The Evolution of Epos at Nisa
The new and updated version of Nisa’s bespoke Epos system is set to be launched to in the new year with much anticipation from retailers.
Evolution Version 2.0 is currently being piloted by long time Nisa retailer Christopher Taylor at Taylors of Tickhill and will be rolled out to across the group in February.
Chris Taylor, an advocate of the original Evolution system, said the upgrade is long awaited and so far, the trial is going well, and he has not been disappointed.
“It has been a long time coming but it is very, very good. It looks very similar to the old version, but it is far better and very intuitive – which is working wonders for me instore.”
The new software, which was installed overnight at Taylor’s to ensure no disruption to trading, includes an array of new features which improves efficiency for retailers and assists on many more areas of their daily workload.
For Chris, the new elements on the product screen are proving invaluable, with the history for every sku provided at the touch of a button and every detail available such as price, promotion, stock level, waste and sale figures.
“You used to have to dig around for different information about your products but now it is all there, right in front of you, at the touch of a button. There are really useful graphs on screen which illustrate the data you are looking at and an audit trail for every single product and what has happened to it such as price changes and so on,” added Chris.
The speed of the tills has also accelerated with products scanning through faster and items such as multi-buys going through instantaneously.
“There are no delays on products as they scan through and those vital seconds that we save at the check out are fantastic, particularly at peak times when shoppers are queuing.
“We have had very few niggles, although anything we have discovered has been dealt with immediately by the support team. I will most certainly be recommending it.”
Mike Wardle, head of Epos at Nisa, said: “The installation of the new software went very well at Taylor’s of Tickhill and really is testament to the hard work and determination of the team in their testing, development and planning over the last year. We are now looking forward to the next steps and rolling out Version 2.0 to our other retailers.”
