- 918 sites upgraded
- 1604 evoPOS installed
- 918 back offices installed
The average store closure time was just over 2 hours.Bob Laidlaw, Operations Director at TLM Technologies said: “We learnt many lessons on the journey, not least how to cope with 2 national lockdowns, critical stock being delayed by congestion at Felixstowe container port, new import restrictions as a result of Brexit, a global shortage of semiconductors and to top it all – the equipment earmarked for the final tranche of sites being marooned on the Ever Given in the Suez Canal! We are therefore extremely proud that we still delivered this project ahead of time and exceeded customer expectations.”Going forward, as a trusted supplier to MFG, we have begun to install the pilot phase of our evoBackOffice solution to MFG sites – this will enable them to aggregate data from all their back-office systems.Paresh Patel, IT director at MFG said: “We are delighted with the evoPOS rollout across our entire estate. It’s reliable with a modern user interface that needs minimal training on. It has all the functions and features we need to deliver great customer service and, at the same time, it allows us to easily control product ranging, pricing and promotions across our entire estate.”Read the full Press Release here
