HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–To Go Stores has selected P97 Networks’ PetroZone® Mobile Commerce and
Digital Marketing Platform to enable mobile payments at the pump and for
in-store mobile transactions.
The platform will be deployed across all 33 stores by the end of the
year. Included in the deployment is PetroZone’s Contextual Commerce
Engine that enables To Go Stores’ white labeled branded app to provide
mobile fuel discounts and dynamically provide their consumers with
personalized digital offers to drive more in-store sales.
“To Go Stores places a high value on customers’ experiences at our
stores and P97’s PetroZone mobile platform meets our expectations for
security, time and cost savings, than ever possible with cards or cash,”
said Nelson Capote, President of To Go Stores. “We believe with as few
as five additional customers per store per day, mobile pays for itself

The mobile deployment will take full advantage of P97’s strategic
partner Verifone’s, new Commander Electronic Payment Server/Forecourt
Controllers, which are being installed at all sites to ensure the
in-store Point of Sale systems are EMV compliant and enabled with the
Conexxus mobile standard. Rapid and secure mobile account authentication
is supported by Microsoft’s Azure B2C and payment accounts are enabled
instantly with the PetroZone integration by Automated Clearing House
(ACH) provider BIM (Buy It Mobility).
“Verifone’s Commander platform has set the pace for a new era of site
control systems, based on Conexxus industry standards. This enables
delivery of low cost plug and play integration to technologies like
P97’s mobile commerce and digital, loyalty and fleet systems, and
ensures To Go Stores and our clients worldwide have their choice of
payment types,” commented Dan Yienger, Senior Vice President and General
Manager of Petroleum for Verifone.
“To Go Stores is a visionary customer with a pragmatic approach to
better service their customers,” said Donald Frieden, President and CEO
of P97 Networks. “The Puerto Rico fuels industry is unique, as most
retail merchants never upgraded fuel pumps to have card readers, making
it the perfect market for mobile adoption. We are very excited to work
with To Go Stores and bring mobile payments and digital offers to
customers in the Caribbean.”
