This article reports that EC Enterprises operates 77 convenience stores--12 branded by major oil companies and the remainder under the Crown brand, with stores called Fast Fair. Based in Woodbridge, Virginia, the company installed PDI back-office software at its 12 major oil sites last year, operating with POS units including Verifone Ruby and Gilbarco G-site. When deciding to upgrade the POS units at its remaining stores, the company sought hardware and software to interface with PDI, which would be implemented throughout the rest of the chain. After comparing a few systems, the company chose to implement Radiant Systems Inc.'s P1550 terminals and POS software. Additionally, the store employees were already familiar with Radiant systems.
