Geneva, Switzerland (May 1, 2010) – An ARGUS audit confirmed Colt International accurately invoices customers more than 99 percent of the time. The study sets a new standard in accountability for fuel suppliers and could change the way flight departments shop for fuel.
Explaining the importance of the findings, Colt International's President, Malcolm Hawkins, said, "We are convinced that much of our growth is coming from flight departments who are disappointed in fuel management companies, resellers, and software programs who promise an unbeatable fuel price, then invoice at a higher rate. ARGUS validates the trust that our customers place in us."
Colt's internal research finds many flight departments waste countless dollars every year on overbillings.
"Even if a flight department discovers the inaccurate invoice, they then have to spend hours trying to fix the problem," said Kevin Wilkerson, Colt's Director of Marketing. "Many are reevaluating the purchasing process and deciding to partner with dependable vendors whom they can trust. We're proud that the ARGUS study supports the decision of thousands of flight departments to make Colt their preferred flight support company."
