Convert Fuel Customers into Loyal Retail Patrons

Create a streamlined and efficient buying experience for your customers with a high-performing network and innovative technologies.


The retail petroleum and C-store industry faces enormous market pressures. Along with the pandemic’s impact on business, there are growing cybersecurity threats, new privacy regulations governing customer and employee data, and the lingering outdoor EMV liability shift in the U.S. In fact, thousands of locations have still not met EMV upgrade requirements, which puts operations at greater risk for cyber theft, stiff penalties and lost revenue.

Successfully navigating these changing mandates and customer expectations for in-and-out convenience all comes down to your network. It provides the foundation for today’s retail petroleum operations, including:

  • Point-of-sale (POS) systems
  • Back-office applications such as real-time inventory
  • Digital signage at the pump and in the store
  • IP security monitoring
  • Plus conveniences like interactive kiosks, loyalty apps and automated teller machines (ATMs)

To support these applications today (with the scalability necessary for tomorrow), Hughes builds tailored solutions to optimize and secure your network, protect against cyber threats and drive technology transformation that helps convert gas customers into retail patrons.

Our suite of HughesON™ Managed Network Services can help you:

Improve customer experience (and sales!). Whether your customers want to pay with Venmo at the register or order food at the pump, our solutions, like Managed Wi-Fi , can expand the types of buying experiences you can offer, streamline processes and enable you to create a more efficient and frictionless customer experience. Our digital signage creates real-time customer-facing communications, like in-store or at-the-pump product and sales promotions.
