Since launching their first point-of-sale terminal in 1982, Verifone has been an industry leader in POS systems. While they design hardware for the hospitality and healthcare industries, they are best known for their equipment used in gas stations and convenience stores. The Ruby 2 is the latest countertop POS terminal that will serve as an integral part of a Ruby system gas station or convenience store.
The Ruby 2 POS System takes into account the unique nature of gas stations and convenience stores. In these locations, staff must handle a wide variety of transactions in a short amount of time. In addition to basic retail needs, POS systems for these locations must handle authorizations, loyalty programs, and frequently changing discounts.
Convenience stores must live up to their name by being a fast way for consumers to buy a few items. Bottlenecks at the checkout line are frustrating for both staff and customers. The technology in Ruby POS systems decreases customer turnaround times. Merchants who incorporate Ruby 2 into their POS solutions will see a boost in their customer service.
There are many POS terminals on the market. However, Ruby 2 comes with updated tech that enhances its usefulness in the gas station and convenience store industries.
Convenience stores must process many different types of items. Also, managers frequently introduce new products to meet customer needs. The customizable menu allows merchants to make changes and apply automatic discounts quickly. With 77 keys and the ability to handle up to 30 gas pumps, Ruby 2 offers flexibility and utility.
The user-friendly graphical user interface also makes it easy for staff to adapt to the new system. Convenience stores depend on fast customer turnaround. They make a profit by handling as many transactions as possible in a day. Staff confused by a new POS terminal will slow things down as they learn the new system.
With Ruby 2, staff members will quickly adopt the unit and realize its simplicity. The ease of menu customization makes it possible for management to fine-tune the performance as staff members share friction points in the checkout process.
When staff members run into an issue, Ruby POS systems include on-screen help menus and real-time alerts that simplify the troubleshooting process. As staff members adjust to the system, there will be fewer delays due to manager assistance.
Convenience stores require daily reports to keep the business running smoothly. The management tools included with Ruby 2 allow merchants to keep an eye on local inventory and see which promotions are successful.
Gas stations have unique requirements around fuel sales and inventory. A Ruby system gas station will have the tools it needs for compliance reports.
Convenience stores and gas stations are becoming more complex. What used to be a location for snacks, cold drinks, and a fill-up may now have a coffee shop or a small takeout restaurant. One of the advantages of Ruby 2 is its ability to integrate into a more extensive Verifone POS system. By using Verifone’s Commander Site Manager, a merchant can manage and receive reports from every POS unit at the location.
With integration support from an experienced team like Chetu, the system will automatically share information with the business's accounting and inventory solutions. A well-developed POS system will streamline the whole management process.
Ruby 2 is a powerful countertop POS unit that will do well in the central checkout location of a convenience store. However, as such shops grow, they will want access to other POS models.

A self-service kiosk is a payment solution that allows a business to handle more customers without increasing staff. Models like the Verifone UX100 and UX400 provide unattended options for simple transactions.
Ruby 2 is just one of several countertop terminals by Verifone. Growing businesses may need more than one unit to cover different checkout areas. An integrated approach allows the manager to track the daily progress of all units in real-time.
As a convenience store grows in complexity, it may become closer to a traditional grocery store. At this point, the POS system may shift to a multilane model. Verifone provides influential multilane card readers such as the MX870 and MX925.
Mobile payment solutions are the perfect tool for the unexpected. If there is a rush, a staff member could ease the pressure using a mobile device to check out patrons with only an item or two. The store could use a unit like the Verifone e280 to promote a special sale at the door.
The 2020 pandemic led to stores taking a flexible approach to sales. Portable POS systems like the Verifone VX690 allow customers to order items ahead and pay without ever entering a store. These devices are also helpful for sidewalk sales and outdoor promotions.
The beauty of a Verifone POS system is its ability to adapt to changing needs. The Verifone Carbon series is an advanced portable option with a dual-screen setup ideal for service stations with small cafes. The device provides flexibility for patrons by taking both card and touchless payments.
