As mentioned above, Anchor Data Systems originated from the former German based company, Anker which began manufacturing their own branded cash registers around the beginning of the 20th century.
In the years which followed, Anker went on to become on of the most prominent cash register manufacturers throughout Europe and often countered the growing dominance of NCR who are recognised as the company that invented the world’s first cash register.
Anker continued to grow throughout the years and during the 1950’s and 1960’s they entered the rising new market for electronic-based cash registers and accounting equipment. During this time Anker had several branches throughout the UK and Northern Ireland.
As the 1990’s approached Anker began a strategy of restructuring the entire company which included targeting specific areas of growth and expanding their EPOS hardware and software portfolio. Similtaneously a process of reorganisation took place with many regional branches throughout the UK being downsized or closed altogether.
It was during this time that three former employees decided on a course of action to buy-out the existing Anker business previously located at Anker House on York Road, Belfast. Anchor Data Systems (NI) Ltd was officially established during November 1995.
These former employees along with several existing members of staff relocated to the current premises located at the North City Business Centre, just a few miles from the former site.
Only a few of the original Anker team remain with the new company today. They continue to pass on their pearls of wisdom to the newer members of staff as well as many of our customers. During the relocation we managed to hold on to practically all of our previous customer base whilst establishing an expanding clientele through the development of exciting new hardware and software solutions for a variety of hospitality and retail industries.
You will find that we now offer a vast product catalog which is available by browsing through this site. You may also be surprised to learn that we still offer several original Anker products such as Cash Drawers and Cassettes.
