Gilbarco: RFID Pumps Up Profits
- Jul 28, 2016 -

Greensboro, N.C.-based Gilbarco is one of the leading makers of gas stations pumps. Two decades ago, the company expanded into pay-at-the-pump and other point of sale equipment. Now it's trying to bring its expertise in outdoor transaction systems to car washes, quick service restaurants and pharmacies. 

This week, Gilbarco announced that it has successfully tested a new RFID, cash and credit card payment system at two Exxon-branded gas stations in Concord, N.C. The system ties into Gilbarco's G-SITE point-of-sale system, so station owners can process all their transactions through one system. 

The benefit for consumers is they can pull up to a car wash, wave the same key fob they use to pay for gas or snacks in the convenience store, and drive through the car wash. Customers tend to spend more with RFID systems that link to a credit card, because they don't have to worry about how much cash they have in their pocket. And the transaction is quicker, so customers tend to get in and out faster.
