We are well into the beta release phase of our next POS software update. Following our well-established beta release program, this update is being used live in a range of locations to ensure that it is stable and useful prior to broader commercial release.

A robust beta program is vital to any software release, especially one where the software us used by well over 2,000 retail businesses like ours is.

Software updates don’t get top beta release without going through a multi-layered stringent QA process internally as well as use in our own retail businesses.

While these processes take time and delay the ultimate release of the software to our customers, the result is more stable and commercially useful software updates and our customers love us for that. Retailers tell us that they want software that is well-tested and proven before they decide when they will install it themselves.
