We are about to go commence live in-store testing of selling ‘soft’ items live from the point of sale screen. These are items loaded from a third party, live with vouchers, logos and the like printed as if the inventory is held locally within the business. This is very sexy stuff for our small business customers – being able to sell products without having the costs of carrying the stock. From a technology perspective it is sexy too, stretching the facilities of the software, especially in the way logos and the like are handled.
We are several weeks away from any announcement as to the substance of the new product as we want to make sure it all works as planned. When we do announce we’ll make a big noise since for our small business customers this will be big news. Being first with such innovations is very exciting.
