GetSmartFuel generates leads for LPG and fuel suppliers delivering a 24/7 delivery service and convenience to customers
GetSmartFuel was conceptualised in November 2018 and was developed from January to Go Live in September 2019. The technology team of Digital Information Solutions SA managed the project. It is a product of Digital Information Solutions South Africa and Jumbo Fuels who manage the mobile platform and logistics respectively.
We saw the gap in the market for convenient ordering and after hours delivery of LPG, fuel and related services in a smart and connected way bring suppliers and customers close together.
The apps went live on the 7th September on PlayStore and Apple Store
A user can do the following with our apps:
• Google Map integration to see truck schedules for reservation.
• Payment Gateway integration for purchasing of digital coupon of fuel guarantied from fuel suppliers
• On Demand Fuel Delivery, real-time delivery tracking to corporate parking for fuel up and car wash.
• Roadside assistance
The uptake has been good on the suppliers and looking to expand locations with new LPG and Fuel supply companies. Customers are eager for a service to reduce the drive to service stations. According to Data analytics group Lightstone in South Africa, the average motorist stops at a service station approximately nine times per month, typically covering 220km between stops. Helps customers skip unwanted late-night stops in unfamiliar locations.
We are operating in Cape Town and will be expanding to Johannesburg in the coming months.
