June 29, 2011 Broken Arrow, OK…Horizon Business Concepts and ConocoPhillips announced today the completion of a two year joint project designed to standardize and simplify dealer point-of-sale (POS) credit card processing for ConocoPhillips branded Fixed Base Operations (FBOs).
The process allows Horizon’s flagship product, TotalFBO®, to act as a single-source, single-entry POS software which will speed up the customer transaction process while providing greater accuracy. This includes the capability to process all ConocoPhillips proprietary branded cards as well as the traditional bank cards used at FBOs.
“In the past, ConocoPhillips dealers would have to enter credit card information at least twice through two different systems in order to complete a fuel sale transaction,” said George Lehmann, Vice President of Horizon Business Concepts. “Not only was this a time consuming process, it also left room for error. Now it’s just one swipe of the card through TotalFBO.”
According to Rosemary Leone, Programs Development, General Aviation for ConocoPhillips, Horizon was selected to develop the gateway because TotalFBO® is built on a stable SQL platform and incorporates an integrated accounting system.
“The consensus from our customers was that we needed to have our credit cards supported through Total FBO,” Leone explained. “It is used by a large number of our branded FBOs and can support our requirements for data security and Payment Card Industry compliance. This will make it the only integrated software solution that supports the Phillips 66 credit card deck.”
With the announcement of the ConocoPhillips gateway, TotalFBO® is now the only software program in the aviation industry capable of processing all proprietary cards for all the major oil companies.
