TLM Technologies has been appointed preferred technology partner globally by Gulf Oil International (GOI) in a deal that will include its licensees and the merchants in its retail networks, including Certas Energy and its Gulf network.

The deal is one part of GOI’s global growth plans as it seeks to grow its 25 Gulf retail fuel networks to 60, throughout the world.

Commenting on the partnership, Paul Stannard, global business development manager at GOI, said: “We’ve monitored TLM’s progress over the last 18 months and have been seriously impressed with the technology they are developing in the retail fuel market.

“The technology roadmap they have ahead offers all the flexibility and forward-thinking our licensees need to be embracing to help their retailers build more customer-focused and sustainable businesses.

“It’s for this reason we have chosen them as our technology partner and will be encouraging new and existing licensees to engage with TLM and take a closer look at their technologies.”

The cornerstone of TLM’s offering is evolution – an end-to-end suite of technology solutions including EPOS, back office, head office, reporting and fuel price management all delivered as on-premise or cloud-based solutions.

Paul Muncey, group sales and marketing director at TLM, explained: “We’re hugely excited about this partnership. Not only does it recognise the modern technologies we’re bringing to the fuel and convenience market, but our ability to help add value to GOI’s offering to its partners. TLM already support many Gulf retailers in the UK.

“We inherently understand the challenges facing this market and the historic frustrations of retailers to achieve systems that join up and power smarter decision-making and better customer experience. Our solutions are built on open technologies which means they’re quick to integrate and compatible with all sorts of third-party solutions globally. This ensures retailers see the benefits in a fraction of the time.”
