Mach 1 Revs Up Operational Performance
TEUTOPOLIS, Ill. — Mach 1 convenience stores, a division of Meyer Oil Co., incorporated the NCR P1530 POS terminals and RPOS software, as well as the NCR Pulse mobile app at its chain of 17 Marathon-branded locations in Illinois and Indiana.
NCR Pulse, via dashboards and alerts, offers information on key operational measures, including fuel operations and other key systems to assist in maximizing uptime on those systems. In addition, Pulse monitors employee actions to better manage staffing levels and employee performance.
“Being able to use NCR solutions is a huge value-add of being a part of Marathon,” said Alan Meyer, fuel manager for Meyer Oil and Mach 1 stores. “With NCR POS [point-of-sale] solutions and Pulse, we’re able increase our speed of delivery and improve uptime, while closely monitoring our operations even when we’re on the go.”

The mainstream POS terminal has been engineered and manufactured to provide sustainability, reliability, maximum uptime and a low total cost of ownership.
