Gilbarco Veeder-Root will be teaming up with secure payment and transaction specialist, Ingenico, to deliver indoor and outdoor payment solutions to forecourt retailers worldwide.

In an announcement made at this year’s NACS conference in Las Vegas, the two companies said they planned to combine their expertise to jointly develop solutions as part of a "strategic global partnership".

The alliance aims to address the requirements of multiple markets, countries and standards, with particular focus on secure EMV-compliant Chip & PIN solutions.

Kirsten Paust, Gilbarco Veeder-Root’s global vice president for retail solutions, said: "Ingenico’s technology and expertise will allow us to deliver seamless payment solutions that extend the general retail environment to the convenience store and the forecourt.

"As we globalise our indoor and outdoor payment platforms, our customers will benefit through the integration of key Ingenico technologies with products like our EMV-approved SPOT Outdoor Payment Terminal."

Malcolm Bushell, Ingenico’s executive vice president of global sales & services, added: "Gilbarco’s expertise in outdoor payment and petroleum retail automation makes them an outstanding partner to leverage Ingenico’s unparalleled expertise and technology in retail payment systems.

"This alliance brings immediate value to our customers in the fuel industry."
