USA: Gilbarco Veeder-Root Launches Passport Version 11.02

Gilbarco Veeder-Root’s Passport Version 11.02 has become available to ExxonMobil branded retailers.

Landmark Industries, an owner of 240 convenience stores under various major fuel brands has become one of the earliest adopters of Gilbarco’s EMV technology to drive EMV “chip” transactions at the fuel island. In order to enable chip card transactions at the front counter and at the fuel dispenser, Landmark is currently switching all its ExxonMobil branded stores.

Gilbarco, being the first to market, has got a head start in grooming the EMV transition process – further aided by Gilbarco’s ability to leverage learnings from broad global EMV implementation experience. Landmark is at the moment, benefiting from Gilbarco’s proven EMV “best practices” including features that guarantees no bank card is left behind by consumers.

Steve Poncik, Landmark Director of Service, said, “Our efforts to rapidly upgrade as many sites as possible with this software has offered our customers peace of mind that Landmark is doing its part to reduce fraud and keep them moving down the road. We’re starting the rollout at our ExxonMobil sites, and are also already testing the Passport EMV release on some of our sites with other brands as well, so we can get to outdoor EMV across our network as quickly as possible.”

“We are excited to help retailers like Landmark be able to protect their customers at the dispenser by enabling EMV acceptance. We expect to see retailers start to accept EMV payments at the dispenser quickly now, as the Point of Sale releases like this one to support EMV at the dispenser now become broadly available,” said Mark Williams, VP of Gilbarco North America Marketing.

Landmark is just one of the ExxonMobil brands eager to start with chip card technology before the fast-approaching 2020 deadline. PWKD03082018
