Clark Brands LLC, of Naperville, Ill., and Gilbarco Veeder-Root have entered a strategic alliance that covers point-of-sale systems, installation services and Gilbarco Fuel Management Services, the companies said.
As part of the agreement, Clark and Gilbarco are offering Clark customers a program to upgrade locations currently operating G-SITE POS systems to Gilbarco’s Passport POS systems.
In the first phase, Clark and Gilbarco developed a comprehensive program that includes significant funding by Clark for its customers to transition G-SITE locations to Passport. Future initiatives are under development, including a leasing option with a third-party vendor and programs for other POS devices.
“We are pleased and excited to be working with Gilbarco to develop business solutions that add value for our customers’ businesses,” said Karl Goodhouse, president of Clark Brands. “Having the right POS systems to meet the Payment Card Industry (PCI) requirements for secure transactions is important to our Licensee and jobber customers and their customers. We believe this strategic alliance with Gilbarco will help our customers in many ways, including offering them the right POS solutions for payment processing.”
“Clark Licensees will also take advantage of best-in-class connectivity that supports a wide range of choices for loyalty programs, back office systems, price signs and other partnerships,” said Mikey Fradin, director of point of sale Marketing at Gilbarco Veeder-Root.
Gilbarco said the Passport POS system provides a highly intuitive touch screen interface that minimizes training time, errors and shrinkage. It provides seamless connectivity and standardization, powerful business information and security features, sophisticated business growth tools and easy expandability.
