    EDGEPoS partnership with NearSt to make products on shelves visible in online search

    Leading EPOS software solution supplier Henderson Technology has announced a partnership with retail technology firm NearSt.

    Founded in 2015, the technology from NearSt was developed to make products on physical store shelves visible to shoppers searching online nearby. Businesses like Google use the technology to show real-time local product availability directly in search results.

    “It is a very simple way for retailers to establish an online Google presence, with triggered updates every 15 minutes between EDGEPoS and NearSt. It is a very clever way for local retailers to compete with supermarkets and promote their products, promotions and stock through ‘near me’ searches on Google,” Darren Nickels, retail technology operations director at Henderson Technology, said.

    Nickels added that NearSt will be offered to the EDGEPoS network across the UK.

    The technology has seen widespread uptake by British retailers as a low-effort but powerful tool to fight back against the might of large online retailers. Retailers spanning convenience, DIY and garden centres, health, pharmacies, and luxury fashion and jewellers are all using the platform.

    Nick Brackenbury, co-founder and chief executive of NearSt, said: “People are increasingly getting used to going online even to do the simplest of grocery shops, so this is also the perfect post-pandemic solution for those who want the convenience of online and the ability to shop locally.”

    Henderson Technology is one of the largest EPOS suppliers in UK with over 700 sites globally.
