Cole Buxton goes live with Cegid Retail mPOS and Planet’s payment solution

25 November 2021 in News

 

MWC Partners are pleased to announce that Cole Buxton’s newly deployed  Cegid mPOS solution is now live with Planet’s payment solution. The solution utilises a Cegid Retail to Planet payment connector developed by retail systems specialists, MWC Partners.

The POS and payment solutions run on iPhones and PAX Terminals to enable store staff to serve customers and take payments, wherever they are in store, and address Cole Buxton’s requirement to provide queue-busting during peak periods.

The integration was developed after global integrated payments leader, Planet, approached MWC Partners in late 2020 to build a connector between their payment solution and Cegid POS solutions. The team at Planet knew of MWC Partners’ experience in the payments integration market and were confident in the company’s ability to deliver. Planet commissioned MWC Partners to develop connectors for both their wireless and fixed client solutions.

When MWC Partners won the contract to implement Cegid Retail for Cole Buxton in July 2021, Cole Buxton approached a number of payment service providers (PSP), looking for a reliable, scalable, and flexible solution already integrated with Cegid Retail.

Amar Dehal, Head of Operations at Cole Buxton, said “As we’ve worked with MWC Partners on the project to implement a new POS solution this year, we’ve learned with each successfully-delivered step of the project that we can trust their expertise and advice. When we found out that MWC Partners had developed the integration between Cegid and Planet, this reinforced our confidence that Planet would be the right choice. And so it is proving to be.”

Steve Watson, Chairman of MWC Partners, said “We are delighted that Cole Buxton have deployed Cegid Retail Y2 and Planet using the payment connector we developed earlier this year. MWC Partners’ approach is to offer independent consultancy and best-of-breed retail solutions to help retailers make IT choices that deliver performance and value for money, and I think our team have done exactly that for Cole Buxton.”
