About Robert Dyas: A Premier Homeware Retailer in England
Robert Dyas, a renowned retailer with a rich history dating back to 1872, operates 96 stores across the South of England. The company, owned by entrepreneur Theo Paphitis since 2012, specializes in offering a wide array of homeware products, small electrical items, gardening essentials, consumer goods, and DIY items.
Additionally, the retailer connected NetTickIT to handheld terminals, enabling staff to “order” any missing or extra point of sale material, such as sticky labels or barkers, as they navigate the store. These ordered materials could be later collected from a back-office printer. The point of sale materials were printed following the store’s walk order, reducing staff time and facilitating a flexible and dynamic system for rolling out promotions and ticketing across stores.
