More information about Retail Solutions' acquisition of Justscan

1st September, 2016


After 20 years in business, we are delighted to announce that JustScan have been successfully acquired by leading POS provider Retail Solutions. The acquisition will immediately strengthen team numbers, technical expertise and product range for this long established Tuam based company and its customers (old and new). Retail Solutions, experts in the Convenience, Supermarket, Forecourt and Hardware Sectors have been keen over the last number of years to extend their presence in the Pharmacy and Fashion Markets and are delighted to say that the opportunity couldn't have come at a better time.

"This acquisition opens an exciting period of opportunity for both businesses. It is a strong fit for RS and reinforces our strategic focus to be the leading POS provider in Ireland.", said Jarlath Hennelly, Managing Director. "JustScan represents another step in our goal to expand our market share into the sectors where JustScan operates through the proven abilities of their great team. Through JustScan, we will have a good market share from which we can build and this would have taken far more considerable cost & time to achieve organically. We're delighted to count on the expertise of JustScan's management and staff and we welcome them to the Retail Solutions team."

We set out on our journey in 1996 to provide user friendly, affordable solutions for Independent Retailers that would help them manage their businesses more efficiently and in turn generate more profit. With hundreds of installations under our belt, we certainly achieved our goal of becoming one of the leading retail scanning specialists in Ireland.

"This acquisition is a merging together of two innovative and professional companies who hold similar values and philosophy for doing business, and encourage honesty and integrity at all times. This was a priority for me in my search to find a suitable acquiring company. My staff and customers deserve nothing less!" stated Niamh O'Brien, Managing Director, JustScan Ltd.
