Certas Energy (formerly GB Oils) is rolling out new card payment terminals to its network of dealers.

HTEC’s GemPAY terminals comply with the latest PCI DSS regulations and will also accept Allstar’s EMV card and the Shell and Gulf account cards.

HTEC is working with Certas Energy on the roll-out and will be providing service support for the terminals across its dealer network.

“After an intense three months of planning and development, we are delighted that the roll out is now under way,” said Paul Muncey, head of retail sales, Certas Energy. “It is another significant step forward in the all-encompassing relationships that we are building with our dealers.

“HTEC is an industry expert in this field and GemPAY is specifically designed to meet payment processing requirements of credit, debit and fuel cards within the forecourt sector. It utilises a proven hardware platform and the very latest advances in payment terminal technologies that are compatible with most point of sale systems. The equipment we have selected has proven reliability and is robust and user friendly.

“It’s altogether a better package for the forecourt and for our dealers. The new system is internet-based to process transactions faster and eliminate queues at the checkout and whereas transaction data was previously downloaded overnight, it’s now done in real time which improves security.”

Jeremy Lewis, CEO of HTEC, said: “HTEC has years of experience in forecourt payment and is proud to support Certas Energy in this project. It underlines Certas Energy’s on-going commitment to its dealer network with an enhanced dealer support package.”
