Gilbarco and Beacon Mobile Announce Platform Integration

State of the Art Marketing and Sales Solution for Car Wash Operators

SAN DIEGO, CA, and GREENSBORO, NC - April 15, 2022 - Gilbarco Inc. and Beacon Mobile LLC have announced a partnership and integration between their respective platforms that brings exciting new opportunities to car wash, C-store, and retail fueling operators of all sizes when it comes to driving more sales, improving the customer experience, and boosting customer retention. This new integration combines the power of Gilbarco's Passport platform with Beacon Mobile's comprehensive branded iOS and Android car wash mobile app platform.

Steve Liguori, North America Marketing at Gilbarco, in a statement said, "Partnerships are foundational to the Passport Point-of-Sale System, and we are excited to partner with Beacon Mobile in their initiative to deliver mobile payment technologies to the C-Store, Car Wash, and Retail Fueling industry. Leveraging Beacon Mobile's technology and Passport POS, retailers will be able to provide an enhanced guest experience through mobile payments, subscriptions, cross promotions, and personalization across multiple retail product offerings. We welcome Beacon Mobile as our latest Passport Partner."

Alan Nawoj, CEO of Beacon Mobile LLC, in a statement said "We are excited to partner with Gilbarco and offer Passport customers a comprehensive and cost-effective branded native mobile app solution. Any C-store that sells both fuel and car washes can now offer customers their own branded iOS and Android mobile app with mobile fuel payment and activation, mobile car wash payment and activation, and the ability to sell products and subscriptions inside of the C-store, such as a monthly coffee or drink club subscription program. The unique ability to activate both the fuel pump and car wash from a single mobile app opens the door to some powerful cross promotion opportunities, such as receiving fuel discounts for car wash purchases and vice versa. The branded car wash mobile apps that we develop and manage come packed with effective marketing features, but this new mobile fuel payment ability is a game changer as it now ties together all C-store profit centers under a single app. C-store operators with Passport who sell fuel and car washes can now manage single car wash purchases, car wash subscription programs, car wash fleet accounts, mobile fuel payments, and fueling fleet accounts through their own branded mobile app. We look forward to jointly pursuing the great potential of this partnership and integration with Gilbarco to help retail fuel and car wash operators all over achieve greater levels of success."
