Latest order significantly extends the relationship between The Henderson Group and Glory

Basingstoke, UK – 1st February, 2023 – Glory (TYO: 6457), a global leader in retail cash automation solutions today announced that major Northern Ireland retailer Henderson Group, has signed a substantial multi million pound order with the company for both point of sale (POS) and back-office cash recycling solutions, along with a 7 year maintenance agreement. Comprising 208 CI-10 POS solutions and 24 CI-100 back-office solutions, the latest order continues to strengthen the relationship between the two companies as the new technology is installed across Henderson company owned stores and their independent retailer estate, building on their last order placed in 2021.

Henderson Group owns the SPAR, EUROSPAR, ViVO, ViVOXTRA and ViVO Essentials franchises in Northern Ireland and operates a portfolio of more than 100 company stores, and supplies to around 400 independently owned stores. The Group is committed to delivering the latest retail technology in their stores to enable their retailers to deliver an exceptional customer experience to their shoppers. Glory’s CASHINFINITY solutions help Henderson Group to meet customer demands and choice in the way they order, pay, and are served while optimising cash handling from point of sale to the back office.
