Westmor service techs, Terry Teppo and Gene Taylor, visited the Cenex in Cass Lake, Minnesota earlier this week. In the past, Westmor service techs had provided maintenance and repairs at the site. For the project this week, the techs replaced four of the convenience store’s fuel dispensers with brand new Encore 700S models from Gilbarco Veeder-Root. Additionally, the techs installed new Passport® point of sale systems, upgrading from the store’s old Ruby system. The upgraded point of sale system made the convenience store EMV compliant.
All convenience stores are required to have EMV upgrades installed by 2020. Those not in compliance will be liable for fraud committed at the point of sale. The upgrade to EMV chip card processing reduces a store’s chance of being the victim of card skimming devices placed on point of sales systems by criminals. Microprocessors within chip cards create stronger transaction security and protect stores from fraud.
Convenience store managers in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and North and South Dakota can schedule an update for their systems now and avoid the rush for compliance as the deadline gets closer.
Westmor provides merchants with parts and upgrades from Gilbarco® Passport, Pinnacle Palm POS™, Gasboy Systems, and more, depending on the needs of the specific store. Certified technicians not only install your upgrade, they’ll maintain and repair it at your request. Contact us today at 800-587-3876 or submit a request through our website.
