Channel Island convenience store chain Alliance Supermarkets has teamed up with Henderson Technology to roll out its EDGEPoS EPOS system across its entire estate in Jersey and Guernsey.

The installation of the EDGEPoS platform will give Alliance full control of its five stores from one central location, aiming to help simplify processes such as ordering and stock control.

The addition to the store estate brings a number of technological and sustainability benefits to shoppers, including self-checkouts and the introduction of electronic shelf edge labels in Guernsey.

Ross Falla financial director of Alliance explained that the company needed to upgrade its systems: “When we were introduced to Henderson Technology, we knew we made the right decision. As well as the system being ideal for our needs, we have the comfort of knowing its origins are based in the convenience market, built by independent and company-owned retail outlets for use in their own network.

“The project team ensured the smooth planning and transition as we rolled out the system to all five stores. We look forward to using the system’s full capabilities and working with Henderson Technology for the duration of our agreement and beyond.”

Commenting on the new partnership, Darren Nickels Henderson Technology retail operations director said: “After a competitive tender process, we are delighted to have been selected by Alliance to roll out EDGEPoS across their five Nisa-supplied stores.

“Their experienced team were looking for a progressive, future-proof, c-store EPOS system that could integrate their supplier and operations database with their EPOS platform, while at the same time cope with the demands of their busy stores, and we were delighted to be able to fulfil all those requirements.”

Alliance is an independent and locally owned chain with five stores - four in Jersey and one store in Guernsey.
