The ideal secure network solution for your Branded and Unbranded stores
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 adjusting to a "new normal" and its impact on business, stores must grapple with 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 unbranded 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 connection and network. They provide the foundation for a digitally advanced retail petroleum operations, which includes:
- Point-of-sale (POS) systems
- Back-office applications such as real-time inventory
- Digital menu boards
- 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 tailors off-the-shelf solutions to optimize and secure a network, protect against cyber threats and drive technology transformation capable of converting gas customers into retail patrons.
