ICRTouch Partner Awards 2020

The annual ICRTouch Partner Network awards celebrate another year of excellence from the EPoS industry and the global network of partners that provide and support ICRTouch products and services.

ICRTouch had its most successful year in 2020 thanks to the hard work from its Partner Network. Below we take a look at the winners and why they are deserving of winning their awards.

Best Newcomer - Yorkshire Payments

Yorkshire Payments are an established merchant services provider furnishing thousands of businesses with affordable payment methods. Earlier this year they expanded their product portfolio by applying to become an Authorised Partner of ICRTouch. Since then, their engineers have completed ICRTouch training and they have already installed many TouchPoint EPoS solutions along with TouchOffice Web cloud business management.

Best Showroom - ASG

The ICRTouch Partner Network spreads far and wide across the globe. Our team visits our Partners throughout the year to see how business is going and to provide brochures and other marketing material.

When visiting our Partners we get to see their showrooms and how they are presenting ICRTouch products to their customers.

There are many fantastic showrooms which you can learn more about here, but the winner of Best Showroom for 2020 was ASG.

ASG display our entire software suite so that customers can see the purpose and importance of each product and how they compliment each other.

Best ETAL Script - Mark Windross of Ring A Till

ETAL sets TouchPoint apart from all other EPoS systems. It is a scripting engine that is built into the till that gives ICRTouch Partners the capability to write bespoke features for the till.

This means that if a customer has a bespoke feature request, it can most often be accomplished.

The Best ETAL Script created by an ICRTouch Partner this year was a unique feature that reworked the programming process. Mark Windross from Ring A Till created a script that can adjust the TouchPoint keyboard layout direct from the till.

Best Forum User - Lee or CCM EPoS

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, you may not know that ICRTouch has an internal partner forum for all the engineers in the EPoS industry to interact and discuss technical issues with each other.

User 'ccmlee' won this award for his selfless ongoing help and advice to other Partners, as well as lending his knowledge of ETAL feature scripting to help Partners create new features for TouchPoint.

Best Technology Partner - Paymentsense

ICRTouch works with many technology Partners, including integrations with accounts packages, property management systems, EFT solutions, labour management, webshops, gift aid and a wide range of other third party integrations.

Our pairing with Paymentsense has been very successful through 2019. The Paymentsense EFT solution compliments our software extremely well enabling mobile, contactless and card payments.

We would like to thank Paymentsense for another successful year of business.

Best Online Presence - Panaepos

Showcasing the ICRTouch brand and the products online, through websites and social media attracts and captures new customers.

Panaepos won the award for Best Online Presence this year as they consistently post professional case studies of their installs on social media platforms on a daily basis. They are open with their audience about the great work they do for their clients and explain what software was used and why, always accompanied with great photos and videos.

Best UK Install - Star Pubs & Bars - Microtill

Star Pubs & Bars are the pub group of HEINEKEN with the highest turnover of any national pub group. This year Microtill installed an ICRTouch EPoS solution throughout the pub chain, with TouchOffice Web cloud business management so Head Office could oversee its licensees.

In the latter part of 2019, ICRTouch developed the Pub Group's Self Service kiosks which have already been introduced into numerous Star pubs & bars with plans to roll out further in 2020. This allows customers over 18 to place orders at the kiosk without a member of bar staff
