2020 Exhibitors

VME Coop

VME Coop is the largest supplier of technology to the independent consumer societies; from the tills right through to head office. Since 1997, we have helped 18 different UK coops solve their technology problems. Our FRTS Link software runs in 9 of the 13 independent coops, and 44% of the 1,400 stores run VME Coop software.

Societies use us because our solution includes everything needed to run a consumer coop, because it’s a proven system that is constantly keeping VME’s coop customers on the latest technology, and because they know the more coops using VME, the lower the price for all consumer coops.

VME Coop’s purpose is to see consumer coops grow market share; by helping the independent coop movement thrive, opening new stores, and hopefully even help new independent coops to be created. We do this by reducing their costs, and helping them be as efficient as possible, by using technology. www.vme.coop
