About us

Our Story

Headquartered in West Bromwich, West Midlands, the Langley Compass Group is an award-winning provider of EPOS, payment solutions, software development and IT services to the Hospitality, Retail and Leisure industries.

Originally established by Alan Cox in 1984, the business has remained in family ownership for almost 40 years.

Starting life as ‘EM Services’, we originally specialised in the provision of butchery and bakery equipment and cash registers for chains like Greggs, Super Snaps and Fruity Fruits.

In 1992, Richard Cox, Alan’s son, joined the business and worked alongside his father as the business went from strength to strength.

With a passion for continued growth and development, we were quick to embrace the emerging digital technology in payment systems, and acquired ‘Langley Business Systems’, a dedicated EPOS and business solutions provider, in 2000.

Our success story continued, and in 2021 we added ‘Compass Computers’ to our family business and thus the ‘Langley Compass Group’ was formed.

Our Values

Our Commitment

Customer service is of paramount importance to us and we treat all of our clients equally and with respect.

Whilst many businesses found themselves derailed by the pandemic, we provided a fast, effective and proactive response for their clients, including the fast-track provision and installation of handheld ‘Order and Pay’ EPOS devices into hundreds of retail, hospitality and sports stadiums across the Midlands.

We worked with our clients to ensure they were better able to withstand the disruption, and effectively adapt to changing Government regulations and safely reopen their doors.

As well as providing expert advice, knowledge and industry experience, our experts are on hand to provide our clients with 24/7 service and support. We are committed to delivering the highest standard of customer service to ensure nothing disrupts their business.
