Unipower Solutions, a leading edge supplier of multi-channel retail software, has been selected by Browns of York, a hugely successful department store over a century old. Browns of York have chosen Unipower to develop and replace their existing EPoS, Stock and Financials system.

Shane Longhorne, Browns’ Financial Director commented “Unipower spent a great deal of time with us, not only helping us to realise our vision, but actively participating in improving that vision. Unipower also provided innovative solutions and detailed proof of concepts that enabled us to realise those solutions in practice and test their reliability and accuracy.”

Shane continued “Our new retail and supply chain business system from Unipower Solutions incorporates industry best of breed MS Dynamics NAV to manage the Procurement, Inventory, Financials and CRM, as well as control our AIS transaction systems. This is fully integrated to Unipower’s multi-channel EPoS and Webstore front end. Finally, this is all co-ordinated by an integrated Business Intelligence system that will allow us to have complete visibility of all aspects of the business. Reliability, scalability and resilience were also key issues for us in serving our customers. This was addressed by Unipower’s provision of IBM Hardware and virtualised failover designs for our core hardware, networks and Chip and PIN installations, which will guarantee 24/7 availability of all services.”

Unipower’s Managing Director John Camp added “A multi-channel retail solution based around a Microsoft application platform raises the bar for standards within the retail community, which, with our solution and integrated Business Intelligence offering, delivers key benefits to all levels of Browns’ business”.

Unipower and Browns of York are set to commence the project and both parties are looking forward to a beneficial and successful working partnership.
