Leading Gibraltar fuel supplier, Gib Oil®, have chosen Orbis Tech’s Site Management solution for their petrol forecourts and Yacht Terminal. The roll-out, starting this May, will provide web-based architecture for EPOS, Back Office and Head Office, securely hosted in the cloud. The Orbis project includes integration with both Exl Rewards loyalty program and Gib Oil Go Fuel Card system. The ageing hardware and legacy software currently used meant that Gib Oil® were starting to struggle to maintain operation and control of their business. They recognised the need to change to a new solution as soon as possible which could provide functionality for both COCO and CODO operations.
“We need to keep up with the times,” says Gib Oil’s, Mark Cruz, “Orbis will allow us to have a single head-office, back-offices and point-of-sale platform that is far more advanced than our current system and will improve the customer service offering.” The change to Orbis will enable Gib Oil® to replace outdated Oracle Prism and Iridium systems they currently use which are now over twelve years old.
According to Orbis Tech’s Jon McCarthy, Sales Manager UK and Ireland at Orbis Tech, “With this deployment, as with others, Gib Oil are future-proofing their fuel and retail business through technology to meet today’s and tomorrows requirements. We really look forward to working with Gib Oil. Their business will see the benefits they can achieve across their entire estate from improving management operational processes and meeting increasing consumer demands for convenience, including; fuel, coffee, food-to-go, groceries and other retail offerings.”
