Sapphire as on-site controller
At VeriFone, we have leveraged our years of experience in designing
and programming the Ruby SuperSystem to create an on-site controller
that expands on your Ruby investment. Cashiers familiar with
the easy to use Ruby console will continue to be effective in
their everyday customer service activities. Sapphire is working
in the background as the new controller, offering more com ports,
faster processing, and enhanced data storage for up to 50,000
Sapphire as web server
Powered by an Apache web server, Sapphire allows you better
and quicker access to all your sales data. You can retrieve
and manipulate Ruby data in real time from the back office or
the home office at any time from a web browser. And you have
the flexibility to create XML style sheets that show you the
information in the format you want to see it. Data is available
here, there, and everywhere with a user interface as familiar
as your home page.
Benefits at a Glance:
Data the way you want to see it using a web browser interface
Faster processing speed and enhanced data storage for 50,000
High powered device integration with RS232, LAN, and Ethernet
Additional com ports provide peripheral expandability
Easy to interface XML data for custom views or reports
High powered, mission critical device that expands your Ruby
Compatibility, and Control in an Affordable, Integrated POS Solution
The VeriFone Ruby SuperSystem® combines card processing,
fuel dispensing, dispenser card reader (DCR) control, and ECR
functions to meet the needs of fast-paced petroleum/convenience-store
operations—where quick customer turnaround, easy pump control,
and accurate record keeping are imperative.
The Ruby is compatible with a wide range of pumps, allowing you
to bring it onto most sites without special accommodations. With
easy-to-understand fuel icons and programmable PLU keys, the Ruby
can simplify sales procedures and expedite service at all your
locations. Its built-in training mode reduces the time and cost
of bringing new employees up to speed. And its specialized reporting
and tracking features help you better manage your business operations.
Fuel Functionality: One System Fits All
Because Ruby is pump independent, you can use it at virtually
all your sites. It interfaces with major electronic dispensers
and dispenser card readers — including Bennett, Dresser-Wayne,
Gilbarco, and Tokheim/Schlumberger RPS.
Better Control, Better Customer Service
A single control point for fuel sales, Ruby supports both preset
and prepay fuel sales. It electronically tracks up to 18 fueling
positions on its standard icon display—or as many as 32
positions with an optional icon display. To authorize fueling
and keep the traffic moving, your cashiers simply press a single
key. And a quick glance verifies the status of one pump or every
pump where money is due.
Network and Payment Flexibility
Ruby interfaces with a wide range of petroleum card networks,
including those that communicate with independent oil companies.
This lets you standardize operations for a variety of stations—whether
they pump major or independent gasoline brands. And Ruby fully
supports and speeds transactions for major oil-branded network
cards and fleet fuel cards, as well as major credit and debit
(ATM) cards. It also lets you accept a variety of other payment
types, including cash, checks, coupons, and lotto tickets.
Ruby keeps a running total of cash collected, alerting the cashier
when it's time to make a safe drop. So there's never a surplus
of currency in the cash drawer.
Single-Key Price Lookup
Price lookup is easier than ever. Ruby's unique pop-up menu keys
link multiple PLUs to individual keys, placing more PLUs at the
cashier's fingertips. And preset, pre-priced "hot" keys
provide one-touch entry for your most popular items. Ruby also
lets the cashier suspend, then resume, a transaction while the
customer retrieves "one last item." In between, the
cashier can process other sales, keeping the line moving and customers
Open Systems Architecture
Ruby's software creates an open architecture environment, allowing
Ruby to talk with a variety of back-office PCs and remote hosts.
Communicating with your back-office systems, it quickly consolidates
sales data into integrated management reports, producing a comprehensive
summary of a station's activities. Ruby also allows you to download
price and product changes and similar information. As a result,
Ruby provides better control over operations and saves hours of
paperwork. For managers, that means less time in the office and
more time with customers.
A Printer for all Reasons
The Ruby includes the high-speed TMU-950 MultiStation Printer,
which works with standard-width receipt paper. The TMU-950 can
validate checks, print customer receipts or vouchers, and generate
a variety of printed reports that help track the store's sales.
