Charity Multi-channel Retail Banner


The future of retail is multi-channel. Successful retailers will need to have a real time, single view of customers, inventory and orders. The channel is for the customer to decide.

IAN TOMLINSON, founder & CEO of Cybertill

Cybertill started life as sketch on a napkin in a pizzeria, by founder and CEO, Ian Tomlinson, way back in 2001.  Ian’s idea was for retailers to have their retail software hosted online – at the time the term used to describe this was Application Service Provider (ASP). This would allow retailers’ shops, ecommerce sites and mail order operations to all share the same product and customer file from a single database. Essentially meaning that retailers and customers could see live stock levels in-store, online and over the phone.

In the early years Cybertill was aimed primarily at ‘high street retail’. But in 2007 Cybertill developed a gift aid solution specifically for charity retailers and soon after British Red Cross became a customer. Fast forward to the here and now and there are over 100 charity retailers using Cybertill in thousands of locations. Cybertill provides a high street multi-channel retail solution as well as a charity retail system. 

Today, Cybertill is based on the outskirts of Liverpool, in Knowsley, and employees over 90 people and continues to flourish with hundreds retailers using the Cybertill system across many different sectors. Cybertill’s retail customers include many well-known names including Virgin Media, F. Hinds, Floors 2 Go, Cancer Research, British Red Cross, Oxfam Ireland to name but a few.
