Wayne Fueling Systems and Intel Transform Electronic Payment Systems for the Fuel Retailer

Cloud-based electronic payment system (EPS) solutions from Wayne and Intel provide fuel retailers fast EMV® implementation and additional secure payment processing via tokenization for their consumers, as well as access to aggregated data for improved operations.

Austin, Texas - September 9, 2014 - Wayne Fueling Systems, a global provider of fuel dispensing, payment, automation, and control technologies for retail and commercial fuel stations, has announced the launch of a next-generation electronic payment system (EPS) solution in collaboration with Intel Services using its 'Platform for Retail' software. The cloud-based solution, benefiting the fuel retail industry, processes electronic payment transactions with additional payment security via tokenization – a secure encryption process – at the fuel dispenser or point-of-sale (POS) and simplifies operations across a network of fueling sites.

"Wayne is committed to offering the best solutions for our customers, and we are achieving this by working with the best technology companies in the world," says Neil Thomas, Chief Executive Officer, Wayne Fueling Systems. "Applying Intel's expertise to connect devices through the cloud, offering advanced security and operational efficiencies, is one more way we are changing the industry and improving business."

"We are excited to collaborate with Wayne on this initiative to transform a traditional business with connected computing," says Doug Fisher, Vice President and General Manager, Intel Software and Services Group. "The value Intel brings to the fuel retail industry is the ability to leverage API platforms to solve critical business challenges such as fraud prevention and customer insight, while at the same time using the cloud to enable a broader range of value-added services for consumers and new business opportunities for operators."

Wayne's EPS in the Cloud solution uses Intel Services Platform for Retail software to help fuel retailers deploy industry payment changes across multiple sites virtually instantaneously. The technology, featuring an Intel Atom processor in the Wayne Fusion™ forecourt controller, helps position fuel retailers to meet current and future payment compliance in a quicker and more efficient manner. "Using Intel's cloud hosted service for Wayne's EPS in the Cloud solution allows our customers to bring new payment capability to industry much faster, with greater security while meeting payment compliance needs like PCI and EMV," says Tom Chittenden, Senior Manager, Strategic Initiatives, Wayne Fueling Systems. "With mobile, EMV, PCI, point-to-point encryption, and other new payment technologies, the changes required at the site to stay current can equate to a lot of software upgrades and potential downtime for the location. Deploying payment capability in the cloud allows our customers to make changes to the way payment transactions are handled with less impact to the site."

Furthermore, this cloud-based EPS solution offers an additional level of secured transaction for the customer and the retailer by tokenizing the transactions – a process in which credit card data (user name, card number, and other personal information) is encrypted and a token is used as an identifier for the transaction. And in an effort for the retailer to have access to more actionable data, Wayne's EPS in the Cloud solution provides a centralized interface for payment transaction logs, reports, and auditing in a single software interface provided by Wayne. The reporting is accessible on demand for a single location or across multiple locations.

Wayne's EPS in the Cloud solution will debut at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF), September 9th in San Francisco, California. IDF is a premier event that showcases the latest developments in technology innovation in front of some of the world's most influential technology industry leaders. Fuel retailers will have an opportunity to experience Wayne's EPS in the Cloud solution and talk with Intel technology leaders at the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) Show in Las Vegas, Nevada starting October 8th.
