UK POS makes branding a breeze for Bolton Wanderers

The right signage can make or break an event and high specification visual merchandise adds that professional element. UK Point of Sale (UK POS) has made branding a breeze for Bolton Wanderers Football Club, by supplying portable flags for use in its Reebok Stadium.

UK POS’ air and breeze flags have been designed with versatility in mind and are specially engineered to be lightweight and portable, meaning they are the perfect event accessories. The flags are eye-catching and ideally suited for both indoor and outdoor use, meaning they were the right solution to guide supporters around Bolton’s home ground, the Reebok Stadium.

Mike Needham, Head of Marketing at Bolton Wanderers Football Club, commented: “We recently used UK POS for the procurement of a number of highly visible and high profile flags to allow supporters to identify customer service staff around the Reebok Stadium.

“Despite giving UK POS a very tight deadline for the turnaround of production and delivery, they managed to get the flags to us before the deadline, which was much appreciated. I would have no hesitation in recommending UK POS to any other company or organisation that needs good quality point-of-sale materials.”

Debra Jamieson, Sales and Marketing Director at UK Point of Sale said: “Our flags are versatile, make great use of space and are durable, remove – (with the ability to withstand winds of 13-18mph) making them perfect for outdoor use. We were able to provide Bolton Wanders with fantastic imagery, which was essential to make sure they would guide supporters around the grounds.”

She continued: “UK POS prides itself on expert knowledge in the marketplace and exceeding the expectations of its customers with exceptional service and value. Air and breeze flags are no exception as demonstrated by a focus on creative design and practical convenience.”

UK POS has been manufacturing point of sale products for nearly 25 years and is continually adapting to changing market trends when it comes to working with retailers to market their offers. Best selling products include acrylic free-standing poster holders, banner stands and snap frames.

Collation Service Offered to ‘The Big Four’ by UK POS

Retailers are consistently planning ahead, and with seasonal promotions and sales it is often important for ‘The Big Four’ to ensure that point of sale kit is uniform across outlets, and as a result of this demand, UK Point of Sale is now offering a collation service to its customers.

Through this valuable service, businesses can order sets of point of sale items, and have each set delivered to any of their stores across the country. UK POS observed that high profile retailers such as ‘The Big Four’ and department stores had a growing need for this service, especially at times of seasonal promotions.

As a result, UK POS’s collation service now allows retailers to order point of sale items such as sets of double hook wires, hanging buttons and poster holders in bulk, and then have them collated by UK POS and delivered nationwide to a large number of stores, therefore reducing the amount of time spent organising deliveries by the customer.

Debra Jamieson, sales and marketing director at UK POS, commented:
“We’re really pleased to be able to offer this service to all of our customers, and we definitely see the demand grow in the run up to Christmas. Our customers simply provide us with a list of individual store requirements detailing the quantities of items and we are able to collate, pack, label and distribute items nationwide, which results in quicker delivery items and a smoother procedure due to our experience and knowledge of the products.”

She continued:
“We are always aiming to make the process easier for our customers, as often the marketing departments of the big retailers do not have the resources to process thousands of point of sale products. We offer this service across a wide spectrum of businesses and across all our products, whether some items are large and some are small, we can still offer the collation service and guarantee that all items will arrive at the correct destination and in great condition.”

UK POS has been manufacturing point of sale products for nearly 25 years and is continually adapting to changing market trends when it comes to working with retailers to market their offers. Best selling products include banner stands and display shelves.

Discount Stores Growth Increases Spend On Point Of Sale

As much of the high street struggles in these difficult economic times, one retail sector is growing: discount stores. From budget supermarkets to ‘pound’ stores, the market share of these shops is growing* and as a result they are spending more on drawing customers into the store and boosting sales.

With many of these cut-price retailers selling a wide variety of products, from food to homeware, point of sale is an essential part of their artillery, says UK Point of Sale (UK POS), which has seen a significant increase in orders from discount retailers over the past year.

Key point of sale products, such as shelf talkers help retailers to promote their low prices, and maintain a brand image, which is friendly and approachable. While snap frames are simple but effective items which can be reused throughout the shop, dump bins are ideal for near the till area for impulse purchases, both of which are an important part of keeping an image constant throughout the aisles. The pallet cardholders are often favoured by discount stores, as they are able to sell directly from the pallet and can be emphasised with banner stands. While other items such as double hook wires are used for suspending ceiling posters, which can be used to guide consumers around the aisles in an effort to increase the amount of time spent in store, and therefore improve sales.

Debra Jamieson, Sales and Marketing Director at UK POS, commented:
“We have recently seen a huge surge in orders from a number of these discount retailers, which has coincided with news that these cut-price stores are consistently growing in popularity. Items being ordered by these retailers seem to be similar, as they are all aiming to achieve large sales figures by promoting low prices.”

She continued:
“These retailers can also be creative with their branding in order to have a greater visual impact; this in turn leads to an opportunity to cross-sell in the aisles or at the tills. Although online shopping is becoming increasingly popular, these stores have an advantage in terms of point of sale, and they are definitely acting on it.”

Discount Retailers Investing In Point Of Sale

Discount retailers investing in point of sale October 26, 2011.

The UK’s discount retailers are looking to make the most of the current economic climate by appealing to cash-strapped consumers through the use of point of sale products.

According to industry leader UK Point of Sale, orders from businesses which specialise in offering discount products have increased significantly over the past 12 months. As consumers’ disposable income continues to be squeezed, these companies are keen to appeal to shoppers looking for high street bargains and are using point of sale items such as pavement signs and cable displays in order to attract them through the doors.

According to UK Point of Sale, products such as shelf talkers, signs which can be mounted on the edge of shelves, are being used to advertise low prices and grab shoppers’ attention. Such items are also favoured as they can be used to maintain the company’s brand image.

Debra Jamieson, sales and marketing director at UK POS, said: “We have recently seen a huge surge in orders from a number of these discount retailers, which has coincided with news that these cut-price stores are consistently growing in popularity. Items being ordered by these retailers seem to be similar, as they are all aiming to achieve large sales figures by promoting low prices.”

Dump bins, which can hold a large number of products and are often used by retailers to attract attention at the tills and encourage impulse purchases, have proved to be increasingly popular over recent months. Likewise, double hook wires which are used to suspend ceiling posters are proving popular with discount firms keen to grab the attention of consumers in their aisles.

Debra added: “These retailers can also be creative with their branding in order to have a greater visual impact, which in turn leads to an opportunity to cross-sell in the aisles or at the tills. Although online shopping is becoming increasingly popular, these stores have an advantage in terms of point of sale, and they are definitely acting on it.”
