The H24 solution provides petrol stations with the integration of their own systems with faster operations and gives them greater control in the transactions processed, with a fully secure system. In the first stage, the solution is aimed at independent petrol stations in order to offer their customers added-value services, and it includes the management of fuel cards of the main international operators. In the second stage, the solution will include the management of any bank card. The target is to equip over 1.000 stations by end of 2013.
This application is available for the Spanish Petrol market since August, 2010, and now in Italy. The H24 mobile application will also be available free of charge on Google Play and in the App Store: it is intended for any person downloading it to perform certain functions from their mobile, such as planning travel routes, finding the geographical location of petrol stations, detecting radar, etc., and even blocking H24 cards.
