Metro Security system wins innovation award
06 May, 2019

The new Metro Analytic Retail Solution (MARS), developed by Metro Security (GB) to help forecourt site operators and other high street retailers, has won a 2019 Queen's Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category.

The MARS system combines loss prevention to combat shrinkage issues, while providing forecourt operators with a range of management, operational, marketing, customer care and staff training tools that help pay for the system's installation.

The Queen's Awards for Enterprise are the most prestigious annual awards for UK businesses, recognising and celebrating business excellence across the UK.

The system has been installed by a variety of UK forecourt fuel operators at hundreds of both manned and unmanned sites, following initial trials at locations including Ron Perry & Son's sites in Hartlepool, George Hammond's service stations in Kent and Great Gas Petroleum in Ireland.

When a major car manufacturer like Ford predicts that sales of its electrified cars will outnumber petrol and diesel models by 2022, does that ring alarm bells about the possible speed of change for forecourts?
