We were trying to fly under the radar with new functionality to be announced for our software in a few weeks. The plan was to sneak it into the software, play in our newsagency followed by a couple of other trusted colleagues and then announce to the world. We had not counted on some tech savvy users who saw a new software module delivered with our last update. So, an announcement is being planned for later this week.
What is exciting about the new facility is that it brings to the point of sale products newsagents have not had access to previously as well as products they have had to use additional hardware to sell.
What for us started as a labour and money saving innovation will be revenue generating once the full suite of additional products is announced.
Next time we’ll be sure to give our more tech savvy users a heads up.
