Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Pesapal has unveiled a new Forecourt Management Solution in Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania delivering integrated payments alongside monitoring and data tools.
The solution drives the automation of fuel and retail management processes, seamlessly connecting distribution points and digital payments – backed up with tools to reduce costs and pilfering while improving the customer experience.
“Independent petrol station operators and large forecourt networks are changing up their business models, with convenience services, new fuels and battery charging. This makes it a more exciting, complex and risky game to be in. We’re helping them automate and digitise, so they can focus on growing their businesses,” said Pesapal CEO Agosta Liko
With the Pesapal Forecourt Management Solution, petrol station owners can remotely monitor and control LPG and fuel dispensers. The solution automates how these talk to tank gauges, price displays and payment systems – which, as usual with Pesapal, integrate mobile money, cards and online payments.
“We’ve spent months working with petrol station owners across East Africa and we’ve consistently heard about a lack of affordable monitoring and data tools for our unique environment. Many owners want to transform their forecourt into a multi-use hub, but they’re flying blind at the moment,” Liko added.
Pesapal provides a back-end reporting tool and allows station owners to link Point of Sale (POS) and other technology platforms to forecourt operations. Additional functions include centralised price changes, RFID-based attendant tagging, automatic indenting of products and posting of outlet data to head office systems.
Pesapal has over a decade of experience empowering African businesses with easily understood information on customers, payments, sales, and inventory.
