The success story of island based company ICRTouch continued last Friday (3rd October 2014), as ICRTouch held a gala ball at Cowes Yacht Haven, celebrating the sale of their 50,000th EPoS system licence.
Many of the invited guests were from ICRTouch's extensive network of EPoS distributors from across England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, and came to the Isle of Wight to celebrate the unrivalled 50,000 licence milestone. CEO Colin Ringer emotionally and proudly boasted during his memorable speech, “I remember back in 2001 when I was up at Casio, they put their arm around me and said, “Stick with us and we’ll sell 20,000.” 20,000? It’s 50,000 now.”
Through the night ICRTouch used the opportunity to show off their market-leading software, creating a revolutionary EPoS system at the bar where each customer had an account card worth £25 which could be topped up online without the need for a cash machine or credit card terminal. Gaming-style achievements were unlocked through the night, such as JagerMaster (first to buy a Jagerbomb) and RepeatOffender (ten trips to the bar) with rewards going to the customer’s account, further demonstrating the unparalleled versatility and flexibility of ICRTouch's flagship Touchpoint Touch screen Till systems.
ICRTouch also showed a live sales map from live data hitting the servers throughout the night, powered by the recently launched TouchOffice Web, a cloud based version of ICRTouch’s established back office software. The stats this software displayed definitely impressed the resellers. ICRTouch’s longest serving employee James Johnson said during his speech “To date we’ve recorded a total of 13 million sales transactions with a value of over £132million from around 1000 tills collected and that’s in less than 10 months.”
With a packed house, Juicebox, a professional function band from the Isle of Wight, put on a great performance and get the dance floor full of merry EPoS resellers enjoying the night. “I had a great time. It was a pleasure to be able to celebrate such a great achievement with so many others associated with ICRTouch.” said Paul Weller of Gane Data Ltd, an ICRTouch Reseller.
