Gilbarco Veeder-Root will be hosting free Passport point of sale (POS) system training and also demonstrating remote diagnostics and help desk at the NACS Show, Oct. 6-8 in Atlanta, bringing key benefits of the system to the show floor.
Current Passport users can take advantage of free Passport POS training “How to operate Passport in a PA-DSS compliant world” from 8 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, Oct. 5 at the Omni Hotel CNN Center (next to Georgia World Congress Center). Seats are available on a first come, first served basis to those who pre-register at: PassportSessions@gilbarco.com or with their Gilbarco Veeder-Root distributor.
Scott Oakes, a 20-year engineer, marketer, and trainer at Gilbarco Veeder-Root, will lead the session.
Passport’s PA-DSS architecture provides new benefits to retailers, including complete segregation of all PA-DSS software modules into a single device, the Enhanced Dispenser Hub. This mitigates the impact of future PCI changes and simplifies development of future value-added POS features. The session will review the new Passport V8.02/V8.03 feature/function set and best practices for using the Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) validated POS system within a PCI compliant retail operation. Attendees will also learn what is included in the V8.02/8.03 upgrade kits and accompanying documentation.
In addition, Gilbarco Veeder-Root will bring its Passport Help Desk to NACS to demonstrate the remote diagnostics, repair and update features of the POS system. These features enable Gilbarco’s 24x7x365 Greensboro, N.C., Help Desk to support the site, usually without an on-site service call, and automate the process of updating software remotely, saving the retailer both time and money. The Help Desk will be open during NACS show hours at the Georgia World Congress Center. Gilbarco Veeder-Root will exhibit Passport at Booth 1039.
