“Casey’s has a long history working with Gilbarco, and their FlexPay IV solution offers a reliable, full-integrated and open platform for our existing base of Gilbarco dispensers,” states Terry Handley, President and CEO of Casey’s General Stores. “With growing consumer expectations around chip acceptance, we wanted to ensure that we upgrade our forecourts for EMV to help drive customer satisfaction.” As part of their upgrade program, Casey’s will be deploying 10.4” color screens at all new locations.
Jointly developed with Verifone, a world leader in payments and commerce solutions, FlexPay IV from Gilbarco is the first PCI PTS 4.x certified, fuel dispenser payment terminal in the U.S. that supports EMV, NFC, mobile wallets, encryption and 2D barcode scanning, as well as future regulatory changes.
Mark Williams, Vice President of Marketing North America for Gilbarco Veeder-Root, states, “We continue to see industry-leading retailers like Casey’s move forward with their EMV upgrades as they understand that fraud shifts to the least secure payment acceptance points, and they want to ensure a secure payment experience for their customers. Additionally, many retailers like Casey’s are using their EMV upgrades as an opportunity to add on new technologies, like large color screens, to help better reach and connect with their customers.”
