Blackwell’s boosts book sales with itim’s mobile technology

hundred off-site book-selling events a year.

Mobile point-of-sale technology through retail software provider, itim, has contributed to increased sales of physical books and cut administrative tasks by almost forty hours a week in the busiest weeks for many outlets. The retailer has supported £500,000 sales in the last year on the new mobile devices at off-site events.
