PXtech careers, new hires as we grow for the future
Nathe, Luke, Amy, Rob

Rob steps into a new role for us here at PXtech; our first ever DevOps Engineer! Responsible for driving automation within the team, Rob will ensure that quality is built in to all of our software build and deployment processes.

Nathe will be splitting his time between two roles: Business Analyst and Trainee Developer. Keen to learn the ropes of code, he’ll bring his BA experience while working towards fulfilling his ambition of becoming a developer.

Luke brings five years’ QA experience in to the business and is an expert at leading teams to top quality success. We’re strong believers that there’s always room to be better and Luke will be on hand to see where we can improve our solutions to add even more value for our customers.

Amy’s enthusiasm and fresh perspective joins the team, taking on the HR administration along with management of the office environment. Working in a previous life for a building society, she’s well equipped to deal with an array of characters – and she’ll sure find some in the PXtech office!

Duncan brings some serious coding skills to the team in his role as Senior Developer. Although he always wanted to be a train driver growing up, we’re personally very glad he didn’t choose that career path and stuck to computers instead.

Among the new starters, Leilani, a well-known face here at PXtech, begins her new role as Head of Change.

PXtech forms joint venture focusing on the Midlands hospitality sector

Derby-based PXtech, the expert in the tailoring and delivery of EPoS and business intelligence software, is embarking on a Midlands hospitality campaign after forging a partnership with a leading Point of Sale solutions provider ICRTouch.

Through its partnership with EPoS software and systems specialist ICRTouch, PXtech’s knowledgeable support team is set to help countless businesses in the hospitality sector to work more smartly and smoothly, and project a professional image to customers.

From takeaways and cafes to fine dining establishments, all can get real benefits from the way the latest ICRTouch front end EPOS solutions will be coupled with the PXtech back office business intelligence and hardware. The complete solution will provide a full end to end ecosystem for the customer to manage their hospitality business effectively.

PXtech’s clients will benefit from a solution that has had 20 years of development time invested alongside continual updates as the industry has evolved. ICRTouch solutions have proven reliability across an install base of 100,000 that is continuing to expand.

Richard Dorf, CEO at PXtech, said: “It’s not unusual for many businesses in the hospitality sector to operate back-office systems on a variety of platforms, often with disparate and sometimes outmoded hardware. PXtech specialises in providing effective, results driven solutions to give businesses greater control and insight, and help them profitably grow.”

ICRTouch and PXtech were introduced a number of years ago on a retail project that both companies were involved with. More recently, PXtech has found a need to strengthen its hospitality offering and ICRTouch was an obvious choice based on our past success together.”

Richard added: “Reliable and harmonious technology is essential to your business if you want to maximise profits. Not only does it provide a more practical way of trading but also brings many other benefits too.

“The right EPOS solution can help you keep track of employee productivity, stay in control of stock levels, and spot (and stop) potential fraudulent activity. If used correctly, the right technology can help you to significantly boost ROI – a must for any hospitality business!”

Chris Newte at ICRTouch added: “Having completed a successful pilot project, we see a huge benefit that could come from two market-leading EPOS solutions providers working together to provide high quality products and a great service to customers.”

The new joint venture will look to target SMEs, multi-site groups and high-profile hospitality clients across the Midlands.
