I had the privilege of speaking at a newsagent conference in Queensland yesterday.  My presentation was about the entrepreneurial newsagent.  In preparing for the presentation I spent considerable time checking in with the tools in our software which could help a newsagent or any independent retailer in their entrepreneurial pursuits.

While I was happy with the flexible views we provide for business performance – and thereby guide business decisions – I felt we could do more to help our users step outside their traditional business in pursuit of new opportunities.

In researching entrepreneurship among independent retailers overseas I have found some opportunities which are applicable to our customer base.  So, we will play in this space, going beyond the traditional facilities of point of sale and retail business management and explore how we can better help our customers step beyond tradition in pursuit of new customers and new revenue.
