Miura Systems Expands EMEA-Wide Reach with Leading Distributor Westcoast Limited
Tie-up will bring a range of beautifully designed, affordable payment devices to merchants of all sizes.
Miura Systems is delighted to announce a new partnership with one of the UK’s leading IT distributors, Westcoast Limited. The deal will bring Miura’s range of innovative card payment and POS platforms to an even wider customer base.
Westcoast Payment Systems is wholly owned by Westcoast – a £1bn+ annual revenue distributor regularly named in the Sunday Times Top Track of the 100 Largest Privately Owned UK Companies. With a passion for IT and a reputation for excellence, Westcoast has been a leading distributor of IT and electronics for its customers since 1984.
Its strategy for success over that time has been a “narrow and deep” approach. This sees Westcoast partner with only a select few of the world’s technology providers whilst offering a full range of their products and services.
Westcoast will be able to expand into the payments space by offering an extensive range of Miura card payment devices, peripherals and exciting new tablet POS hardware.
These span from one of the world’s most successful mPOS chip and PIN device, the Shuttle, to the latest offering, the Miura ITP, which provides a sophisticated all-in-one POS system for the tablet POS generation.
It is products like these that have propelled Miura Systems in just a few short years to one of the top three fastest growing UK firms, according to the Sunday Times SME Export Track 100. Miura has designed its products to be used in conjunction with smartphones, tablets and traditional point of sale solutions. Innovations such as remote key injection, (standard on all products) and their unique Revive™ functionality have been driving mass adoption, at an extremely fast rate.
With 17 facilities across EMEA and offices over the UK and Ireland, Westcoast will help Miura take the next step to business success by reaching even more merchants.
Mark Roberts, SVP Sales comments on the partnership, “We are delighted to be partnering with Westcoast Payment Systems to distribute our products across Europe. From being able to provide a micro merchant with a single device peripheral on a next day basis, to offering retailers end to end POS solutions across Europe, aligns perfectly with our growth strategy over the coming years.”
Sunil Madani, CFO Westcoast Payment Systems says “For over 30 years, Westcoast has delivered exemplary logistics and distribution services to some of the largest brands in their respective fields. We believe that the partnership with Miura Systems and their innovative approach to payment technology hardware will lead to a mutually beneficial partnership and provide Miura customers with the level of service they require for years to come.
