Louisiana Truck Stops Unveils New Pay-at-the-Pump Option

NEW ORLEANS -- A new integrated point-of-sale (POS) solution has been installed at the Palace Truck Stop & Casino here, giving drivers looking to fill up the option of pay-at-the-pump convenience. The work was done by Capital Point of Sale. Palace Truck Stop & Casino has 10 fuel dispensers.

The installation is a joint effort of RMS Retail Marketing Solutions Inc., a developer and integrator of fuel management solutions, along with Microsoft Certified Partner Factor One Technology Inc. and Microsoft Authorized Reseller Capitol Point of Sale. The solution combines the Microsoft Dynamics Point-of-Sale (POS) Retail Management System and the RMS Gas Pump Interface (GPI) to create an easy to use, fully integrated POS solution. The RMS GPI component of the MS Dynamics integrated POS solution allows convenience stores and gas stations to effectively manage their confection sales, fuel sales and fuel stock all in one system, according to a press release.

"Adding the ability to manage fuel sales gives us an excellent opportunity to address a critical need faced by retailers selling fuel. We can now give them superior control of their fuel sales and inventory without increasing staff," explained Jason Deyholos, president of Factor One. "We are proud to be able to make this available through the Microsoft Partner network. Our previous clients have been very pleased with the speed and reliability of the POS system with the RMS Gas Pump Interface. It is easy to learn and use, and with the touch screens, store staff can give great service to large numbers of customers."

The RMS GPI is PA-DSS and PCI compliant and can also handle pay-at-the-pump (PAP), so customers can make their transactions quicker and more secure. In addition, the solution supports fleet cards, private loyalty programs, price signs, car washes and tank monitors. It is a flexible, scalable solution that can be used in environments from single convenience stores, to large enterprises with hundreds or even thousands of site locations. And it meets U.S. EPA standards for reporting and history of site operations, according to the press release.

"We needed fuel management for our client and we were impressed with the proven package developed by Factor One and RMS, which combines a reliable fuel management solution with Microsoft’s range of products. The very competitive price was a definite plus as well," said Capital’s Dewaine Parker. "Buying this package has saved us months of development work and thousands of dollars in costs, a saving we can pass on to our clients now and in the future."

RMS, Factor One, Capital Point of Sale and other Microsoft Dynamics Partners will roll out the integrated POS solution nationally and internationally over the next few months.
