Dialog launches NFC Corporate Fuel Card Mobile App
Dialog Enterprise, the corporate solutions arm of Dialog Axiata PLC,
has introduced a Mobile Application (App) and USSD code (Unstructured
Supplementary Service Data) service which allows Dialog NFC (Near Field
Communication) corporate fuel cardholders to locate fuel stations from
their mobile device.
The Dialog Touch Corporate Fuel Card offers corporate entities a
virtually paperless system to manage their corporate fuel allowances and
bills, reducing fraudulent activity and enabling the provision of timely
information on fuel transactions to users.
The new app and USSD code service allows over 150 Sri Lankan
companies and 4,000 users that use the Dialog Touch Corporate Fuel Card
on their mobile devices to locate the 102 'Touch' enabled LIOC (Lankan
Indian Oil Company) and Laugfs fuel stations islandwide.
The mobile app can provide information on fuel stations and
directions through Google Maps.
It also provides additional information such as transaction history
and quota balance while the USSD provides information such as custom
search of fuel stations by district, location address and contact
details, open hours and fuel types available at each station. "This new
Android app and USSD service adds further value to our pioneering NFC
based solution by enabling users to find the fuel station closest to
them, and also provides information on usage," said Chief Executive
