FatFace selects EPoS system for new US stores
Written by Anthony Strzalek
FatFace has extended its international footprint after successfully opening six US stores with a new electronic point of sale (EPoS) system from UK-based software firm Eurostop.
FatFace needed a new EPoS system which was suitable not only for international trading, but compliant with US state tax laws, for the opening of its six east coast stores.
After “extensive research” in the retail systems market, FatFace selected Eurostop’s EPoS touch solution. EPoS touch is used in store at till point and each location is fully connected to the company’s global stock inventory via an estate manager for companywide reporting.
Simon Ratcliffe, infrastructure director at FatFace, said: “As a business moving into a new market, we needed an IT partner with international experience, that understood the local tax and trading legislation, and could move fast. Eurostop was the only provider who had a tried and tested solution for the US market advanced enough for our growth plans, and most importantly, could also meet our tight deadlines.”
“It was really simple to connect the new software to our existing systems. Eurostop’s APIs are really easy to use and well supported.”
