According to a number of industry websites, and implementation consultants, one of the biggest problems with technology implementations is that the retailer cannot choose the best product for their specific needs because of roadblocks with integrations to existing and new systems. Instead they are forced to use one vendor for all solutions. This works well in some aspects of the business, but is usually completely off base for other facets of the business. The Integrated Petroleum Solutions alliance effectively eliminates this problem by bringing together the best solutions available in a cooperative spirit where retailers can choose the best solution for their needs with zero integration concerns.

"Our collective solutions deliver a combination of operational quality and financial value to our clients that compliment AJB's services," stated Bohdan Myroniw, Director of Business Development for AJB. "We deliver high quality credit solutions in the retail setting, and we support Integrated Petroleum Solutions. This is the most complete offering of technology available to retailers."

“In today’s retail business world the detailed sales transaction is a very complex piece of data required to move thru many systems, i.e. debit/credit, Back Office, Home Office, then feeding Corporate Accounting and Reporting Systems” observed industry veteran Reg Kennerty. “Retailers who come to NACStech looking for solutions to business information flow and controls traditionally are presented a “vertical solution” or a combination of vertical solutions. This introduces a new problem in that the Retailer now becomes the “integrator” of solutions for his business. For the first time, there is a “total horizontal” of solutions to capture complete data handling from start to finish for the retailer, and now the vendor is the “integrator” instead of the retailer.”

“We are excited to be working with some of the best names in the industry" added Kennon Mullen, Vice President of FuelLogix. "Our alliance solves a real industry problem by breaking down the walls previously associated with software integrations. Convenience retail technology finally has solid options for complete POS to Financial solutions without being forced to buy one of the one-size-fits-all software systems."
