In 2008, Worrall Thompson and associate David Wilby took over the business as it was, but they were not confident that the previous IT system was up to the standard of the business. They decided to look for an upgraded EPOS system, offering the customers a better experience through enhanced services like promotions and communication. They also wanted this system to provide them with accurate information about stock movements, to inform decisions regarding quantities and prices, and therefore, to help avoid potential loss due to over- or under-order.
After an evaluation of the EPOS systems market, the two partners leant towards an Octepos system. We decided we would go with someone who knew retail. Many EPOS systems are tailored only toward the hospitality market; the restaurant ones are very different and dont cater for things such as bar code reading, asserts Wilby.
To meet their requirements, Octepos configured an EPOS system dedicated to Windsor Larder, combining three modules; stock, account and customer loyalty modules. Wilby seems very happy with it; One of the key benefits of the software is how easy it is to customise to the needs of our business. We can make changes ourselves to the product and pricing menus; thereby helping to maintain a proactive response to market conditions and the requirements of our customers.
Next to that, Octepos also provided the hardware side, including award-winning Toshiba ST-A10 terminals with fully configured scales, printers, scanners and card readers all included. Furthermore, Octepos support is a mandatory part of the package. Totally satisfied by it, Wilby comments We make small tweaks, and then when we are unsure how to do something more intricate within the system we call the Octepos Support Team. Support has been very good; whenever we have needed anything done it has been done straight away.
