Today, ICRTouch's TouchOffice Web has just reached the milestone of processing £2,000,000,000 of sales through the revolutionary cloud-based back office software. At the end of November, ICRTouch announced that 2016 has been their best year to date. This marks the third consecutive year of record high EPoS software sales for the company.
In 2016, ICRTouch are continuing to dominate the EPoS industry. With December still to go, ICRTouch has already breezed passed 10,000 installs so far this year. ICRTouch raised the bar for the EPoS industry in June with another record breaking performance, distributing almost 1,200 installs as well as March and November recording well past 1,100 installs. This number can be put into context, where March 2015 saw the first time the company hit over 1,000 installs within a single month, with a total of almost 1,100 installs. This was truly an impressive feat which had never been accomplished in the EPoS industry and almost doubled the prior 2014 average monthly install figures.
Colin Ringer - CEO and Co-Founder
"Every year we get to this point and I think back over the last 12 months about what our teams have achieved and also what our Partners have achieved and think, "This is probably going to be remembered as the best year ever." I thought it last year, the year before, the year before that and yet again I'm sat here thinking the same about this year. This sort of thing can only be achieved when your business is as gelled together as ours is and it is incredible to think how far we have come. In 2014 we hit 50,000 installs, two years on and we are a long way past 75,000 installs; it's scary! Our software development team is outstanding, the number of creative minds we have working to develop exciting new products like TouchKitchen for tablets and CollectionPoint seems to be forever expanding. At ICRTouch we have big ideas for the future, as we continue to enhance businesses throughout the globe. 2016 was by far our finest year to date with some big news ahead concerning our HQ, milestones reached and further job opportunities created for the UK."

TouchKitchen up 67%
This year has also seen the reboot of TouchKitchen now available on Windows, Android and iOS devices. This new software has been much anticipated and allows the modern chef to control their kitchen from multiple mobile devices, tablets and display screens. The redesign was largely based around user configurability, so that the chef has absolute control over how the kitchen video operates, and to enhance it's 'smart' features further, way beyond just being a simple 'kitchen ticket printer'. TouchKitchen allows the chef to receive orders direct from the TouchPoint till system or PocketTouch handheld order pads, so you can be sure no mistakes are made. The software is also compatible with bump bars to keep touchscreens free of greasy hands. As a result of the highly anticipated release, TouchKitchen sales have increased 67% in 2016.
