Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores will deploy Postilion solutions to enable the company to centralize fleet card authorization and transaction capture.
The Oklahoma City-based chain chose Postilion, Postilion, a provider of integrated solutions for payment processing and self-service banking, because they are able to streamline its authorization and transaction capture process by integrating payment for fuel at the pump with traditional retailing, despite the complexity of the travel industry and the range of fleet cards used to purchase fuel. This is done via a central open-systems payment switch running Postilion, rather than at the store level.
“Given our current goals for growing our stores by 15 locations a year and the increasingly tighter margins on fuel purchases, it was imperative that we find new ways to streamline our transaction processing,” said James Xenos, vice president and chief information officer for Love’s. “The Postilion Forecourt and POS Payments solution and the Postilion Payment Switching solution enable us to further control the payment transaction authorization and settlement process, which in turn reduces our costs and improves our customers’ overall experience at the pump and in the store.”
Love’s operates 200 stores in more than 30 states.
