Petro-Canada Transforms Customer Experience with NCR’s Retalix StorePoint
Innovative software to help Petro-Canada build shopper loyalty across its more
than 1,500 retail locations
DULUTH, Ga. -- June 19, 2013
NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), the global leader in consumer transaction
technologies, announced today that Suncor Energy has selected NCR’s Retalix
StorePoint point-of-sale (POS) and fuel management software for the company’s
Petro-Canada branded retail network.
Petro-Canada, known as “Canada’s gas station,” has more than 1,500 retail
outlets across the country and is rapidly expanding its use of technology to
enhance shopper experiences and to drive shopper loyalty. Suncor Energy chose
StorePoint because the software met the company’s immediate needs and is
easily expandable and adaptable to meet future needs.
StorePoint meets all traditional convenience and petroleum store software
needs, from forecourt fuel management to back-office operations and everything
in between. The solution also supports pricing and promotions, comprehensive
replenishment management, food service management and more.
Suncor plans to ramp up marketing and promotions activity at Petro-Canada
stores in the near future. This was one of the major considerations in
Petro-Canada’s selection of StorePoint. The software supports Suncor’s current
needs and can quickly bring new marketing and promotions initiatives to
Petro-Canada shoppers as those initiatives are finalized and rolled out.
“Engaging and marketing to our customers in new ways is key to building
shopper loyalty and encouraging repeat visits, and it is the foundation of our
retail brand strategy,” said Petro-Canada Director of Marketing Strategies,
Pat Lizotte. “StorePoint offered us the functionality and reliability we need
now and the ability to easily expand our marketing programs in the future.”
“Powerful software can be a key differentiator for retailers as they work to
transform customer shopping experiences and operate their stores more
efficiently,” Jimmy Frangis, vice president and general manager grocery and
convenience retail at NCR. “We look forward to working with Petro-Canada and
providing technology solutions to make their stores even more welcoming to
shoppers throughout Canada.”
