News from Tower Systems about locally made POS software for specialty local retailers.

We are enjoying Toy Fair


Toy Fair is under way in Melbourne and it’s a terrific event, even though today is the first day.

It’s terrific catching up with old colleagues, and meeting plenty of new people.

We are here for our shops, in which we sell toys, our websites that offer toys and to pitch our toy shop software.

The software, including support, is only $155.00 a month, and you are not locked-in. The only other cost is for our one-on-one training.

Here are some questions we are asked, and our answers:

Can the software manage special orders for customers? Yes.

Can I report on past sales monthly for a year to guide what to order? Yes.
