New epos system at Soho Theatre ‘takes the mystery out of using a till system’


Soho Theatre is often described as the “Edinburgh Festival Fringe in London” because of the bustling, day-to-day nature of the area, and Sebastian Collins, the assistant manager, confirms that the theatre is a lively place where people meet and mix easily.

When working in such a fast-paced, demanding environment, it can be difficult to find time to check stock levels or to keep track of sales, but monitoring this information for Sebastian is vital. Looking for a new electronic point of sale (epos) system, therefore, it was important to the theatre to find one that was simple and easy to use.

Choosing intelligentpos® instantly gave Sebastian access to key data through the application’s back office function, which he describes as one of the app’s “most valuable features”.

intelligentpos is a cloud-based, iPad epos application which is easy-to-use, set up and customise, allowing businesses of any size to take credit card payments (including Apple Pay), control stock, automate re-ordering, manage tables, build and apply promotions and discounts, and recognise and reward loyalty. It eliminates waste, maximises throughput and staff efficiency and allows business owners to monitor all commercial activity remotely, any time, anywhere.

“The system stores all of your information and it’s easy to use,” says Sebastian. “It gives me an insight into the staff, our sales and trends for each of our shows. Everything can be traced and it keeps my accounts much more precise.”

Not only is the information from the back office useful in identifying real-time data, it’s also helpful in predicting trends for future events. Sebastian adds: “For each of the shows we have different audiences who order different types of drinks. When we know about another similar show coming up, we can make sure these drinks and services are available for these shows.”

Sebastian adds that a refreshing feature of intelligentpos is that “it takes the mystery out of using a till system”. This is due to the simplicity of setting up the system and the ease of operating the app.

Epos systems are typically expensive. However, intelligentpos will only cost a very modest £39 per month for a single iPad Terminal and £29 per month per device for additional terminals.
