The Newtownabbey company made the decision in 2010 to develop its own EPOS system so that it could better meet the demands of retailers in Northern Ireland and over the last 10 years has continued to develop the technology to offer retailers an all-encompassing solution; fulfilling the needs of the modern-day consumer.
What makes the EDGEPoS system unique is that it is built entirely around retail experiences and can adapt and be amended to consider and integrate third party offerings, allowing Henderson Technology a cost-effective way of introducing new features.
Throughout the last decade, the technology has grown to offer self-checkout stations, Electronic Shelf Edge Labels, Scan & Go Apps and pre-pay food to go options. As well as improving convenience and efficiencies within the stores, the system also allows retailers to be flexible and introduce changes swiftly, without having to reconfigure or install new systems.
Brian Donaldson, CEO of the Maxol Group, which has been a partner of Henderson Group for over 10 years says the EDGEPoS will be hugely advantageous for its 25 outlets across Northern Ireland.
“Appointing Henderson Technology to supply their market leading EDGEPoS technology within 17 of our company owned sites across Northern Ireland, has been an overwhelmingly positive experience for The Maxol Group.
“The decision was made following extensive research and a rigorous tendering process over the last number of months and we have great confidence in this market-leading technology.
“EDGEPoS is at the forefront of retail innovation and the investment we are making in this system will bring significant benefits to, first and foremost, our customers who will see an improved speed of service in our stores.
“Operationally, the system will provide our independent licensees who run the sites with extensive sales and payments information, tighter business controls and data driven insights to help them manage and develop their offering.
“The EDGEPoS technology is continuously developing and improving which will ensure our customers and the business across Northern Ireland continues to benefit from this leading advanced system.
“We are excited to see the opportunities this now opens up to us for further development over the next five years.”
Darren Nickels, Retail Technology Operations Director of Henderson Technology, said: “Since developing this technology in 2010, we have enjoyed continuous growth and expansion, and I am looking forward to continuing on this trajectory, enhancing the technology even further and creating an even more attractive offering for retailers in Northern Ireland and beyond.
“Working collaboratively with Maxol has allowed us to bring our solution to one of the biggest fuel retailers in Ireland, and we are excited to build a long lasting, innovative partnership with them as our technology continues to develop.”
Henderson Technology has been shortlisted for Mobile Innovation of the Year, Sustainability Initiative of the Year and Darren Nickels for the Outstanding Individual Achievement award at the Retail Systems Awards 2020. The finalists take place on October 19 at The Waldorf Hilton, London. The company has also been shortlisted for the Excellence in Exporting award at Belfast Telegraph Business Awards 2020.
