Vision Express sees eye to eye with Box Technologies

Leading optical retailer opts for cielo EPoS solution.

Vision Express, part of Europe's largest optical retail group, GrandVision'has selected Box Technologies’ cielo modular lite EPoS solution for all 331 stores across the UK, following a comprehensive study of the market.

The Box cielo modular lite is a high performance point-of-sale PC designed with a key focus on flexibility and scalability. In addition, the rich I/O interface gives the terminal high expandability and flexibility which ensures the cielo modular lite continually delivers a powerful and reliable service for all business needs and provides the ideal platform for retail applications.

At Vision Express, the new systems will be used in a variety of applications ranging from the front of house customer facing systems for clinical consultations, dispensing and for payment solutions.

The units will be installed in VE operated and joint venture stores throughout the UK.
IS Support Manager, Kerry Hardy, said: “Vision Express has selected the Box Technologies’ cielo modular solution following extensive research and testing against a number of branded manufacturers. The Box cielo modular came out on top on a number of technology factors including small form factor design, reduced running costs, increased CPU power and performance."

Ian Patterson, head of retail, at Box added: “We are delighted with Vision Express’ decision to go with the Box cielo modular solution. It is fast becoming the hub of a new approach to EPoS systems with its small footprint, extensive connectivity and wide choice of processors. The partnership with Vision Express has been the success of this project. The retailer has taken an objective approach to taking on a new brand of solutions into a critical area of its business.”
