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 payments with additional security via a secure encryption process at the fuel dispenser or point-of-sale (POS), and simplifies operations across a network of fuelling 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."
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.
Tom Chittenden, senior manager, strategic initiatives, Wayne Fueling Systems, added: "With mobile, EMV, PCI, point-to-point encryption, and other new payment technologies, the changes required 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 with less impact to the site."
