Forecourt operators have to face the complexities of a filling gas station, a convenience store retailer and a casual dining operator.
These include different pricing structures by grade of petroleum products and geographical region, limited shelf life for inventory, necessity of safety mechanisms at the pump, complex kitchen and menu management, and integration of the POS systems with the fueling pumps and back office – to name just a few.
Technical complexities just add to the mix. Gas stations and forecourt operators often use multiple software solutions to manage the different sections of their business – one for retail management, one for the food service part and one for the filling station.
However, building, managing and running different IT systems is time-consuming and expensive; on top of that, there is the constant risk that integration issues between diverse applications might create inconsistent financial data.
From retail to food service to pump management, our highly intuitive POS systems and fully integrated business management software address all the aspects of a forecourt business, in one powerful, flexible solution, saving you the time and costs of managing and maintaining multiple applications.
With LS Forecourt you will be able to run the whole operation from your headquarters. Keep track of your POS terminals, access store systems, inventory and merchandising from your back office. Run detailed sales reports, decide your strategy with up-to-date, accurate information, and oversee your whole value chain.
Implement a wide variety of pricing structures across your organization with our powerful solution. Head office can centrally set up and modify prices, for example for single service stations or for groupings of them. Gas stations can have different prices at different times of the day, or on different days. Price changes can be scheduled ahead from the central office, so that they will go into effect automatically even if the station is unmanned.
Enhance your efficiency by gaining full control of your pump operations. The system lets you authorize, pause, stop, lock and unlock all pumps. You can also choose to stop them or release them in case of emergency. LS Forecourt supports automatic reading of tank gauge information and deliveries, but data that is not automated –for example tank dip readings, pump volumes and delivery notes – can be entered manually, easy and fast. The highly-automated pumps control considerably speeds up transaction processing.
Manage your staffing accurately and effectively with our shift management tools. Decide how many shifts you want to arrange on each calendar day and receive reports on your staff productivity. End-of-shift reports can be processed to show differences between sales in volumes or amounts and analyzed by POS, tanks and pumps.
Independent forecourt owners have to survive with small profit margins in gasoline sales. In such a competitive environment frauds, theft and drive-offs can endanger a business’s very existence. Our solution both prevents losses and collects information on critical events, enabling the management to react promptly. In case of a critical event, the system can provide a range of data (filling number, receipt, staff member involved, date, time, etc.) and interface all the information with relevant images recorded by the CCTV on the forecourt, inside the retail shop, in the food court and at the register.
