BUTTE, Mont. — Town Pump Inc. completed a rollout of the Gilbarco Veeder-Root Passport POS system at all 97 of its convenience store locations in Montana.
Town Pump leadership had been searching for a point-of-sale (POS) system that would support evolving credit networks, loyalty programs, enable remote management and provide a foundation for pending changes due to the EMV (Europay, MasterCard and Visa) liability shift.
According to Gilbarco, Butte-based Town Pump preferred the Passport architecture over other systems it evaluated because of the separation of the payment functionality from the POS features, providing a better foundation for the changes coming with EMV.
Passport POS also has a streamlined, easy-to-use touchscreen intended to shorten employee training time and speed up the time it takes to serve customers.
“We have a longstanding partnership with Gilbarco on the forecourt,” said Town Pump Chief Information Officer Eric Reibsane. “Adding Passport to our technology portfolio has dramatically improved functionality, administration and reliability in the POS arena. Gilbarco was an exceptional implementation partner and their experience was instrumental in the success of Passport deployment.”
Gilbarco was easily able to complete the conversion from Town Pump's previous POS system, according to the Greensboro, N.C.-based technology provider for retail and commercial fueling operations.
"It’s been a pleasure working with the Town Pump team and our local distributor to make sure that their rollout and integration with other systems went smoothly,” said Travis Bouck, vice president of marketing, North America, for Gilbarco. “We’re looking forward to supporting their growth with our Passport development roadmap.”
