CHICAGO (October 4, 2017) - ONE Brands unveiled their brand-new look at the NACS trade show in Chicago recently.

> Moyle Petroleum partners with Gilbarco to complete forecourt EMV upgrades.
GREENSBORO, N.C., Sept. 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Moyle Petroleum, a family-owned business headquartered in South Dakota that specializes in the convenience store industry, chose to standardize its c-store forecourt infrastructure with Gilbarco’s EMV™ and Applause™ TV media solutions to increase store traffic and mitigate fraudulent transactions at the dispenser.
Applause TV is a turnkey digital marketing solution designed to entertain and engage customers while they’re on the forecourt driving them into the store. The entertainment and promotional content varies by time of day, promoting high-margin in-store items. According to Jonathan Kemp, I.T. Systems Manager at Moyle, “We look forward to protecting our customers’ credit and debit cards from fraud with the additional security of EMV on the forecourt. Upgrading to EMV inside the store was a pretty painless process and aligns with our mission, while giving us a competitive edge.” Moyle uses Gilbarco’s Passport® Point-of-Sale system inside the store.
Gilbarco’s VP of Marketing for North America, Mark Williams, says that consumer expectations have really pushed retailers to focus on EMV. “We launched EMV software for our Passport point-of-sale system more than a year ago. Consumers are starting to expect EMV payment acceptance, and leading retailers like Moyle are listening and rapidly enabling EMV inside the store. Given growing consumer expectations around EMV, we expect to see EMV 'turn on' at the fuel dispenser rapidly as well when the software is available later this year. Retailers are anxious to retain their security-conscious customers, who understand that fraud will be highest at those sites that haven’t yet upgraded.”
Applause TV can be factory-installed to support media in Gilbarco’s new Encore® 700 S dispensers or in FlexPay II retrofit kits for existing Encore 300, 500 or Advantage models. It leverages the same high-speed communications equipment required for EMV, making one upgrade a logical extension of the other.

> Excentus introduces tools to give CPG manufacturers direct access to convenience retail shoppers.
New solutions are designed to improve CPG tracking and insights, and ultimately increase sales
DALLAS – October 19, 2017 – Excentus, a provider of loyalty technology and marketing solutions to national and regional brands, convenience retailers, grocers, and consumer packaged goods (CPG) manufacturers, launched new products and solutions to increase sales and improve promotions for CPG manufacturers at the recent National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) Show.
“Excentus is introducing solutions at NACS to specifically address direct line-of-sight into shopper behavior that CPG brands currently lack," said Jamie Hudson, Vice President of Promotional Services for Excentus.
Through Excentus’ retail programs, CPG brands will have unparalleled access to millions of shoppers, helping them better understand exactly who their customers are through sku-level data and personally identifiable consumer information. CPG manufacturers can in turn identify new opportunities to deliver the right branded offers and promotions to the right audiences and drive product movement. According to Excentus’ internal program data, customers spend 2x more inside c-stores when they belong to a loyalty program, and nearly 6x more if they are engaging with valuable offers.
Excentus provides flexible CPG-funded offer constructs that include cents-per-gallon fuel discounts, free items and rewards clubs, and product discounts. CPG brands can leverage Excentus’ direct-to-consumer communication channels through the Fuel Rewards program and other Excentus-supported retail programs.
In addition to offers and messaging, Excentus provides the data-driven tools that CPG brands need to compete in a highly competitive (and crowded) retail market, with detailed reporting to measure incremental sales volume and increased product visibility. Brands can segment and target customers based on their interactions, spending patterns, cross-brand purchases and other preferences. Brands can also layer on geographic data to target campaigns nationally or by region and conduct competitor analysis and customer lifetime value analysis.
Further information about the company’s solutions for CPG manufacturers is available by calling 305-749-5342.
