Tower Systems welcomes another EDI partner

Tower Systems is thrilled to partner with Sprint3, a mature and respected EDI platform.

Being certified with Sprint3 integration is another point of difference retailers using our Point of Sale software are able to rely on as they seek out new supplier partnerships and more efficient and reliable ways of conducting business.

Using Sprint3 in connection with a range of suppliers retailers will be able to export a purchase order and import an associated invoice. In addition to saving considerable time, the electronic connection will significantly reduce keystrokes and data mistakes.

This latest EDI integration from Tower Systems continues our leadership position in several specialist retail marketplaces.

Sharing sales data with retail suppliers

Since partnering with the Australian Sporting Goods Association we have started working with new suppliers on sharing data between retailers and suppliers.  This work leverages our considerable work in the EDI space across a range of marketplaces.

Being able to offer easy access to EDI standards trading around supply, ordering and return of inventory makes it easier to connect retailers and their suppliers.

Given that ASGA suppliers operate across multiple retail channels, we are able to add value to existing customers as well as to those from the new channel opened up for us as a result of the ASGA relationship.

Retailers can receive and quickly process electronic invoices and can send to suppliers sales data as well as electronic orders.

This data exchange can reduce paperwork, streamline supply and strengthen retailer / supplier relationships.  For retailers, a significant benefit can be a reduction in floor and back office stock with no impact on sales.  For suppliers, the benefit can be certainty around orders from retailers.

Tower Systems has implemented such electronic links in several marketplaces with excellent success.  The company can introduce ASGA members to suppliers and retailers already using these facilities to explore how they may benefit the ASGA family.

Danks link to help Garden centre software shine

The new Danks EDI link released for our Garden Centre and Nursery Point of Sale software will help these retailers improve retail business efficiency, bring structure to inventory ordering and drive consistency to inventory management.

The Danks link is another in a long line of EDI links we have delivered through our Point of Sale software. It strengthens our EDI credentials and promotes Tower Systems to a new field of retailers.  What we have learnt in our ranks link work is informing our discussions and work with suppliers in other marketplaces where EDI integration is not as advanced as the latest from Danks.

The Danks experience has a wonderful pay-off in sectors outside the Garden Centre / Nursery channel.

Tower AdvantageTM Retailers using our software can access the Danks link without additional costs.

New supplier added to Point of Sale software EDI mix

We are thrilled to have completed acceptance testing of an EDI link between our Point of Sale software and the IT infrastructure of a major national supplier.  This new link is available  now for access by our customers.

The new EDI link opens our retail partners to a new supplier with a very interesting product mix, a product mix which appeals across several retail channels in which we operate.  It will be of immediate use too some customers and of interest to others who may wish to open an account with the new supplier.

We are pleased to have opened a new supply opportunity for many of our customers with the release of this new EDI link.

Like all EDI links, this has been developed to the standards set by the supplier with which our retail partners will transact.  The quality assurance process was strict and time consuming.  The result is an EDI link our customers can trust and appreciate for the time it will save their businesses.  The link is provided with documentation to ease use and ensure that our customers are able to connect with the supplier with little delay or fuss.

Access to the new EDI link is by way of our latest point of Sale software update.  This is available to all Tower AdvantageTM customers at no additional cost.

Since not all software companies with which we compete have this link we are not publishing details here.  We like the competitive advantage.  Our customers can contact us using the usual channels for details.

New Point of Sale Software EDI Link Set to Launch

We are working through the final acceptance testing with a national and respected supplier which will see us being able to deliver electronic invoices and other EDI capacities to retailers using our Point of Sale software.

This new EDI link is with a supplier which usually only links with POS vendors who serve mass market retailers so it will be a pleasure to bring access to their electronic invoices and stock files to our small business and independent retailers.  For many this will open the range of products they have easy access to.

We will name the new suppliers once we are live as it will be coup in our marketplace.

This latest work is a coup for our software development team.  It also demonstrates out commitment to continue to enhance the benefits our retail partners can access through the use of our Point of Sale software.

Connecting retail businesses with e-commerce sites through Point of Sale software

Connecting key data from a physical retail store with an e-commerce website run by the same business is a logical step for Point of Sale software.  Such a connection enables the business to better manage stock, customers and the overall operation.

The challenges of connecting two quite different businesses and technologies are considerable, as we have found out this year.

We have developed such a connection, linking our Point of Sale software with e-commerce solutions.  We plan to release this soon, once it has undergone robust testing in-house and in the field.

The project has taken considerable time as we had to research the requirements and thoroughly fully understand the nature of data channels to various e-commerce software packages.  The result is a unique facility, something exclusive to Tower Systems.

We have deliberately not written or talked about this commercially valuable project before now to better protect our intellectual property and to retain for us the value of first mover advantage.  As we are in a position to demonstrate the new facility we’re ready to announce our innovation to the world. No one can say they have what we have already since we have not shown anyone what we have.

Our software development team is always innovating.  The direction of this work is is a mixture of internal innovation, customer encouraged innovation and innovation from the leadership of the company.  The result is better software and this is what attracts customers to us.
