Diesel Card Ireland (DCI) plans to celebrate 25 years in business with an award ceremony for staff later in the year as well as other fun events including an Olympics-style charity fundraiser and even a local version of Carpool Karaoke featuring senior management!

DCI has offices in Galway, Belfast and Derry and is part of Radius Payment Solutions, Europe’s leading independent service provider to the fleet and logistics market. Our cards are similar to a credit card with no joining or application fees and are suitable for all types of customers across the country, from small independent businesses to large logistics operations.

Radius Payment Solutions has rapidly diversified since 2015 and now offers a range of solutions including telematics, vehicle tracking, telecoms and fleet insurance. Radius has recently strengthened its telecommunications offering with the purchase of Belfast-based independent operator, Rainbow Communications.

With the move to electric vehicles set to take place over the next decade, Radius has one eye on the future with a new division specialising in both charging units for either business or home use, and cards for on-road charging networks.

Meeting the changing needs of its customers over the decades has helped keep DCI at the forefront of the industry: Radius Payment Solutions now services more than a million card users globally.

The company’s award-winning online tracking and account management tool Velocity offers customers everything they need in one place, 24 hours a day, while its e-route route planner also ensures customers have the right solutions to match their fuelling and tracking needs. It boasts the largest network of any fuel card provider in Ireland along with specialist 24/7 HGV sites.

The emphasis on customer service is at the heart of the company’s values: from a dedicated WhatsApp channel so they can get an immediate response, to working throughout lockdown to help clients when they need support.

It’s this combination of the latest technology with top-notch customer service that has contributed to DCI’s ongoing success, according to Sinead Doherty, Retention and Services Manager, who has been with the business for over 20 years

Sinead has seen the company grow from three employees to more than 1,600 under Radius. “How we have moved on and innovated and grown in 25 years has been fantastic, it is a really positive company to be part of,” she says. “Our growth has been guided by what our customers need from the technology, like with our Velocity app.”

Awarded the silver Investors in People accolade, as well as being Business All-Star accredited, DCI are “a fantastic company to work for,” she adds.

Commercial Director Brendan Crowley echoes the sentiment that it’s great to work for “a company that’s at the top of its game”, adding that the high level of customer contact throughout the pandemic has helped to both win new business and retain existing customers who appreciated the high levels of service.

“There is lots to look forward to in the future within the sectors we are working in, with so much room to grow to meet the needs of tomorrow’s customers,” he says.

With the mantra of ‘keeping Ireland moving’, through innovation and growth, there’s lots in store for DCI over the next 25 years.
