Acumera is now a preferred provider for CHS Inc. POS Protect+ program

AUSTIN, Texas, June 21, 2022 — Acumera — a leading provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions for edge computing, network operations, visualization and security — today announced that it is now certified by CHS Inc. as a preferred payment solution for convenience stores through its POS Protect+ program.

Acumera, a managed network service provider (MNSP), will provide CHS Inc. dealers with network support, outage detection and port-level visibility of network devices through Acumera’s proprietary AcuVigil™ dashboard. In addition, Acumera will deploy its catalog of security, monitoring, analytics and PCI compliance tools. Acumera’s edge computing workloads help to reduce the number of third-party connections and devices at stores.

“Adding Acumera to our product offerings has given our service team a host of new tools and utilities to enhance our customer experience. Additional services like Verifone Commander backup, secure POS connectivity with AcuLink™ remote access, and visibility through the AcuVigil dashboard have greatly enhanced our technicians’ ability to be responsive to our customers’ needs,” said Bob McDonald, Director of Technical Resources, Minnesota Petroleum Service. Beth Anderson-Bandemer, Store Manager, Duquette General Store, a client of Minnesota Petroleum Service, added “Acumera and Minnesota Petroleum Service have been easy to work with. Their team has been very responsive and everything has been working great.”

Acumera’s VP of Convenience Store Sales, Dan Gleeson, added “Acumera is proud to expand our relationship with CHS and the POS Protect+ program. We are dedicated to providing unparalleled support to c-store customers with hardware and software solutions that provide high reliability, visibility, security, and ease of use. Acumera’s 24x7x365 network operations center support and AcuVigil dashboard access will enable proactive monitoring and real-time support to speed time-to-resolution, reduce downtime, and protect store revenue.”

Core benefits provided by Acumera for the POS Protect+ program will include:

  • Improved site uptime with proactive 24x7x365 network operations center support
  • Enhanced visibility with AcuVigil dashboard access
  • Keep sites up and running with automatic cellular failover service
