ExxonMobil today announced that its Speedpass electronic payment system has taken a new step in customer convenience.
Utilizing hand held computer technology, Speedpass Instant Activation will allow customers to open a Speedpass account and use their Speedpass fob within about two minutes at Exxon and Mobil stations.
The Instant Activation program is supported by a customer offer of gasoline rebates and incentives.
Speedpass Instant Activation is facilitated by a hand held wireless computer which allows enrollment and activation at Exxon and Mobil retail locations or other remote sites. Customers no longer have to initiate the enrollment process using paper applications, wait for the device to be mailed to them, and then call to activate the device.
Speedpass electronic payment allows customers to make gasoline purchases at the pump and for inside convenience store purchases all with just the wave of a special key ring fob. More than 6 million Speedpass devices have been issued in the U.S. since it was introduced in 1997. Speedpass is accepted at more than 8,800 Exxon and Mobil retail locations in the U.S.
"Speedpass Instant Activation is the next step in convenience, and delivers on our promise to provide speedy purchases for our customers," said Mark Shores, U.S. retail sales director, ExxonMobil Fuels Marketing. "Not only does it allow customers to obtain and use a Speedpass in only a few minutes, it helps our retailers build on their existing base of loyal Speedpass customers."
