With team energie, PACE expands its acceptance network in Brandenburg, Bremen, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Saxony-Anhalt and Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, with another important partner.
Contactless payment has become increasingly important, and is therefore a matter of course for team energie. Paying directly at the gas pump enables the refueling process to be completed quickly and easily.
Connected Fueling not only enables practical and fast payment via the smartphone: As the only provider in Germany so far, PACE now also supports payment via the Apple Watch or Android smartwatch. You can leave your smartphone in your pocket or in the car while you pay at the pump with your watch.
Using the innovative PACE technology is very simple: After a one-time registration in the free PACE Drive app, you’re ready to go. The next time you visit a team gas station, you simply select the gas pump and a payment method on your smartphone or smartwatch and authorize the transaction after filling up.
The app informs you as soon as the payment has been made. You also receive the receipt digitally. Now, you can continue your journey right away. Of course, the gas station staff is informed about the payment in the cash register display. If you use PACE Drive on your smartphone and smartwatch, all data is synchronized automatically.
“We are proud to work with the visionary team at PACE,” says Marc Wehrenberg, Head of Card Sales at team energie, “It is important to us to provide our customers with ever more cutting-edge services and offers.
The seamless connection of our gas stations to the Connected Fueling platform now enables safer, easier, and faster payment at our gas stations. We are particularly pleased that this is now possible in a particularly technologically advanced way: contactless via smartwatch!”
“The partnership with team energie is of strategic importance for PACE. On the one hand, our collaboration is an important milestone towards the digitalization of gas stations. On the other hand, our network, which already exists in the north of Germany, will thus become even denser,” comments Klaus-Dietrich Gast, Head of Sales at PACE Telematics GmbH. “Refueling of the future is gradually becoming a reality.”
