Explains Moray Boyd, managing director of J2 Retail Systems: “Our Cybertill partnership is a good match. We’re always adding to our product range, using emerging technologies to make for a better user experience of EPoS and achieve a lower cost of ownership. Retail is particularly tough at present, and we believe we can help Cybertill clients run more efficient and more profitable businesses.”
Cybertill has one of the most diverse retail user bases of all the EPoS solution providers. The company’s clients span some of the UK’s biggest charity retailers and both multiple and independent retailers in many specialist trades. For Cybertill clients who are sophisticated fashion boutiques, till appearance and silent operation are important. For garden centre or bike shop clients, system durability is paramount.
Observes Ian Tomlinson, chief executive of Cybertill: “Each of our clients makes different demands of EPoS. The good thing is that J2 shares our broad presence in the retail sector, and its EPoS hardware is proven and well regarded. With J2, we can be confident that wherever we install its units they’ll fit in well and be reliable and cost-effective.”
Continues Tomlinson: “There’s no doubt that J2 tills are good-looking and have a smaller footprint than many other units. This is of real value to our independent retailer clients who need to maximise their space for merchandising and promoting the business, as it helps them de-clutter the point-of-sale area.”
Whilst Cybertill has its own hardware support partner, it is still important to the business that it supplies robust equipment. “The fact that J2 hardware is well-engineered makes it cost-effective for our customers as well as suitable for the most rugged environments.”
Ease of use is a compelling reason for selecting EPoS, as Ian Tomlinson concludes. “Our clients look for something that gives them confidence. They want to focus on serving their customers, rather than be distracted by using the till, and this is where J2 scores.”
