Are you in need of a Retail Technology Upgrade?
What should you do once you have sweated the asset?
Technology refresh work is common amongst our customer base. We provide a leading Retail IT refresh service including upgrading your hardware and network infrastructure to replacing your POS & PED device terminals across your retail estate.

Upgrading? Relocating? or Expanding?
Replacement technology is a necessity in retail. As the demand for a personalised service in-store becomes more expected and customers demanding more, it's important that the technology is robust and able to work and remain reliable during busy trading hours.
Managed by our sales and projects team and carried out by our highly-skilled engineers, we can replace:
- POS terminals
- PED devices
- Network & cabling infrastructure
- Wireless technology
Relocating your store to a different location or assistance with creating a pop-up store is one of our key services. We ensure your relocation to a new site is as seamless as possible. We can move your IT equipment from point A to B as a simple relocation, we can store your equipment in our warehouse until the new store is ready to be installed, the service is totally bespoke to you.
Expanding your retail estate is a major investment, therefore, must be done right, and with the right partner. KFP has the skills, expertise and experience in opening new retail stores, exceeding expectations, on time and within budget.
We work with many of our retail customers who are expanding into new locations and we will take our customer from an empty store and install everything IT related ensuring the store is ready for the open day.

Refitting your stores with new technology
Many stores are now looking to modernise in order to keep up with the development in the ever-changing retail climate. A new store may consist of new technology, new layout and design, or simply replacing damaged equipment. If you are looking to increase space around popular selling items and therefore require technology to follow suit, we can help. If it's new POS terminals you require, we can help.
Relocating your store can often be driven by the desire to improve your store's profitability, by enhancing either the convenience of a store’s location or the store environment, to better satisfy your customers' needs. When relocating, a considerable amount of time, resources, research, planning and effort will be invested by all departments within KFP to ensure your relocation is a success.

We work hard to minimise the impact on trading in all situations.
Retailers must be able to keep continue trading when having a technology refresh project rolled out in-store.
For your peace of mind, we are able to minimise any disruption within your stores by supplying a Cradlepoint device from the leaders in 4F failover. Should any issues arise with no telco line, network failure or any other issue, we ensure you're still able to trade.
In need of a technology change in-store?
Once we have fully understood the specification of your new technology upgrade, our leading project team plan the implementation phase. After this, they prepare installation procedures, build instructions and sign-off documentation.
This includes formal feedback procedures (reporting, conference calls and meetings) as well as collaboration mechanisms for any third parties involved.
The goal is to provide a seamless technology rollout with minimal disruption to current trading on time and within budget.
