Tower Systems announced to its Point of Sale software customers two weeks ago that support fees for 2012 would remain the same as they were in 2011, 2010 and 2009.

This decision provides our customers with certainty on the costs of maintaining their software and accessing our support services commented Mark Fletcher, Managing Director of Tower Systems. We are thrilled to be in a position to maintain software support fees for four years now.

While the company has maintained software support fees, it has continued to increase services provided to its customers … delivering more value today in 2012 than available in 2009.

All Tower Systems Point of Sale software customers pay a support fee which is published to all users and others who visit the company website. This transparency and the company’s public commitment to a universal approach to support fees is unusual in the vertical market software space.

We do not believe in special support rates to get someone to say good things about our software, commented Mark Fletcher. We want every one of our customers to say good things about us, this is why we take a universal and transparent approach to delivering support services, software updates and charging for these services.

In addition to holding support fees at their 2009 level, the company also announced support free discounts for customers who choose to pay support two or three years in advance.  These discounts offer retailers even more opportunities to reduce the costs of maintaining their software and accessing the Tower Help Desk.

The news about support fees remaining the same in 2012 as in 2011 was announced in the January 2012 newsletter which was mailed to all customers late last year.  The newsletter contained several New Year ‘gifts’ for Tower customers.

Tower Systems serves in excess of 2,500 retailers across a variety of marketplaces in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and papua New Guinea.
