“IF YOUR PETROL STATION FORECOURT IS OPERATING ON TIGHT MARGINS, TRY USING THE AWARD-WINNING M.A.R.S SYSTEM TO MAXIMISE YOUR RETURNS, IMPROVE SITE EFFICIENCY AND SUCCESSFULLY TACKLE LOSSES INCLUDING MOTORIST DRIVE-OFF FUEL THEFTS”

How it works

  • M.A.R.S is a digital software solution which seamlessly interfaces with hardware including pump delivery equipment, high-resolution CCTV cameras, electronic point-of-sale shop tills and other inputs, e.g. automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) and facial recognition technology
  • M.A.R.S provides the software ‘engine’ that controls on-site systems, allowing them to operate in a genuinely integrated, holistic way – improving their operational effectiveness
  • The M.A.R.S system’s sophisticated software automatically analyses data outputs from on-site systems including pumps, store tills and site cameras to ‘flag up’ anomalies and automatically alert forecourt managers
  • M.A.R.S’ sophisticated software data patterns/mining techniques highlight trends of concern and summarise these to forecourt owners/managers using easy-to-understand ‘dashboard’ information
  • Operated in conjunction with Metro Security’s 24/7 monitoring centre, M.A.R.S applications include remote authorization of fuel for motorists using unmanned sites, as well as the monitoring of re-fuelling by commercial vehicle operators and associated health & safety checks to ensure compliance with relevant legislation.
  • The use of static and dynamic ANPR can be used to compile vehicle blacklist directories, providing automatic warnings to our control room staff for any previous offences or alerting a centralised intelligence schemes sharing such data to be alerted (e.g. the National Business Crime Solution and the British Oil Security Syndicate)
