UCS Software is making waves in the international market and recently signed its first UK software deal, with furniture retailer The Pier, for R1-million. 

UCS's UK distributor, Arnel, was awarded that contract to supply the South African-developed ActiveRetail 4 My Enterprise electronic point of sale (ePOS) software across all 42 of the retailer's  soft furnishing stores.
John Bright, CEO of the UCS Group, says the company was up against stiff competition from leading UK retail solution providers.
Alex Meak, head of IT at The Pier, says the implementation planning began in March.
