The annual ICRTouch Partner Network awards were held last Friday (13/01/17), celebrating another year of excellence from the nationwide network of partners that provide and support the ICRTouch product suite.
ICRTouch had yet another incredible year in 2016 thanks to the hard work from it's Partner Network, shipping well over 10,000 licences and TouchOffice Web reaching the milestone of processing £2,000,000,000 of sales through the revolutionary cloud-based back office software. To celebrate the succeses in 2016, the annual iTouchies were presented last week to honour the excellence of the ICRTouch Partner Network. Below we take a look at the winners and why they are deserving of winning their awards.
Install of the year - Silverstone - Gardiff Epos
Gardiff Epos won the award for install of the year, with their install of Silverstone in time for the 2016 Formula 1 Grand Prix. Gardiff installed TouchPoint terminals and Sage Pay EFT solutions throughout the venue, which needed to take seamless transactions wirelessly via WiFi.
Gardiff Epos had their top staff and Engineers on hand to assist the staff with the new system during their first extremely high profile day using it.
The management team could easily keep track of sales in real-time throughout the event. They are now able to run historical reports with their own user defined tags to filter weekly revenue and stock comparison reports.
ICRTouch have had a vast collection of case studies sent in this year from our partners carrying out fantastic installs around the globe, take a look at our case studies page for more.
Newcomer of the year - E.B.M
This year has seen the ICRTouch partner network grow even further with new partners across the globe reselling ICRTouch EPoS software.
E.B.M. are one of the new ICRTouch partners and have begun promoting and representing the ICRTouch brand, as well as offering its full extensive product suite, including TouchPoint, TouchOffice, TouchOffice Web, PocketTouch and TouchKitchen.
TouchPoint Skin of the year - Impact Epos
ICRTouch's Partner Network is choc-full of till masters who just love to prod and play with TouchPoint's fully flexible skin. From this, we see a lot of pretty designs of TouchPoint throughout each year which ICRTouch like to recognise.
This year's winner for TouchPoint skin of the year was Impact Epos.
Website of the year - nexpos.co.uk
What gives the ICRTouch product suite it's character, is the many partners and their each individual efforts to show off the ICRTouch brand and the products they are able to provide and support. An effective website is vital to reaching out and attracting new customers, which our Partners realise. With hundreds of partners across the globe, this award can become quite competitive, resulting in attractive, easy-to-use, informative websites.
Nexpos won the website of the year award for a variety of reasons such as clear consistent branding, appealing design & aesthetics, and ease for potential customers to find their favourite ICRTouch products. Why not see the excellence of this website for yourself and visit nexpos.co.uk.
Marketing campaign of the year - ICRScotland & Alliance Till Systems
ICRTouch like to celebrate the marketing efforts put in by the partner network, as it lets customers know just how accessible ICRTouch partners are throughout the UK. Wherever you are, there is likely to be an ICRTouch partner within 20 minutes of where you are, so there is no reason why any business in the UK should miss out on enhancing their business.
We cannot say enough good things about ICRScotland and Alliance Till Systems, who worked together this year attending a trade show to represent the entire ICRTouch Partner Network. Taking advantage by waving the well-known ICRTouch banner, they showcased what ICRTouch products can offer customers by providing demonstrations of the software at their striking stand, capturing the interest of business owners and turning them into life-long customers of ICRTouch.
Forum user of the year - Rob0411
To ensure our partners are able to provide top-level support to all their customers ICRTouch provide private training for every partner and a technical support department. However, what you may not know, is ICRTouch have an internal partner forum for all the engineers and tech-whizzes in the EPoS industry to interact and discus technical issues with each other.
User Rob Riley of Cash Control Services also known as Rob0411 has been a member of the forum since 2010 and has made over 5,500 posts. Mr Riley lives and breathes EPoS and is always interacting on the forum no matter the time of day. It is perhaps his constant interaction with other members in the forum that has allowed him to win 2016 forum user of the year as voted for by the members of the ICRTouch partner forum.
TouchTakeaway Design of the year - Glyn Edwards
TouchTakeaway is quickly becoming a must-have for every takeaway with a TouchPoint till. It provides every takeaway with a can't miss opportunity to compete with the major companies and offer their customers a professional online ordering service at a fixed low monthly fee.
TouchTakeaway can also be custom designed and branded by a professional web developer and this award is for the TouchTakeaway design of the year. Glyn Edwards showed off their expertise with this very nice looking TouchTakeaway design which you can see here.
ICRTouch Distributor of the year - Langley Distribution
Not only have ICRTouch seen tremendous growth in recent history but so have its distributors. Distributors are a key factor in ICRTouch sales growth. They not only sell licences to existing resellers, but seek out new partners through marketing, and they provide technical support looking after them too. This is something that Langleys do well, in addition to selling lots of licences.
Established for over 40 years Langley Distribution are an importer and distributor of EPoS equipment. Their head office is advantageously based in the West Midlands and provides a hub for sales throughout the UK and Ireland.
For more than a decade Langley Distribution have been a reliable distributor of ICRTouch software and last year shipped more ICRTouch licences than any other company.
ICRTouch Partner of the year - Gardiff
The partner of the year award was very close in the voting this year, with other nominees deserving of mentions. County EPoS, Tillmax, Infinity EPoS and EPoS Systems all came close to winning this award, however the winner was Gardiff Epos who were thoroughly deserving.
Established in 1988 supplying Cash Registers Gardiff have evolved and grown over the years to become a complete solution provider of EPOS & Management Solutions.
Gardiff won this award because they have been committed to providing quality installs of ICRTouch software throughout the year.
Congratulations again to our entire Partner Network for a phenomenal 2016! We look forward to an exciting year ahead in 2017 where we look to grow the ICRTouch brand even further and enhance more businesses than ever before.
