Gilbarco Veeder-Root (GVR), a global leader for innovative technology for convenience stores, retail and commercial fueling solutions and services, today announced that it has signed an agreement with Sonol to deploy Passport(R) X —GVR's new market leading convenience retail management software.
Sonol is a leader in the Israeli energy industry, operating a network of 240 fuel stations and 200 retail convenience stores nationwide. As part of the agreement, Sonol will provide its customers with an upgraded, first-of-its-kind service experience with GVR's Passport(R) X platform.

The platform also has various optimization solutions, including automation, multi-channel sales processes (Omnichannel), inventory management, and others that will improve the experience of store managers and station operators.
With the implementation of the Passport(R) X platform, Sonol customers will enjoy a variety of purchasing options, from loyalty and promotions plans, self-service kiosk operation, remote refueling application approval, and purchase/shipping services through Sonol's e-commerce website.
