ALPHARETTA, Ga. PDI, a global provider of enterprise resource planning, fuel pricing, supply chain logistics and marketing cloud solutions for the convenience retail and petroleum wholesale industries, is working with NCR Corp. to provide mobile payments to convenience retailers.

Touch-free payment is becoming the preferred method for consumers during the COVID-19 outbreak. This integration allows convenience retailers with the latest NCR point-of-sale (POS) to use PDI’s mobile payment capabilities for payment methods such as Visa, Mastercard, Venmo, PayPal or Automated Clearing House (ACH). PDI recently added payments to its Marketing Cloud Solutions offering after acquiring ZipLine, which specializes in ACH payment and mobile payment technology. The new product can be used to process mobile payments inside a convenience store or at the pump.

“PDI has a history of providing fit-for-purpose solutions that enable convenience retailers to deliver better experiences for their customers,” said Brian Jefferson, senior vice president and general manager of retail and marketing cloud solutions at PDI. “Our partnership with NCR is another important milestone as we continue to offer convenient and safe ways for consumers to fuel up and shop during this time.”

Atlanta-based NCR, a software and services supplier for the retail and other industries, allows customers to access these end-to-end technology services with thousands of service professionals in 160 countries.

Alpharetta, Ga.-based PDI specializes in enterprise software for convenience retailers and petroleum wholesalers. More than 150,00 customers in more than 200,000 locations worldwide use its enterprise resource planning (ERP), logistics, fuel pricing and marketing cloud solutions to provide insights. PDI also owns and operates the Fuel Rewards loyalty program.
