The ECRS Open Fuel Server (OFS) integrates seamlessly with CATAPULT to provide a powerful, cashier-friendly C-Store system that handles fuel sales and other transactions within the same POS interface. OFS lets cashiers easily manage all fuel pump activity from the POS touchscreen. From pump authorization, to pre-sets, to pre-pays, the OFS empowers cashiers to manage all fuel dispensing stations from behind the counter. Cashiers can manage stacked sales, disable selected pumps, and even stop fueling on the fly if required. The OFS makes collecting payment for fuel sales simple and fast. With just the single touch of button, cashiers send fuel sales into the transaction journal alongside other items for purchase.
The OFS is a middleware application and hardware server between CATAPULT and the Pump Controller. The OFS represents a very modern, de-coupled software design. For example, all fuel transaction totals are stored and managed by the OFS. The OFS also has its own database and web-based reporting engine that is specific for inside fuel transactions and pay-at-the-pump transactions. The OFS communicates with the pumps via the Allied Electronics ANDI Station Site Controller. This ANDI Controller is a best-of-breed universal pump interface box that works with all major fuel pumps brands and models.CLICK HERE to learn how using the ANDI Controller will streamline the integration, performance, and support of your ECRS Open Fuel Server system.
