GB Oils is aiming to strengthen its dealer support package with the roll-out of the HTEC GemPAY card payment terminal. It says it will enable dealers to process transactions up to 10 times faster while providing increased end-user security in line with the latest PCI DSS legislation.

The first phase of the installation is under way with the roll-out to more than 300 Gulf, Total, and Power branded dealers previously serviced by Rontec over the next three months. The second phase involves the roll-out to all other Gulf, Pace and other branded forecourts in the GB Oils network.

"After an intense three months of planning and development, we are delighted the roll-out is under way," said Paul Muncey, head of retail sales, GB Oils. "HTEC is an industry expert in this field and its GemPAY system is specifically designed to meet payment processing requirements of credit, debit and fuel cards in the forecourt sector."

The new system accepts the Allstar EMV card along with both the Shell and Gulf account cards. "Acceptance of the industry’s leading fuel cards is important to our dealers and we are working with BP to reintroduce acceptance of BP fuel cards," he added.

"The new system is internet-based to process transactions faster and eliminate queues at the checkout and whereas transaction data was previously downloaded overnight, it’s now done in real time which improves security."
