GREENSBORO, N.C. – January 10, 2011 – Heartland Payment Systems-Chicago has approved Passport with PA-DSS* point of sale system software Version 8.03 for retailers on their network. With the PCI PABP* sunset date quickly approaching for point of sale systems, Gilbarco is now exclusively shipping Passport systems that are PCI PA-DSS* validated. Networks that have certified Gilbarco’s Passport with PA-DSS* validation include: BP, Chevron, Concord (includes Generics, Gulf, Sinclair, Sunoco, Valero), ExxonMobil, Heartland Payment Systems-Chicago, Heartland Payment Systems–Dallas (includes CITGO, ConocoPhillips, Generics, Marathon), NBS/Cenex, RBS WorldPay and Shell.

“Passport delivers a full suite of PA-DSS validated applications for multi-branded jobbers, allowing them to standardize on one POS*, simplifying their operations and reducing costs,” said Andrew Robinson, Director, POS Marketing at Gilbarco Veeder-Root. “We provide a unique architecture that segregates all the complexity of PCI PA-DSS* software into a single device to mitigate the impact of on-going PCI changes. Based on the strength of our architecture, our customers can focus on building their businesses through the rich loyalty, social media, and fuel and merchandising promotional programs that Passport supports.”

Passport provides a highly intuitive touch screen interface that minimizes training time, errors and shrinkage.
