Zonal Culture & Approach:

  • Our company values; Passion, Professionalism, Innovation and Teamwork (Customer + Zonal), are reflected in the way we engage with customers and their business change projects. Throughout the company a “Get It Done” attitude ensures we remain focused on a customer’s business needs first and the dust on the contract remains suitably undisturbed.
  • Our implementation, training and field service people are instructed to work until the job is finished and not to the contracted hours. This allows us to absorb the day-to-day challenges of complex IT and people change projects and deliver the necessary results.


  • Our view is that in a dynamic, modern business, the role of EPOS goes considerably further than simply PoS. Our “BIG EPoS” strategy has delivered a highly integrated set of service and consumer tools that offers better control, efficient management and a wide range of options to integrate the guest relationship into EPoS data and processes
  • We have invested heavily in delivering robust APIs to connect Zonal solution components to each other and support the highly functional integration of 3rd  party components
  • We understand the ROI pressure on IT investment and focus on making our solutions work on existing infrastructure and hardware whenever possible. We pay close attention to cost effective scalability of our solutions allowing the full turnover range of a customer’s site to benefit from solutions such as table management or kitchen management
  • 100% of our technical & operational intellect and investment is focused on the demands of multiple site retailers
  • The current environment and expectation of trading whilst conforming to  social distances measures has seen a huge spike in Order & Pay, Click & Collect and Takeaway capabilities.

The foundation of our “BIG EPoS” solution set is a single, comprehensive and robust EPoS platform reflecting the accumulated experience gained over 40 years.
