Gilbarco Veeder-Root and VeriFone Systems, the secure electronic payment solutions provider, have announced that they are partnering to offer “next generation forecourt payment solutions” and to create the largest at-pump interactive digital media network worldwide.
The two companies will collaborate on future fuel dispenser payment platforms to be developed and supplied by VeriFone. The companies said: “The solutions will meet convenience and fuel retailers’ functionality and regulatory needs in an increasingly complex payment ecosystem, as well as offer at-pump media advertising and entertainment.”
Gilbarco will become the software and solutions integration lead, and sales and service provider for forecourt payment systems developed under the partnership. The companies will work together to transition the payment electronics in Gilbarco’s global dispenser product lines to VeriFone technology. However, both companies will continue to develop and market their point of sale systems for the petroleum and convenience market independently.
In addition, Outcast Media, Gilbarco’s forecourt media business, and Applause TV, Gilbarco’s service station TV network, will be merged with VeriFone’s digital media and VeriFone Digital Network (VNET) businesses.
“VeriFone’s partnership with Gilbarco, the world’s leading dispenser technology provider, is perfectly aligned with our terminal solutions and commerce enablement strategies and will allow us to offer the best payment and forecourt media solutions on the market to our clients around the globe,” said Paul Galant, CEO of VeriFone. “Our collective expertise and access to consumer insights provide significant business value to our clients, helping them increase sales at the pump and in-store.”
“Gilbarco’s leadership in the convenience and petroleum vertical and VeriFone’s expertise in secure payments and media engagement make this an ideal relationship,” said Martin Gafinowitz, president of Gilbarco Veeder-Root. “Gilbarco has the largest installed base of outdoor payment systems in our industry, and combining our deep knowledge of systems and software integration with VeriFone’s broad payment expertise will greatly benefit our customers.”
