EPOS Group has announced the acquisition of RSA Systems, in a move which will see an extra 400 retail sites added to its customer base.

The purchase of the Blackburn bakery point-of-sale and software specialist will strengthen EPOS Group’s position in the bakery retail market.

It is its second acquisition in this sector, following the purchase of Hampshire-based bakery POS provider WeCan solutions, in 2009.

RSA is known for its Daybreak system, which consists of three products: a point-of-sale application, Touch Till; a back office solution, Shop Controller; and an associated module for bakery production.

Jonathan Measures, technical specialist at RSA. will join EPOS’ support team, while father, RSA’s former managing director Jon Measures, will work with EPOS Group on a consultancy basis.

Jon Measures said: “It’s business as usual for our customers. We’re really pleased to have moved RSA onto its next era as part of the larger EPOS Group.”

Stephen Boyes, managing director, EPOS Group, said: “The addition of RSA to the EPOS Group team will add a wealth of experience and industry knowledge to the very strong technical base we have established in recent years.”
