GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Four CITGO locations across Texas have installed Passport, Gilbarco's POS system. The four locations, including one that had been using Gilbarco's G-SITE, installed Passport two months ago and have reported an easy transition to the newest in POS systems.
The Passport system offers a configurable and unlimited number of departments, PLUs, speed keys and tax tables. Built with a dynamic real-time database and NACS-standard XML data exchange, the system is ideal for a wide range of convenience store environments.
In related news, a pair of Louisiana On the Run convenience stores have become the first to implement an interface of Gilbarco's Passport POS and Pinnacle's Oasis Back Office.
The interface is based on PCATS XML standards that were originally developed under the National Association of Convenience Stores Technology Standards Project. PCATS standards make it easy for vendors to share pricebook and transaction information by using standard data formats.
"Passport is easier to learn and configure than other POS systems," said Harry Leach of Denham Springs, La.-based Lard Oil. "Passport's open architecture and user-friendly touchscreen make it easy to integrate and easy to use."
"The implementation went very smoothly," said Denise Lewis, Gilbarco POS product manager. "While it's a new interface for both companies, it is based on industry standards, which made it easier for everyone involved. PCATS NAXML standards benefit the industry by allowing customers to take a 'best of breed' approach to selecting and implementing applications from different suppliers."
Pinnacle Store Systems product manager Melissa Fox also lauded Passport's versatility. "This interface introduces great flexibility for convenience store and petroleum industry retailers to choose what systems are best for them."
