Scheidt & Bachmann has secured a contract from the Shell International Petroleum Company, an affiliate of Royal Dutch Shell, to provide site systems software for its Global Site Systems program.

Martin Kammler, managing director of Scheidt & Bachmann, said: “Scheidt & Bachmann has been selected as one of Shell’s partners for this program. We consider this award as our customer-oriented approach and capability to deliver services to the international retail petroleum industry.”

David Moss, general manager of site systems at Shell, said: “We are pleased to announce that Scheidt & Bachmann have been awarded the contract to provide site systems software as part of Shell’s Global Site Systems program. The program will be rolled out over the next five years and will benefit a proportion of Shell’s retail estate.

Earlier in December 2008, the management of Westfield Hornsby Shopping Centre decided to introduce a Car Park Management System by Scheidt & Bachmann. More than 50 devices, i.e., entry and exit devices, barriers, automatic pay stations, were installed. The system is a combination of barcode tickets and transponder cards. The company said that short-term parkers receive a barcode ticket at the entry, while season parkers use a transponder card as access permit.

Founded in 1872, Scheidt & Bachmann develops, produces and distributes systems for parking garage, leisure park installations and stadium systems, signal technology, fare collection and petrol stations.
