PARIS, France (2 February 2012) – Tokheim, one of the world’s largest suppliers of fuel retailing solutions, is pleased to announce that Germany’s largest interbank network and debit card service, GiroCard, has certified the Crypto VGA. The first station using Crypto VGA with the new Girocard certification has successfully been installed in Ascheberg, near Münster. Tokheim’s Germany Sales and Service Division (SSD) will be working on a major roll-out for the systems over the first quarter of 2012.

Kurt Dillen, General Manager of Systems and Electronic Business Unit (SEBU) at Tokheim, says, “We are delighted with our latest certification in the German market. It confirms our commitment to provide global solutions and develop these in line with local certifications processes. Our German customers will be able to offer their end users a unique touch screen interface experience in combination with the highest level of PCI compliance. We feel that this package makes the Crypto VGA one of the most secure and exciting new payment products available in the German marketplace.”

Tokheim’s Crypto VGA is developed specifically for the service station market and is available as a standalone payment terminal or as a terminal integrated into the fuel dispenser. Crypto VGA is widely regarded as one of the most secure payment devices in the industry (PCI PTS POI v3.0 compliant) – the terminals and their related software are now approved until 2020.  The 6.4-inch touchscreen delivers an easy to use service for new customers, with payment for credit/debit and fuel cards approved in less than three seconds on the forecourt.
