EPOS TILL SYSTEM SPECIALISTS
Norcon was founded in 1983 by Rob Green and Kim Laws. Kim wrote a piece of software called News Slave to run Home News Delivery (the daily delivery lists for Paperboys (and girls). This was trialed in Rob’s sister’s shop in Borrowash, Derby in 1982.
Having proved the concept, Rob & Kim set up Norcon Computers Limited to sell the software to other Newsagents.
In July 1983 Norcon Computers sold their first licence of News Slave. Within a few months News Slave had been sold into a number of sites in Derby, and was starting to get known further afield.
