Leading UK fuel and lubricants supplier Certas Energy, have chosen Orbis Tech’s EPOS solution for the six Gulf branded forecourts recently purchased from David Taylor in South Wales. The roll-out starting this October will increase the Certas estate using Orbis Tech from 19 to 25 sites. Orbis features web-based architecture for the back-office and head-office, securely hosted in the cloud. The Orbis solution removes the need for a costly local server at each forecourt and the infrastructure that goes with it.
“The shift to Orbis is a strategic business move for Certas,” says Certas Energy’s Retail Director, Richard Billington, “Because Orbis will allow us to have a single head-office, back-offices and point-of-sale platform across our entire estate.” The change to Orbis will enable Certas to replace outdated systems, improve the support process and deliver increased functionality across fuel, retail and hospitality utilizing Orbis’s all in one integrated POS, back-office and head-office system.
According to Orbis Tech’s UK and Ireland Sales Manager, Jon McCarthy, “With this deployment Certas are future-proofing their forecourt retail business through technology to meet today and tomorrows requirements. We are delighted to win this contract and look forward to continuing working with Certas Energy into the future. Certas will continue to enjoy the benefits they can achieve across their estate from meeting increasing consumer demands for convenience, including; fuel, coffee, food-to-go, groceries and other retail offerings.”
