Gaining Momentum

Motorway services group Westmorland Ltd has rolled out BCP's Accord Momentum epos solution to its Cairn Lodge services operation in Scotland, which it acquired in November.

The move follows successful implementation of Accord Momentum last year at Westmorland's retail outlets at Tebay Services on the M6 and Gloucester Services, northbound on the M5.

The system is providing company-wide visibility of real-time data, which is facilitating more centralised reporting and control and enabling more accurate, quicker replenishment, resulting in improved sales and profitability.

The ability to deploy and upgrade the system quickly and inexpensively is delivering savings as Momentum becomes more widely used across the business and will crystallise further when it is rolled out to the Gloucester Services south-bound operation, which is due to open early in the summer.

Jon Lees, retail systems manager at Westmorland, said: "Accord Momentum allows us to take advantage of the cost and delivery benefits of a cloud-based solution, but with the resilience we require to trade successfully in our motorway services and it's helping us to control those retail outlets effectively from the centre with all the additional benefits that brings."
