EPOS Group has launched a new version of its Quantum till solution specifically for bakery shops.

The new 1.1 version provides a way to take chip-and-pin card payments, manages in-store price promotions, and has full integration with CyBake Touch software to improve day-to-day shop management.

Most bakery shops still only take cash, due to the cost of processing low-value transactions, but the firm warns that, without the facility to take payments via card, they will lose out to competitors.

Bakers can add a contactless reader to the pin pad to work with the new ’wave-and-pay’ credit and debit cards.
