Not all POS software sold in Australia is made is Australia. Plenty are not supported in Australia.
While we are biased on this, Australian designed and supported POS software is best for Australian business needs.
But how can you tell if your software is from Australia? Easy, call the company, call their local office and ask. Better still, if possible, visit their local office and see for yourself.
Small business retailers more than most in business understand the importance of shopping local – for local communities, local employment and local funding of infrastructure.
If this is you, if you pitch shop local in your business, shop local for your own POS software. That positions you better to influence the software and to benefit from the local Aussie connection.
Do your homework. Look at the terminology used in the software, the design aesthetic, the accessibility of support, the tuning of training to your business, the opportunity for face to face in-store training. Do all this research and we think you will soon see the value of shopping local for POS software for your small or independent retail business.
Here Are reasons why Australian designed and supported POS software is better for Australian retail businesses.
- Local business knowledge is vital.
- Accessible support is essential.
- Specialty retail channels are different elsewhere.
- It is made for you and not a global market.
- You are close to the company and therefore more able to influence product direction.
- It is more likely to work with your suppliers.
- It is good for the country, good for your local community.
In looking for software, we suggest you start with your needs. Be clear and concise. Know what is not negotiable for you and stick to that.
We suggest you don’t get suckered into a free trial as that is how some companies get you, thinking you will become invested and not want to switch. Do your research and make a better decision to start with, a researched decision based on your needs.
Australian POS software has an excellent reputation. You can rely on having terrific options available to you.
