High Street photography chain Jessops is teaching 3,000 employees to use an electronic point-of-sale (EPOS) system, brought in to help reduce its business costs by £ 2m a year. Jessops refused to comment on the training programme it plans to adopt, but confirmed that it is introducing a single EPOS system, the Pronto ePOS, to all its 250 stores. Sun Microsystems is supplying an enterprise learning platform, used to evaluate the progress of the training, as well as its StarOffice package, which is used to assess and cut operating costs.
