Gulf Oil International (GOI) licensees and merchants in their retail networks will benefit from the latest retail technology innovation, thanks to a new agreement between GOI and TLM Technologies, that officially recognizes TLM as GOI’s preferred global technology partner.
The deal is just one part of GOI’s global growth plans as they seek to scale a 25-strong Gulf retail fuel network to 60, worldwide. These include new licensees in new markets including Mexico, South Africa, and the Philippines, and creating new enablement strategies to help personalize customer experience and capture new markets.
The partnership is further evidence of the inroads TLM is making in the fuel and technology markets. It also illustrates the significant potential major players see in TLM’s technology.
Commenting on the partnership, Paul Stannard, global business development manager at GOI said, “We’ve monitored TLM’s progress over the last 18 months and have been seriously impressed with the technology they are developing in the retail fuel market. The technology roadmap they have ahead offers all the flexibility and forward-thinking our licensees need to be embracing to help retailers build more customer-focused and sustainable businesses. It’s for this reason we have chosen them as our technology partner and will be encouraging new and existing licensees to engage with TLM and take a closer look at their technologies.”
The cornerstone of TLM’s offering is evolution – an end-to-end suite of technology solutions including POS, back office, head office, reporting all delivered via the cloud through commercially attractive and highly flexible software-as-a-service (SaaS) models. As a result, TLM is perfectly placed to work with GOI licensees globally and their retailers to help them streamline how they run their businesses and introduce exciting new digital technology.
Paul Muncey, group sales and marketing director at TLM explains, “We’re hugely excited about this partnership. Not only does it recognize the modern technologies we’re bringing to the fuel and market, but our ability to help add value to GOI’s offering to its partners. TLM already supports many Gulf retailers in the UK. We inherently understand the challenges facing this market and the historic frustrations of retailers to achieve systems that power smarter decision-making and better customer experience. Our solutions are built on open technologies which means they’re quick to integrate and compatible with all sorts of third-party solutions. This ensures retailers see the benefits in a fraction of the time”.
This is the latest in a series of announcements from TLM as it looks to inspire retailers with new possibilities and a refreshing approach to the technologies that are important to their business.
