PSD Codax, the developer of token-free control systems for car care equipment, is helping Shell to strengthen control of car wash sales.
New Codax Code Generator technology is being integrated with point-of-sale (POS) systems at more than 150 Shell UK forecourt sites following a deal with POS IT support company, Wincor-Nixdorf.
Linking Codax technology with its POS systems will enable Shell head office to gather accurate data about car wash sales and customer buying habits. It will also help retailers to improve revenue control and simplify the sales process for shop staff, who will be able to sell washes direct from their POS screen.
A single Codax Code Generator Terminal (CCGT), which has ethernet connectivity, eliminates the need for under-counter wiring and multiple Codax ticket printer terminals. The CCGT plugs directly into the in-store network so that all POS terminals can be used to sell car wash and jet wash programmes, and customer access code tickets are then printed by the local POS retail printer.
