Hello
We have first generation ovation pumps would it be smarter to do emv upgrade kitsch or get rebuilt ovation 2s with emv already installed?

If you are not having issues with your current Ovations, stay with them and get the kits, better the devil you know....

I'm in agreement , although there are hidden costs that will crop up.

I would take a close look at your QVGA displays. These are not part of the upgrade kit. Order as many as you need to make the dispensers look new.

Then look at your ppu/grade selects. How many of those are cracked and discolored?

Finally test all your receipt printers. Replace the ones that print poorly or don't print at all.

The key here is to offer to the customer what appears to be a new dispenser. Customers unconsciously notice newness, and will be compelled to return at their next fueling.

If you're branded there is most likely a program to replace your pumps at a significantly reduced price. For the price of an upgrade plus a few thousand you get new pumps and a warranty. New pumps will most likely come with Tap & Pay which is an additional cost to an upgrade to old pumps.

With the Wayne Ovation EMV kits (red boards), is it possible to the VGA screens without the media platform (so, no videos just a big bright easier to read screen)?

Yes.. but why no video? Doesn't cost you anything and gives you a better warranty.
