UNITED KINGDOM – June 2016 – Bleep UK PLC announced today that it has supplied an EPOS solution of 250 terminals for the retail stores at the 15th UEFA European Football Championship, the UEFA EURO 2016 tournament in France.
The Bleep EPOS system has been installed in the official merchandise stores at 10 stadiums in 9 cities across France, in and around the stadia and fan zones for the duration of the tournament, from the 10th June until the 10th July. These stores sell official and licensed goods, such as official match shirts, scarves footballs and other merchandise to the estimated 2.5 million spectators expected inside the stadiums during the 51 matches.
Following on from successful installs at a number of high profile sporting events since the London 2012 Olympic Games, including the Open Championship, the 2014 World Cup, and the 2015 Rugby World Cup, Bleep have secured this contract in what will be another busy summer of global events. Bleep are deploying their award winning EPOS systems at prestigious events across the globe, starting with the Isle of Wight Festival, Roskilde Festival and culminating with the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
The robust and reliable Bleep TS-910 all in one EPOS terminal was selected for the multiple retail stores at each venue and this model has been chosen due to its compact footprint and space saving design. Each terminal will feature a built in thermal receipt printer, laser scanner, interactive POS Media customer video displays and integrated Ingenico payment devices, to minimise the required space without compromising on functionality. 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.
Quick, accurate and secure transactions are an essential requirement, while also providing a positive customer experience for shoppers, which is derived from the customer facing video displays streaming video content in the rear of each terminal. Transaction times will be 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 payment methods and the new mobile wallet payment system, Apple Pay.
Bleep UK PLC Chairman, John Wellman said, “Bleep really have done the double with the World Cup back in 2014 and now Europe’s premier international football tournament. Our success in supplying sporting events over the past few years speaks for itself and this is the reason why Bleep are continually approached to supply these leading events.
