Payment technology specialist Yorkshire Payments has invested £200k in the launch of its new Electronic Point Of Sale (EPOS) division.
The West Yorkshire firm has launched the new department to improve payment services for SMEs both regionally and nationally, using EPOS hardware and software to provide businesses with insights into trading activity, productivity and stock checking,
Yorkshire Payments’ introduction of its EPOS division aims to streamline operations and allow for expansion, with the firm already working with national clients such as Harrogate Spring, icelolly.com and Snickers Workwear.
Speaking about the launch, founder and managing director James Howard explained: “It is well-timed with the launch of Making Tax Digital in April, as EPOS integrates with popular cloud accounting platforms such as Sage and Xero, allowing businesses to upload digital accounts information from EPOS directly to the cloud.”
Based in Brighouse, the firm has plans to grow its team as part of the EPOS division launch, as well as opening a purpose-built showroom in the town centre by the end of the year.
James continued: “We will continue to focus on providing Yorkshire businesses with cost-effective access to card payment solutions and chip and pin terminals through our core offering, but our EPOS division marks the next phase of growth for the business, following a successful last financial year.”
