Henderson Technology steps into 2021 with new Celestra partnership

New EDGEPoS installation

After a strong year in 2020, Henderson Technology enters 2021 with plenty of momentum.

Celebrating the 10th birthday of EDGEPoS in March 2020, and despite the challenges that the global pandemic presented, Henderson Technology made huge strides globally, reaching 645 installed sites by the end 2020.

New delivery capabilities

In addition, the launch of Appetite, the Home Delivery, Click n Collect and Hot Food App; along with the integration of the Glory Cash Management system and the roll out of dozens of EDGEPoS ESEL installations, Henderson Technology finished 2020 in its strongest position to date.

Darren Nickels, retail technology operations director, said: “Since developing EDGEPoS in 2010, we have enjoyed constant growth and expansion, and I am looking forward to continuing on an upward trajectory, enhancing the technology even further and creating an even more attractive offering for retailers in Northern Ireland and beyond.

“With wholesaler links in place for Booker, Costcutter, SPAR, JW Filshill and Deebee Wholesale and our strong relationship with Unitas Wholesale, alongside our fuel integrations with BP, Texaco, Jet and many others, we are excited by what lies ahead.

“2021 is going to be a huge year for us and we are very proud of our team and how they have adapted to the circumstances we all find ourselves in to ensure the highest levels of service to our retailers at all times, helping them in any way we can with the challenges they face, whilst positioning the company for further success. We are, at our core, a family business, delivering an award winning feature rich and innovative EPOS solution, while continuing to innovate with additional offerings that are fully integrated with the EDGEPoS system, including Self-Checkout, Head Office, ESELs, and our suite of Mobile App integrations with Gander, Ubamarket, Blu Dot Technologies and BPme.

“In order to meet demand from retailers and ensure EDGEPoS is installed as quickly as possible in their stores, the natural next step in our expansion was to look for an installation partner who could deliver the same quality service, expertise and professionalism that the Henderson Technology team have become renowned for.  We were delighted to find Celestra, whose installation and engineering services offer a huge amount of expertise and same approach to the highest customer service levels as we expect. We look forward to a strong partnership in years to come.

“We would welcome any retailer across the convenience and fuel forecourt market to get in touch and organise an EDGEPoS online demonstration today and see how the future of retail technology is already here with EDGEPoS,” Nickels added.

Glen Irving, head of sales and marketing at Celestra, commented: “We are delighted to have formed this partnership with Henderson Technology and after completing the first of many EDGEPoS installs in 2021 this week, we are excited to be installing this award winning EPOS system across Scotland, England and Wales.  We have a nationwide network of engineers, which enables us to simultaneously conduct installations at various locations to ensure project timescales are achieved.”

“Celestra offers the capability to scale their services; from 100 sites to 1000 sites, coupled with the knowledge that no two sites are ever the same.  This demonstrates their flexibility to deliver a constant high-quality level of service that the EDGEPoS retailers are used to,” added Nickels.
