MarginMaker2 EPoS

Optima Information Systems to take over support, maintenance and development of the MarginMaker2 EPOS system

The BTC Board are pleased to announce that on 1st November 2014 responsibility for the maintenance, support and development of the Finsoft MarginMaker2 software operated by BTC members moved from Gtech to Optima Information Systems. This change has the full support of the BTC Board and we thank Gtech for their efforts in the past and look forward to working with Optima in the future.

As part of the new agreement with Optima we are pleased to announce that the purchase cost of till licences will drop to £500 per till. This is a saving of £1,300 per till, £2,600 for a shop with two tills.
