Robin Knox & Paul Walton co-founded intelligentpos, an electronic tablet based Point of Sale system, in 2012 and launched the app in 2013. intelligentpos was born out of a friendship forged at night. Robin and Paul met while working in a Scottish nightclub in 2009. Following on from their nightclub days, Robin set up two businesses (an indoor paintball operation and, later on, a vape shop), he discovered there was a lack of affordable EPOS options available in the UK and asked his friend Paul to design a tablet based EPOS system for him. After a year of working from their kitchen table they moved into their first office in 2014 and now intelligentpos employees over 50 people with plans to increase this even further.
In September 2016 it was announced that mobile payments Swedish company iZettle had acquired intelligentpos. The merger was a natural step in the evolution of both companies as it provides a ‘one-stop-shop’ for commerce in store and on the go. Together iZettle and intelligentpos allow small businesses to take card payments and use hundreds of different features to make the management and the growth of their customers’ companies much easier.
