Using AZS.GO can almost halve the time spent in filling up, with clients able to make an order for a certain number of litres, or a set price. Motorists can then make payments without even leaving their cars, using a linked bank card or ApplePay. The AZS.GO app offers a search function, by location or by diesel and gasoline prices. Users will soon be offered the opportunity for cash-backs from a range of leading Russian banks.
The mobile app works at 100 filling stations in Moscow and St Petersburg. The number of filling stations connected to the service is expected to reach 200 by the end of 2018, with the app expected to cover the entire Gazpromneft filling station network in Russia by the end of 2019. The app is expected to be developed into a single integrated interface for motorists and professional drivers next year, involving collaborating banks and partners.
“This is the first mobile fuel-payment app to be launched by vertically integrated oil company in Russia. The product has been developed as part of Gazprom Neft’s digital transformation, with the entire development cycle being undertaken within the company. Our experience of the fuel market means we can take an in-depth look at clients’ requirements, and predict their needs. We expect the market in online payments at filling stations to grow exponentially, every year. We are determined to develop the AZS.GO app as a single sign-in access point for motorists and professional drivers, and plan to involve banks and service partners, as well as integrating it with other client-facing solutions,” said Gazprom Neft CEO Alexander Dyukov.
