InComm, a leading payments technology company, today announced it has been named Vendor of the Year by 7-Eleven, Inc., the largest chain in the convenience-retailing industry. This is the second time in the past three years that 7-Eleven has recognized InComm for its innovative products and services, which deliver a robust payment experience to 7-Eleven® customers.
InComm has supported 7-Eleven’s prepaid program for more than 15 years. In 2018, the companies launched auto-replenishment, a process to help stores maintain their inventory by automatically shipping cards based on sales volume.
“InComm continues to recognize the specific financial needs of 7-Eleven customers, developing and improving products to meet those needs,” said Sean Thompson, 7-Eleven senior vice president of merchandising. “Most recently, we developed a process that dramatically improved the replenishment of their products, helping us improve our in-stock position and satisfy more customers. As one of our most responsive and innovative vendors, InComm continues to raise the bar. We are proud to recognize them a second time as a best-in-class vendor.”
In addition, the company implemented the host-to-host (H2H) payment solutions, an update and integration of the stores’ POS system, enabling it to support InComm’s barcode scan activation, as well as PIN-on-receipt products and real-time replenishment for wireless products. This continuing collaboration has helped 7-Eleven achieve significant cost savings and sales growth in 2018.
“Our ongoing commitment is to be customer-obsessed, challenge the status quo and be an accountable vendor” said Jerry Cutler, InComm senior vice president of sales. “We would like to thank 7-Eleven for their support, and we look forward to continuing our collaboration to bring their customers the best payment experience possible.”
