CBE secures significant contract with the Louis Fitzgerald Group
The Louis Fitzgerald Group has selected CBE as an IT POS (point of sale) partner in a deal potentially worth over €500,000. The Louis Fitzgerald Group is the largest pub group in the country operating some of the best known pubs, restaurants and hotels across Ireland. The new system will help to provide the group with greater automation from head office, centralised inventory management and a better experience for staff and customers through improved speed of service.
CBE’s web based business management software offers greater stability over traditional VPN networks and ensures that consolidation of data from each site is instantly available to management, as and when required.
Sean Kenna, CBE’s MD says: “Any business operating in today’s competitive environment needs systems in place that can improve processes within their operations, maximise revenue during busy sales periods and provide data to allow them improve their bottom line. We carried out a thorough work-study on the requirements of The Louis Fitzgerald Group and concluded that our latest Hospitality POS solution was the best fit for their needs.”
“CBE recognises that the Fitzgerald Group doesn’t just require a cutting-edge IT solution, but also a robust support network that can provide speed-of-service as and when required. As such, CBE has expanded the support team to manage not just this contract but other notable contracts that the business has secured in the Dublin region and throughout the country over the past 18 months.”
John Nash, Financial Controller of the Louis Fitzgerald Group added: “We have been in business for many years and, in that time, our EPoS requirements evolved and we came to a juncture where we needed to revamp our IT infrastructure. We investigated the market both in Ireland and the UK and were delighted to find an expert company right here on our doorstep in CBE. We have been very impressed with the company’s product offering and their team’s professional approach.”
CBE will manage its involvement with The Louis Fitzgerald Group from its EMEA headquarters in Claremorris with local support provided via their Dublin office and remote service centres throughout the country.
Over the last three decades, CBE has grown to become the leading designer and developer of retail software in Ireland. The Mayo based retail technology and solutions software business offers adaptable EPoS solutions to suit all major retail and hospitality sectors. The company is also very strong in export markets and now support installations in Canada, Australia, Algeria and is also firmly established as a major player in the UK market.
