PARIS, France (08 July 2013) – Tokheim, one of the world’s largest suppliers of fuel retailing solutions, is pleased to announce that Rontec has selected its Fuel POS solution for 125 sites in the UK. Rontec, which operates under the Esso brand, chose Tokheim’s point of sale solution to support the strategic growth of their business in England and Wales.
Rontec identified a need for a new point of sale solution that was capable of managing all aspects of their fuel and convenience retail business. Fuel POS was chosen for a number of reasons including its modern, intuitive user interface, its depth of functionality, its ability to control other forecourt products, and its seamless integration with the web-based Tokheim Konnect head-office system.
Doug Paton, Rontec’s IT Project Manager, says, “We selected Tokheim as our IT partner because of the strength of their technology with its future upgrade path, the Tokheim brand, their UK market position, and the fact that they were already a proven global supplier. With Tokheim Konnect particularly, we will have a future-proof head-office solution which we know will continue to evolve in line with the requirements of our business and the wider market.”
Adrian Beeby, Sales Director at Tokheim UK, says, “We are delighted to be working with Rontec on this exciting project. Over the last few months, we have worked closely with Rontec’s IT team in customising our solution to meet their specific requirements. Through Tokheim’s latest range of retail systems, we feel we are now offering customers in the UK the most advanced EPOS, back-office and head-office solutions. The award of this project demonstrates the trust that is placed not only in the quality and innovation of our systems but also in our dedicated IT teams that will help roll-out this project.”
As part of the project the Rontec shops will benefit from a full colour VGA customer display at the POS to help further promote Rontec’s customer offer in the increasingly competitive UK fuel retail market. Tokheim will install 250+ Fuel POS systems over the next 10 weeks across Rontec’s entire network.
