cash 4 clothes ‘weigh & pay’ system

European Textile Recycling Limited trading as ‘Cash4Clothes‘ has been established since 1996, and were the first company in the UK to start paying the general public for their unwanted clothing.

cash for clothes eposC4C contacted us to code a bespoke software system that would control and take a weight from industrial digital scales, convert to a value, print receipts, operate the till system, and calculate how much the operator should pay the customer.

We combined this with an internal CCTV system ( from our sister company – iFacility ) that monitored both footfall and security, as well as recording each transaction – including a snapshot of both the till opening and the cash being given, along with evidence of the goods being for clothes app

Finally we wrote a simple but secure iPad app for all directors to get live stats of clothing levels, money spent and also monitor live and recorded images.

Cash4Clothes has gone from strength to strength, with 25 stores now open, and more and more people choosing to recycle, rather than dump, their clothes – all aided by our system.
