Greggs has ordered a further 500 J2 560 touchscreen tills from J2 Retail Systems whom it selected in May 2006 to supply hardware to its 1,353 stores. With 800 new tills already installed, this is the next milestone in the baker’s EPoS upgrade. Greggs’ Head of IT, Roy McDougal, explains: “We find the J2 560 the ultimate in flexibility. We can easily convert the tills to be flat countermounted, or have the screens bracket-mounted at eye-level.”
The J2 560 is a rugged and simplified terminal that is easy to operate and maintain. It uses a Compact Flash card, replacable by the user should problems occur. Continues McDougal: “Being fanless, the J2 560s can’t overheat or suck in dust and flour. The result is a space-efficient, practical, hygienic unit, ideal for our environment.”
Greggs’ ambitions include becoming Europe’s leading bakery-related retailer and it has recently opened 11 branches in Belgium, each equipped with J2 560s. “J2 are very easy to work with,” concludes Roy McDougal. “They’re always willing to accommodate your requirements and their equipment remains competitively-priced.”
In addition to working with Greggs and Bakers Oven, J2 supplies many regionally-dominant bakery chains including Simmons, Neil Martin, Thomas of York and Greenhalgh’s.
