Organic café group selects H.I.T Solutions to centrally manage menu, stock and pricing information for its 20 existing and 15 planned outlets

Cardiff, UK, 4th September 2007 - EPoS technology specialist, H.I.T Solutions has been chosen by The Natural Café, (the trading name of the The Natural Retail Company), to supply their pointOne Electronic Point of Sale (EPoS) solution to all of their existing and planned café outlets to centrally manage and update prices, stock and menus on a ‘real-time’ basis. Predominantly located in the South-East, the The Natural Café specialises in serving natural and organic foods that are available to eat-in or takeaway.

Founder and CEO at The Natural Retail Company, Paul Currie, comments on the selection decision, “Information in retail is absolutely crucial. To manage our aggressive growth plans it was essential that we could centralise and distribute all key information such as menu changes, special offers, and pricing through a single source, in a simple and efficient way. With the pointOne EpoS solution from H.I.T Solutions we can achieve this without the need to visit each outlet or rely on inefficient manual methods. pointOne EpoS was the only system that met our technical, operational and budgetary requirements.”

Another key feature of the pointOne EpoS system is that it can be accessed remotely. For example, management personnel working from home or other locations can access the system via the web, so they can check on the daily sales figures for any café, staff attendance, and/or stock control.

The Natural Café currently has 20 cafés using the pointOne EPoS system and plans to roll it out to a further 15 outlets within the next 12 months.

Currie concludes, “The pointOne EPoS solution has been a great success and we plan to install the system at all of our new cafés. It has made a major difference to our business allowing us to identify both the strengths and weaknesses of each outlet and act accordingly”.
