Zuva Petroleum Putting Energy in the Palm of your Hands!

Zuva Petroleum is a Zimbabwean company that was formed in 2010. They boast of more than 80 years of industry leading presence in this country. They are also one of Africa’s leading integrated energy companies and since coming into existence, they have been driven by their people and their commitment to perform to the highest excellence and accountability standards!

On the 11th of March 2016, Zuva Petroleum launched their new Fuel Card and Fuel Coupon that they guarantee will revolutionise the energy industry. “We value the security and peace of mind of our customers. They have a lot to do in a single day and if we can offer them a sense of relief in one aspect, then we know we have done a good job. Our two products offer Security, Convenience and Flexibility and because we are passionate about innovation – we will continue to develop these products based on customer’s needs. We will achieve this by operating responsibly, executing with diligence, leveraging innovative technologies and continuously seeking new opportunities for sustainable growth. We are excited about our new products and my sincere hope is that everyone will find them beneficial in their day to day lives,” said Bethwell Gumbo, Chief Executive Officer for Zuva Petroleum.

Whilst this product is new to Zuva, it’s definitely not new to the market. Their competitors have been running these two products for over 3 years now and the question is why has it taken Zuva until just now to launch a Fuel Card and Fuel Coupon?

“We have taken our time to craft these two products to suit the needs of our customers. Our unique fuel card offers sms updates at every purchase, online updates on all transactions, alerts when your fuel account balance is low ensuring you never run out of credit unknowingly. This aspect is especially important to people that are always on the go. Our coupon on the other hand is not just a coupon, we have introduced a coupon management system which allows for coupons to be activated and deactivated giving customers peace of mind should they by some misfortune lose their coupon!” remarked Mr. Zwelithini Mlotshwa, Chief Operating Officer of Zuva.

One of the values of Zuva Petroleum is ‘curiosity’ so it’s no wonder that they will introduce a card with a unique offering. To make life convenient for customers, the card is a complete travel companion which has two wallets, a fuel wallet and an FBC instant bank account wallet. To activate the FBC instant account, customers will need to visit any FBC branch nationwide. Whilst the fuel wallet can only be used at selected Zuva service stations for the purchase of all fuel products, the FBC wallet (magstripe) can be used at any outlet which accepts Zim Switch cards!

The energy industry seems to be gaining more competitive by the day. We are definitely keeping our eye on Zuva Petroleum as a lot seems to be going on there lately. Whilst the market is still talking about their rebranding exercise, they launch two new products that are on high demand in the country!
