Shaws, Ireland’s leading department store chain, selects Eurostop Mobile POS to aid social distancing with stores reopening



Mobile POS to provide seamless flow from customer service to final transaction
Shaws, Ireland’s leading department store chain is to implement Eurostop’s mpos one-device mobile POS solution to support social distancing in-store. Scheduled to open the majority of its stores from 15th June, Shaws is planning to use the Eurostop solution as part of its reopening plans in its Beauty department before rolling it out through other departments, with future plans to include its concession partners. This will allow customers to deal with just one member of staff for product consultations and then complete the purchase, without the need to go to a bank of tills.

Based on the Sunmi P2 Lite the Eurostop’s mpos solution provides in built scanning, EPOS and integrated card payments on one device.

Ian Fanning, Retail Director at Shaws commented; “Like many retailers we are looking at ways to safeguard our customers and staff as we reopen after the Coronavirus pandemic. The Eurostop mpos will enable us to minimise the number of interactions needed between staff and customers, because we can take payment for goods at any location within the store. This means that customers do not necessarily need to go to the fixed cash desks, supporting social distancing measures.”

 Stuart Ward, Business Development Manager at Eurostop said; “At Eurostop we have specialised in developing systems for fashion, footwear and lifestyle retailers for over 30 years. The sector is extraordinarily resilient, and our aim is to deliver technology solutions that can help our many clients around the world open their doors to customers once again, and get back to what they do best. Our mobile and app based solutions, like mpos and MyShoppr® both enable retailers to improve the customer journey, while complying with social distancing rules.”
