Lancashire-based Bleep UK PLC put in another medal-winning performance by supplying more than 160 electronic point of sale terminals for the Commonwealth Games.

The deal follows hot on the heels of the Leyland-based firm serving official shops at the World Cup in Brazil and The Open golf tournament at Royal Hoylake.

The Bleep EPOS system was installed in over 40 official shops across all 13 Glasgow venues, including George Square, Celtic Park, Hampden Park, Ibrox Stadium, the SECC and Glasgow Green.

The stores sold a range of products and merchandise, such as team wear, clothing, gifts, cccessories and traditional Scottish goods for the duration of the Games, which ended on Sunday.

After successful installs this summer at the Open Championship and the World Cup in Brazil, both the Bleep TS-915 and TS-910 all in one EPOS terminals were deployed in the stores.

Ross Weszka, Head of Marketing at Bleep said, “The Commonwealth Games capped off a great sporting summer for Bleep.

“This was another prestigious sporting event which we supplied, proving we are the leading provider of event EPOS systems. Our innovative EPOS software coupled with internal laser scanners and integrated payment devices, directly result in faster transactions and a better customer experience, even in the most fast paced environments.”

The majority of tills were operating from early in the morning until late at night, with little respite from paying customers, especially in the 12,500 sq ft superstore in George Square.

Transactions had to be fast and efficient, allowing items to be quickly scanned and payments to be taken in as little time as possible, by card or cash.

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.
