What we offer


Our EPOS systems operate through a till point or hand-held device, like an iPad, and use software to record information about each transaction you make. The information can then be used to generate detailed reports that give you a deeper insight into trading activity.

For example, productivity can be reviewed by monitoring what time staff clock in and out of the EPOS system, and stock and inventory can be checked using data that is updated automatically following a sale.

Card Payments 

Our contactless card terminals allow you to accept card payments in multiple purchasing scenarios and provide ultimate payment flexibility while increasing the speed of your transactions.

Online Software 

Our Virtual Terminals process card payments in real-time anywhere at anytime – without significant costs or resources required.
