Upgrade Dispenser and Payment Technologies

GREENBORO, NC--(Marketwired - February 28, 2017) - Gilbarco Veeder-Root and Patriot Capital have announced a financing program for Gilbarco Encore® 700 S fuel dispensers. The program provides rates starting at 1.9% for convenience-store operators who wish to upgrade their dispenser and payment technologies using Gilbarco products.

C-stores will benefit from Encore 700 S financing rates of 1.9% on a 24-month, equipment-financing term. Low-financing rates are also available on 36-month (3.9%) and 60-month (4.9%) terms for the Encore 700 S series dispensers.

"Gilbarco's customers are looking for ways to improve their customers' experience, while also growing their sales at the gas pump and in-store. With EMV pump-payment upgrades well underway, this program provides C-Stores an opportunity to enable better payment security for their customers and also to improve their consumers' fueling experience and drive more traffic to their sites and inside the store," said Mark Williams, Vice President of Marketing, North America for Gilbarco.

Gaining financing approval for the Encore 700 S is easy using Patriot Capital's hassle-free, online application.

"Convenience store owners value the ability to match their cash flow with their sales and profits. Gilbarco, by enabling attractive, low-interest rates, helps retailers upgrade their gas pumps and their customers' experience at their site," said Chris Santy, President, Patriot Capital. "With many retailers implementing EMV at the pump in the near future, continued market interest-rate increases expected in the near future, and consumers looking to be entertained with media at the gas pump, the time to upgrade has never been better."

This program is available for orders received by November 15, 2017. Retailers using this program to upgrade their gas pumps may obtain additional financing for related costs such as installation from Patriot Capital at current market rates.
