PARIS, France (03 June, 2015) – Tokheim, one of the world’s leading suppliers of fuel retailing solutions, is pleased to announce that it has launched its innovative mobile payment solution, with first pilot sites having been deployed in the Netherlands. The Tokheim mobile payment turns the classical fuel card or cash payment into a modern and flexible fuelling app opening up new ways to enhance customer interaction.
The mobile payment app offers consumers a fast and secure way to pay for fuel, view their historical usage and automatically retrieve electronic receipts on their smartphone. Whilst respecting fuel station health and safety regulations, consumers can handle the complete payment process on their mobile phone from within their own vehicle.
The beacon technology utilised by Tokheim will enrich the fuelling experience even further. Beacons will trigger a welcome notification to the smartphone when arriving at the station and confirm the location of the dispenser to the mobile phone.
Security and privacy is fully guaranteed as no card numbers or sensitive personal data are stored on the smart phone.
The Tokheim cloud-based mobile payment server, COMPASS, manages the entire process and interacts with Tokheim’s leading fuel retail automation system, the Fuel POS, for forecourt activity and reporting. COMPASS also transmits the financial transactions to Tokheim’s payment host, OASE, for further authorisation processing.
Kurt Dillen, General Manager System & Electronics Business Unit comments: “Tokheim is constantly exploring new technologies to create a seamless and pleasurable fuel station experience for the customers. The mobile technology has changed the way we look at our environment, and the fuel station is no exception to that. Our primary aim is to provide added value to existing and new customers and end-users by simplifying the process and reducing the time at the pump. We believe that this solution will help improve the customers’ fueling experience significantly.”
