Five reasons to visit the KFP stand at RTS 2023

KFP Blog - April 11, 2023

There are so many reasons and motivations to attend an event like the Retail Technology Show 2023 at Olympia in London on 26th/27th April – With over 25 years of supporting the retail and hospitality industry with our best-in-class IT services, we thought that it would be useful to offer five additional reasons to come and visit us on stand 6C38 (as well as for refreshments and a friendly chat!).


Number 1 – Our vision for the future

The KFP team have now been supporting retailers, hospitality and convenience businesses across the UK & Europe for over 25 years.

As a result, we offer truly bespoke, specialised & tailored retail IT services based on our experience of what customers need. 

From our small beginnings employing a handful of UK based staff, we have grown and built a services-based business generating approx. £20m in revenue across a number of UK & European entities – all geared to supporting our customers in the retail, hospitality & convenience sectors. But our aspirations don’t end there – we continue to open more satellite offices across Europe and employ our own staff in these regions to continually build our reach & deliver the consistently high service levels and pragmatic approach that our customers love. 

To learn more about how we can help your retail, hospitality, or convenience business thrive across Europe, please contact us.


Number 2 – Retail Infrastructure Services

KFP are unique in the retail services space – we specialise on the infrastructure. Our clients work with us for this reason.

We can advise on the underlying infrastructure in a retail, hospitality or convenience location that underpins all the software, applications, and customer interactions.

If your locations need expert services such as structured cabling, networking, cab management or wireless networking - and beyond this layer, solutions around back of house IT, traffic counting, point of sale or kiosks – KFP are the partner who can help. Whether installing, rolling out or supporting, we focus on the infrastructure layer in store that keep our clients trading.

To learn more about how we can help your business with our Retail Infrastructure services, please contact us.


Number 3 – Connectivity

Technology has come along in leaps and bounds since the days when we were reliant on the 56.6k dial up modem. Almost every business has some form of connectivity to the outside world and more importantly with the advent of cloud-based technology, a resilient connection has become paramount.

It is difficult to calculate the loss to a retail or hospitality business if the POS cannot connect to complete a sale, or a delivery to a warehouse cannot be booked in.

By the end of 2024 over 60% of businesses are expected to be looking at 5G technology, not just for the resilience element of their connectivity, but also to replace traditional wired/fibre implementations.

To learn more about how we can help your stores estate with Connectivity and Resilience offerings from Cradlepoint, please contact us.


Number 4 – Point of Sale (POS)

Point of Sale is the lifeblood of any retail outlet. 

Whether you are looking for hardware replenishment, roll out & installation expertise or on-site break/fix support, KFP are the partner who can understand your hardware requirements & translate this into a solution that pushes efficiency whilst driving an enhanced customer experience. From traditional POS systems or mobile devices through to self-serving kiosks, we work with the leading POS vendors to find the right solutions for your business.

Number 5 – Support

Whether in retail, hospitality, or convenience – trade means everything. 

KFP help our clients focus in on trade and remove the burden of store staff worrying about IT. 

We offer a variety of support services for our clients - from straight forward onsite break/fix services to helpdesk functions offering triage, 1st/2nd line and remote support, through to managed agent-based endpoint automation platforms to deliver truly bespoke IT admin functions and features - all of which are designed to ensure minimal trade disruption for our clients. 

To learn more about our innovative Support Solutions, please contact us.


We are looking forward to welcoming you to the KFP stand 6C38 at Olympia in London on 26th/27th April to learn more.

To make an appointment in advance with one of the KFP experts, please do not hesitate to contact the KFP Sales Team at or call on 44 (0) 1235 539101.


“Any retailer thinking of upgrading their current in-store IT systems really should come over and see how KFP can support them.”
