Bleep Supplies UEFA EURO 2016
Bleep UK PLC has supplied an EPOS solution of 250 terminals for the retail stores at the 15th UEFA European Football Championship, the UEFA EURO 2016 tournament in France.
The Bleep EPOS system has been installed in the official merchandise stores at 10 stadiums in 9 cities across France, in and around the stadia and fan zones for the duration of the tournament, from the 10th June until the 10th July. These stores sell official and licensed goods, such as official match shirts, scarves, footballs and other merchandise to the estimated 2.5 million spectators expected inside the stadiums during the 51 matches.
Following on from successful installations at a number of high profile sporting events since the London 2012 Olympic Games, including the Open Championship, the 2014 World Cup, and the 2015 Rugby World Cup, Bleep have secured this contract in what will be another busy summer of global events. Bleep are deploying their EPOS systems at events across the globe including the Roskilde Festival and the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
The Bleep TS-910 all in one EPOS terminal was selected for the multiple retail stores at each venue and this model has been chosen due to its compact footprint and space saving design. Each terminal features a built in thermal receipt printer, laser scanner, interactive POS Media customer video displays and integrated Ingenico payment devices, to minimise the required space without compromising on functionality. All terminals report back to Bleep’s cloud based Web Back Office, allowing for live, real time, sales and stock information from any device, in any location.
Quick, accurate and secure transactions are an essential requirement, while also providing a positive customer experience for shoppers, which is derived from the customer facing video displays streaming video content in the rear of each terminal. Transaction times will be kept to a minimum with sales being processed quickly and efficiently, even during peak times, through direct integration between the till and the card machine, with payments processed in as little as 3 seconds when using Contactless payment methods and the new mobile wallet payment system, Apple Pay.
Bleep UK PLC Chairman, John Wellman said, “We provide EPOS solutions with the reliability required to cope in fast paced environments with the speed and simplicity to ensure effective and efficient transactions and this isn’t just for events and stadia, but for restaurants, bars, fast food and retail environments too.”
