We are pleased to announce that, as of today, Lightspeed Retail, our cloud-based POS system, is now available to a select number of UK retailers.
“The ability to now manage our inventory, have access to real-time sales reports, and check customers out via an iPad is very exciting for us. This is the type of innovative sales tool that independent retailers, like ourselves, have been waiting for.”
–David van Eck Head of IT, Jacques Vert Group, London
The UK retail market is in an exciting transitional period and primed for growth. According to Jean-Paul Chauvet, Chief Revenue Officer here at Lightspeed, “Independent shops are driving a sea change in the UK’s retail technology space. Unencumbered by legacy enterprise software, they are free to embrace cloud technology and offer an entirely new sales experience to their customer.”
The launch of Lightspeed Retail in the UK culminates an exciting year for our company. Just over a year ago, we launched Lightspeed Restaurant in Europe, followed quickly by the opening of our new London office, the expansion of customer support to 24/7 to better service our growing international customers and the introduction of a new partnership with leading European mobile payment provider iZettle.
Europe represents a major investment area for Lightspeed and we are aiming to triple the size of our team in the region this year. If you are a UK-based retailer and would like to participate in this initial rollout, you can request a free trial here.

You can keep close tabs on your customers, your inventory, your sales, and ultimately, your success.”
“With Lightspeed we can see exactly what’s happening day-to-day, be more efficient and we have the time to focus on what’s really important: our customers.”
