Deal: Principal Investment
Date: November 2013
Shopwave is a cloud-based, omni-channel electronic point of sale system (EPoS) for retailers. It is suitable for all retailers, from a pop-up to a global estate, and delivers enterprise level reporting and management tools.
The Company has developed an open API platform which enables a retailer to utilise other technologies through the platform (eg. Queue jumping app) and is significantly cheaper than the incumbents. Multi-currency merchant processing is provided by First Data.
It was built and is run by the team that founded Vouchacha, which was acquired as part of Markomedia in a deal worth £55m by Monetise PLC.
The partners of Ironbridge have invested in the company (November 2013) and have board representation.
