Lightspeed, Vend which is owned by Lightspeed, Square and Eposnow are all overseas POS software companies spending up big to try and attract Aussie retailers to their POS software.

Whether deliberate or not, we often see Lightspeed, Vend which is owned by Lightspeed, Square and Eposnow competing with us in Google search results, often through ads they pay for to get ahead of us in search results.

Hey, it’s okay, competition is good for all of us in business.

The thing is, though, we cannot compete with Lightspeed, ]Vend which is owned by Lightspeed, Square and Eposnow on advertising spend.

Where we can compete with them is value, functionality and service. We think we compete well with each of Lightspeed, Vend which is owned by Lightspeed, Square and Eposnow on these important points.

What our software does, its functionality, is considerable, deep, and regularly evolving.

This depth sees us stand up well in comparison to other products.
