Wayne Fueling Systems has announced the launch of a next-generation electronic payment system (EPS) solution in collaboration with Intel Services using its ’Platform for Retail’ software for operators in the US.
The cloud-based solution processes electronic payment transactions with additional payment security via tokenisation – a secure encryption process – at the fuel dispenser or point-of-sale (POS) and simplifies operations across a network of fueling sites.
“Wayne is committed to offering the best solutions for our customers, and we are achieving this by working with the best technology companies in the world,” said Neil Thomas, chief executive officer, Wayne Fueling Systems.
“Applying Intel’s expertise to connect devices through the cloud, offering advanced security and operational efficiencies, is one more way we are changing the industry and improving business.”
Doug Fisher, vice president and general manager, Intel Software and Services Group, commented: “We are excited to collaborate with Wayne on this initiative to transform a traditional business with connected computing.
“The value Intel brings to the fuel retail industry is the ability to leverage API platforms to solve critical business challenges such as fraud prevention and customer insight, while at the same time using the cloud to enable a broader range of value-added services for consumers and new business opportunities for operators."
Wayne’s EPS in the Cloud solution uses Intel Services Platform for Retail software to help fuel retailers deploy industry payment changes across multiple sites virtually instantaneously.
The companies say the technology, featuring an Intel Atom processor in the Wayne Fusion forecourt controller, helps position fuel retailers to meet current and future payment compliance in a quicker and more efficient manner.
“Using Intel’s cloud hosted service for Wayne’s EPS in the Cloud solution allows our customers to bring new payment capability to industry much faster, with greater security while meeting payment compliance needs like PCI and EMV,” said Tom Chittenden, senior manager, strategic initiatives, Wayne Fueling Systems.
“With mobile, EMV, PCI, point-to-point encryption, and other new payment technologies, the changes required at the site to stay current can equate to a lot of software upgrades and potential downtime for the location. Deploying payment capability in the cloud allows our customers to make changes to the way payment transactions are handled with less impact to the site.”
