Technology & Innovation About
Technology and innovation are now at the heart of everything Radius is doing, both in how we develop our products and then how we deliver them to our customers. Our in-house dedicated software teams make use of the latest applications to develop unique features on our web, tablet and app portals.
These are designed to be both intuitive and fast which is how we want to differentiate ourselves versus competition. Customer feedback drives the direction of our system development and our 5 weekly rollout cycles mean that there is constant evolution and improvement in the user experience.
Technology & Innovation Velocity
Velocity is the group’s Web portal for interacting with its customers. Continuously developing both the content and usability of this system is seen as critical to the future of Radius and is a key focus of both senior management time and financial investment. We already have over 85,000 regular users, which is growing monthly as customers convert to using it for their normal administrative weekly requirements such as card ordering and invoice collection.
Velocity already offers industry-leading features such as real-time SMS transactional text alerts, an integrated fuel and MasterCard® reporting suite and drag and drop cost centre creation. The launch of Kinesis, our telematics product, has further enhanced the advantages that Velocity can bring and is an industry first that we hope will continue to keep us a step ahead of competition.
Technology & Innovation Technology Hub
Manchester is now the centre of a growing technology community based around both innovative web based businesses that have moved into the city and a strong university student population.
Our new office has been located to take advantage of this rich seam of talent and keep us at the forefront of changes that are occurring within this critical part of the business economy.
Technology & Innovation Global HQ
Crewe has been home to Radius for nearly 20 years and during the last 12 months we have been working on a project to design a new state of the art office to support the future growth of the business. The new building will utilise the latest technology and provide a really nice working environment with a wide range of facilities including a gym and other creative workspace areas.
Technology & Innovation E-Route
e-Route is our purpose built software, which our customers can access via the web or via a smartphone app. More than just a site locator, e-Route is a valuable tool for planning journeys that enables our customers to deliver long-term cost savings through reduced route deviation. With the ability to select a start and destination point, it can highlight all fuel sites between two locations and show real-time traffic congestion levels.
- Network selection
- Find your nearest station
- Live traffic information
- Find the closest station to a specific location
- A regularly updated fuel station database
