WebPOS Solution Will Help the Independent Retailer Cut Costs Significantly and Improve Business Efficiencies

KNOWSLEY, England, February 23, 2011 - Ingenico, the world's leading provider of payment solutions in
partnership with Cybertill, the UK's leading EPoS and e-commerce provider,
have today launched WebPOS - a revolutionary point of sale solution for
single store independent retailers, which could spell the end of the cash

WebPOS combines Ingenico's best of breed point of sale hardware, the
iWP200 series, with Cybertill's Retail Store One, a cloud-based EPoS
software, specifically designed for independent retailers. WebPOS is an all
in one integrated solution that not only improves payment processing, but
also manages stock, tracks customer preferences, generates reports on fast
moving products and slow sellers, and will even help to reduce theft.

By automating many of the processes that retailers currently carry out
manually, the solution provides small retailers with significant time and
cost savings, whilst increasing the efficiency of their business operations.
The solution will go to pilot in a number of independent retailers in April
and rolled out nationally thereafter.

Craig Doyle, Managing Director, Northern Europe, Ingenico,
commented: "We are very pleased to partner with Cybertill, allowing us to
offer such a cost effective, high performance EPoS solution to the smaller
retail market. Knowledge is power, especially in business, and WebPOS will
provide small retailers with the business insights of a supermarket, helping
them to manage and grow their business more efficiently.

"At Ingenico, we pride ourselves on leading the market with
innovative, cutting-edge solutions that go beyond payment. The WebPOS
solution will enable retailers to enrich their customers shopping experience
and help increase repeat footfall."

Ian Tomlinson, CEO, of Cybertill, commented: "This transformation in
point of sale technology means that independent store owners no longer have
to face the complexity of managing an EPoS system, whilst trying to focus on
the day job of running their business. By providing access to Cybertill from
any location with an internet connection, our customers no longer need to
invest in additional systems, such as back office hardware, resulting in
significant cost savings."

Ingenico's sleek, web-based point of sale terminal, the iWP200, boasts a
compact footprint and all-in-one solution, including a built in receipt
printer. It incorporates a large, colour touch screen and an optional second
screen designed to increase interaction with customers by, for example,
informing customers of up to the minute promotions. The terminal uses
broadband to process card payments, leading to much faster payment
processing. This connection is also used to connect to Cybertill's Retail
Store One which features quick entry keys (called hotshots) helping to speed
up Point of Sale transactions, whilst linking seamlessly to other areas of
the system such as stock and purchase order processing.

Retailers are able to successfully and economically manage the back
office, stock levels, purchase orders, sales and CRM using one full market
solution. WebPOS is a cloud-based system, but with Ingenico's payment
processing element sitting on Ingenico's Axis platform, ensuring it is a
fully PCI-DSS managed solution for retailers. In the event where the internet
connectivity with the 'cloud' fails, the solution will still be able to
process payment transactions offline or revert to the GPRS network.

      internet from any location;

    - Allows retailers to focus on managing their business by

      and upgrades.
