The problem to be solved with this app is the daily auditing of the presence and condition of security labels applied to gas pumps (fuel dispensers). By validating that the correct security label is in place on the fuel dispenser and has not been tampered with, the store operator confirms that a skimming device has not been placed inside the pump. The daily inspection process also encourages the operator to look at each fuel dispenser for other evidence of tampering, such as an external skimmer or camera.
The app has two main functions:
1. “Verify Labels” – you scan a security label and say that it looks OK, or, if not, record information and potentially a picture about what you encountered.
2. “Register Labels” – the initial entry of the security labels by bar code scanning, entering their physical location, and the app capturing their GPS coordinates.
The app captures events (through a web service) related to the tag registration and auditing.
