Intelligent Point of Sale employs 42 staff, and co-founder and chief executive Robin Knox said: “Within the festival environment, the most important benefits that an Epos system can deliver are speeding-up service to cut queues at the bar, integrating chip and pin with contactless payments and cash, and providing reliable stock control.

“Our software does all of this and a great deal more from an iPad and we’re delighted that Intelligent Point of Sale will be at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe in even greater numbers.”

The firm targets SMEs in the hospitality sector and sales to festival operators are said to be “particularly strong”.

New client, Wonder Bars, operated 15 iPad terminals with the company’s software across its six bars at Glastonbury this year. More than 80 staff were trained on the system, which handled in excess of 14,000 transactions over the June weekend.
