TLM’s new estate management software allows retailers to watch over multiple sites from a central location, keeping on top of rents, repairs, and maintenance.

EPOS and technology support firm TLM Technologies has launched a new estate management module to its back office data management system.

The latest edition to TLM’s evoHeadOffice solution, the estate management module allows retailers operating multi-property estates to centralise control over multiple areas of the business, from core operations and finances to business performance and customer insight.

The management system is built on Microsoft Dynamics NAV – a resource planning software designed for medium sized businesses – and developed by TLM sister business Ocean Dynamics.

TLM’s estate management software allows retailers to control the operational processes involved in running multi-site operations. The package runs in conjunction with finance and reporting capabilities, allowing retailers to further automate and streamline their business processes while enforcing best-practice and providing powerful cross-organisation visibility.

Processes supported by the new estate management tool include physical property oversight for the entire estate, rents, operator and management changes, repairs and maintenance.

Lee Papper, chief executive of TLM, said: “We are very excited to introduce this new functionality to the convenience and fuel market, further enhancing the appeal of our industry-leading head office solution to organisations running large estates of properties.”

The new estate management module allows retailers to centralise control over multiple areas of their business.

• Jonathan James, a convenience and fuel sector retailer with 20 years of industry experience, has joined the board of TLM Technologies as a non-executive director.

James’ retailing experience includes time spent in a number of high-profile roles including a stint as ACS chairman and NACS international committee member, as well as chairman of James Convenience Retail, which has stores across England and Wales.

With his business James Graven & Sons, James spent 12 years working as a forecourt operator and now leases the company’s five forecourt sites to other operators.

TLM boss Lee Papper said: “We are very excited to have Jonathan join the team; he brings so much to TLM, from his vast practical retail experience to his incredible reputation as a role model for entrepreneurial retailers.

“Jonathan will without doubt prove to be an invaluable addition to our board, our wider team, and our customers and partners.”
