Scottish EPOS supplier ACR EPOS Systems has helped the family-run Caulders garden centre chain to bring its till systems up to date.
Caulders operates five garden centres and restaurants across the Scottish central belt, at Mugdock Country Park, Kirkintilloch, Braidbar, Erskine and Cupar. When the company bought the Erskine business, it inherited an existing software-based EPOS system from the previous owners - something it did not yet have in place in its other stores.
That also brought Caulders into contact with ACR EPOS Systems, the Ayrshire-based supplier that had installed the Bleep EPOS set up at Erskine. ACR then played a key role in helping Caulders roll out a similar system at all of its sites, using the Bleep platform run on brand new AURES touchscreen terminals.
Ewan Moody, IT Manager at Caulders, said: “We knew the limitations of our old existing system and we could clearly see the advantages to Erskine. Within a short time we could see the flexibility and benefits. With the excellent customer support we received from ACR and the system’s adaptability, we knew it would be able to grow with us.”
ACR, which started out as Ayrshire Cash Registers in the 1970s when it was set up by the present owner’s grandfather, has been supplying AURES EPOS hardware across Scotland for 14 years. For Caulders, it recommended the AURES YUNO, a flexible and robust all-in-one touchscreen terminal that combines stylish looks with high class performance.
