Proud Galleries adopts pointOne EPoS

Cardiff UK 29th June 2009 – pointOne, a leading supplier of EPoS (electronic point of sale) technology has supplied Proud Galleries, one of Europe’s most popular privately funded photographic galleries with a new EPoS solution. The new technology is expected to boost the company’s bar sales by 25%, equating to £120K in additional annual revenue.

Alex Proud, Managing Director at Proud explains the reason for the upgrade “Our unique position in the market makes us number one for photography enthusiasts, collectors, music lovers and newcomers to the field. In order to maintain this position it is paramount that that we look after our clientele and offer them superlative service whilst at the same time ensure that we are maximising our revenues.”
However, as Alex explains this was not happening, “Our incumbent EPoS system was very difficult to use, and hence very inefficient. This created long queues at the bar, and resulted in dissatisfied customers, and a negative impact on our takings. We estimate that we were losing around £10,000 per month due to an inefficient bar service”.
According to Alex Proud the new pointOne EPoS solution was selected for its ease of use with minimal staff training required. Using pointOne EPoS bar staff can input drinks orders quickly and intuitively without incurring any errors.

Proud also liked its extensive functionality and integration capabilities which enables the management team to more accurately scrutinise sales, monitor trends and calculate overall profitability.

Alex Proud comments on what the pointOne solution has delivered to Proud Galleries, "The EPoS solution from pointOne has transformed the bar efficiency and customer service at the club. The system is very visual and the staff have found it easy to operate with minimal training. We are able to view business critical information such as the daily sales figures, staff attendance, and current stock levels.”

He concludes, "The pointOne EPoS solution has delivered on all its promises. It is easy to use, yet its functionality is very sophisticated. It has also been extremely reliable. The support that pointOne has given has always been proactive, and any problem or concern that I may have has always been resolved quickly. It is the perfect solution for any business looking to increase its bar efficiency and overall profitability".

Using pointOne EPoS Proud Galleries has realised the following benefits:

• High throughput of customers at its bars
• Enhanced customer service
• Ease of use reduces training and errors
• Automated & comprehensive customer billing
