EPoS for Butchers

Butchers can really benefit from an EPoS system, especially around Christmas time.


We can make your life easier with EPoS

Our EPoS for butchers system will offer immediate benefits from day one.

Butchers have some unique issues to their sector which we have some excellent solutions for.

With the possibility of selling raw meat, cooked takeaway food, wholesale customers, and possible fish and deli counters, it’s a real mix at a modern butchers, and you need a butcher till system that works for you.

For those customers whom already sell using Bizerba scales, we can also offer you a more in depth back office reporting package, leaving the front end of your business to carry on as usual.

For the busy Christmas period (but is used all year round by some), our Sales Order solution takes away headaches and mountains of paperwork for customers ordering in advance, and adding to their order over multiple visits.

Key Benefits for Butchers

Save Time

We all know time is money, so saving as much as possible is desirable.

Increase the speed at which you can process transactions, save time communicating promotions, delivery dates plus much more across your business.

Yes, to begin with EPoS is going to take more time than without, but within the first 6 months you will start to see the savings.

Financial Accuracy

Have a much more accurate account of your financial information.

Don’t wait until your end of year accounts to find out if you are making money, keep check on margins live as the sales happen.

VAT reports are easily produced, no more daily Z reads.


Check your stock and sales in real time and never miss out on an opportunity.

Buy more of what’s selling, identify and tackle what isn’t.

Put a stop to out of control buyers with our budgeting solutions, setting purchase limits against what’s been ordered and received.

Bizerba K Class Scale

Back Office To Bizerba Scales

If you already have Bizerba XC or K class scales as tills, we can act just as back office, giving you superior control compared to Bizerba’s standard back office package.

Using our system this way gives you all the same back office benefits as if you were using our own tills including stock control, reporting enquiries and more.

Unlike other software claiming to act as Back Office to Bizerba scales, we extract product sales data, not just daily totals, giving you much more insight into what is happening in your business.

Butcher Scales

Butcher Weigh Labels

Weigh labels are used to label items by weight, place a barcode on the item unique to the weight being purchased, to then be scanned at the tills in a another physical area of the shop.

Simply place the item on the scale, press the correct button on the screen, press print and attached to the item.

This barcode can then be scanned at the main checkout charging the correct amount based on the items weight.


Coping With Christmas Orders

Sales Orders

For customers wanting to place orders for collection at a later date, this solution solves the issues that come along with that way of trading.

Our Sales Order software can run on any device with a browser and internet connection, meaning orders don’t have to be taken on the till causing long queues. A member of staff can be taking orders on a tablet or laptop elsewhere instore or in the office over the phone.

The order can be added to at a later date and revised as needed. A picking list can be printed the day before collection or delivery, so all meat can be weighed and packed ready.

  • Open Retail's system has really helped to grow my business. Adding products, promotions is really really easy. Creating shelf edge labels in the shop or barcoded sticky labels for plants was all set up for us and works brilliantly. The back office allows you to pull reports quickly so can see the performance of our suppliers. Great for when doing preseasons orders or deciding if something is working for or not. Their biggest attribute is customer service. They always have somebody at the end of the phone to help whether it’s developing the system further or if there is a technical problem.

  • Open Retail installed our EPOS system and software in April this year, customer service both before and after sales has been brilliant - any issues we have had with the till have been dealt with promptly and efficiently, with minimal disruption to service. All the staff we have dealt with in person or on the phone, including during training, have been friendly and knowledgeable and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the company.

    Rory Mellis I.J. MELLIS CHEESE
  • Our EPOS is provided by Open Retail Solutions, I had quotes from a few providers and found ORS to be the most competitive.They provided all the help I needed pre opening, came all the way down to Cornwall to train staff and on opening day were there in the chaos to help with the till system.Since opening they have provided support when required, and always been happy to help even when I've called 2 or 3 times with the same question! I'd recommend them.
