IT systems, services and products company, Fujitsu recently signed a three-year electronic point-of-sale hardware deal with specialist retail IT distributor EPoS Distributor.


The agreement will see EPoS Distributor become the first UK distributor of Fujitsu’s point-of-sale (PoS) retail hardware products.


EPoS Distributor began reselling Fujitsu’s retail hardware products in January, via its network of resellers in the UK. The agreement spans the entire range of products, from the TP-X II terminal to the TP-TRIO series including terminals, printers, screens and cash drawers. Fujitsu said all the terminals have the ability to run complex multimedia/multi-screen applications and are designed to support the latest software innovations.


Meeting increased demand for PoS kit and knowledge


EPoS Distributor will also distribute Fujitsu’s new lightweight tablet device, TeamPad 700, as well as its mobile EPoS and payment terminal, the B-Pad, a lightweight mobile computer that is among the first to allow retailers to take customers’ orders and receive secure payment from one device. It offers multiple functionality, including order processing, mobile payment, stock management and self-checkout and Fujitsu said it is widely used by a number of leading companies in the hospitality, leisure and retail sectors.


Commenting on the deal, Jim Stockley, Retail Products Group director at Fujitsu UK & Ireland said: “EPoS Distributor is the fastest growing distributor of retail products supplying the reseller market in the UK and this agreement will enable us to reach new customers in this market. We also feel that the level of ongoing product support, which retailers receive from the resellers will enable them to use the hardware in the most efficient way to build sales.”


Mike Pullon, EPoS Distributor chief executive, added: “Over the last few months our resellers have reported a rise in the number of enquiries for PoS terminals and we are looking forward to being able to supply them Fujitsu’s hardware. The products are reliable, efficient and competitive, which will enable us to continue to recruit new retail resellers.”


EPoS Distributor was established in July 2009.
