Our many partners showcase the ICRTouch brand and the products they are able to provide and support online. An effective website is vital to reaching out and attracting new customers, which our Partners realise. With hundreds of partners across the globe, this award can become quite competitive, resulting in attractive, easy-to-use, informative websites. What is also key in reaching the online market is effective use of social media and other platforms such as TrustPilot.

Panaepos won the Online Presence Of The Year award for a variety of reasons such as clear consistent branding, appealing design & aesthetics, and ease for potential customers to find their favourite ICRTouch products. They are also rated number 1 on TrustPilot for the industry and are consistent with effective use of social media.

ICRTouch like to celebrate the marketing efforts put in by the partner network, as it lets customers know just how accessible ICRTouch partners are throughout the globe. In the UK, for example, there is likely to be an ICRTouch partner within 20 minutes of where you are willing to provide expert local support for your ICRTouch EPoS system.

Media Screen Solutions attended the Restaurant & Takeaway Expo and invested in an impressive stand alongside ICRTouch to showcase the brand in a powerful way.

Forum User Of The Year – SimonTS of Linden Business Systems

To ensure our partners are able to provide top-level support to all their customers ICRTouch provide private training for every partner and a technical support department. However, what you may not know, is ICRTouch have an internal partner forum for all the engineers and tech-whizzes in the EPoS industry to interact and discuss technical issues with each other.

User SimonTS of Linden Business Systems has been a member of the forum since 2014 and has made over 4,000 posts. Simon is very generous with his time, contributing to the communal help, discussions and support behind the scenes for the EPoS community. It is perhaps his constant interaction with other members in the forum that has allowed him to win 2017 forum user of the year as voted for by the members of the ICRTouch partner forum.

The Sophie’s Legacy charity was created in memory of Sophie Fairall, a remarkable young girl who sadly lost her battle with cancer back in 2021. She touched so many lives and, whilst in hospital, wrote a bucket list of wishes that she wanted to be carried out on her behalf. The aim of this list was to improve conditions for children and their families during stays in hospitals.
