Wawa Chooses Radiant For POS

Radiant Systems Inc. said it has become the exclusive provider of POS systems and related technology for more than 570 Wawa stores in Pennsylvania.

Radiant has provided self-service technology for Wawa’s industry-leading foodservices for more than seven years, often deploying as many as five customer-activated terminals per site to enable consumers to quickly and accurately select orders from the retailer’s extensive menu.

Wawa’s new decision extends Radiant technology to the traditional point-of-sale area, as well as fuel controllers and above-store management software.

Key criteria in Wawa’s selection of Radiant POS included speed of service, data and credit card security, speed to market for marketing programs, system uptime and total cost of ownership, the companies said.

“Wawa is a true industry leader, defining what the convenience retail experience will look like for years to come,” said Mark Schoen, president of the global petroleum and convenience retail division at Radiant Systems.

“We are looking to improve the customer experience and grow,” said Howard Stoeckel, president and CEO at Wawa. “We view Radiant as a key enabler to these strategic initiatives.”

The Atlanta-based Radiant Systems has been providing innovative technology to the hospitality, retail, and entertainment industries for more than 20 years. Its POS hardware and software solutions have helped redefine the consumer experience in more than 100,000 restaurants, retail stores, stadiums, parks, arenas, cinemas, convenience stores, fuel centers and other customer-service venues. Radiant has offices in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
