2/26/2003 - Fujitsu Transaction Solutions Inc. and its affiliates will supply point-of-sale hardware systems to ChevronTexaco Corporation’s branded service stations worldwide through a global agreement. The agreement is expected to result in the installation or replacement of electronic point-of-sale systems in more than 8,500 of ChevronTexaco’s 25,000 branded service stations worldwide over the next five years.
“This may well be the first time a major oil company has established a global retail electronic POS hardware standard in the petroleum/convenience store market,” said Ron Omohundro, executive vice president of Fujitsu Transaction Solutions Inc. “Our objective is to help ChevronTexaco set a benchmark for the global deployment and management of standard solutions in this challenging market.”
“Our global alliance relationship with Fujitsu Transaction Solutions Inc. and its affiliates is a key step toward achieving our strategy of global standardization for our electronic point-of-sale systems at our branded service stations,” said Sheila Taylor, decision executive for ChevronTexaco’s Global Retail Automation Project and vice president of the company’s marketing organization in the U.S. “The agreement will also deliver products that better meet our customers’ needs, greater efficiency and cost-savings across our worldwide downstream business units.”
ChevronTexaco service stations operate under the Chevron brand in the United States and Canada; the Texaco brand in Europe, Latin America and west Africa; and the Caltex brand in Asia, the Middle East and east Africa.
“Like other leading retailers we serve, ChevronTexaco is focused on cost reduction as one way to improve the total cost of ownership of its IT solutions,” Omohundro said. “The petroleum/convenience store retail environment requires a robust platform that is scalable, flexible and able to meet future functionality needs.”
“Fujitsu’s objective is to provide a single global solution delivered in a way that matches local expectations while at the same time offering the flexibility to transition to new technology infrastructures as they become viable. Our goal is to reduce the total cost of ownership for these systems while improving service delivery quality.”
Fujitsu’s TeamPoS 2000 is a point-of-sale system that adapts easily for POS, customer kiosks, multimedia displays or management terminals. Its modular design enables the system to grow and change with the retailing environment, resulting in the elimination of costly system replacements, maintenance and upgrades. TeamPoS 2000 supports a wide range of configuration options to suit individual store needs.
