The last 18 months have been incredibly difficult for many businesses, as it has for charities.

The GSPCA would normally raise around 50% of its income through pet boarding and other services but due to 2 lock downs and travel restrictions it has been extremely difficult for the Animal Shelter to raise the £2,000 a day its costs to care for the 1,000’s of animals that come through the doors every year.

As with any organisation the GSPCA requires a system to record and process transactions from donations to sales and pet boarding.

The GSPCA was recently approached by Checkout CI who already support the Shelter by promoting events through their Enjoy Guernsey Web app.

CheckOut CI Ltd is the leading provider of electronic point of sale solutions within the Guernsey Bailiwick and are proud to support the GSPCA and the local community.

The business consists of 3 operations, Checkout CI, Enjoy CI and Digital CI. The group of companies has some 680 customers in hospitality, retail and distribution within the Channel Islands. Their services range from full IT solutions, EPOS consumables, and PDQ machines to digital advertising, websites, and customised apps.

At the GSPCA we now have a Sumni touch screen till providing our point of sale and the GSPCA are hugely grateful to Checkout CI for their support and services.

Steve Byrne, GSPCA Manager said, “It was lovely to meet Mike from CheckOut CI recently to discuss our challenges and work here at the GSPCA with over 300 animals in our care.”

“Our till system is used 7 days a week and we weren’t happy with the system we had and when we spoke to CheckOut CI and saw what they could help with it really looked ideal.”

“We have been using the new Sumni device for a few months and it really is fantastic and so user friendly and from our boarding service to retail stock, donations to our many other services it is proving to be a fantastic assist and you can even see what is happening and make changes by logging in to an online portal.”

“CheckOut CI are offering us as the GSPCA a fantastic discount as they really what to help our vital work with animals and the community.”

“We cannot thank CheckOut CI enough for their support.”

Sarah Langlois, GSPCA Team Member & Receptionist said “The new till system is really fantastic.”

“It is so easy to use, I really do like it.”

“The Sumni with CheckOut is so much better than other till systems I have used and really enjoy using it.”

Mike Le Conte, Managing Director of Checkout CI said: “We are delighted to help GSPCA with their new point of sale system.

Supporting the local community is one of CheckOut CI’s guiding principles, and the work that Steve and his team at the GSPCA do is second to none.”

“It has been an exceptionally difficult 18 months for us all – none more so than charities like the GSPCA. We look forward working with them – and our other community partners – as we move out of the pandemic and into more certain times.

Steve continued “We love to hear from businesses wanting to support and help our work at the GSPCA.”

“There are so many ways to support from donating to your time, services to training, please do get in touch if you think your business or group could help us here at the GSPCA.”
