UK-based PSD Codax is helping BP in Australia take control of its car wash revenue.

BP is integrating Codax Code Generator technology with its pos system to improve sales data reporting and security at sites across Australia. The system has been rolled out in conjunction with car wash equipment from WashTec.

The new Codax system ­- which has ethernet connectivity and eliminates the need for under-counter wiring - plugs directly into the in-store network so that all tills can be used to sell car wash programmes and print customer access codes.

Pos integration with the technology also enables head office to collect accurate sales data from almost any sales desk. Wash codes are issued only after a till transaction has been completed, which prevents miss-keying and staff giving away free car washes. 

The new Codax Code Generators aim to help to reduce shrinkage and improve and speed-up the daily reconciliation process for station management. They can also give retailers the option of selling smartcards for multi-buy wash promotions direct from their pos terminals.

Other Codax Code Generator customers include Shell UK, which recently installed over 150 units, and Peregrine Corporation in Australia.
