Shoes retailer Stylo has signed a contract with BT Expedite to implement a new Epos system and new network connections at all its stores.

Stylo, which trades under the Barratts, Shellys, PriceLess and Shutopia brands, will install BT Expedite’s own Store Epos system running on Retail Blade hardware from DigiPos, using new DSL lines.

The new Epos system will be used to introduce chip and Pin card readers at the stores for the first time.The DSL network connections will enable Stylo to move VoIP, which will reduce the company’s telecommunications costs.

Stylo’s chief operating officer John Weaving said, “We needed to invest in a strategic platform across our stores and selected BT as our partner to deliver our long-term vision because of its proven retail infrastructure and range of services.”

Rival shoe retailer Clarks signed its own deal with BT Expedite in January. Clarks is installing BT Expedite’s Connected Retailer Store system in an effort to cut costs by remotely managing in-store software.
