Gilbarco Veeder-Root Introduces Passport Express Lane Self-Checkout System for Convenience Stores

The seamless solution is designed to increase efficiency and reduce c-store lines

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Gilbarco Veeder-Root is proud to introduce Passport Express Lane, a self-checkout system designed to seamlessly integrate with the modern convenience store environment. Express Lane is the latest addition to Gilbarco Veeder-Root’s Passport POS Suite of c-store solutions and is now available with Passport Version 12.02.

Express Lane is designed to help c-stores run more efficiently and enhance the consumer experience by offering more checkout options. With retailers moving toward frictionless solutions, Express Lane keeps convenience stores convenient by allowing consumers to pay quickly and ultimately reduce lines at checkout counters. For managers and c-store employees, Express Lane can alleviate staffing issues, especially during times of low unemployment rates and fewer job applicants. 

Gilbarco Veeder-Root’s new self-checkout system also helps increase consumer loyalty by appealing to the growing number of self-service shoppers who want to control their checkout experience without compromising on security concerns.  With the Express Lane Control Console, cashiers can quickly monitor and support consumers during their transactions from close proximity behind the counter. Express Lane also integrates seamlessly into the passport ecosystem. Passport users will notice familiar operations with the same reporting, interface, and support mechanisms.  

“Convenience stores are unique retail spaces that require special design to meet the needs of business owners and customers,” Chris Whitley, VP of North America sales and marketing said. “Express Lane is the result of countless hours spent listening to customers’ needs and concerns and working with them to continue to shine a light on blind spots in the c-store environment. We think this new solution will be a game changer for business owners, c-store managers and employees, and ultimately the consumer.”

Express Lane offers a custom look and feel to make the self-checkout area fit naturally with the rest of the store. The solution supports the latest payment options including credit, debit, and contactless. Other key features include scanned items, speed keys and item entry. Express Lane also complements Express Ordering, Gilbarco Veeder-Root’s foodservice solution. Consumers simply scan their Express Ordering ticket at the at the Express Lane kiosk for a seamless shopping experience.
