A SCOTTISH tech start-up whose customised point of sale products could revolutionise the food and drink sector has smashed its client growth targets by 800% just months after its official launch.

Edinburgh-based ePOS Hybrid’s Android-run system automates a restaurant or bar’s business to improve efficiency, streamline processes and address a range of potential concerns, including allergen information and food waste.

The National reported in May that the firm offers a branded app and online ordering platforms to help businesses build loyalty and increase online revenue by reducing dependency on third-party services such as Just Eat and Deliveroo.

Customers can capitalise on emerging food and drink trends through its cloud-based sales terminals and interconnected customer self-checkouts. Smart table technology also sends orders to the kitchen with a click of a button.

The system can automate every aspect of a food and drink outlet’s operation, from stock management to staff training and rotas. From the reports ePOS Hybrid generates, an understanding can be gained of what food products are being consistently wasted.

ePOS Hybrid claims it is the world’s most advanced electronic point of sale (ePOS) system and its clients have developed an appetite for it, as food outlets seek to reinvent their businesses and revolutionise customer experience.

The company now boasts a portfolio of clients in Scotland as well as throughout Britain, including London, Manchester, Cardiff, Bristol and Essex.

Its accelerated growth has been down to a series of high-quality appointments, with the sales and marketing team expanding from one person to five over the past three months and 20 employees in total.

Andrew Gibbon, its head of growth, said: “We’re currently achieving impressive growth month on month and we’re beginning to generate sustainable momentum within our sales teams.”

The company’s founder, Bhas Kalangi, said: “We’ve got a really exciting and innovative product and it’s clear that our unique offering is striking a chord with customers from the level of demand we’re seeing.

“We’re delighted to be implementing our growth strategies and building our team as we look to generate and maintain momentum over the coming months.”
