New Till and Software Features Will Support Gas Stations and the Percentage of a Penny

Minneapolis, MN — APG Cash Drawer, LLC and pcAmerica are proud to announce their partnership to support a growing need in the convenience store industry. APG now offers a till to accommodate currency less than $.01 and pcAmerica, in conjunction with APG, has released software updates to reflect this growing trend.   

“Gas stations continue to offer gallons at fractions of a cent (ex. $3.55 and 9/10),” stated David Gosman, CEO at pcAmerica.  “We are always looking for ways to meet the constantly evolving needs of retailers.  Rounding issues often cause frustration for customers and can also hurt the bottom line for retailers. Our software updates are a logical progression in an effort to make transactions more efficient.”

“Retailers are looking for the latest technologies that can improve the overall customer experience,” affirmed Mark Olson, President at APG Cash Drawer. “Station attendants can now tender fractions of a penny. This saves money for businesses and customers overall.  Our innovative, coin cup till allows retailers to store this much needed currency in a separate, weighable slot. This allows cashiers to make change for these transactions faster than ever.”

The new software solution from pcAmerica now allows cashiers to tender to the tenth of a cent to cut losses and increase margins for retailers.  “Many gas stations offer discounts when you pay by cash,” stated Olson. “C-store owners are looking for a way to capitalize and cash in on the missed opportunity to collect exact change.  Now with our new till, and pcAmerica’s reporting software, those fractions of a cent are adding up in a big way. This new POS solution helps retailers overcome these currency obstacles, and in the end, be more successful.”

On April Fools day, APG and pcAmerica are offering their bundled solution free to gas station owners across America who sell large volumes of diesel fuel and who have a higher percentage of cash transactions. pcAmerica’s new c-store software, functional on both iPhone and Android platforms, has been installed in Forbes’ top 100 trucker stations nationwide. “At this time our software will only process fractions of a penny,” said Gosman. “But, keep an eye out for our future updates where we will implement fractions of the nickel.”
