Motorway services, hospitality and leisure group Westmorland is planning to roll out a new epos system across its retail outlets in the North and to the Gloucester services, which is currently being built alongside the M5.

The company wanted to leverage greater benefits from its retail system, in particular to reduce hardware, infrastructure and maintenance costs and to improve access to real-time information to support more effective management decisions and optimise operating costs.

Westmorland has chosen a cloud-based system from BCP called Accord Momentum and has already implemented it at its Tebay northbound motorway services, and reports that it is more than meeting project objectives and delivering real business benefits.

Lower specification, greener tills with solid state drives are already reducing costs, while company-wide visibility of real-time data is facilitating greater centralised reporting and control and enabling more accurate, quicker replenishment, feeding through to improved sales and profitability.

The design of the system enables faster and cheaper deployment of software and upgrades.This will be a benefit that will crystallise more cost savings over the coming months.
