Walters-Dimmick Petroleum Upgrades Pumps for PCI Compliance

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Walters-Dimmick Petroleum Inc. of Marshall, Mich., is installing Gilbarco FlexPay Encrypting PIN Pads at its 75 Shell-branded locations across southwestern Michigan, northern Indiana and northern Ohio, the company reported.

The award-winning hardware is Payment Card Industry Encrypting PIN Pad (PCI EPP) compliant, and provides Triple Data Encryption Standard (TDES) encryption of the Personal Identification Numbers (PIN) entered by consumers during debit card transactions at the pumps, according to the company.

"Acting early allowed us to save money. We could properly plan the retrofit program, take advantage of incentives available under the Shell Technology Incentive Program (TIP) and use readily-available local labor resources to handle the installations before increased demand drives their prices up closer to the deadline," Terry Dale, maintenance director at Walters-Dimmick, said in a statement. "We have been very pleased with the FlexPay EPP retrofits."

All dispensers that accept debit must be PCI compliant by July 1, 2010. "The modular design allows seamless integration to Gilbarco dispensers, preserving the dispensers’ approvals and warranties," said Mike Decker, corporate service manager for R.W. Mercer, the Gilbarco Veeder-Root distributor and Authorized Service Contractor that managed the rollout. "Gilbarco FlexPay EPP is also backwards-compatible to existing point of sale systems and requires no wiring changes."
