BLEEP UK, the Lancashire based designer, manufacturer and supplier of touch screen electronic point of sale systems, has secured the contract for in-venue retail stores for the Rio 2016 Olympics.

The Bleep EPOS system is being installed in the official merchandise stores in Rio and 3 other cities in Brazil, covering 80 sites, across 37 venues.

It is the second Olympics in a row that the Leyland firm has supplied.

The stores will be selling a range of products and merchandise to visitors from across the globe, such as cuddly versions of the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralymipic mascots Vinicius and Tom, pin badges, mugs, magnets, towels, shirts, caps and more.

Fast transactions are an essential requirement and Bleep can boast they can be processed in as little as 3 seconds.

John Wellman, Chairman of Bleep UK PLC commented, “Supplying our second consecutive Olympic Games is a dream come true for Bleep UK PLC.

“It is a great honour to supply this global event on the back of our success in London four years ago.

“The fact that we have been asked to supply an event of this magnitude over 5000 miles away speaks volumes about what we have achieved in the events and stadia industries in recent years.

“We pride ourselves on supplying the gold standard of EPOS systems and look forward to contributing to the success of another Olympic Games.”

Bleep UK PLC is a supplier, designer and manufacturer of innovative EPOS solutions and touch screen till systems for the retail and hospitality industries.

Established in 1981, it caters for bars, nightclubs, pubs, restaurants, fast food, cafes, bakeries, colleges, universities, stadia, arenas and retail establishments throughout the UK and across the globe.

Bleep secured this prestigious Rio contract largely on the back of the success they had at the London 2012 Olympic Games, but also after supplying a number of world class events and stadia over the past four years, including the FIFA 2014 World Cup, the Open Championship, the Rugby World Cup 2015, the Principality Stadium in Cardiff and EURO 2016.
