GPM Investments Selects TNS Services for 194 Sites

GPM Investments has selected Transaction Network Services, a provider of data communications, to provide the FusionPoint solution for a total of 194 Fas Mart and Shore Stop convenience stores across the mid-Atlantic region.

According to Transaction Network Services (TNS), FusionPoint is a managed service that streamlines in-store networking and enables data from diverse store applications to flow through broadband connection to different end-points.

By taking advantage of FusionPoint, Fas Mart and Shore Stop not only simplify store communications but can also rely on the security and performance of the TNS PCI-DSS certified network and 24x7x365 help-desk services with live real-time support. TNS also provides all necessary network components and communications hardware essential for this application, said TNS.

Barry Khrosrophanah, vice president of IT for GPM Investments, said: "We have been a TNS customer since 2005 and over the years we have continued to be impressed with the level of service provided. TNS's FusionPoint solution fits us because it allows our stores to run multiple applications through one secure connection."
