FLORHAM PARK, N.J. & DALLAS--()--KSS Fuels and FutureMedia Displays announced today the general availability of the Command & Control integration module that supports the automated delivery and verification of fuel price changes from head office to electronic price signs at retail locations. Command & Control will guarantee the fast, accurate update of price displays, with immediate notification of operational status.
“This latest advancement in fully integrated fuel pricing will allow retailers to respond faster to competitor price changes and gain even greater control and visibility into every step of the pricing process, giving added confidence that price changes are fully implemented”
Command & Control integrates KSS Fuels’ PriceNet software and FutureMedia’s PriceVision LED price signs, creating a closed-loop system that confirms successful implementation of new fuel prices at the sign, as well as taking care of synchronization with point-of-sale systems and fuel dispensers.
Command & Control represents a major step forward in fuel price automation, ensuring that fuel retailers can respond quickly to market or competitor changes and enhance customer satisfaction by avoiding fuel price discrepancies among price sign, fuel island and store.
"This latest advancement in fully integrated fuel pricing will allow retailers to respond faster to competitor price changes and gain even greater control and visibility into every step of the pricing process, giving added confidence that price changes are fully implemented," said Bob Stein, President and CEO of KSS Fuels.
Joseph Wilson, President and CEO of FutureMedia Displays, said, “With the start of the trend toward centralized control of multiple sites, confirmation of successful end-to-end management became a critical success factor. As part of the design of the Command & Control system, PriceVision brings the ability to deliver a reliable answer to the customer every time. Because PriceVision is tightly integrated with the store’s point-of-sale system, a positive confirmation from PriceVision to the KSS PriceNet program creates confidence that all systems show the same timely and accurate information.”
