Tokheim OASE

OASE

TSG’s Online Authorisation and Switching Environment (OASE), helps facilitate fuel and bank card payments at the EPOS. It removes the complexity of diverse key management and protocol implementation from the site and brings it to a central switch point. One single security scheme (based on 3DES DUKPT) and one single protocol (based on IFSF) is all it takes to connect a Fuel POS site with OASE – and from that point, you have the ability to accept all cards. From OASE, the transactions are then switched to the relevant bank and fuel card acquirers in accordance with their specific security and protocol guidelines, or they are directly authorised by OASE. This solution provides a huge benefit to our customers as, once established, it becomes very easy to accept additional cards on their sites.

OASE as bank card switch

OASE processes all major bank card schemes, including Visa, MasterCard and American Express. With OASE, our customers have the benefit of being able to select their preferred bank acquirer with the most beneficial card acquiring fees and the best level of service. A strong value proposition is achieved by aggregating the transactions from multiple countries with the same acquirer, which provides our customers with the required ‘buying power’ for negotiating and achieving lower acquiring fees. OASE complies with the relevant bank standards, is compliant with PCI DSS and offers a superior level of service to our customers.

OASE as fuel card switch

Through a multitude of secure online links with fuel card issuers, OASE provides the most complete fuel card acceptance solution in the industry. It is simple for any service station to add additional card acceptance to its network, thereby increasing revenue. Where fuel card issuers are concerned, the Tokheim Fuel POS installed base offers the quickest way to achieve Europe-wide acceptance of their cards, e.g. by creating cross-acceptance deals with networks of service stations.

OASE as end-host

OASE also provides a fully managed service for the online processing of fuel cards. This reduces the high level of investment involved for fleet card issuers when setting up a secure online infrastructure. OASE offers an attractive alternative.
