With enhanced product and technical
understanding, selected dealers will
receive a higher profile as flagship Sharp
EPoS business partners, generating and
converting more sales leads.
Optimise
Commenting on the launch of this
imaginative scheme, Jeff Griffiths,
Sharp ECR/EPoS Business Unit’s
Divisional Manager, said:
“Opportunity knocks for dealers to
optimise their relationship with Sharp
and focus on providing their customers
with the best EPoS solutions.”
“With this exciting new initiative
all accredited dealers should,
collectively, view themselves as
market leaders in our industry.”
“Our scheme benefits dealers and
end users. Increased product
awareness and skills will help win
business, maximise the impact of our
technology and dramatically save
expensive man-hours during install-
ations and after-sales support.” 
The internet plays a key role in the
partnership and access is crucial for
the partnership programme.   
Open to all
This program is open to all Sharp
dealers, although acceptance is based
upon satisfying commercial, organis-
ational support and technical support
requirements. 
Initially, dealers must have a
minimum of two working PC-based
EPoS installations and an active
support structure that includes
hotline telephone support, specialised
product knowledge and training and a
one day response time for on-site
support.
In addition, all support and sales
staff must pass all the tests on the
Sharp EPoS training programme.  
Currently this involves one-day
product training and features &
benefits courses on the ERA770,
UP3300, UP5300 and UP5700 models
together with more general EPoS
manager and Sharp Utilities courses.   
There are also two and four day
technology training courses run by the
Sharp Academy.
Premier
Dealers who satisfy all the criteria
will become a Premier Business
Partner and will be entitled to use the
logo on all their marketing and
promotional material.  
Sharp will also focus its regional
marketing efforts around its Premier
Business Partners to highlight the
mutual commitment to profess-
ionalism.
“We have the products and the
technical support. Our dealers have
the ability and experience to make
this technology work on the front
line,” 
commented Jeff Griffiths.
“We have looked forward to
launching this plan and want all our
dealers to remember that they can
qualify for this special status. If you’re
not ready yet, you may be in six or 12
months time.”
Sharp has launched an innovative Premier Business Partner
Programme to help dealers win more business and increase profitability.  
This exciting development will boost Sharp’s position within the
EPoS industry and give accredited dealers unrivalled product and
technical knowledge.

nology at their disposal. Focusing on

Behind the scenes, staff are
discovering that using the UP5700 is
as simple as painting by numbers.
All four high profile examples of
this work of art in action have focused
on the UP5700 as the integral
element of the total business solution. 
The final product, linked by third
party software, enables end users to
manage their businesses more
effectively and profitably – and paint a
realistic picture of the exact status of
their day’s business whenever they
need it.
With rave reviews up and down the
country, the UP5700 is proving to be
one of the most popular attractions in
the Sharp portfolio.

...all is revealed!
Q1
What is your job title?
A1
Product Support &
Development Controller.
Q2
What are your specific job responsibilities?
A2
To develop ECR and EPoS products suitable for the UK market place in
conjunction with dealers, end-users and the factories in Japan. I also
support, alongside Tony Moran, the UK dealer base on those products.
Q3
How long have you been employed at Sharp?
A3
17 years – which have flown by!
Q4
What is your previous relevant experience?
A4
Q5
How does your relationship with dealers work?
A5
My role is to ensure dealers are familiar and comfortable with Sharp
technology.  Our whole ECR/EPoS product support department is
integral to a dealer’s proposition and our relationship, I hope, is built on
mutual trust.  
Q6
What is the most challenging project that you have worked on?
A6
For sheer size, it has to be the Millennium Dome installation of 140
UP5700’s. We had a mere three months to provide a total solution for
retail and hospitality needs that would be at the cutting edge of
technology.  But every project is a challenge as it is just important to the
end user as the Dome was to the dealer. 
Q7
Which project has given you the most professional satisfaction?
A7
I would say establishing the bulletin board, which is now on the Sharp
Technical website. This gave our dealers access to all technical
documentation. With the increasing popularity of the web, transferring
technical information is even faster and easier.  I remember when the fax
was considered a luxury in offices. And it wasn’t that long ago!
Q8
How can Sharp provide dealers with “added value”?
A8
From a technical and support point of view, the most useful development
has been the adoption of Net Support, which allows us and the dealer to
dial into sites from our laptops and desktop PC’s. Support of sites is much
easier so dealers can offer even better support in an even shorter time.  It
is upto the dealers to take full advantage. 
Q9
Describe your perfect working day?
A9
When I set out to achieve something over the course of the day and succeed.
And when the dealer says thanks for your help, Paul. Fancy a pint!

Wish You Were Here!
Sun, Sangria and Sharp surprises!
HELLO &
GOODBYE
Since the start of the year,
Sharp has introduced
several new products to its
comprehensive portfolio.
These are the ERA160, ERA220,
ERA570C, ERA770 and the
UP5300.
At the same time, a trio of
machines have been delisted.
They are the ER1970, ERA440
and ERA570.
The ERA450 is a direct
replacement for the ERA440,  as
the primary difference is the
addition of a thermal printer on
the new model.
The ERA570C is an upgraded
version of the ERA570, with the
IRC board and IRC ROM included
as standard.
