Co-op appoints GödelTech as InControl development partner

The Co-operative Group has appointed Gödel Technologies Europe as the strategic software development partner for its EPoS solution, InControl. The system is deployed in over 4,500 UK retail outlets on 14,500 PoS units and is responsible for processing over 1.5 billion transactions per year with a value of over £200 million per week.

GödelTech will provide software development, quality assurance and project management expertise to the retailer’s software development team. Chris Sproston, head of software development at the Co-operative Group, says: “We have experienced rapid growth over the last few years and we have made efforts to ensure the quality of our in-house technologies matched the pace of our expansion. In 2009 we embarked upon the commercialisation of our award-winning PoS software, InControl Evolution, and offered it to other retailers. As a result we have seen a huge surge in demand and needed to identify a software development partner to compliment our own in-house team.”

“We required a flexible delivery model which allows us to scale development and quality assurance expertise dependent on the requirements and deadlines identified by the business and, after carrying out a period of due diligence on a number of suppliers, the Co-operative Group chose GödelTech for a number of compelling reasons,” he adds. “We pride ourselves on only working with suppliers whose values mirror our own and, with its mix of unique delivery model, team expertise, UK presence and use of high definition video conferencing for project communication, we were confident from the outset that GödelTech would be the right company for the project.”
