EPoS provider marks 100th cloud charity win

Retail arm of local palliative care services organisation chooses cloud-based Charity till system to streamline operations and optimise revenues

Lakelands Hospice in Northamptonshire has become the 100th charity retail customer of electronic point-of-sale (EPoS) provider Cybertill by choosing the Cybertill Charity System to manage its two charity shops.

The deal means almost one in every three charity shops in the UK currently use Cybertill, ranging from individual charity shops to larger regional hospices and some of the largest national charity retailers. 

“After extensive research we thought Cybertill was the best charity retail system available. It will help streamline our retail operations and also optimise revenues,” commented Paul Marlow, Lakelands Hospice fundraising manager.

Growing revenue channel

Ian Tomlinson, Cybertill founder and chief executive, commented that retail has become increasingly important to charities since the economic downturn. For many retail has become their primary or fastest growing source of fund raising. 

“This is evident in the growing number of charity shops on the UK High Street, there are now in excess of 10,000 in the UK. Another key reason for retail being so attractive to charities is the ability to claim Gift Aid on donated items,” he said. 

Tomlinson added that the company offered a best-of-breed charity retail system: “It marries Cybertill's EPoS system and unique Gift Aid software. It is the simplest and fastest way of selling gift aided goods and is 100% accurate, the system eradicates all missed gift aid sales and enables real-time stock control on all donated stock items and bought in goods.” 

Cybertill also donated £1,000 to Lakelands Hospice as a special gesture to celebrate its 100th customer.
