As 2022 nears its end, we want to thank you for being part of our CardLink community. We hope you get the chance to put your feet up and enjoy a well-deserved break over the festive season.
Because what a year it’s been! 2022 has brought some new challenges for businesses and fleets across New Zealand, with unprecedented fuel price rises topping the list for many.
That’s why we have taken every opportunity to introduce new features that make it easier to run your fleet, and your business, more efficiently and cost-effectively. From our new online support hub to our self-service portal, each innovation we launched this year is designed to put you in control.
Every challenge brings new opportunities, and the electric vehicle market has accelerated in 2022. Our own survey confirmed 26% of our CardSmart survey respondents are in some stage of adding EVs to their fleet. We’re right there with you and recently introduced our new CardSmart Electric to make it simple to manage your fleet costs, no matter what fleet mix you want – fuel or electric or both.
Speaking of sustainability, we know this continues to be a number one concern for our customers, as it is for our business, which is why we are proud to offer our ecoDRIVE programme to New Zealand customers. Running for over 7 years now, ecoDRIVE has already offset 326,000 tonnes of Co2 from the environment. I sincerely hope you take up the opportunity to join the programme to help offset your company’s emissions and make a positive difference to the planet – you can learn more about ecoDRIVE here.
Our team will take a well-earned break over the holidays, with Customer Support closed on December 26th, 27th and January 3rd. However, there is 24hr support available should there be any urgent enquiries.
From all of us at CardLink, we hope you have a happy and safe festive season, and a wonderful 2023.
Managing Director ANZ
