BP Plus Online reporting provides a powerful range of reporting options that will help you manage your fleet and costs, saving you time and effort in your busy day. It also gives you a comprehensive suite of reporting tools.
BP Plus Online reporting gives you a comprehensive choice of reporting facilities free of charge.
To help make reporting easier for your business, you can also nominate a cost centre, vehicle and/or driver ID or a reference number to be attached to each individual card. Applying these numbers against individual cards enables you to run customised reporting in BP Plus Online for each cost centre, or reference number - a great solution for larger businesses that require reporting to allocate costs across multiple departments.
Cost centres can be added or updated at any time without the need to reissue cards.
Vehicle & Driver ID numbers are unique to your business and help you to manage your fuel costs across a card or group of cards. Reference numbers are embossed on the front of BP Plus cards and as a result, changes to these numbers will require a new card to be issued.Reference numbers are unique to your business and help you to manage your fuel costs across a card or group of cards.

All reports housed in these groups will provide you with data relating to that category of information - e.g. the 'Cards' group contains all reports available on BP Plus Online that will provide you with card information for your fleet. If you are unsure about what information a reports provides you with, the 'About this Report' box to the side of the page provides you with a short description of the report you have clicked on.

The 'Report Scheduling' section allows you to nominate whether or not you would like your report to be run just the once or be set up to run automatically at set intervals. This section is automatically set to the option 'Run this report just once', so if you only need the report to run once you can skip straight to Report Delivery. If you would like to set up your report as a Recurring Report, select the option 'Schedule this as a new recurring report'. Once you select this option, you will be asked to:

For each individual card in your fleet, you are able to set up 'soft limits' for Unusual Activity (also known as Exception Reporting) to be generated against. NOTE: 'Soft limits' are reporting limits only and will not cause a transaction to decline at the point of sale. Unusual Activity (also known as Exception Reporting) enables your business to keep a close eye on your fleet and transactional activity, whilst eliminating the inconvenience of drivers being declined at BP locations.
This can be very useful for the monitoring of potential fraud in your business. For more information about the BP Plus fraud protection service Care+ Card Security click here.
A range of limits can be selected, so that you can closely align the limits with the expected transaction behaviour of the card.
BP strongly recommends that you setup unusual activity limits against each individual card in your fleet, and then set up the unusual activity reporting as a scheduled report to run daily.. Setting the report up to run daily will ensure that if a card limit breach occurs, you will receive a report to your email within 24 hours.
NOTE: Changing the Unusual Activity reporting limits against a card does not require a card to be reissued.
Use the following steps to set up Unusual Activity reporting for your business:
