Acquisition will ‘supercharge’ The EPoS Bureau’s offer to indies
The EPoS Bureau has said its acquisition, by the ClearCourse group, will only serve to improve the company’s offer to existing independent retail customers – as well as allow it to offer services to retailers with a smaller footprint.
Founder Nigel Bogle told FFD that accepting the approach from the London-based group of technology companies was a “no brainer”, given the capabilities it would offer.
He added that he would remain at the helm of the Northern Ireland-based business and it would be continuing to focus on the independent food retail market. It already provides point-of-sale and back-office systems to some 200 farm shops, delis, cheesemongers and butchers.
Bogle said that joining the group means that the company will be able to keep existing customers “ahead of the curve”, and it would also allow The EPoS Bureau to cater to smaller delis that it wouldn’t have previously had systems for.
“ClearCourse has payment systems, loyalty systems, membership schemes and other products and services that we will be able to offer to our clients,” said Bogle. “Being part of ClearCourse will supercharge our business.”
