Leyland-based Bleep UK Plc will supply electronic point of sale systems to more than 500 terminals for the retail stores at the World Cup in Brazil.

The Bleep EPOS system will be installed in official merchandise stores at all 12 venues across Brazil, in and around the new or redeveloped stadia which are split across two time zones.

These stores will sell official and licensed goods, such as official match jerseys, clothing, scarves and footballs to the estimated 600,000 football fans who will descend on the country in for kick off on June 12.

Following on from successful installs at the London 2012 Olympic Games, The Rugby League World Cup and the ICC Champions Trophy, the Bleep TS-910 all in one EPOS terminal will be deployed in the retail stores at each venue.

The TS-910 has been selected due to its compact footprint and space saving design. Each terminal will feature a built-in thermal receipt printer, laser scanner and customer display, to minimise the required space without compromising on functionality.

Bleep UK Plc chairman John Wellman said: “The World Cup is the highlight of the international footballing calendar and we are proud and honoured to be involved with this prestigious tournament.

“We were approached to supply this contract at very short notice, due in part to our success supplying the London 2012 Olympic Games and our experience supplying EPOS solutions to the stadia and events industry.

“Despite the logistical challenges of supplying an event in a country 30 times the size of the UK and the short notice in which we have had to prepare, we jumped at the opportunity to be involved.”

Bleep UK Plc was established in 1981.
