P97 Networks announced at TechEd in Las Vegas a technology agreement with SAP, in which P97 will integrate the P97 PetroZone® Mobile Commerce Platform with SAP® Vehicles Network running on SAP HANA® Cloud Platform for the Internet of Things. When used together with SAP Vehicles Network, the P97 solution will help enable mobile payments and the delivery of location-based offers including fuel, parking, food, and consumer packaged goods to consumer’s automobile telematics systems or mobile devices.

P97 will leverage its extensive convenience retail and fuels marketing site system integration and cloud based mobile commerce capabilities to enable mobile payments and the delivery of location-based offers to consumer’s automobile telematics systems or mobile devices. When used with SAP Vehicles Network, the P97’s PetroZone® Mobile Commerce Platform will help enable customers to integrate with retail site systems including mobile payment capabilities, digital marketing, loyalty programs, and customer reward systems.

In working with SAP to help enable a connected world for oil companies and ecosystem partners, P97 is charting new territory by connecting with the Internet of Things (IoT), telematics, and mobile commerce. While mobile payments and digital offers are already part of P97’s mobile commerce user-experience, it now provides merchants and suppliers with access to the SAP Vehicle Network. Based on SAP HANA Cloud Platform, SAP Vehicles Network is helping cross-industry businesses to accelerate their product delivery and establish new business models and revenue streams.

“We are excited to accelerate the digital transformation of the fueling, parking and quick service restaurant industries by providing a marketplace to help simplify the merchant and consumer experience,” said Gil Perez, SVP IoT & Customer Innovation, General Manager Connected Vehicles at SAP. “SAP Vehicles Network harnesses the power of SAP HANA® Cloud Platform for the Internet of Things to offer a simpler and more secure set of cloud micro services to help app developers, merchants or automotive OEMs consume and generate new revenue streams.”

“We look forward to bringing our expertise in mobile commerce and site integration for retail fuels to this collaboration with SAP,” said Donald Frieden, President and CEO of P97.

P97’s PetroZone solution provides retail merchants with a 360° mobile marketing and commerce platform to enable mobile payments, digital offers, customer rewards and integration with loyalty hosts. With P97’s mobile payment processing application (MPPA) based on the Conexxus industry standards for mobile payments, oil companies and retail merchants can deploy “branded” mobile apps in the app stores so consumers can take advantage of loyalty programs, discounts, and frequent shopper reward programs. P97’s mobile payment applications provide consumers with an easier and faster onboarding process, including the registration of payment credentials and loyalty cards through an isolated and secure channel connected with the leading mobile wallet providers. With a fully tokenized mobile commerce platform, P97 provides the highest level of security and support for EMV (Euro, MasterCard, and Visa) transactions.
