17 May 2012 • i-movo Press Release
SPEDI Norcon, the company who introduced electronic ordering to the UK convenience retail market are integrating their SPEDI-PoS system to i-movo’s Secure Digital Voucher platform.
This means the 4,000 checkouts across the UK using the company’s software will be able to accept the digital vouchers issued by i-movo on behalf of leading FMCG brands, utilities and publishers. In doing so, SPEDI Norcon will become the first company to offer such a service across a range of retailers using the Electronic Point-of-Sale (EPoS) system used for scanning purchases and taking payments.
“i-movo has become the de-facto standard for all forms of digital voucher in the UK convenience retail sector and we have the most comprehensive EPoS solution for convenience stores and newsagents” said Kim Laws, Director at SPEDI Norcon. “Having pioneered the use of EDI in this market nearly thirty-years ago, we are delighted to continue this tradition of innovation by offering our customers access to the i-movo service. i-movo is easy to integrate with as it uses proven retail technology standards and processes.”
“This is a model implementation of a Secure Digital Voucher solution” commented David Tymm, CEO of i-movo. “The SPEDI-PoS solution will provide lightning fast transaction times and prevent ‘misredemption’ which is the use of a voucher for the wrong product or when it has expired. Misredemption has concerned the marketing services and retail community for years but this solution will ensure 100% compliance. In addition, SPEDI Norcon is the market-leader for specialist high-volume newsagents and convenience stores so it was essential that we partner with them to maximise our coverage of this market sector”.
