ENOC introduces smart cards

Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC) and its subsidiary Emirates Petroleum Products Company (EPPCO) have introduced a range of Select Plus smart cards.

Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC) and its subsidiary Emirates Petroleum Products Company (EPPCO) have introduced a range of Select Plus smart cards. The oil giant believes both cards will enhance services and boost security for its customers. Unlike other payment cards, an agreement with the Al Maha service station network in Oman means ENOC’s Select Plus offerings will work in both the Sultanate and the UAE.

“ENOC pioneered card payments at service stations in the UAE, now it is taking the convenience of card payments to the next level,” says Hussain Sultan, ENOC’s group chief executive & board member. “The new cards [we have introduced] meet customer requirements by providing greater convenience, payment flexibility and swift payment throughout the largest network of service stations in Dubai and the Northern Emirates,” he adds.

Select Plus Credit is a fleet fuel management card for the UAE and Oman that gives 360-degree accountability, which means that fleet managers can set monthly/weekly or even daily credit limits for card holders.

“With this card solution, which is backed by an impressive web-based management system, the expenditure of a large fleet can be simply and effectively controlled,” says Sultan. “They can define exactly what purchases can be made on the cards and can view regular statements online. The web site is the first of its kind in the UAE, and is available for the convenience of all fleet managers,” he explains.

ENOC’s Select Plus Debit smart card is aimed at small-to-medium sized businesses (SMBs) looking for complete fleet expenditure control. Individual card expenditure limits can be set; and pre-paid consumption can be monitored in monthly or more frequent statements, which can be downloaded online.

“The card chip allows for added security, storing card holder information as well as credit and purchase limitations,” explains Sultan. “Expenditure above a certain amount can also be controlled by PIN number if desired by the fleet manager or card holder,” he adds.
