Garden centre installs ePOS

Knights Garden Centres have appointed NedFox to roll-out a new cloud-based ePOS system.

Owner of the Surrey garden centres Richard Knight said: "There were a lot of providers to choose from, but the fact that the system is cloud-based and therefore can be totally integrated into the new multi-channel sales platform was the deciding factor. Initially we contacted NedFox just to get a price comparison, as we were told that the set-up costs were substantially lower than conventional server based systems. When we saw the system in action, we were bowled over by the range of modules that can be incorporated as well as the ease to work with third parties, fully integrated into the solution. To top it all, the set-up costs were indeed significantly lower than conventional suppliers."

Martin Tank, director of NedFox said: "We are delighted with our new client and it is great to see the level of enthusiasm from the Knights team. We are very happy with the reception we have been given by the UK and the signs are very positive for another great Glee this year."

The system will be installed over the next couple of weeks and will operate both centres (Nags Hall and Betchworth) with a total of 10 check-outs and five hand-held terminals, one for every manager in the centre.

NedFox will exhibit again at Glee (Birmingham NEC 12-14 September) this year (Hall 17/V55).
