ConocoPhillips Certifies Passport POS
GREENSBORO, N.C. -- ConocoPhillips approved Gilbarco Veeder-Root’s Passport with PA-DSS point-of-sale system software Version 8.03G for retailers on their network, the vendor reported. Gilbarco is now shipping orders for new Passport systems and Passport upgrades for the ConocoPhillips V8.03G software.
ConocoPhillips joins the extensive list of other major oil companies and networks for software applications that were previously released. Broad approval is important to multi-branded retailers who benefit from using the same point-of-sale system at all their locations.
Additionally, the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council validated Gilbarco Veeder-Root’s Enhanced Dispenser Hub (EDH), included with Passport V8.02 and V8.03, as compliant with the Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS).
Passport’s architecture segregates all PA-DSS software into a single device to mitigate the impact of on-going changes by PCI. Retailers benefit from Remote Diagnostics and Gilbarco’s 24 x 7 x 365 Help Desk that enable most troubleshooting, fixes and software upgrades to be completed without on-site service calls and site downtime, the vendor reported. Passport continues to allow retailers to keep selling fuel if their server is offline, and Passport with PA-DSS allows retailers to continue to print both masked and secured network reports where network policies allow it.
Passport provides a highly intuitive touchscreen interface that minimizes training time, errors and shrinkage, the company stated. It also offers seamless connectivity and standardization to support third-party loyalty partners and programs, powerful business information and security features, sophisticated business growth tools and easy expandability.
