In tough trading conditions for off licences there is news of growth and development. Jubilee Wines, a new chain of off licenses in Essex, is opening just in time for the Christmas period. To help them manage their business they have installed Cybertill's EPoS system across their estate.
Jubilee Wines, who are opening approximately 15 sites this year, have managed to commandeer prime sites for their business, as many are taking leases from former Threshers off licenses. In a tough market place Jubilee Wines offer an off license with a difference somewhere where the public can buy a greater variety of wines and beers from around the world. All stores have an experienced team and the company's ethos though a group is for each site to be stocked and marketed to the needs of the local client base. This flexibility with a diverse range of suppliers means the range will always be exciting and evolving. To help manage this fast growing business Jubilee Wines chose Cybertill, a classic EPoS system with a twist, that every year delivers a full bodied management system helping off licenses control their stock and business.
Andy O'Reilly, Operations Manager at Jubilee Wines, commented. "We chose Cybertill for a variety of reasons. Not only is Cybertill used by many off licenses, which gave us confidence, but is also different to most systems. Cybertill host the EPoS software for their clients, so you access the EPoS system through the till hardware via a broadband connection. As Cybertill host it they also run updates and upgrade the software every few months for us. This means we don't have to worry about the EPoS system so we can focus on the running the business. And as we access Cybertill via broadband this means head office and sales managers can access the back office element anywhere, out on the road or at a supplier's office. So they are able to manage stock, sales, margin and deliveries more efficiently."
"Some off licenses have suffered of late due to the economy and supermarkets burgeoning market share. However Jubilee Wines offer something a little different to the consumer and with their new stores in proven locations it is certainly exciting times," commented Ian Tomlinson, Executive Chairman at Cybertill. "What's more with Cybertill helping manage their business they have a flexible EPoS (electronic point of sale) solution, with which they can run complex promotions and market to their client base. Cybertill also provides the necessary real time sales and stock data to enable businesses, like Jubilee Wines, to make decisions based on the here and now, that will have long lasting positive benefits for their business," continued Tomlinson.
