Top XFuel Earners Recognized as Mark of Excellence Xccelerate Pilot Program Ends

The Xccelerate mobile application, launched as a pilot program in the 2020 Mark of Excellence (MOE) program (U.S.), has concluded. The interactive Xccelerate app provided technicians with more opportunities to complete missions for XFuel, recognize peers in the service department, and track MOE performance in a convenient, mobile-first interface.

Phase 2 of the Xccelerate pilot program ended December 31, 2020. All enrolled technicians were sent an email announcing the conclusion of the Xccelerate program in early January. (Fig. 7)

The Mark of Excellence program has recognized the achievements of GM dealership personnel for 20 years. Service technicians enrolled in the program can earn recognition for their outstanding performance as well as a number of awards when they meet program qualifiers and other criteria. The 2021 MOE program runs from January 5, 2021 through January 3, 2022.


Xccelerate XFuel

The Xccelerate app offered technicians a convenient, easy way to access service-related information just about anywhere. But it also enabled participants to earn MOE Ranking Score points by collecting XFuel. (Fig. 8)

Completing the missions on the app to collect XFuel during Phase 2 of the program encouraged technicians to help build better habits on the job while also earning additional Ranking Score points toward 2020 MOE year-end rewards (1 XFuel = 0.25 Ranking Score).

With over 130 missions earning XFuel, there were 2,000 XFuel possible (500 potential MOE Ranking Score points) in Phase 2 of the Xccelerate program. Two technicians tied for the top spot with each collecting 1,890 XFuel.

  1. I agree with Richard, nobody in my dealership was participating, points lost.

  2. Richard muhl says:

    peer to peer recognition was not fair to the small dealerships out in small town America since there may be only one participant and have no one to recognize so we cannot earn those points. leave that out next time.

    And to the others who have studied and have become the best of the best.
