Bleep to provide EPOS system to World Cup

Leyland-based Bleep UK will supply an EPOS solution of more than 500 terminals for the retail stores at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Bleep EPOSThe Bleep EPOS system will be installed in official merchandise stores at all 12 venues across Brazil, in and around the new or redeveloped stadia which are split across two time zones.

These stores will sell official and licensed goods, such as official match jerseys, clothing, scarves and footballs to the estimated 600,000 football aficionados who will descend on the country in time for kick off on the 12th June.

Following on from successful installs at the London 2012 Olympic Games, The Rugby League World Cup and the ICC Champions Trophy, the Bleep TS-910 all in one EPOS terminal will be 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 will feature a built in thermal receipt printer, laser scanner and customer display.

Bleep chairman John Wellman said: “The World Cup 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 the World Cup 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.”
