of customer interaction with the company. Wright Express has begun implementing elements of the upgrade and will continue to implement the new technology into 2004.

South Portland-based Wright Express is the leading provider of fleet charge cards to the fleet maintenance and fueling industry with its cards accepted at more than 160,000 locations. Wright Express also provides information management, payment processing, and financial services to fleets through card partnerships.
