Bleep celebrates a year of success at the Principality Stadium

Bleep UK PLC are celebrating a year of success after the deployment of 410 TS-910 touch screen terminals at the Principality Stadium (formerly the Millennium Stadium) in Cardiff just over a year ago.

The Bleep EPOS system was installed across all of the hospitality kiosks at the 74,500 capacity National stadium of Wales and has successful served and refreshed hundreds of thousands of sports and concert goers over the past 12 months. The stadium is the home to the Wales national rugby union team, has played host to the Wales national football team and stages numerous other high profile concerts and events, averaging around 1.3 million visitors per year.

Due to its compact footprint, the TS-910 touch screen terminal, designed with the stadia and arena market in mind, was selected as an ideal fit for the kiosks of the Principality Stadium, with each terminal featuring built in laser scanners, interactive POS Media video displays, integrated Ingenico payment devices and thermal receipt printers. The latest in payment technologies are accepted to ensure quick transactions, such as contactless and the Apple Pay mobile wallet. All terminals report back to Bleep’s cloud based Web Back Office, allowing for live, real time, sales and stock information from any device, in any location.

Reliability, customer experience and fast transactions were an essential requirement for the project, while also providing a positive customer experience for customers, which was enhanced by the customer facing POS Media video displays streaming video content in the rear of each terminal. Transaction times were kept to a minimum with sales being processed quickly and efficiently, even during peak times, through direct integration between the till and the card machine, with payments processed in as little as 3 seconds when using Contactless.

Bleep have enjoyed significant growth in the stadia industry in recent times, triggered by their strength in supplying leading events after the London 2012 Olympic Games and FIFA 2014 World Cup and also, successfully deploying hospitality solutions for Tottenham Hotspur FC and MK Dons. Successfully supplying the Principality Stadium highlights this further, as the business targets further growth in the UK stadia sector.

Managing Director of Bleep, Gordon Bolton, said, “Installing a permanent EPOS solution at our first National Stadium is a huge honour, especially one which holds such a vast and varied range of events like the Principality Stadium. The solution we have provided had to cope with being out of use for long periods, but used intensively during events, something which our TS-910 terminal was designed especially for. We are delighted that after hundreds of thousands customers and one year later, we are only just beginning our relationship with this impressive venue.”
