F.Hinds Rings The Changes With Cybertill
Posted on: 27/09/2013F.Hinds, a family run independent jewellers now with 115+ stores across England and Wales, has chosen to deploy Cybertill’s cloud based EPoS system across its retail estate.
By installing Cybertill’s EPoS system, F.Hinds will benefit from real-time stock visibility throughout the business, both online and across their 190 points of sale. “Cybertill is cloud based and consequently hugely appealing. It will help ensure our branches can view one another’s stock levels in real-time so that they can transfer stock around the business, minimising missed sales opportunities,” commented Paul Hinds of F.Hinds.
Another important factor for F.Hinds was the ability to deploy mobile points of sale at peak trading times. “Christmas is such a busy time for us and we wanted to be able to ensure that our customers don’t have to queue. To do this we knew we needed the ability to introduce mobile PoS into our stores as and when required. Cybertill’s cloud based system allows us to do just this.”
“More and more retailers are turning to cloud based retail systems to help them manage their business,” commented Cybertill founder and CEO, Ian Tomlinson. “For successful and growing retailers, like F.Hinds, having a cloud based EPoS system means that it is scalable and can grow with them.”
Before making such a major investment, F.Hinds carried out an exhaustive search for a suitable EPoS solution, looking at jewellery specific to tier one systems, and decided that Cybertill’s cloud based solution was the best fit. “The managed service aspect of Cybertill was also very appealing. As an organisation we don’t have to concern ourselves with data back-ups or software upgrades, we can focus on managing our business not our EPoS system,” added Director Andrew Hinds.
