Dresser Wayne® Fusion™ Forecourt System Wins Best New Product Award in CSP Magazine’s 5th Annual Contest
Convenience Retailers Name the Fusion Forecourt System Tops in Hardware Category.
AUSTIN, Texas (October 21, 2009) – Dresser Wayne, a global innovator of fuel dispensers and technologies, today announced the Fusion Forecourt System has been awarded the CSP Retailer Choice Best New Product Award. The Fusion Forecourt System, designed to help retailers manage fuel dispensers from multiple vendors, POS systems, tank management systems, price signs, car washes and other peripherals, was chosen as the winner in the Hardware category.
The 5th Annual CSP Retailer Choice Best New Products Contest recognizes outstanding new products for use in convenience stores that show uniqueness and groundbreaking advancement in a product line. Voted on by convenience retailers, the Fusion Forecourt System was chosen from among 120 finalists in 11 categories and 40 subcategories.
“It is a tremendous honor for Dresser Wayne to be recognized by CSP,” said Dan Harrell, vice president of Dresser Wayne System and Payments Products. “The Fusion Forecourt System has been a valuable product for our retail partners, who are more focused than ever on driving profitability and running seamless operations. With Fusion, fuel retailers can now make data-driven decisions about fuel dispensers, tank management systems, electronic price signs and car washes. This increased visibility makes it possible for owners to make a range of operational decisions from one central command point.” Dresser Wayne’s Fusion Forecourt System makes operations management simpler because it replaces multiple devices needed to run a site, decreasing the cost of maintenance and reducing potential points of failure. Because Fusion can use existing wiring to enable TCP/IP connection, system downtime and deployment costs are also significantly lowered. The Fusion Forecourt System is modular and upgradeable, helping future-proof a site investment. Businesses can enable additional functionality as their needs grow, new technologies are made available or new regulations are mandated – in most cases without installing additional equipment.
Dresser Wayne’s Dispenser Secure Access was also named a Best New Product Finalist for 2009 in the Software category. Dispenser Secure Access is an alarm-based system that helps protect fuel inventory and financial data by discouraging unauthorized fuel dispenser entry. This dispenser security system requires a passcode for entry and triggers an alarm when unauthorized access is detected. Optional remote monitoring features send alerts to off-site personnel for immediate action and also provide reporting capabilities.
