CBE, the Mayo based retail technology company, has installed a new point-of-sale solution in the redeveloped Páirc Uí Chaoimh stadium in Cork. Beating off stiff competition from global competitors CBE secured the contract to install 180 EPoS (electronic point of sale) terminals in the new €80 million stadium.
Commenting on their decision to award the contract to CBE, Bob Ryan (chairman of the stadium steering committee) outlined the stadium requirements; “On a development of this scale we required a complex solution that could handle large volumes of sales in a very short time period so speed and reliability was key. We also needed a software platform that could handle a multifaceted setup involving Páirc Uí Chaoimh, the catering company and third party concession operators – all under the one solution”.
Firmly established as one of Europe’s leading EPoS providers, CBE brought their international expertise and local knowledge to the field of play and outscored the competition to land the coveted contract.
Leo Collins, CBE’s Area Manager in Cork explains, “As a proud Cork man and an avid GAA fan it gives me enormous pleasure to have worked on this project and secured the contract with CBE. We spent a considerable amount of time investigating the requirements of Páirc Uí Chaoimh and presented a solution that ticked all of the boxes. We are delighted to have partnered with Páirc Uí Chaoimh in the newest large scale stadium in the country.”
Based in Claremorris, Co. Mayo, CBE operate throughout Ireland and the UK and provide solutions to the retail, forecourt and hospitality sectors. CBE have a lot of experience in large scale stadium and facility management projects working with Thomond Park, the IGB and many of the large college and university campuses throughout the UK and Ireland.
Bob Ryan from Páirc Uí Chaoimh concluded, “We needed a partner that we could rely on and the CBE team were first rate from start to finish. They ensured that they understood our needs from the outset and delivered a solution as promised. During a large event we need peace of mind that our systems will work without any hiccups and CBE provide that. I am delighted we chose them and have no doubt they will deliver for us over the coming years.”
