Every day we see the importance of a faster and more reliable broadband network in Australia.
Serving in excess of 2,500 retailers using our Point of Sale software, we see how retailers rely on fast access to suppliers for stock ordering, electronic invoices, price updates and other transactions. We also see how retailers are using our Point of Sale software to more efficiently market their businesses electronically by leveraging our marketing tools.
In too many retail situations, the current broadband coverage is inadequate, holding these businesses back. This has a knock-on effect through the economy.
As retailers rely more on online trading with suppliers and customers, a faster and more reliable broadband network becomes an essential service. This is why we, as a company, support the National Broadband Network. Politics aside, this is important infrastructure for Australia.
