Bleep nets Brazil contract

 

Bleep UK Plc has supplied over 500 TS-910 touch screen EPOS terminals to the retail stores supplying football fans at the FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

 

The Bleep EPOS system has been installed in the official merchandise stores at all twelve venues, in and around the new or redeveloped stadia, which are split across two time zones. These stores sell official and licensed goods, such as official match jerseys, clothing, scarves and footballs to the estimated 600,000 football aficionados who have descended on the country for this premier global footballing competition.

 

Following on from successful installs at the London 2012 Olympic Games (as pictured), Rugby League World Cup and the ICC Champions Trophy, the Bleep TS-910 all-in-one EPOS terminal is being deployed in the retail stores at each venue. The TS-910 has been selected due to its compact footprint and space saving design. Each terminal features a built-in thermal receipt printer, laser scanner and customer display to minimise the required space without compromising on functionality.

 

Bleep UK Plc Chairman, John Wellman, said:

This event is the highlight of the international footballing calendar and we are proud and honoured to be involved with this prestigious tournament. We were approached to supply this contract at very short notice, due in part, to our success supplying the London 2012 Olympic Games and our experience supplying EPOS solutions to the stadia and events industry.

 

Despite the logistical challenges of supplying an event in a country 30 times the size of the UK and the short notice in which we have had to prepare, we jumped at the opportunity to be involved. Securing this contract highlights our commitment to innovative point of sale technology and helps us to consolidate our position as the leading provider of EPOS solutions to the biggest and best sporting events across the globe.
