BELLEVILLE, Ill. — MotoMart convenience stores has completed the rollout of technology provider Acumera’s C-Store Connections package.
Part of family-owned FKG Oil Co., MotoMart is based in Belleville, Ill., and operates 78 convenience stores in six states in the Midwest: Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin and Minnesota. According to Matt Mueller, systems administrator of MotoMart, the company engaged Acumera to enhance network reliability and uptime and improve remote support services.
“Reliable and secure connectivity for payment card processing is a critical part of our business, and PCI compliance is more important than ever before,” said Mueller. “Acumera not only helps ensure security with its PCI Tools solution, but also delivers the dependable connections and troubleshooting services we need to keep our operations running smoothly.”
The C-Store Connections package is a comprehensive network management solution designed specifically for the needs of multi-site convenience store operators. It includes integration of the Acumera Merchant Gateway perimeter security device at each site, as well as access to the AcuVigil dashboard and Apps for Your Network services.
In addition to the C-Store Connections package, MotoMart is implementing the Dual WAN Failover app, which provides high availability wide area network (WAN) connectivity for convenience stores by automatically switching to a secondary connection whenever occasional interruptions in the primary connection occur.
“In order for convenience stores to maximize uptime and revenue, they need a solid backup system,” said Tom Yemington, Acumera’s vice president of sales and marketing. “The Dual WAN Failover app gives MotoMart the backup solution needed to reduce equipment downtime and maintain visibility at all locations.”
Austin, Texas-based Acumera is a leading provider of trusted connections services for convenience stores, gas stations and petroleum wholesalers. Its network management services, tools and applications give multi-site retailers security, visibility and connectivity to support operations management.
